About the Author
Roger Shenk enjoys a daily relationship with Jesus Christ and is the Lead Pastor at Bahia Vista Church in Sarasota, Florida. He experienced a spiritual awakening at age 25 and has since devoted his life to helping others experience that same joy and freedom. His candidness and relatability is both unique and refreshing. Roger is an active musician who performs regularly with his identical twin, Rodney, in worship teams as well as the occasional old-school bluegrass concert. He has a Master of Arts in Spiritual Formation from George Fox Evangelical Seminary and is a certified Spiritual Director. He married his high school sweetheart, Wendy, at the ripe old age of nineteen. His free time is joyfully occupied by their beautiful family of four children and one adorable grandson.

Of particular interest is the thought-provoking question: "What would you NOT be willing to trade for eternal life?"
Intended for both believers and non-believers, the book can be read in an hour or so and feels more like a caring challenge from Shenk while visiting over coffee than what you'd typically find of other books on the topic.
