For the past two years, Craig Groeschel and his church have hosted a national multi-church campaign called One Prayer, a month-long concerted focus on unifying the many different, diverse churches participating by praying together and serving their local communities. This year´s One Prayer campaign attracted over 1,900 participant churches, which included over 2,000 pastors and over one million church members. Many of these churches are high-profile evangelical churches with pastors who are also successful authors and speakers. The campaign continues to attract interest from more and more churches and ministries. The 2010 campaign, scheduled for June once again, is expected to grow by 50%. This compilation book features chapters by 17 of the best and brightest participant pastors, including Andy Stanley, Francis Chan, Jentezen Franklin, Perry Noble, Steven Furtick, and others. 1.

This isn´t a coming out story. Nor is it the tale of a lonely heart-seeking companionship. This is about how I learned to fight. My name is Nathaniel Courtney, and I m a survivor. I didn´t let the cruelty of others wear me down, and I´ve weathered the more subtle hardships of the heart. Love is a Trojan horse, slipping past your guard and leaving you ransacked and vulnerable. I emerged from that war not unscathed but as a new man. The only mistake I ever made was letting the right guy get away. Now I´ve got one more chance. This is the final battle, because if I fail now...I won´t. You´ll see. Just listen to my story, Kelly Phillips, and when I´m done, please don t walk away. Take this weary soldier into your arms so we can find peace together.

Never stop running. No matter how often life trips you up or how many times your enemies knock you down, just get up and keep on moving until you find where you belong. Kelly Phillips has been out and proud since he was a young teenager, and thanks to the gay youth group he frequents, he´s never been short on friends or lovers. But when you have almost everything, it´s hard not to focus on what´s just out of reach: a best friend who would be Mr. Right if he wasn´t already Mr. Straight. Or that handsome athlete at school who would be easier to wrangle if not for his angel wings. And then there´s the guy who might be a perfect fit, maybe even a soul mate...if only he wasn´t convinced he didn´t need anyone. Kelly has always been good at running. Now he must learn to chase, which will test not only his endurance but the durability of his heart as well. Something Like Lightning is a new beginning in the Something Like... saga, shifting the focus to a different set of characters while also revisiting a familiar face or two.
