I‘d love to hear them. Share in the comments.
I’ve finally decided to do something that’s been long overdue. After my next 3 book projects, beginning in 2018, I’m going to take a sabbatical from writing books. It may last 1-5 years. Not sure yet, but I’m SO looking forward to the break. Let me explain.
Since 2008, I’ve been releasing 1 to 2 print books a year. And about the same amount of digital books. And quite frankly, I’m exhausted. Here’s the complete list:
***Hardcover & Softcover Books (also on Kindle, Nook, and most are on CD or MP3 audio)***
Pagan Christianity (with George Barna) – 2008
Reimagining Church – 2008
From Eternity to Here – 2009
Finding Organic Church – 2009
Jesus Manifesto (with Leonard Sweet) – 2010
Revise Us Again – 2011
Jesus: A Theography (with Leonard Sweet) – 2012
God’s Favorite Place on Earth – 2013
Jesus Now – 2014
The Day I Met Jesus (with Mary DeMuth) – 2015
Jesus Speaks (with Leonard Sweet) – 2016
***Digital Books from 2008-2016***
Rethinking the Will of God
Discipleship in Crisis
Rethinking the Mission
Rethinking the Spirit
Rethinking the Church
Rethinking Spiritual Growth
Rethinking Conventional Christianity
Pouring Holy Water on Strange Fire
When the Pages Are Blank
Straight Talk to Pastors
I counted them up the other day and it comes to 26 volumes in 8 years. I feel the publishing fatigue even as I write the list. Here’s what I have left.
***Books to Release in the Next Two Years***
There Must Be More – a titanic 800-page hardcover that’s over 8.5 x 11 in size. Preorders will be taken n July. Limited quantity made. Only one printing. A collectible. Only available through my weekly email list.
My book on the kingdom of God – releases October 2017 (in the editing phase)
The Untold Story of the New Testament Church — Revised and Expanded with new cover and new title – releases October 2018
After that, I’m done. I’ll be joining the ranks of most authors who put out a book every 3 to 5 years. I figure that most of my readers haven’t read all of my books yet, so why keep cranking out new ones?
Btw/ during the time I’m not writing books I’ll still be blogging, holding Mastermind events, and running The Deeper Christian Life Network.
