Beyond Me: Living a You-First Life in a Me-First World

By: Kathi Macias

Catch the vision beyond yourself … and come face-to-face with the cause of Christ.
Just as you peer into a mirror and see your reflection, author Kathi Macias in Beyond Me invites you to delve into Scripture and come face-to-face with the power of God’s Word as He reveals to you the image of a true disciple. If you are dissatisfied with your present spiritual condition, Beyond Me will help you understand the calling, the costs, and the benefits of true discipleship. As you read the powerful stories and embrace the practical insights on how to model a life focused on God and others, you will begin to reflect the image of a true disciple—one who seeks an intimate relationship with the Lord and His people, and one who serves Him and others with your whole heart. As a result, those around you will see the reflection of Christ.

“Kathi Macias’s Beyond Me gently reaches out to readers and says, ‘There is more for you in the Christian life.’ No matter where we are on the spiritual pathway, she warmly encourages us to keep moving forward. Her section on the parable of the prodigal son, for example, contains some of the most insightful writing I’ve read in a long time.”
—Cecil Murphey, best-selling author of 90 Minutes in Heaven and more than 100 other books.

God Meetings: Building Leadership & Prevent Ministry Shipwreck

By: Dave Beckwith with Joanne Beckwith

The landscape of Christianity is deeply scarred by wounded pastors and disillusioned board members who love God but have been betrayed by a failed system. It’s time for a far-reaching change.

Jesus told his disciples that leaders in the world throw their weight around and flaunt their authority, but “among you it will be different” (Mt. 20:26 NLT). Distinctly different! Radically different! Not a dressed-up, warmed-over Christian version of the world’s system, but a uniquely powerful way of doing things that is quite contrary to the world’s idea of leadership.

“… needs to be read by every pastor in ministry. I see this as the future textbook for practical theology … in seminaries and Bible colleges!” —Dr. Rex Johnson, Professor in Christian Min. & Leadership, Biola Univ. & Talbot (ret.)

“This is the ‘how to do’ book for pastors and church boards to work together and win!” —Les Steckel, Pres. of FCA (ret.), veteran NFL Coach, Colonel USMCR
