Ask a crowd of Christians whether they believe in Jesus as Lord and Savior, and all hands will go up. Ask the same crowd whether they live like Jesus, and most of those same hands will come down. Why is this? Why is it so hard to bridge the gap between belief and real life?Respected author, professor, and psychologist Gary W. Moon thinks it has to do with our hyper-intellectual but non-experiential method of living the Christian life. In this winsome book Moon provides a thirty-day apprenticeship with Jesus, whereby readers will actively practice being with Jesus day in and day out. Each day's reading uses compelling stories and scripture to illustrate a point and closes with a suggested apprenticeship activity.

G. L. Moon is a native Texan, with a love of story-telling. Inspired by great authors of the past, he set out to gain as much world experience as possible. A former United States Marine, Insurance Agent, Salesman, Entrepreneur, Truck driver, Professional Singer, he has lived a full life in preparation for his story telling.

Dallas Willard was a professor at the University of Southern California's School of Philosophy until his death in 2013. His groundbreaking books The Divine Conspiracy , The Great Omission , Knowing Christ Today , Hearing God , and The Spirit of the Disciplines forever changed the way thousands of Christians experience their faith.
