"Be Transformed - New Life Awaits gets to the heart of what is most missing in church and what most contributes to powerless Christianity. Most of us have heard about having a "new heart," but how many seem to actually have one? Be Transformed - The Workbook Edition carries the faithful follower along a path and process that can lead to lasting change and a new heart. Our mission is growing male leaders whose hearts are like the heart of Christ."
"The Be Transformed message belongs at the core of all discipleship resources. If we miss the heart -- and the price that must be paid to get a new one -- we will miss most of the power and blessing of contagious faith. We desire to build leaders who are effective and spiritually contagious -- Be Transformed is a core resource for Christians who desire all that the Bible and our Lord promise."
