Jeff Goins is one of my favorite bloggers. Turns out he’s also one of my favorite authors. His book Wrecked: When A Broken World Slams into your Comfortable Life releases August 1, 2012.

When the passion goes away, it’s the practice that sustains us.

Wrecked is about living a life of sacrificial love. It’s about growing up and getting over ourselves. It’s about finding purpose in our suffering.

Jeff shares story after story (and yes, his own story of being wrecked) of folks loving people who are broken and busted up. Even when loving them isn’t comfortable. Or convenient. Or adventurous. Wrecked is a call to get off the couch and doing something. Anything.

As part of the Wrecked book launch team, I’ve read the book and have been wrecked all over again. I’m convicted of my apathy, my indifference to suffering, and my own small kingdom agenda.

If you want to be challenged, consider checking out Wrecked. Get the first 1/5 of the book free by going to www.wreckedthebook.com/free/. You can also go to the site and read stories of people whose lives have been wrecked. You can even share your own wrecked story.

One final note, Jeff is giving away $158 worth of freebies if you buy the book August 1 – 4th! Just go to www.wreckedthebook.com/buy and sign up.

Here’s to getting Wrecked all over again,
