Author/Artist Review

Author: Bill Giovannetti
Located in: Northern California
Submitted: January 10, 2009

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I live surrounded by the snow-capped peaks and pristine lakes of northern California, though at heart I'm a city boy. I was born and bred in the urban jungles of Chicago, where I got a street-level education on life. I'm a husband, dad, pastor, professor, author, and WWJD-wannabe. I instruct the mind in ways that touch the heart, tossing in a lot of humor along the way. If I can get you to laugh, I can shove a couple of truths while your mouth's open, and you'll hardly notice.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  I'm sick of legalism. I wrote the Inner Mess book to free Christians from the gigantic hamster wheel of duty, guilt, and shame. Christianity is not a "to do" list. It is "Christ in you." Most Christians suffer a fragmented view of what it means to follow Jesus. We get scraps of truth in sermons and books, but rarely fit the pieces together, like a puzzle without the top. This book offers the box top.

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  The discovery that WWJD is impossible by our power, but genuinely doable by God's.

    How were you personally impacted by working on this project?  Working on the Inner Mess book reminded me that when I give God my worst, he still gives me his best. God is more committed to me than I will ever be to him.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I've been influenced by a lifetime of great preachers and authors: Tozer, Spurgeon, Ray Stedman, C.S. Lewis, Warren Wiersbe, Erwin Lutzer, and so many more. I love how Donald Miller lays his heart on the line and how Louis L'Amour saddles up my Inner Gunslinger.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  I'm the pastor of a fast-growing church in northern California. You'll find a free, downloadable study guide, FAQ's and resources to help you quit being dominated by your Inner Mess at the book's website.
