Summary

“Go therefore and make disciples of all nations.”  
 
Right before ascending into heaven, Jesus stood on a mountain and delivered the Great Commission, instructing all His followers to make disciples of all nations. Promising He would always be with us, He drifted up into the clouds. Two thousand years later, our objective remains and we steadfastly—  
 
Wait, what? Make disciples of all nations? How do you do that?  
 
Jesus’ early followers knew precisely what to do. They knew because the Messiah had spent the three years prior turning them into disciples. They followed His example and “turned the world upside down” (Acts 17:6), and that example is left for us as well.  
 
In Go Make Disciples, bestselling author Brad Francis takes us through the five aspects of discipleship that Jesus regularly practiced: example, evaluation, education, equipping and experience. Discover how Jesus took a dozen ordinary, uneducated men and turned them into Christ followers who boldly reached their world with the Gospel. After seeing how Jesus made disciples, Brad also offers ideas about how we can adapt His methods for our modern world.  
 
Whether you’ve personally been involved in discipling hundreds, or whether you’ve never known how to even take the first step toward making disciples, Go Make Disciples provides a strong biblical foundation for following Jesus’ commands. If the Great Commission applies to you, so does this book!

    When Gia comes face to face with a past she didn't know she had, will she learn to trust in a future she can’t control? 
    MEET GEORGIA GUSTAFSON 
    Gia Gustafson is officially coming of age... but now what? She feels like she's standing still, while everything—and everyone—around her is moving at lightning speed.  Her best friend, Ricky Zander, is acting like a stranger, her grandparents have grown old almost overnight, and her sisters have all found their happily-ever-afters. 
    Once again, she’s the odd Gustafson Girl out. 
    Then there's Angela Clinton, the girl who plowed her el Camino into the side of Paul and Simone Gustafson's car when Gia was only four. After spending most of her adult life in jail, Angela is finally coming home, and she wants to make amends with the four sisters she made orphans so many years ago. 
    As if life wasn't confusing enough, the gorgeous new guy at work is doing his best to sweep Gia off her feet, and Ricky is having none of it. 
    So when a stranger she’d recognize anywhere shows up unannounced on her doorstep, Gia isn’t so sure she’s ready to grow up after all. 
    MEET THE GUSTAFSON GIRLS  
    When Paul and Simone Gustafson are killed by a drunk driver, the lives of their daughters change irrevocably. Although raised by loving grandparents, it's the G-FOURce--the Gustafson Four Sisters Club--that binds them together when their differences would tear them apart. All grown up now, Juliette has become the quintessential doormat, Renata, the self-appointed matriarchal figure. Phoebe is, at least according to Renata, borderline narcissistic, and Gia is on the verge of a major identity crisis.  
    And now, Angela Clinton, the senior class darling who drove her cherry black 1970 el Camino into the side of their parents' car on the night of Juliette's high school graduation, is back in town and looking for restoration. Will the G-FOURce be strong enough to hold the sisters together as they step into the eye of the storm that's been brewing for the last sixteen years? Will they finally be able to let go of the past and embrace the future, no matter what it holds? 
    Note: The Gustafson Girls series is Women's Fiction/Christian Romance written from a Christian world view.

    The mantra and kirtan (call-and-response devotional chants) of yoga practice sometimes get short shrift in the West because they aren’t well understood. These chants are an integral part of most every Eastern spiritual practice because they are designed to provide access into the psyche while their underlying mythology helps us understand how our psychology affects daily life. Sacred Sound shares the myths behind the mantras, illuminating their meaning and putting their power and practicality within reach of every practitioner. Each mantra and kirtan includes the Sanskrit, the transliteration, and the translation. Clear retellings of the pertinent myths highlight modern-day applications so that readers discover their own personal connection to the practice. Alanna Kaivalya has refined her teaching over a decade with tens of thousands of diverse audience members. Her unique and popular approach to human connection and self-knowledge turns a time-tested tradition into a versatile and potent tool.
