The second book in the First Steps of Discipleship series tackles the fundamental, day-to-day difficulties experienced by every Christian, and looks at the question War: Why Did Life Just Get Harder?

If you want a book about the real and daily struggles of following Christ which pulls no punches, dodges no controversy, fudges no issue and gives it to you straight, then here it is.

Steve Timmis, Executive Director of the Acts 29 Network

Over the years, I've come to appreciate Mez not just as excellent philosopher and pastor, but as a practitioner. I'm excited about the role this book will play in discipling the very people this book was written for.

John Onwuchekwa, Lead Pastor, Cornerstone Church, Atlanta, Georgia

Too many believe that Jesus is supposed to take away all of their problems. This book will help me explain to them that the spiritual life is war. Brian and Mez keep it real and speak truth. I love these guys.

Joel Kurtz , Pastor, The Garden, Baltimore, Maryland

Mez is one of us and he writes like one of us. This shows as he communicates biblical truths in a way that hits the heart and mind whilst giving a realistic picture of the joy and struggles faced by Christians.

Ian Williamson , Pastor, New Life Church, Middlesbrough
