I picked up a copy of Dave and Jon Ferguson’s book “Exponential” yesterday. After reading the first fifty pages, my first question was: “Why didn’t I buy this book five years ago?” Then I realized it hadn’t been written five years ago … so I felt a bit less guilty.
In 2001, when Tonya and I were leaving the Churches of Christ, I interviewed for the Senior Associate Pastor position with Dave and Jon’s dad, Earl Ferguson. The job went to the other candidate but I was honored to be considered. A large part of the attraction for me was the opportunity to apprentice for two years with Earl. Now, ten years later, I’m able to be a virtual apprentice to his sons through their writing.
How cool is that!
