"As we begin to slowly transition into a new normal, some of us are recovering from illness or loss, and many of us are struggling with a loss of focus in our lives. If you are one of those who are not only looking forward to a new normal but also a new reason for being, I want to introduce you to Mark Scandrette and his new book The Ninefold Path of Jesus. If you're looking for a follower of Jesus who can offer you a pathway to a more compelling whole-life faith for times like these, check out this book. Mark will show you creative new ways to both be a difference and make a difference that reflect the ways of Jesus."

Tom Sine, coauthor with Dwight J Friesen of 2020s Foresight: Three Vital Practices for Thriving in a Decade of Accelerating Change

"God has created a world where systems work in constant concert within systems, that in turn serve other systems. And God designed these nested systems to foster a profound sense of thriving. Yet we find ourselves functioning in systems that work against systems. And many of these systems-whether physiological, economic, ecological, or ethical-are woefully out of whack. Creating disjointed and dissonant rhythms, we march to toward our own demise. My dear friend Mark Scandrette has discerned a pathway of recovery in the ancient teachings of Jesus. Mark has distilled for us a practical, accessible, and joy-filled new way of showing up in our lives that restores harmony in the systems we are a part of through Jesus' Beatitudes. If you, like me, are wearing a weighted weariness brought on by old ways of thinking and being, The Ninefold Path of Jesus is the book for you."

Eric Leroy Wilson, poet and pastor of University Church of Christ, Malibu

"Mark continues his embodied spiritual formation in The Ninefold Path of Jesus. This book is a refreshing, embodied, honest, at-times-funny, at-times-emotionally moving exploration into following the way of Jesus. As a visual person, I appreciate the ways The Ninefold Path of Jesus aesthetically moves the reader from a passive to an engaged posture of formation. This book is a helpful resource for anyone seeking to continue to walk fully, one step after the other, with Jesus and with others."
