Thanks for stopping by!

If you've arrived at this page, hopefully it means you're already reading the book, "The Unmaking of a Part-Time Christian." If not, then let me invite you to join the conversation.

It's too easy in today's world to relegate faith to an add-on, after-market, or part-time status. If a little faith is good, we reason, then we'll just enjoy it at arm's length. We wouldn't want to go overboard. Unfortunately, thinking like that lets what is good keep us away from what is best. The good can be the enemy of the best.

So I'm here to be an encourager. Try following Jesus as a disciple rather than simply one more priority that we fit in where we can. At the very least let's talk about it. Leave your comment, I'd like to know what you think.

Love and blessings - DEREK


First, leave a comment (click on "comments" below). We want to know how you are responding to the book and how God is challenging you to re-evaluate your life of faith. Scroll through the comments and see what others are saying, too. Periodically, I plan to sample the comments and use them in a new blog entry.

Next, you can link to my daily blog, "The Life-Charged Life". New entries are posted six days a week. It's a great way to crawl in to the author's mind.

Then, you can purchase additional copies of "THE UNMAKING OF A PART-TIME CHRISTIAN" or any other Derek Maul title by clicking on the link above right.

There's also a link to my website, DEREKMAUL.COM. You can read a more complete bio, check my schedule, and even begin a conversation about bringing me in to speak for a conference, a retreat, or to visit your church or other organization.

It's a privilege to be in this ongoing conversation with other pilgrims in progress. God's rich blessings be with you all - DEREK

Check out what's happening!

Speaking in Colorado over the weekend!
If you're visiting this space for the first time, you need to know this page is designed to respond to questions and observations about my book, The Unmaking of a Part-Time Christian.

However, I just returned from an amazing speaking trip to Colorado, and there's been so much to share on my regular - daily - blog. So I recommend that you hop on over to either A Life Examined, or The Preacher's Husband, my two more regular blogs.

Regardless, I'm glad you stopped by. Feel free to post questions or comments and I'll get back to you as soon as possible.
