Item description for Secrets of a Faith Well Lived: Intimate Conversations with Modern-Day Disciples by Chris Coppernoll...

This captivating book gets into the hearts and lives of some of today's pacesetters in the Christian faith. Examine the lives of such people as Max Lucado, Frank Peretti, and Shelia Walsh through candid conversations between Coppernoll and these modern-day heroes of the faith.

Publishers Description
As you admire from afar the Christian leaders of our time, do you ever wonder what it would be like to live their lives, to think their thoughts, to believe their faith?
This fascinating book by Christ Coppernoll brings their opened hearts to the printed page. Through the close up lens of personal interviews with best-selling authors Max Lucado, Frank Peretti, Sheila Walsh, Scotty Smith, Tony Campolo, Patsy Clairmont, and more, you will glimpse the intimate secrets of faith that have shaped these influential men and women. In the pages of this book, you are invited to share in candid conversations with modern-day disciples and learn firsthand about their struggles, their families, their mission, their dreams, and their hearts.

From Publishers Weekly
Max Lucado and Brennan Manning are recovering alcoholics. Tony Campolo never rests on the Sabbath. Sheila Walsh has been hospitalized for clinical depression, and Patsy Clairmont is a former agoraphobe. These are some of the startling revelations that adorn Coppernoll's uneven collection of first-person narratives by 14 famous Christian authors who describe their personal lives, faith journeys and individual shortcomings. For example, Larry Crabb a psychologist who has written more than a dozen books on marriage and the family admits that he still fights with his wife of 33 years and doesn't know how to relate to his adult children. Such candid confessions of personal failings are refreshing, but contrast sharply with Coppernoll's overall tone of celebrity worship. As the title suggests, Coppernoll upholds these writers as "godly" people who have important secrets to impart about spirituality. The authors' personal testimonies are woven thematically into chapters that promise to unlock the "secrets" of faith. These secrets turn out to be little more than time-honored clich s: into every life a little rain will fall, church is a home for every heart, etc. Coppernoll obviously asked his subjects engaging, provocative interview questions, since their personal statements are so compelling and forthcoming. But his editorial framework is hackneyed, and the book's adulatory tone undermines the spiritual purpose of having famous Christian authors describe their many flaws.

Secrets of a Faith Well Lived  Sep 18, 2001
LOOK AT MODERN DAY DISCIPLES COMING IN JULY - "Secrets of a Faith Well Lived: Intimate Conversations with Modern Day Disciples" by Christopher Coppernoll will be available nationwide July 17, 2001.

Published by Howard Publishing, "Secrets" features candid reflections on living the Christian faith excerpted from exclusive interviews with some of the most influential Christian authors of our time including Max Lucado, Larry Crabb, Sheila Walsh, Frank Peretti, Brennan Manning Tony Campolo, Patsy Clairmont, Henry Blackaby, Karyn Henley, Barbara Johnson, Grant Jeffrey, Chonda Pierce, Scotty Smith, and Steve Brown.

In "Secrets of a Faith Well Lived" the authors who have deeply inspired the evangelical world over the years through their popular, best-selling books reveal the substance of what it is that makes them tick. They each intimately share stories about their backgrounds, how they found their unique callings, and how each lives out their faith. Readers will better understand why the authors think, write, and believe as they do through personal stories told in the authors own words.

"Secrets of a Faith Well Lived" is the second book from Soul2Soul Ministries focusing on the intimate faith of well known Christians. In 1998 Word Publishing released "Soul2Soul: Top Christian Music Artists Share An Intimate Look at Their Lives, Their Music, & Their Faith."

Intimate, thought provoking and encouraging.  Aug 28, 2001
I read parts of this book with my mouth hanging open. I don't know how the author does it, but he pulls gut-wrenching revelations and ground-breaking transparency from some of the best-loved Christian authors and speakers. I was moved and encouraged by what I read. As I read about the struggles and shortcomings of these well-known folks, I felt a lot less alone in my own struggles and shortcomings. Larry Crabb's honest comments about crises in faith and relationships were particularly moving (I read his sections twice). And in the process, I was filled with incredible gratitude toward the merciful God whose love for us never wavers despite our doubts, wounds and mistakes. As the children's Sunday school chorus says, we are weak indeed, but He is strong. Coppernoll and the folks he interviewed broke new ground with the level of vulnerability in these pages. I found honesty reflected there, and plenty of hope as well. As far as the title, I think it's really effective--after all, we're all looking for secrets that can help us in our lives and faith. However, it does beg the question: Can any of us really claim a faith well-lived? Or are we all, as the stories within suggest, veteran stumblers who are loved fiercely by a God who embraces, empowers and enlists us in His service, skinned knees and all? If you're like me, somewhere between the covers of this book you'll catch glimpses of your own soul. You'll find company and kinship, but you'll also find wisdom and guidance. It's a powerful combination. Kudos to Coppernoll and the men and women whose hearts and stories are reflected in the pages of this book.
