Gary expresses the questions many have and provides the answers we need. Drawing from his wealth of experiences in ministry, Gary has taken the fear and unknown out of giving yourself to the Lord with very practical methods. This book will both challenge you and encourage you to be one of Jesus’ 21st century disciples reaching out to our post-Christian
generation. It is guaranteed to make you a better disciple of our Lord.

Gary Kendall has given his life to help people who are far from God, not just find their way back, but become fully devoted followers of Jesus Christ. He’s more passionate about church planting and disciple-making than anyone I know. What he shares isn’t theory, it’s lessons learned from 30 years of raising up Christ followers.

I have often heard the phrase, “backwards about going forward” as it related to a person who was indecisive. However, this book brings new meaning to the word, “backwards” for me. My friend and author Gary Kendall has given motion and meaning to the joy of Living Sent. Written by a master discipler, this book is a must for every believer.
