Publisher's Summary

Mark Batterson has a strong following among 20- and 30-something Christians who are passionate about their faith but suspicious of the consumer-oriented approach of many mega churches. Primal sheds troublesome cultural baggage while articulating fresh ways to embrace the elements of the faith.

Outstanding!!!

The begins of Christianity were not easy and just as Pastor Mark said we can't forget the first Christians, and we must love G-D with everything because of He is and seek Him and all His creation. Amo Dei!!!

Thought provoking

This was the most convicting out of the Batterson books! I was moved to act and I did on some things he spoke about. He always, yes always makes me think about ways to love God more. I am challenged to read, write and bless others the best I can. I know I can only do it through the incredible power of God. Amen.

Another in depth look at why we exist.

Mark always had a wealth of information to share from his deep curiosity being his primary love language toward God.

Inspired and Anointed

This book brings some super deep concepts and scriptures to the point of understanding for those of us who aren’t scholars. It challenged me to be an authentic Christian.

Pretty good

I like marks books however some of the books repeat the same information from book to book the book about the history of his church and other experiences so I'd like to see one book that doesn't have a repetition on faxes are shared as so far of this and a five and a shirt three of the five out of eight other than that I love the book I love the emphasis and I am I love learning and growing from Disney

Another Batterson victory for God

Mark Batterson has a gift of being able to help the reader focus and meditate on the core of whatever he's discussing. He breaks down the barrier between reading and understanding biblical principles, truly opening God's word to the heart of his readers.
Primal is no exception. Keep up your God ordained work Pastor Batterson!

Must read

I've read several books by Mark Batterson and loved them. He repeats himself ~25% from other books (primarily through examples), but the other 75% of the books are worth it. He raises quite a few deep soul questions that make you think, thank, cry... and hopefully find the heart of God, and it's expression in your life.
