For three years --- roughly 1,000 days --- Jesus served in public ministry while on earth. He didn’t need to do this ministry, yet he did anyway, and that’s the key for us. This intentionality implies that there is a lot of information in Scripture that we need to grapple with. We need to understand what Jesus said and did during his 1,000-day public ministry, so we can apply his teachings to our lives today.
The message of All In is simple: if Jesus is not Lord of all then Jesus is not Lord at all. It's all or nothing. It's now or never. Kneeling at the foot of cross of Christ and surrendering to His Lordship is a radical act of dethroning yourself and enthroning Christ as King. It's also an act of disowning yourself. Nothing belongs to you. Not even you.

When President McCain dies and Sarah Palin becomes president, the reader, along with the nation, stumbles down a terrifyingly credible path toward theocracy, realizing too late that the Christian right meant precisely what it said.

FAITH IN THE FOG, by bestselling author, Jeff Lucas, explores the doubts and fears that many Christians feel when walking through a spiritual fog, when doubts about faith undermine the joy of belief. Jeff builds the book around the beautiful early morning breakfast that Jesus cooked for his weary friends - the episode described in great detail in John 21. They found themselves in the fog bank of unresolved shame, failure, and confusion. What Jesus did to help them --- and what he didn't do --- is enlightening and inspirational --- and the narrative allows for gentle prose, Jeff will entwine some of his own story. The book will be very focused on the person of Jesus and the way he approaches those who are worn out when life is tough.
