The Rich Young Ruler

One danger with the most familiar passages in scripture is the belief that you’ve aready squeezed all the juicy goodness out of it and that they have nothing new to offer.

The Rich Young Ruler is one of those texts that most Christians have heard a few Sunday messages built around.

Is America headed for a recession?

But the messages God’s Spirit can bring to bear on even the most familiar verses are as varied as the personalities of the ministers who deliver them.

So of course you can expect a little something different in that old familiar story when it’s filtered through a guy from West Texas who spent his teen years as an absolute Hellraiser before the Spirit of God grabbed him by the collar and set him straight.

Because loving someone enough to grab them by the collar and tell them they’re out of line — when nobody else will — is a big part of what is going on here.

John The Baptist: A Rude Awakening Precedes A Great Awakening.

This timely little tome chronicles the politically incorrect ministry of one of God’s most effective wildmen, John the Baptist, who prepared the way for Christ’s ministry.

The abrasive message of repentance John preached 2000 years ago is still confrontational and offensive today — but it is also life-changing.

In our putrid, worldly culture that has turned away from God, this book is a must-read for every Christian.

Available in paperback for those of you who like the feel of the pages in your hot, little hands, on Kindle to keep it right at your fingertips, and as an epic Audiobook.
