Not Like Me: A Field Guide for Influencing a Diverse World

The New Book

Not Like Me: a Field Guide for Influencing a Diverse World coming July 2010!

Zondervan will be publishing a revised, re-titled, and updated version of Peppermint-Filled Pinatas

Not Like Me: A Field Guide for Influencing a Diverse World helps people of faith effectively love, serve, and reach people overlooked by the church.

One of the new features includes a brief article after each chapter with practical ways to apply the principles presented in that chapter.  Some of the articles you contributed have been included at the end of each chapter.

The contributors include:

Ed Stetzer, Amena Brown, Margaret Feinberg, Kevin Harney, Dr. Gerardo Marti, Kim Martinez, Lon Wong, Mark DeYmaz, Princess Zulu, Dan Kimball, and Erwin McManus (foreword).

The Online Event

On July 20th we are having a 3 hour online release party from 11am-2pm (PST) featuring interviews from innovative leaders such as Erwin McManus, Alan and Debra Hirsch, among others.

We will be giving away free resources from our guests including Untamed by Alan and Debra Hirsch plus free copies of Not Like Me!


The New Website (Coming soon!) will include insights and articles with practical ways to love, serve, and influence those with whom we might differ or disagree.  To submit an 300-700 word article based on one of the chapters in Not Like Me, email Belinda at will also include short films, small group materials, sermon transcripts, assessments, and other resources for a sermon series and your small groups.

    This is a hugely really exciting development, Eric. It’s wonderful to see how PFP has moved on from the original project will continue to have an impact – far and beyond what you may have originally imaged. The new version looks excellent

    Delighted for you, man…and glad you are exploring such an important and vital area for the future of all of us, as we live in an increasingly diverse world.

    I’d be happy to help in any small way I can, and will email Belinda to say so.

    Grace & peace

      Hey Johnny! Thank you for the encouraging words and your willingness to help. I am excited you want to be a part of this.

      I was just talking about you to a friend in Preston yesterday. I will keep you posted on UK possibilities in the near future. Hope to see you soon.

    Hope it was a positive conversation! :-))

    Of course it was positive, Johnny! We were talking about an Origins service day in London and other missional leaders in the UK. 🙂
