Have you become so wrapped up in routine church activities that you've lost sight of Jesus? Perhaps you've become "overly religious"! Encouraging you to shift your focus to Christ alone, Putman details 21 ways you can better follow the Lord. Discover how to practice simplicity, acceptance, love, forgiveness, hospitality, discipleship, and more.
David Putman serves as one of the pastors at Mountain Lake Church in
Atlanta, Georgia, where he focuses on issues related to growing the churchs
impact in its community and around the world. Having coached hundreds
of church planters across America since the 1980s, he is also recognized as
one of the catalysts of the current church planting movement. David and his
wife Tami have two children.
Over time, Christian people can run the risk of becoming too religious
too wrapped up in programmatic church activities and less focused on Christ
alone. In response, David Putman (Breaking the Missional Code) has written
a new book detailing twenty-one ways to reinstate the centrality of Jesus into
our daily lives. Divided into three action-ready topical areas (Live like Jesus,
Love like Jesus, Leave What Jesus Left Behind), Putman offers what he calls
detox for the overly religious. Here is a chance for you, your small group,
or your entire church to lose religion and rediscover Jesussimple and yet
profound, and all we really need.
