firstname.lastname@example.org NYT Best Seller One Month to Live Celebrates 10 Years with Anniversary Edition “If you want new urgency, fresh purpose, and a sharper focus for your life, then this book is for you. Read it and your future may be changed forever!”—Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ
If you only had one month to live, what would you change? Kerry Shook and his wife Chris Shook, founders of Woodlands Church in Texas, revisit this life-changing question in their 10th Anniversary Edition of ONE MONTH TO LIVE: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life (8/7/18, WaterBrook)
With its first publication in 2008, One Month to Live
became a national phenomenon with 7,000 churches as well as several small towns taking the One-Month-to-Live Challenge. Since then, it has sold nearly 500,000 copies.
The anniversary edition includes a new note from the authors reflecting on the last 10 years. They write, “When we wrote One Month to Live
ten years ago, we had no idea that God would use it to impact hundreds of thousands of people to live more intentional lives. All we knew was that God had put on our hearts a question that forever changed our lives.” One Month to Live
carries the authors’ vital message to which they are devoted—“how to experience life to the fullest by living passionately and purposefully, the way we were created to live.” Kerry and Chris Shook encourage readers to embrace the fact that their time on earth is limited, to break out of their “someday syndrome,” and to begin living more deliberately.
Designed to guide readers through living their next 30 days as if they are their last, the book shares four main principles for leading a no-regrets life that are then broken down into daily readings:
· Live passionately
· Love completely
· Learn humbly
· Leave boldly
This September, Woodlands Church will be encouraging their 18,000 weekly attendees to live out these four principles as they hold a church-wide One-Month-to-Live Challenge.
Both new and seasoned participants of the One-Month-to-Live Challenge will experience a powerful calling on their lives to embark on an incredible adventure of discovery, joy and purposeful contentment, remembering that time—because it is limited—is our most precious commodity.
