"As a guy who pours through a lot of printed material on a daily basis, I'd like to think I know when something presses into new territory. 'Immersion' does that with its content and format. It occurs to me that in 'Immersion' Mark has captured a path to God's best. What could be more helpful."
--Preston Scott Fox News Channel WFLA
"Immersion spoke specifically to me and gave me encouragement to move forward with a new project that we are launching called TRIFECTA. I plan to distribute Immersion to as many people as possible." --Terry Davis CEO of Tri California
From the Author
Introduction I would like to thank you for taking the time to read Immersion. It is my prayer that this book will be a blessing and an encouragement to you in your journey as a fellow follower of Christ. I also pray that it will assist you in experiencing the rich and satisfying life Jesus came to give His followers, and that, in the process of reading this book, you will make The Great Commandment the primary grid through which you make all your life decisions. I have done my best to directly connect the ideas in this book to scriptural passages. Footnotes and textual citations are included on the same page for easy reference and further contextual study. The book has been organized into seven parts. Part one sets the stage for the five central sections. A seventh and final section is intended as a "putting it all together" framing piece. I have also written a group study which is located at the end of each section, with the hope that you will go through this book in community. You can do the studies alone, but everything is better in community. In the back of the book there is a 40-day life coaching experience, designed to help you experience a richer and more satisfying life. There are also free resources for your church and small group Bible studies available at: immersion4groups.com The greatest blessing to me would be that the body of Christ would be encouraged, equipped, and edified as people join together in their homes for elevated conversations. These group studies are intended to facilitate just such conversations. In His Grip,Mark
