“Expect great things from God. Attempt great things for God.”
This was part of the Gospel-passion behind William Carey, an English Protestant missionary and Baptist minister, who God used to ignite much of what is the Christian presence in America today.
One of the “great thing(s)” I attempted was this book called, Four Years, Two Roads: Finding Eternal Signficance in High School. It was published February of last year.
I can sum the book’s premise like this.
- God saved me from my sins and hell in 7th grade.
- He poured blessings into my life during my high school years (Homecoming King, All-American in track and field to name two).
- I learned that following Jesus has never been, will be, or should be, the easy way. he says the opposite in Matthew 7:13-14
- Although a Christ-centered life is difficult as a student, it is the road of no regrets. More than that, on the “narrow road” is the eternal satisfaction we long for as human beings. We were made to be satisfied in God.
- So I decided to write something to encourage those who would now venture down that same road known as your high school years. You can find that encouragement now on Amazon or at your local bookstore.
It has been amazing to hear how God has used this message in the hearts of students around the United States, such as follows,
I cannot tell you enough how much I enjoyed your book! It is filled
with such Truth that has helped me change the way I view and live my
life as a christian. Your Godly example was shown throughout the
entire book and your love for Christ is inspiring, not only to me but
I am positive to those around you as well. Each chapter in the book is
amazing and I found myself rereading almost every one. Thank you so
much for being such a great example of what it means to walk the
narrow road and to live for Christ wholeheartedly.
I loved this book! As a Christian I have found it more than easy to
come up with with excuses to withdraw from the world around me. Four
Years Two Roads challenged me to put away my excuses, get involved,
build relationships, and then use those relationships and
opportunities to share the Gospel. Four Years Two Roads is biblically
sound and a great tool for high schoolers and beyond!
I received news last month that my book had been nominated for the Christian Small Publisher Book of the Year Award 2015.
Now I ask for your help.
