Eight days till take-off. The ebook releases next Friday, the 1st, and my publisher, Tyndale House, continues to make pitches in the media hoping to get some bites and some articles written about the book. I’ll keep you updated as some of that plays out. For now, below two more folks, Dr. Michael Youssef and David Zahl, weigh in on 40 Days without Food.
“Russ has done an excellent job in opening a window into his inner life to reveal to us the human side of faith.”
- Dr. Michael Youssef, founding rector at The Church of the Apostles in Atlanta, Georgia
“In 40 Days without Food Russ courageously tells the truth about himself with unfailing insight, negotiating the treacherous internal terrain of self-doubt and self-pity, deftly avoiding the pious pitfalls that normally plague such accounts. He fearlessly allows us to witness his fearfulness, not to mention God’s love for him in the midst of it. For anyone wrestling with questions of purpose and value—of what it means to be human—this book will be a source of immense wisdom and comfort. I can think of no better guide to connect all of us weary travelers with ‘the heart of the matter.’”
