The Unlikely Missionary

During the month when my book finally came out in a print version, I’m not surprised that it was the best-seller in this month’s list of stuff that our readers are picking up.

But one thing I think is nice to see in this month’s list is a focus on three key themes…

  1. Missions and missions preparation
  2. Spiritual growth
  3. Authentic Christianity

These themes would show that readers here are looking inward (personal/spiritual growth) for the purpose of pouring out into the world around them.

This makes me smile.

Check out what made this months list…
