Primal: The 1st Book of 2010

In one week, "Primal" by Mark Batterson will become available at your local bookstore. I want to join Mark in encouraging you to be a part of the primal movement. Without a doubt, Primal should be the first book you read in 2010, & if you need a last minute Christmas gift, try to pick it up next week before Christmas.

In Primal, Mark invites believers to journey with him down the "2000 stairs" back to Christianity in its most raw, primal form: the Great Commandment. Believers are encouraged to become "great at the Great Commandment". Mark uses his unique style that blends his love for history, neurology, astrophysics, & theology to rethink what it means to love God with all of one's heart, soul, mind, & strength.

Mark's other works, "In A Pit With A Lion On A Snowy Day" and "Wild Goose Chase", have set Mark apart as one of the great young leaders in the church. In "Primal", Mark challenges God's people to be a part of the "next reformation", to rediscover that ancient command that sets believers apart in this world: love the Lord your God with all your heart & with all your soul & with all your mind & with all your strength.

I'm excited to see how God uses Mark's words to challenge this generation to embrace Christianity in its most primal form & to see how this generation will be a part of sparking a New Reformation. I'll be sharing more from Primal as the week goes on, so check back to learn more.
