This is a second edition book. There are a few updated edits, but most importantly many readers requested an edition that was easier to carry with them than the typical 8 x 10 Bible Study manual. I think you will enjoy this edition. Below is a glimpse into the goals of this study. Peace Why does God care so intensely about our behavior; about His children being negative? Besides the strife that negative attitudes and actions bring to your life and the lives of those around you, habitual negativity has its own list of physical and emotional effects. Most importantly, negativity keeps us separated from God. If we are caught up in negative attitudes, behaviors, and emotions then we have constructed stumbling blocks and walls between our Lord and Creator (who loves us dearly and craves an intimate relationship with each of us) and ourselves. Fasting is a means of cleansing and drawing close to God. What better way to rid your body of the ill effects of negativity than to fast and be in continual communication with our Lord?
Many congregations and church leaders are faced with the collapse of the institutional church culture in America. A great number of them have retreated inside their four walls and created church activities to replace their Christ-given mission to make disciples, and thereby extending His kingdom on earth "thy kingdom come." Abandoning their mission means they have abandoned their real identity and reason for existence. Others have gone to the other extreme by selling out to the culture. Their worship service is a form of entertainment with the objective "to feel good" and "be happy." Both choices have turned off many saved people, and they have left the church. In 1998, a Barna poll reflected that 20 million born-again Christians had withdrawn their membership. Today's poll shows an increase to 115,000 million. Many are out there striving to reboost the church's lost mission "to make disciples" and "thy kingdom come." God has not changed His mind!

In this material, you will read about Dave and Will who developed gardens on wasteland in inner city London council estates, encouraging residents to be part of the process of renewal and creativity by growing plants and vegetables. Will hosts community harvest feasts, bringing together local residents to eat their own locally-grown produce. Andy in his 20s, started a lunch club for isolated elderly people, rallying his student friends to help serve homemade meals in a borrowed church hall. Pauline responded to a news bulletin about the lack of housing for refugees and asylum seekers, by setting up homes across North London to provide safe housing. Annie set up regular meals in her church building for homeless people and rough sleepers. Mark started a football club for local lads from an estate in London, most of whom were from extremely difficult backgrounds and not in education or employment. Countless others have weeded gardens for families referred by social services, mentored children in foster care and painted a wall in a refuge. Abroad, Mick and Ruby moved into an inner city slum community in the heart of Manilla for 9 years with their young children.
