Put others first. . . . No, save yourself! A clash of cultures rages within every Christian. Learn to rise above you on the path to true discipleship! Writing with a warm, personal style, Macias offers a poignant call to cultivate a heart of grace and mercy---and follow Jesus in a life of sacrificial service. 224 pages, softcover from New Hope.
Written in a warm, personal, and easy-to-read-and-understand style, Beyond Me is an invitation to pursue true discipleship. Beyond Me will help you clearly see the distinction between your ever-increasing clash of cultures--the clash between life and death or, in other words, wanting to live in such a way that puts others first but struggling with your desire for self-preservation. Full of poignant, humorous, but always vulnerable and meaningful examples, Beyond Me has current, historical, and biblically documented insights and teachings to support this higher calling for believers to walk in the footsteps of Jesus. Each chapter contains interactive application questions, and the content addresses such topics as having a heart that is conciliatory, merciful, and gracious; loves unconditionally; seeks God and His righteousness first; depends on God; and answers the call to sacrificial service.

Tell us a little about yourself. I've wanted to be a writer since I was a young child. I published my first book twenty years ago, and feel so blessed that God has granted me the desire of my heart.
What was your motivation behind this project? This is the "book of my heart." Unlike my other books, I worked on this one for many years. It contains much of the story of what God has done in my life since He first "ambushed" me in 1974, and I am so grateful to finally see it in print.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? I hope readers will fall more deeply in love with the Father, who loves us scandalously and unreservedly--and calls us to do the same for others.
How were you personally impacted by working on this project? Throughout the book I was confronted with the dark places in my heart and life that I thought were gone--but weren't. The final chapter tells of the life-and-death trauma that brought it all into focus.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? I have many, but I would have to say Brennan Manning and Henri Nouwan had the greatest impact on me throughout the writing of this book.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: I want them to know that God has called us to the impossible--and has promised to enable us to fulfill that calling.
