So in my writing over the last couple of years, I've sought to talk about being missional in a way that relates to everyday people. The results will hit the shelves next month in the form of Difference Makers. My aim was to write about a theme in a way that relates to the average person, the kind of person who goes to work everyday — as an accountant, a teacher, a factory worker — and does not have the time or the energy to read thick books about what it means to be a "missional" Christian.
- The chapters are very short. There are 40 of them and they can be read daily for 40 days. Or if person wants to bite off bigger chunks the short chapters are grouped into seven sections.
- Each of the seven sections includes practical experiments that the reader can do in order to grow in their difference making journey.
- There are seven small group discussion guides included at the back, and I will soon have youtube.com videos that will accompany them.
- I'm also now writing seven sermon outlines that a pastor can adapt to teach while the church reads this book together.
One reviewer commented, "I hesitate to call Scott Boren's Difference Makers a book because reading it is more like submitting to a tutor, a coach, a spiritual guide. Pastors, Christians, no more conferences, please. Instead, read this book."--David Fitch
