Broken Crown

by Chris Bell

In Broken Crown, Chris Bell gives readers a fresh look at the ancient account of King Saul’s tragic reign and the valuable lessons it holds for us today.

No one looked the part of a valiant leader and courageous warrior more than Israel’s first King. But Saul’s impressive facade masked a dark inner reality that would ultimately lead to a tragic downfall. Although chosen and transformed by God to lead the nation, Saul refused over and over again to allow God to mold him into a man worthy to wear the crown.

In his first book, Bell examines the often-neglected story of King Saul and reveals how the inner struggles that led to his broken crown and kingdom are the very issues that threaten to destroy our lives today.

In Broken Crown, discover how to confront your own brokenness and embrace the life of wholeness and freedom found only in the One True King.

Church Scattered

by Dan Greer

In this intentionally disruptive book, author and leadership development consultant Dan Greer clearly depicts how the cultural forces of change are negatively impacting the lives of individual Christians and the mission of the church. In post-Christian America, the church is in serious decline and unless a transformational leadership approach is taken—both in our homes and in our churches—that trend will only get worse. While the message of our faith is sacred, Greer says, our methods are not.

In his new book, Church ScatteredChristianity for the 21st Century, Greer offers transformational truths and biblical solutions to the crisis we face as Christians and as the church. Christianity must become more about a people living on mission than a place to attend on Sunday.

The Way of Jesus: Covered in the Dust of the Rabbi

by Mike Megginson

Something has happened to the simple yet radical and profound movement started 2,000 years ago by a Jewish carpenter from Nazareth. A movement that appeared to be dead on arrival with Jesus’ crucifixion in only a matter of days became a movement that would change the entire Roman Empire in the span of just 300 years.

Mike Megginson helps us look at the world around us, and ask the hard questions. Has this movement that began as a roar become only a whimper of everything Jesus intended? Is what we see today the same movement that swept across nations, that shaped history, and for which countless faithful have given everything, even their own lives?

It cannot be. There has to be more.

HEAD HONCHO

The ability to see the world clearly has always intrigued me. I love creating positive environments. Creativity mixed with purpose has fascinated me since I was a child. Social ecosystems are what I love to study and geek out on. The culmination of these things purposefully put together is what has led me to do what I do. See, my experiences have built the path I have learned to follow like a treasure map. So many of the things I’ve been able to achieve come from the curiosity to live a life worth telling about. My mother has been my greatest encourager. Growing up, she always told me there was nothing I couldn’t accomplish and I just believed her (thanks, Mom). So when I decided to take a camera and photograph the beach, hurricanes or jet engines, I did. When I decided that I could create social mechanisms on the web to publish and distribute books, I did that too. So if you want to know me, look at the way I live. There is no way on the planet I could live without the love of my life, my wife, Stephanie, my vivacious daughters Annabelle, Ava and Jane Addison, or my son Austin. Family first—everything else is just art.

I would love to connect and collaborate and, most importantly, see how we can work together to make the world a better place.
