Becoming An Outwardly Focused Christian
I Will by Thom S. Rainer is a book with a mission to create more outwardly focused Christians and as a result build a church that reaches out instead of being selfish in their focus. It is a short but powerful book that gets us focused on others rather than self.

I found this book especially challenging as I have been in church for a long time and I have been at times quite internally focused. I encourages us to reach out and embrace people who we may not normally associate with to build life changing relationships.

The narration was quite good as it seemed to fit with the tone of the book and wasn't distracting at all, so I could concentrate on content.

This is a book that all Christians could do with reading as we can all become church and other Christian focused at times and not really reach out to people.

A great resource
For the thousands of passive, nominal church-goers in America, I Will by Thom Rainer is a timely manifesto of initiative; a passionate call for pew-sitters to roll up their sleeves and be the change they want to see in their church. Continuing in the same vein as his 2013 book, I Am a Church Member, Rainer offers a practical resource for church leaders, intended to help them mobilize their greatest assets: the people they lead.

I had trouble approaching this short book and struggled through the first quarter or so. I think my trouble was understand exactly who this book was written for. The story that opens the book and sets the stage, fictional or not, seemed contrived to me. However, after I reached the second of nine “traits of the outwardly focused Christian,” I was hooked in by Rainer’s simple, direct writing style. Once again, this is a call to action.

Each chapter focuses on one of the nine traits, and each chapter title begins with “I Will…” The chapters entitled “I Will Grow Together With Others” (focused on small group involvement) and “I Will Give Generously” (focused on giving of resources) stood out to me as particularly good. However, the chapter entitled “I Will Avoid the Traps of Churchianity” takes the cake as the most potentially helpful, because it offers true insight into the challenges of devoting your life to serving in the church. Every church goer should read this chapter if not this entire book.

This book would be great to hand out to an entire congregation or at least to key volunteer leaders in order to equip them with common talking points. If even a portion of the people in a particular church would grasp on to the principles in this book, that church would be unleashed for tremendous impact. This is a great resource.

The narration of the audiobook version is handled very well by George W. Sarris.
