Our deepest longing as human beings is for significance. Make a Difference isn't a luxury--it's at the core of our lives. Here, author and Bible scholar Ken Castor serves as an expert guide into a life of significance. Every day is a surprising exploration into a deep truth about Jesus, a reflection on his impact in the world, an intimate connection- point with him, and a simple challenge to live in his Spirit. Don't just read this book--do this book.

Too often our lives become so cluttered with selfish pursuits that we miss the opportunities right in front of our eyes to help people and change the world around us. In Make a Difference, Ken Castor reminds us every day what is good and what priority we ought to set first: to act justly, to love mercy, and to walk humbly with our God.

My favorite devotionals for forty-plus years have been crisply written hybrids, blending biblical encouragement and challenge. Their authors are word chefs, cooking up sweet swallows for the soul with lingering, satisfying aftertastes. Ken Castor uses this same tasty style with daily doable adventures for a year's worth of nourishment.
