His book is insightful, inspiring, witty, and fun to read. His exposition of an obscure passage brings a man we know very little about into homes and most importantly, into our hearts.

Having spent a little bit of a time with Mark, he is living out what he’s writing about. He is chasing lions and encouraging everyone around him to do the same.

I think this book is refreshing. Too many books talk about what’s wrong with the church, people, the government, ________ (you fill in the blank) and offer no solutions. But this book challenges us to stop talking about what’s wrong and start making things right. For that, I’m thankful for having read Mark’s book!
