“Mike Wilkins has long been one of my few heroes in life. In this heroic and engaging book, Mike accesses the wisdom of his own heroes, processes it through his own vigorous engagement with life, and articulates it in fresh and refreshing ways for today.

“Outside of the Bible, good books have been my major source of wisdom when it comes to following Jesus in the daily, unspectacular and inescapable dimensions of life. These books have played the role of the proverbial ‘three square meals a day.’ But we humans are also inveterate ‘snackers’–hence the many guidelines for healthy snacking. However, the literary equivalents of the latter are hard to find—especially when it comes to the pursuit of God. Mike Wilkins FOUR FORTY-FOUR and other Bits and Pieces fits the bill admirably—a most enjoyable and insightful companion to GLORY IN THE FACE.”
