Imagine being on top of your game. From an outsider’s perspective everything is going better than anyone could have expected. All eyes and attention are on you because of the great success you are having as the the successor of a pastor that has built a legacy church who has handed you the baton as the new lead pastor. You’re church is exploding with growth, you’re being invited to tell your story at conferences all over the nation, multisite campuses are being launched, the church has quadrupled in size with attendance over 13,000, you’ve even managed to write you’re first book. Things couldn’t being going better until…you realize you can’t do it anymore.
Limitless is the story of my friend Pastor Ben Dailey’s journey from personal crisis due to the pressures he and others put on himself because of performance based religion, and his discovery of the simple Gospel and a life and ministry full of truth and grace.
In this captivating book, Pastor Ben boldly exposes the impact that performance based religion and lifestyle had on his marriage, his kids, his staff relationships and the power of what a revelation of God’s grace did to correct the path of personal destruction he was on.
“This book is the story of my frustration, my exasperation, my exhaustion . . . and my discovery that Jesus is more than enough to fill my heart with an ocean of His love, forgiveness, and acceptance.” – Pastor Ben Dailey
As I read Limitless I thought to myself, “Every pastor needs to read this book!” As I kept reading I changed my mind. This book is not only for pastors but the hundreds and thousands of churchgoers and church leaders that live their Christianity like a “To Do List” instead of from a place of what Jesus Christ has already done. This is the place where we discover the Gospel is for every believer, not just for those being saved.
There are very few books that I read and read again. Limitless is one of those books and I highly recommend it if you are frustrated, exasperated, and exhausted from not doing enough or not feeling good enough.
