John in the John

Paperback, eBook

Nonfiction, humor

I've always said, "If you think you can never find time to get in the Word, leave a bible or devotional book on the back of your toilet." This book is meant for exactly that.

For most people, the Bible verse they know off the top of their head is John 3:16. For me, it's Philippians 4:13—and honestly it's because it was on a decorative, framed print on the wall of my childhood bathroom.

John in the John contains 61 devotional entries. Pick and choose. Read one daily. Read one entry weekly. Whatever works best for you, find a way to get more scripture in your life.

Some of my friends have literally "come to Jesus" while in the bathroom—one of the last private places where people can find some quiet time. Hopefully my "in the John" devotional series can help.

Why Your Pastor Left

Paperback, eBook, Audio

Nonfiction, Religion

Data, research, and stories about American pastoral decline.
Nine of ten ministers know three or more peers who've been forced out of pastoral positions; a third of all pastors serve congregations who either fired the previous minister or actively forced their resignation; and at any given time, 75% of pastors in America want to quit. American church decline has reached epidemic proportions and in the last century, church influence has waned nearly 60%. Pastoral attrition is either an indicator of that problem or a central part of it. Why Your Pastor Left is full of detailed statistics and identifies the top ten “Ministry Killers” that cause pastoral stress and eventual “burnout.”

Research is ongoing with many source statistics grossly outdated. Ministers, former ministers, and their wives are encouraged to take a brief survey to help update statistics about clergy hardships, eviction, and family matters.
