To live dead is to live life wholly for Jesus. To die to the self is to know God will do a greater work through you and to announce the life of God among those who are unreached. This journal, in 30-day meditations, examines character-based mission among those unengaged by the Gospel. Each day includes an informed way to pray for an unreached people in East Africa and a ch ...more

“The Live Dead challenge has a specific goal—the raising up of missionaries who will join teams planting churches among unreached peoples. In order to reach these people with the gospel of Jesus Christ, we are going to have to live a certain way. We must live dead [...] The Live Dead challenge is an invitation to make a life. Make a life that counts for eternity. Under the guidance and power of the Holy Spirit, attempt the impossible and for the glory of Christ live and die among unreached peopl ...more

The most amazing journal that had a great impact on my prayer life. It is filled with insightful stories written by missionaries followed by a challenge and a related writing prompt for a journal entry. Each day includes a description of an unreached people group to pray for. Aside from the thought-provoking entries, this journal is filled with beautiful art that makes the journal feel so much more personal and even more inspiring.

What a powerful devotional to prepare hearts for traversing to unreached people groups. In this novel, 30 or so guest authors depict how God has worked in their lives to get them to minister to unreached people groups and the challenges they face. Each day has an excerpt on a specific unreached group with specific prayer requests.

Each chapter is written by a different missionary (some of whom we know personally!) and, through stories and examples, challenges my perceptions about God, his call, his expectations, and how he defines success in ministering to unreached people. This book will change you.

Good devotional to help understand missions and commitment to Christ and His work. Written by AG workers in East Africa, this journal helps understand the challenges, hard work, and rewards of such a life.

This was my first devotional journal. I enjoyed it. Each day was distinct and important. I really liked the way each author connected their lives to their prompt and gave plenty of examples. The prompts were thoughtful and challenging. It wasn’t without fault and I think one of the big ones was that it suffered from ethnocentrism. The book could have been kinder to the cultures of study. At one point, it called a group of people “savages”, which I really didn’t appreciate. It is important to cel ...more

This is the original Live-Dead journal and is a masterful presentation of a biblical worldview on missionary living. The short essays are packed with personal illustrations of the key areas that comprise the Live-Dead philosophy for life and ministry.

Each chapter contains a single reflection question with space for you to write your thoughts. There is also one unreached people group featured for prayer with the chapter. It is a gripping journey into what it means to abandon ourselves to Christ f

This books is incredible. It's written by 30 missionaries (mostly from Africa and the Middle East), sharing powerful stories and lessons learned through their devoted walk with the Messiah. It's divided into 30 small chapters that are quick to read, and will leave you with much to ponder and put into action for the rest of the day. It will cause your heart to thirst for more of God, and inspire you to "die to self" so that He can be glorified in your life. ...more

There are many gems in this book, entries that I will ear mark and read again when I need to be challenged or encouraged. It is even more special to me that I know a few of the individuals who contributed to this book, and their lives are even more inspirational than their writings. Anyone can write about living dead, but it is much more difficult to actually live there day in, day out. They are by no means perfect, but I am incredibly blessed to have had my life touched by theirs.

Recommends it for: Dick Brogden, author
Recommended to Susan by: author
Very challenging book written by various missionaries among unreached peoples in East Africa. This journal is part of a challenge, described in the introduction, of taking 30 days to read the journal and have 2 hrs and 24 minutes with God each day of those 30 days. Guidelines for how to use your time are given, and it's not about legalism of time or what you do, but learning to abide in Jesus and give him extravagent worship. Life-changing for me. ...more

I recommend this book to anyone. This book helped me rethink how I spend my time in the day, and draw so much closer to the Lord. It is a hard challenge, but the hard things are usually what pushes us harder toward growth.

Very inspirational. The missionaries who have written the 30-day challenges have had to lay down their lives for the gospel and serve in dangerous places. An amazing prayer guide for reaching the "unreached". I feel honored to have met two of the missionaries in this book. ...more

Every follower of Jesus should take the 30 Day Live Dead Challenge. I think the subtitle ought to be, "A 30 Day Plan to Wreck Your Life!"

This is a 30 day devotional aimed at reaching unreached people groups. Each day features a challenge in your personal life and some info on an unreached group. Very potent.
