My Book is in the Warehouse

I just got the coolest phone call I’ve ever received:

InterVarsity Press just called to tell me that my book, Love is an Orientation, just got delivered to their distribution warehouse!!!

So for all of you who have pre-ordered it (and thank you so very much for that!!!), it should be arriving some point soon! And this also means that soon it’ll be hitting a Borders and/or Barnes and Noble near you as well!

As soon as I go and pick up my copies, I’ll take some pictures to chronicle the experience and post them on the blog to share in this excitement together.

YEA! We did it, and the time is now!!!


Much love.

    Congrats! I am looking forward to this read. Do you have plans to train small group leaders to start this concept in other areas?

  • chatterbox

    I should have specified which "concept" – the Living in the Tension Community Gatherings.

  • Andrew Marin

    The Living in the Tension is one of the things that I am working on to put out in a “trainer” medium. But if you or your church is interested, I’d love to talk about how to connect and start that process. Feel free to email me at

    Much love.
