The Greatest Story Ever Told

By John C. Maxwell

  • Hardback
  • £12.99

A high quality companion journal for John Maxwell fans to write their own stories.

In 1976, John Maxwell received a gift from his assistant at that time, Eileen. He unwrapped it to find a book titled: The Greatest Story Ever Told. He was eager to read it, but when he opened it, the pages were blank. Inside was a note from Eileen that said, "John, your life is before you. Fill these pages with kind acts, good thoughts and matters of your heart. Write a great story with your life." For the first time it made him think about how he was the author of his life, and could fill every "page" with whatever he wanted. It made him want to be significant. It inspired him to do whatever he could to make his life matter.

Today Maxwell is recognized as the #1 authority on leadership, his books have sold 26 million copies in 50 languages, and his companies have trained 5 million people to be leaders in 180 countries. He wants to give the gift that had such impact on him thirty years ago to others.

And so the pages of THE GREATEST STORY EVER TOLD are empty, their lines waiting to be filled with the stories of a new generation.

No Limits

John C. Maxwell
Authors:
John C. Maxwell

We often treat the word capacity as if it were a natural law of limitation. Unfortunately, most of us are much more comfortable defining what we perceive is off limits rather than what's possible. Could it be that many people have allowed what they perceive as capacity to define them? Have they allowed their perception to limit their attitudes about their potential? In his newest book, John Maxwell identifies 17 core capacities. Some of these are abilities we all already possess, such as energy, creativity and leadership. Others are aspects of our lives controlled by our choices, like our attitudes, character, and intentionality. Maxwell examines each of these 17 capacities, and provides clear and actionable advice on how you can increase your potential in each. He will guide you on how to identify, grow, and apply your critical capacities to your daily life. Once you've blown the "cap" off your capacities, you'll find yourself more successful--and fulfilled--in your daily life.

Bill Griffin

Uniquely the book will be published with 99 different covers, a selection of which can be seen here. Your cover will therefore be a surprise and we really hope that you like the one that you receive.Just over 1,000 days ago, Bill Griffin launched Crowdwish, a website and app with a single proposition - it simply asked people what three things they thought they wanted most. Wishes poured in from all over the world, with the site promising to take some form of meaningful action for the most up-voted wish every twenty-four hours. Wishes that have gained national press attention range from the assisting of a woman who wanted to find a half-decent boyfriend ('just not a dick basically'), duping Katie Hopkins into signing a gagging order and attaching a faux marble plinth to the offices of the Daily Mail.The Wish reviews 99 of the site's most popular wishes, and asks: what are the things we really want, how can we get closer to them and how much happier would we be if they were to come true? The result is a snapshot of the hopes, dreams and desires that unite us all, part reflection on a fascinating social experiment, part humorous rumination on the nature of happiness and part instruction manual for life.The Wish is funny, upbeat and genuinely helpful - each reader is invited to pick one wish from the book that resonates most with them, and email the author for help in making it happen.

Stuff That Sucks

Ben Sedley
Authors:
Ben Sedley

Each of us has thoughts that are painful at times; sometimes the pain is sadness, sometimes worry or anger or shame or grief or some feeling that you don't even have words for. If you are a young person struggling with your emotions, you do not want to be told that 'everyone feels like that' or that 'you will grow out of it'. You want to feel that your emotions are valid and that the person offering help truly understands how painful life can feel at times. With a strong emphasis on validation and compassion, Stuff That Sucks encourages you to accept your emotions rather than struggling against them. It also shows how to reconnect with what is really important to you, giving you the tools to help clarify your personal values and take steps towards living a life where those values can guide you in your day-to-day behaviour.

Home Run

Kevin Myers, John C. Maxwell
Authors:
Kevin Myers, John C. Maxwell

HOME RUN is the story of Kevin Myers, a Christian leader who found himself hitting walls in his personal and professional life as the high expectations he had for a church plant spiraled into a train wreck for five years. Through a season of brokenness, the discovery of God's pattern for living, and the mentoring of John Maxwell, Kevin turned around his life and leadership. God taught Kevin that he was living his life backwards. He discovered a biblical pattern for living, which transformed his life, leadership, and relationships. Only then did the church start growing.Now he and John are teaching others what Kevin learned so that readers can also apply the lessons and live life to the fullest as Jesus promised in John 10:10. Using a baseball diamond as an analogy for living by God's pattern, Kevin teaches an idea that's simple enough to communicate to a child, yet has enough depth to carry the truths to adults. Each base on a baseball diamond represents God's desired pattern for life: Connection with God, Character, Community, and Competence. The breakdown occurs because most people run the bases backwards. In our performance-based culture, they run straight to third base (Competence), focusing on performance to the detriment of relationships, character, and their connection with God.
