‘Christianish: What If We’re Not Really Following Jesus at All?‘ by Mark Steele (David C. Cook) is available for FREE download on the Amazon US Kindle site. Just click here to download! Also at Amazon CA.
It may feel like authentic faith. It may even look like the real deal. Yet it’s often easy to settle for the souvenir t-shirt—the appearance of a transformed heart—instead of taking the actual trip through true life-change. We find ourselves settling for a personal faith that’s been polluted by culture, and diluted by other people’s take on spirituality.
Christianish tells the story of one man’s journey to move from the in-between to a life that’s centered on Christ. To move forward, author Mark Steele goes back to the beginning, to examine Christ’s life and words. Through stories and insights that are sometimes profound, often hilarious, and always honest, Mark delivers a compelling look at what our faith is all about.

Pulled from decades of pastoral experience, Wiersbe and Sugden provide answers that you won’t find in seminaries—answers that both new and experienced pastors need to know to survive and thrive in ministry.
