I’m sorry I’ve not been able to keep this updated of late. Way too busy with lots of other projects. But I thought you’d enjoy reading a few letters I’ve received in the meantime..

I’ve been on a journey for 25 years now with God following Him all over the place. The struggles of how to frame the local church has been an internal conflict for years now. My ways and beliefs threaten those around me sometimes and I wonder if I’m way off base somedays with God. Your book was comforting to read and reminds me that my journey with God can look different then others and it’s OK.

Your book has been used by God to change my life. Several months ago I was reffered to you by a man at a online book store. I had told him some of my story of comming out of the institutional church and how I was confused about who to listen to or read. You responded to my emails and were helpful. Then I found your book the other day and I cannot stop reading it. I just wanted to ssay thank you. This book answered many of my questions as well as opened up a multitude of new ones. But God will answer them in time.
I had the opportunity to give out a few of the Jake books on a recent trip to Asia. I talked to a few missionary folks who are on a very similar journey as mine. I thought you might enjoy some comments one of them made concerning the book:
“Loved the book. absolutely loved it. Finished it on the plane coming back from Chengdu and handed it off to Jon. It’s marked up bigtime; I also wrote a ton of notes on the back pages, highlights from the book that really jumped out at me. Perhaps the biggest thing for me that the book did is underline the importance of avoiding all reactive thinking. House church can easily morph into just another institution. What really matters is people connecting with Jesus and each other and that can happen in many different formats and venues. I was also impacted with the fact that its about pointing people to Christ, not guilt inducing them through accountability structures, etc. Man, I could say much more but I’m far behind in my email and would rather talk about it person.”
