McKenzie's Companion and Who is McKenzie? Package - two books in one (available Spring 2012)

Although we were unaware of it, without Jesus Christ as our Lord and Saviour, we all lived our lives upside down and back to front.

The McKenzie Books Package
Both of the McKenzie books now come as one book with each to be read separately from the front to the middle. That means that the cover of McKenzie’s Companion, will become the ‘back cover’ upside down of Who is McKenzie?

My reasoning is that I want the two books to have their own identity. The reader should know that these are two separate books that can be read on their own or together. In fact Who is McKenzie? will still be available as a stand alone, separate book to give to non-Christian friends and family members.

However, the new two books together come with clear introductions along with a suggested way to read/use them at the beginning of each book.
The general purpose of each book is to take the reader on a journey into Christ. Who is McKenzie? is an introduction to the character of McKenzie that will prepare the reader for McKenzie novels to follow. My hope is that, ultimately, it will lead non-Christians to Christ.

McKenzie’s Companion is a collection of short, easy to read devotionals that can be read by Christians for personal edification or by curious non-Christians as an exploration of selected scriptures from the bible. Read together, the reader will discover the scriptural context of McKenzie’s scenarios and, hopefully, through that, will see how Jesus Christ can be relevant, if not essential, in their own lives.

Group or Individual Study
For group or individual study I have included three pertinent questions that relate to both correlating McKenzie chapters from each book. The chapters of both McKenzie books relate to each other; chapter one lines up with chapter one, chapter two with chapter two….and so on, in each book.
I have placed the three questions on a fresh page after each chapter of McKenzie’s Companion leaving about one-third of the page blank under each question for the answers. In this way, the book (containing both McKenzie books) will also become the workbook for group or individual study. There are some blank pages around the middle of the book for personal notes.
With fifty chapters, at one per week, the ‘course’ will take a year to complete (allowing for two weeks off).

I am hopeful that some readers will progress onto the full online *GlobalTFL course. Currently we are praying that the Lord will raise up 50 Mentors who will oversee 1,000 online GlobalTFL students. Please add your prayers to ours.
