Fail: Finding Hope and Grace in the Midst of Ministry Failure


It’s been quite some time since I’ve written new content on the site and there’s one big reason for it: the past year I’ve been working on two book projects with InterVarsity Press. I’m just now coming up for air.

I’m proud to announce that the first project has been released: Fail: Finding Hope in the Midst of Ministry Failure. Thank you to so many of you for your encouragement, support and help along the way the past several months. I am grateful to work with a great publisher in IVP, whose team has been tremendous to work with.

Here are a few links about Fail that you may find helpful:

You can find the book here (or, if you are looking for a great alternative to Amazon, check here).

  1. I discovered your book as a result of Rachel Held Evans interview. I am 90% of the way through the book already and so much of it is highlighted I should have just colored the pages. I believe this should be required reading for all leaders and elder boards. I am preparing to step back into vocational ministry and this has been a sobering reminder and deep call to authenticity. I have been working as a spiritual director for several years and would like to think I have learned and know better – but I know just enough to know I truly don’t know. Thanks for your work, honesty and heart for leaders. I share thre same passion and mission and hope somewhere along the way change will come (wishful thinking?). Grace.
