I'm looking forward to my book release party for "This Is My Body: Ekklesia as God Intended" this Friday night at Fuller Seminary.

After over 3 years working on this book it's finally out and I'm very happy share it with everyone.

So far the reader response has been overwhelming and humbling. I'm so blessed that so many people have been challenged and inspired by what I've written.

If you've not done so yet, be sure to download the entire ebook version for free at this link:

There are download options for Kindle, Nook, iPad, Sony E-reader and other ebook devices at the link provided.

If you read the book, please let me know what you think by either blogging your review and sharing the link, or sending my your review directly.

We've also set up a special book blog where you can read all the latest reviews, updates and more at

Special thanks must go out to Jon Zens for writing the foreword to the book and for spending several hours on the phone and over email with me in helping me to edit and craft the book.

I must also thank Jon Philpott for setting up the ebook formattting (for free) and also for setting up and hosting the ebook download page on his own personal domain (again, for free)!

Big huge thanks to my mother in law, Ellen Engebrecht for encouraging me to finish the book at a time when I had made up my mind not to finish it, and also to Brent Kollmansberger for reminding me that my perspective in the book was unique and therefore worth sharing with others.

Of course, I cannot forget my wonderful wife, Wendy, to whom the book is dedicated. She has always been my biggest fan, my greatest supporter and the voice of reason and wisdom for me in times of uncertainty. I'm also especially grateful to her for planning this book release party and putting together a great menu of treats for everyone to enjoy.

In the next few months I've got a few radio interviews set up to promote the book, and I'm praying that God would open more doors to speak and share with others about the book.

My ultimate goal is to give away a million copies of the ebook version. So far we're almost at 500 copies after just about 2 weeks, so maybe we'll hit that mark by the time I finish my next book!

Thanks also to all of you who read my blog and post enouraging comments here. It really means a lot to me to know that someone is out there reading this and being inspired and challenged to "be the Church".

Would love to come to your part..but the train fare from Leicester UK would prohibit such a trip! Have now finished the book and it is very good indeed. If I may say, Keith, you have aknack of simplifying and writing in a brief, easy to read style, that gets a lot of information across easily and quickly. Ideal for those of us who have limited reading time...! The content is 5* and has inspired me still further on my journey. God bless you!

I would also like to come, but I'm not sure whether it's Fuller in Pasadena or Irvine. Neither is answering the phone!
