This conversation on one of our Best Books of 2020 will be hosted in our private Facebook group for church leaders:


NOTE: Since it is a private Facebook group, you will need to answer several simple questions before you will be approved for the group.

We will follow a plan for reading/discussion over the course of the month, and we might try to schedule a live video discussion sometime in the second half of the month (and MAYBE try to get one or both of the authors to join that?)

You are invited to join us! 

  • Make sure that you’ve joined and been approved for the Facebook group.
  • Get a copy of the book.
  • More details about our conversation will be coming in the next week or two.
