I've just received confirmation that my blog has been selected to participate in Mark Batterson's Blog Tour for his new book, Primal: A Quest for the Lost Soul of Christianity, due out December 22 from Waterbrook Multnomah.

Here's the publisher's synopsis:
Be Astonished Again
We have a tendency to complicate Christianity. Jesus simplified it: Love God with all of your heart, soul, mind, and strength. If we are to live out the essence of Christianity, we must commit to being great at this Great Commandment.

In Primal, Mark Batterson explores the four elements of Great Commandment Christianity: compassion, wonder, curiosity, and power. Along the way, he calls you to be a part of God’s reformation, starting in your own life.

As Mark writes, “Is there a place in your past where you met God and God met you? A place where your heart broke for the things that break the heart of God? Maybe it was a sermon that became more than a sermon. Maybe it was a mission trip or retreat. Maybe it was a vow you made at an altar. In that moment, God birthed something supernatural in your spirit. You knew you’d never be the same again. My prayer is that this book would take you back to that burning bush—and reignite a primal faith.”

Primal will help you live in light of what matters most and discover what it means to love God. It will help you become great at the Great Commandment.

Sound good? Come back during the week of December 15-22 for my review. If you like what you've read about Primal and can't wait to read it for yourself, it's available for pre-order from Amazon in Canada or USA or at

UPDATE: Haven't yet received the book as of Dec. 20 so review will follow later than expected.

Disclosure: Other than receiving an advance copy of the book at no cost, I am not paid for my reviews. I strive to give unbiased reader response to each book I review.
