Out of the Shadows is now Available

"I can't say enough good things about this book. It's one of the most needed messages and would most definitely be a great group reading or book club selection!"
A Language of Healing for a Polarized Nation by Wayne Jacobsen
"A very needed perspective in our world today!

I love how the conversation moves from one person and viewpoint on to the next. Three seemingly very different people come together to offer symbiotic thoughts to the obvious division all around us.

“There is no one that God does not love with all that he is. His love reaches beyond every sin and failure, hoping that at some moment they will come to know just how loved they are.”
Wayne Jacobsen, He Loves Me! The Relationship God Has Always Wanted with You

“We make a fatal mistake when we try to force Scripture to offer redemption to those who want to go to heaven but who don't want a relationship with the living God. By trying to offer some minimal standard of conduct that will allow them to qualify for salvation while continuing to to pursue their own agendas, we distort the gospel and destroy its power, and we concoct legalistic games to give them a false sense of security.”
Wayne Jacobsen, He Loves Me!: Learning to Live in the Father's Affection

“The church thrives where people are focused on Jesus, not where they are focused on church.”
Wayne Jacobsen, So You Don't Want to Go to Church Anymore: An Unexpected Journey
