The Amazon Kindle version should be available by tomorrow (Friday), and the paperback version will be available on Amazon sometime next week. At this point, the book will only be available through Amazon distribution channels.
Here’s the description of the book:
Sonshift is a book about a transformation that takes place when one encounters God as an outrageously loving Father. It’s about a personal journey of discovery that’s not just the author’s but one that’s revolutionizing many sons and daughters in the body of Christ today. This journey changes everything—how we see God and our relationship with Him, how we relate to our family and friends, how we read the Bible, and even the foundations of what we think it means to BE and ACT LIKE a Christian. It’s about a real life lived in the real world, but one that is never lived apart from the Father’s embrace. It’s what you always hoped the Christian life would be!
The book is mainly about my personal journey into the Father’s heart and how that journey has dramatically turned my whole Christian worldview upside-down. I was also blessed to have my friend, Mark Hendrickson, do the Foreword for me.
I elaborate on this shift in ten chapters that are titled as follows:
- What is Sonshift?
- Father Shift
- Disciple Shift
- Theology Shift
- Love Shift
- Identity Shift
- Grace Shift
- Faith Shift
- Heaven Shift
- Relation Shift
If you’ve been a reader of my blog for awhile you’ll recognize some of the content, but much of it is new material, and having it all together in a systematic flow puts it in a clearer context. I will say this about the book. If you want to get inside my head and know where I’m coming from on the things I share on this blog, this book pretty much explains it! 🙂
I’ve also had some of my other ministry friends give their feedback after reading the book. These excerpts are copied straight from the back cover of the paperback version:
“Get ready for everything to change, everything to shift, everything in YOU to move toward a brand new YOU.” – Bishop Randy Dean, author and pastor
“I honestly believe Sonshift should be required reading for all Christians. This understanding is that important.” – John Cummuta, best-selling author on personal finance/small business
“As I read Mel’s words, my heart sings, “I am not alone in this journey.” His words are simple yet profound, accurate, honest and applicable.” – Rod Marquette, pastor
“Mel has managed to engage the reader in the discovery of just who our Heavenly Father is and what His character and nature are truly like.” – Dan Notley, DTN Ministries
There will be special introductory pricing for both the Kindle and paperback versions that you should be aware of if you are interested in purchasing the book. The Kindle version will start out at $2.99 US until the paperback comes out, then it will go to $3.49 US. The initial price on the paperback is $8.99 US, but I also enrolled it in Amazon’s Matchbook program, so if you buy the paperback first you can get the Kindle version for $0.99. I’m not sure how long this initial offer will last but it will at least be a week or two. I will keep you posted on that.
I’m heading out of town today, so more to come next week. I pray you are blessed by the book. I would also appreciate your feedback and leave a review on the Amazon site. Blessings.
