For an author, waiting for a book to release can feel like forever because there is typically about a year between labor and delivery! But the wait is finally over. ALL IN releases September 24! In fact, just had the first bookstore sighting!
I’m not sure how to categorize the book, but I think of it as my sucker punch. It’s certainly motivational. And the subtitle is probably my personal favorite–you are one decision away from a totally different life. But the book will get in your face and dare you to die to self. At the end of your life, your greatest regrets will be whatever we didn’t give back to God.The good news is this: if you don’t hold out on God, God won’t hold out on you.
The book revolves around what I call the inverted gospel. While most people in most churches would claim to be following Christ, I think many of them have invited Jesus to follow them. But it doesn’t work that way. Either Jesus is Lord of all or He isn’t Lord at all. It’s all or nothing. All In is a call to complete consecration–to ante up everything and go all in with God. You can’t just follow the rules. You’ve got to follow Jesus. That’s when the true adventure begins!Sep 21, 2013 | Mark Batterson
