Using a Q&A format, he shares how he committed himself to a radically Christ-centered life, how his decision affected him and his family, and how the church he pastors responded. A powerful discipleship tool!

What is Jesus worth to you?
Its easy for American Christians to forget how Jesus said his followers would actually live, what their new lifestyle would actually look like. They would, Jesus said, leave behind security, money, convenience, even family for him. They would abandon everything for the gospel. They would take up their crosses daily…
But who do you know who lives like that? Do you?
