The Time to Act Is Now
The world needs you. It's broken. Your neighbors are in desperate need of a helping hand. If you're not content to cruise through life, it's up to you to DO Something!
Transparent and insightful, Miles McPherson tells it like it is as he shares from his own experience as an ambitious professional football player turned pastor who had to learn things the hard way. With powerful true stories of everyday people making a difference and illustrations from the life of Christ, Miles takes you through the 5 P's of making your life count: preparation, purpose, pain, power, and passion. Then he offers practical suggestions for living out your faith in a way that impacts the lives of others.|Miles McPherson is always doing something. He was the first student from the University of New Haven to be named All-American and be drafted into the NFL. Two years later, after battling a cocaine problem, he stopped using in one day. After the NFL, McPherson founded Miles Ahead Ministries, through which more than 45,000 young people have given their lives to Christ. When he started the Rock Church in San Diego in 2000, more than 3,000 people attended on its first day. The predominantly young, urban congregation has grown to an average of 12,000 with more than 60 volunteer-led community ministries. McPherson has appeared on Larry King Live, Good Morning America, The O'Reilly Factor, and Fox & Friends. He and his wife have three children and live in San Diego, California.

Miles' insights into having a life that counts for Christ through trusting and being obedient to the Holy Spirit's call on one's life and by encouraging us through examples from his own life, lives of people from the Rock Church in San Diego and from others he has met on his walk, are shared in an easy-reading, life-challenging and engrossing format that will, as the first reviewer wrote, light a fire in your soul to get up, get movin', and Do Something for Him (as we are all called to do). As an added bonus you can "meet" these people he writes about online as well, which makes their stories even more persuasive for taking action.
"Each of us can be Jesus' hands and feet on Earth, reaching out to others in real and profound ways." This book also includes many suggestions on how to get started to "making your life count".....Highly recommended!
