Many of us believe this, and yet, somewhere along the way we have chosen comfort over obedience, familiarity over faithfulness. The passion we once felt for the Gospel has ebbed, and we primarily seek out the easy path in life. Discipleship seems hard and hardly worth the trouble. However, this is not the life Jesus intended when He gave His all for us. There's more to following Christ and it's more worthwhile and life-changing than you first thought.
In All In, Mark Batterson issues a call to believers to dethrone their personal desires and go "all in" for Christ. You may feel afraid to surrender your whole life to Jesus, but when you do, you'll discover that's when the real adventure of faith begins.

For the month of January, the church I go to has been using this book as our series for the new year. We go over the pastor's sermon and use of this book in our connect groups, and the results have been life changing. We recognize our faults, we understand the sacrifices needed in order to become All In for God so that we can be All Out for God! I really recommend this book for everyone. It really puts life into perspective.

This is a excellent book that is well written. Its format is an easy read for those who don't usually read books (me) and I'm certain a quick read for those who love to read books. You pick up snapshots of history that are then correlated to a story in scripture with real time applications for every situation in life! Amazing! Can't wait to read again! Burn The Ships!

Mark Batterson in his new book, â€œAll Inâ€ published by Zondervan tells us You Are One Decision Away From a Totally Different Life.
From the back cover: The Gospel costs nothing, but it demands everything. Itâ€™s all or nothing.
If Jesus is not Lord of all, then He is not Lord at all.
Many people believe they are following Jesus but they have mistakenly invited Jesus to follow them. Mark Batterson calls it the inverted gospel. He challenges you to go all in and all out by fully surrendering your life to the Lordship of Jesus Christ. That is when the true adventure begins.
Suppose you got on a train going Southbound then realized you were supposed to be on the Northbound train. Wouldnâ€™t you completely vacate the Southbound train to get a seat on the correct Northbound train? Of course you would. It would be impossible to leave apart of you going South while the rest of you went North. That is exactly the point that Mark Batterson is trying to make. He believe that we have mistakenly asked Jesus to follow us instead of doing what Jesus told us which is to follow Him. In five sections, seventeen chapters Pastor Batterson explores how we need to get realigned with the Word of God. Once we vacate our old ways of thinking and acting then we need to be all in on the new ways without carrying over some of the polluted thoughts and actions we currently have. Pastor Batterson challenges us to stretch ourselves using the Word of God and convinces us to get off the bench and in the game. I think that everyone should have a copy of this book and give it as a gift to friends and family so that they can be properly aligned as well. Everyone will be better off for it.

Once again Mark Batterson has hit it out of the park! Through the book the Holy Spirit has spoken to my heart about my having a plan B backup to have my way instead of trusting The Lord for things to go as He plans. I thought I was a follower, but in reality I want God to follow me. Total surrender keeps coming up time and time again. Now I have to trust God that he will show me how to totally surrender and not fight for control.
Mark is anointed!

After reading just one chapter, you will be so motivated to make a very important decision in your relationship to God. You will want to be "all in." Mark Batterson's writing is that compelling. It is a page turner. You will not want to put the book down.
