It's an honor to welcome Andrew Wommack to the show to unpack some of the powerful teachings in his new book The Power of Imagination: Unlocking Your Ability to Receive from God.

About the Book:  Too often believers pray for healing but never experience it. They pray for prosperity but never receive it. Why? Because they don’t know how to use a godly imagination correctly. They don’t see themselves healed. They don’t see themselves prosperous. They don’t see themselves victorious. In The Power of Imagination, Andrew Wommack will unlock the power of your imagination and explain how you can put it to work giving you hope for the future. Without it, you’ll never fulfill God’s plan for your life. Circumstances will divert you and hardship will steal from you. But with it, you won’t be able to lose for winning! Never underestimate the power of your imagination!

About the Author:  Since 1968, Andrew Wommack has taught God’s Word with clarity and simplicity, emphasizing the unconditional love and grace of God. His vision is to spread the Gospel as far and deep as possible through his daily Gospel Truth television and radio programs, broadcast nationally and internationally, as well as through GospelTruth.tv, his internet television network. Andrew founded Charis Bible College in 1994 and has established more than sixty Charis campuses in cities across America and around the world. He has authored dozens of books, many of which have been translated into foreign languages. Much of his extensive library of materials is available free of charge at awmi.net. Andrew has been married to his wife, Jamie, since 1972. They have two sons and one granddaughter.

Over the past 20 years, Bruce Deel has helped over 20,000 people in the most dangerous zip code of Atlanta escape the cycle of homelessness, joblessness, and drug abuse. In his new book Trust First, he shares the powerful true stories of these men and women who fell through the cracks in our social services system and shows that intentionally choosing radical trust unlocked the power needed to transform their lives.

About the Book:  When Deel took over The Mission Church in 1997, he had orders to shut it down. Its neighborhood has the highest crime rate per capita in Georgia, the highest rate of incarceration, the highest homeless population per capita, a less than 50 percent high school graduation rate, and a 40 percent unemployment rate.

After preaching that Sunday, Bruce was approached by a woman he didn't know. "I've been hooking and stripping for 14 years," she said, "Can you help me?" Soon 17 people, in addition to the Deels, had moved in the old church -- pregnant girls, single mothers and their children, upstairs; and two or three single men in the basement. Bruce began going before judges to speak up for drug addicts and vandals, offering to supervise them as an alternative to jail.

Today, City of Refuge has a 200,000 square foot campus in the same zip code. It is a one-stop-shop for transitional housing, on-site medical and mental health care, childcare, and vocational training, including accredited intensives in auto tech, culinary arts, and coding. While most social services focus on one pain point and leave the burden on the poor to find the crosstown bus that'll serve their other needs, Deel argues that bringing someone out of homelessness requires treating all of their needs simultaneously.

This book shows how to break the cycle of poverty once and for all. It provides a moving window into the lives of the ex-cons, drug addicts, human trafficking survivors, and displaced individuals who've come through the City of Refuge program. Heartfelt, deeply personal, and inspiring, Trust First will break down your assumptions about whether anyone is ever truly a lost cause. Bruce will donate a portion of his proceeds from Trust First to the charitable organization City of Refuge

About the Author:  Bruce Deel is the founder and CEO of City of Refuge, and the senior pastor of the Mission Church. As a result of his experience and success, Bruce has become a highly sought after speaker and serves as a consultant to numerous nonprofits around the country. He and his wife, Rhonda have five daughters.

Winfield Bevins joins me in this episode to discuss his book Ever Ancient, Ever New: The Allure of Liturgy for a New Generation.

About the Book:  For many years now, the church in North America has heard figure after figure concerning the steady flow of young people leaving the church. In the midst of these troubling figures, there remains a glimmer of hope for these youth as they transition into young adults. Ever Ancient, Ever New tells the story of a generation of younger Christians from different backgrounds and traditions who are finding a home and a deep connection in the church by embracing a liturgical expression of the faith.

Author and teacher Winfield Bevins introduces you to a growing movement among younger Christians who are returning to historic, creedal, and liturgical reflections of Christianity. He unpacks why and how liturgy has beckoned them deeper into their experience of Jesus, and what types of churches and communities foster this "convergence" of old and new. Filled with stories illustrating the excitement and joy many young adults have found in these ancient expressions of Christianity, this book introduces you to practices and principles that may help the church as it seeks to engage our postmodern world.

About the Author: Winfield Bevins is the Director of Church Planting at Asbury Theological Seminary. He frequently speaks at conferences on a variety of topics and is a regular adjunct professor at several seminaries. As an author, one of his passions is to help others connect to the roots of the Christian faith for spiritual formation and mission. His latest book, Ever Ancient Ever NewThe Allure of Liturgy for a New Generation examines young adults who have embraced Christian liturgy and how it has impacted their lives. He and his wife Kay have three beautiful girls Elizabeth, Anna Belle, and Caroline and live in the Bluegrass state of Kentucky.

J.P. Moreland shares his story of overcoming anxiety and the practices he picked up along the journey that helped him find peace.

About the Book:  Bracing and honest, Finding Quiet will validate the experiences of believers with mental illness, remind them they are not alone, and provide reassurance that they can not only survive but thrive again.

In May 2003 prominent philosopher, author, and professor J. P. Moreland awoke in the middle of the night to a severe panic attack. Though often anxious by temperament and upbringing, Moreland had never experienced such an incident before. Thus began an extended battle with debilitating anxiety and depression.

More than a decade later, Moreland continues to manage mental illness. Yet along the way he's moved from shame and despair to vulnerability and hope. In Finding Quiet Moreland comes alongside fellow sufferers with encouragement and practical, hard-won advice. According to the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, nearly 20 percent of Americans suffer from mental illness, and people in the pews are not immune. Moreland explores the spiritual and physical aspects of mental illness, pointing readers toward sound sources of information, treatment, and recovery.

Moreland is one of the leading evangelical thinkers of our day.  He is distinguished professor of philosophy at Talbot School of Theology and director of Eidos Christian Center.

Honored to welcome Wm. Paul Young to The Shaun Tabatt Show. We talk about The Shack, living life with no secrets, and a few of the bold statements he makes in his book Lies We Believe About God.

About the Book:  From the author of the twenty million plus copy bestselling novel The Shack and the New York Times bestsellers Cross Roads and Eve comes a compelling, conversational exploration of the wrong-headed ideas we sometimes have and share about God.

Wm. Paul Young has been called a heretic for the ways he vividly portrays God’s love through his novels. Here he shares twenty-eight commonly uttered and sometimes seemingly innocuous things we say about God. Paul exposes these as lies that keep us from having a full, loving relationship with our Creator.

With personal anecdotes and sharing the compassion readers felt from the “Papa” portrayed in The Shack—now a major film starring Sam Worthington and Octavia Spencer—Paul encourages readers to think anew about important issues including sin, religion, hell, politics, identity, creation, human rights, and helping us discover God’s deep and abiding love.

About the Author:  William Paul Young was born in Canada and raised among a Stone Age tribe by his missionary parents in the highlands of former New Guinea. He suffered great loss as a child and young adult and now enjoys the “wastefulness of grace” with his family in the Pacific Northwest. He is the author of Lies We Believe About God and the New York Times bestsellers The ShackCross Roads, and Eve.

I enjoyed chatting with Alex Seeley at NRB 2018 about her book Tailor Made: Discover the Secret to Who God Created You to Be.

About the Book:  From an early age Alex Seeley was told she was an accident, but she also carried the weight of feeling stupid. Labels like these, sometimes spoken over us by well-meaning people, can cause us to believe lies about ourselves that make us question why we were born and what our purpose on earth could be. Yet, according to Psalm 139, God designed us in His image with a unique DNA and amazing characteristics! We are loved and created for a purpose that only we can fulfill.

In Tailor Made, Alex helps us recognize our wrong thinking often brought on by generational patterns, insecurities, circumstances, lack of forgiveness, and an inaccurate view of God our Father, and offers to replace them with a new view of who God says we are our personal destiny. It’s time to find your own sense of belonging and the path to becoming the original, authentic version of you that God intended!

About the Author:  Alex Seeley was born and raised in Australia and spent seventeen years pastoring there. It is also where she met and married her husband, Henry. After relocating to Nashville in 2012, they founded The Belonging Co., a church where they minister together to thousands of people each week. She is a passionate teacher of the Word with the unique ability to reveal how the Word of God is applicable to our everyday lives.

About the Author:  Shari Rigby made her start modeling and doing commercials. After moving to Los Angeles, she began a career in acting at an age when most actresses were retiring. Her most recent feature films include Not Today, which received seven awards, and October Baby, named one of the Top 15 Impressive Box Office Performances of 2012 by CNN.

It's an honor to welcome marketing guru Jay Baer to the show to talk about his and Daniel Lemin's spectacular book Talk Triggers: The Complete Guide to Creating Customers with Word of Mouth.

About the Book:  Word of mouth is directly responsible for 19% of all purchases, and influences as much as 90%. Every human on earth relies on word of mouth to make buying decisions. Yet even today, fewer than 1% of companies have an actual strategy for generating these crucial customer conversations. Talk Triggers provides that strategy in a compelling, relevant, timely book that can be put into practice immediately, by any business.

The key to activating customer chatter is the realization that same is lame. Nobody says "let me tell you about this perfectly adequate experience I had last night." The strategic, operational differentiator is what gives customers something to tell a story about. Companies (including the 30+ profiled in Talk Triggers) must dare to be different and exceed expectations in one or more palpable ways. That's when word of mouth becomes involuntary: the customers of these businesses simply MUST tell someone else.

Talk Triggers contains:

  • Proprietary research into why and how customers talk
  • More than 30 detailed case studies of extraordinary results from Doubletree Hotels by Hilton and their warm cookie upon arrival, The Cheesecake Factory and their giant menu, Five Guys Burgers and their extra fries in the bag, Penn & Teller and their nightly meet and greet sessions, and a host of delightful small businesses
  • The 4-5-6 learning system (the 4 requirements for a differentiator to be a talk trigger; the 5 types of talk triggers; and the 6-step process for creating talk triggers) 
  • Surprises in the text that are (of course) word of mouth propellants

Consumers are wired to discuss what is different, and ignore what is average. Talk Triggers not only dares the reader to differentiate, it includes the precise formula for doing it. 

Combining compelling stories, inspirational examples, and practical how-to, Talk Triggers is the first indispensable book about word of mouth. It's a book that will create conversation about the power of conversation.

About the Authors:

Jay Baer is a 7th generation entrepreneur, author of 6 best-selling books, and founder of five multi-million dollar companies. He's the founder of Convince & Convert a marketing consultancy that helps the world's most iconic brands grow. He is a hall of fame keynote speaker and emcee, and co-host of the Social Pros podcast.

Daniel Lemin is a respected authority on the reputation industry, a consultant for prominent Fortune 500 companies, a frequent public speaker, and an analyst with Convince & Convert. He is the author of Manipurated, and the co-founder of Selectivor, a food intelligence start-up.

Honored to have Ken Wytsma back on the podcast sharing about his book Redeeming How We Talk: Discover How Communication Fuels Our Growth, Shapes Our Relationships, and Changes Our Lives.

About the Book:  Technology has made it easier than ever before to share just about everything: pictures, ideas, even the ups and downs of your morning errand run. Yet all our talking doesn't seem to be connecting us the way it promised to. That's because we don't need to talk more, we need to talk better.

Redeeming How We Talk explores what the Bible has to say about that central aspect of life and relationships--conversation. The Scriptures show us that words have remarkable power--to create, to bless, to encourage, to forgive. Imagine how we could spark change in our families, churches, and communities if we learned to use words like Jesus did. By weaving together theology, history, and philosophy, Ken Wytsma and A. J. Swoboda help us reclaim the holiness of human speech and the relevance of meaningful conversation in our culture today.

About the Author:  Ken Wytsma is a leader, innovator, and social entrepreneur. Ken is the lead pastor at Village Church--A Multicultural Community in Christ. He is also the founder of Kilns College, where he teaches courses on philosophy and justice, and the founder of The Justice Conference--a yearly international conference that exposes men and women to a wide range of organizations and conversations relating to justice and the biblical call to give our lives away. Ken lives in Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Tamara, and their four daughters.

Honored to have Ken Wytsma on the show sharing about his fabulous book Create vs. Copy: Embrace Change. Ignite Creativity. Break Through with Imagination.

About the Book:  Today’s leaders simply can’t succeed without putting creativity in their toolbox.

If you don’t think you’re creative, that may sound discouraging. But take heart: creativity can be taught and practiced, and Create v. Copy shows you how.

This short, punchy book explores various aspects of creativity and imagination and leads you toward a healthy, confident, more innovative life mindset. It celebrates the good news of your God-given capacity to create and helps you harness it to take charge of your life, navigate changing times, and ultimately, flourish and succeed. 

Having traveled to dozens of countries, founded the leading international conference on justice and theology, and collaborated with scores of nonprofits, Wytsma is uniquely fit to help us be culture-shapers in a world of global change. He blends theology, history, and cultural observation to show us what being God’s creative image-bearers might look like today.

Whether you're a parent, CEO, pastor, or politician, this fresh look at contemporary leadership will challenge the way you view your position of influence, and it will equip you to adapt and thrive in our perplexing yet exciting cultural climate.

It's an honor to welcome my friend Joel Richardson back to The Shaun Tabatt Show to talk about the amazing discoveries he made during his on-location research for his book Mount Sinai in Arabia: The True Location Revealed.

About the Book:  Mount Sinai is the very place where God’s presence was revealed in “a blazing fire” (Hebrews 12:18). This is the mountain where Elijah fled to and heard the “still small” voice of God (1 Kings 19). It is also likely the place where Paul the apostle traveled to shortly after his conversion experience to receive a fuller revelation of his gospel from heaven. It is a mountain that is literally drenched with divine history. So where is Mount Sinai?

The debate over where the true Mount Sinai is located goes back thousands of years. Since the popularization of the view that Jebel al-Lawz in Saudi Arabia is the real location by American explorers Ron Wyatt, Bob Cornuke and Jim and Penny Caldwell, the debate has only raged all the more. Join New York Times bestselling author and internationally recognized teacher Joel Richardson as he explores the many reasons why this controversial location is by far the best candidate for the true “Mountain of God.”

With the Kingdom of Saudi Arabia presently building a mega-city known as Neom around this ancient mountain, Mount Sinai in Arabia highlights the many reasons why Jebel al-Lawz is by far the best candidate to be the true “Mountain of God.”

Complete with more than fifty full-color photographs and maps Mount Sinai in Arabia looks at

  • the biblical evidence for Mount Sinai being in the land of Midian;
  • Mount Sinai in ancient Jewish, Christian, and Islamic traditions;
  • the evidence that Paul journeyed to Mount Sinai;
  • the discovery of Moses’ altar and the golden calf altar;
  • a massive split rock located near Jebel al-Lawz;
  • Egyptian-like petroglyphs depicting cows;
  • paintings of archers guarding the base of the mountain;
  • Jethro’s caves;
