Going Deep Becoming A Person of Influence
By Gordon MacDonald

Using fictional characters, along with a fictional church, author Gordon MacDonald tells the very real story of how to grow a deeper relationship with God and become a person of influence.

The first half of this very lengthy book is a detailed account of how Gordon, his wife Gail and their fictional church developed the program used to teach Christians how to go deeper with God. In all honesty, it dragged a little. I thought some of it was unnecessary information–for a fictionalized novel. It would have been great in a self-help type of educational book, but not for a novel.

The rest of the book however looked at the 40 weeks it took his characters to actually go deeper.

It wasn’t a bad read. In fact, there were several times I actually took notes and thought, “I’m going to try this, myself.” However, again in full honesty, I must admit that I wish Mr. MacDonald had chosen one style or another–fiction or self-help–and had not tried to combine the two.

"I'd like to think of myself as a blended mix of Southern charm and humor. What I really am is a hot mess of sin and sass. Jesus loves me either way."
