Not Like Me Free Chapters Plus…

With the Walls series about to begin in 20+ churches in Austin, I wanted to provide some free chapters and other resources for those using Not Like Me in your groups. Feel free to send those in your group to this page for more details on the book and for these free chapters.

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. We are called to move past the barriers that stand between us and those who may be different from us morally, spiritually, ethnically, or socio-economically. Published by Zondervan, Not Like Me is a revised, re-titled, and updated version of Peppermint-Filled Pinatas.

Not Like Me includes a brief article after each chapter with practical ways to apply the principles presented in that 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).
