The Surprising Secret to Living a Whole and Healthy Life!

Eat right.
Share your faith.
Produce fruit for God.
Oh, and try to relax.

Ever feel like success in life is all about you? And even trying to "die to self" only makes you more self-consumed?

The Bible certainly has a lot to say about "you," but it has even more to say about "us." In fact, there are over 100 passages in the Bible where the two words let us are used. Let us not give up meeting together. . . . Let us encourage one another. . . . Let us serve one another. Could it be that the only way to fix "me" is found in "we"?

Sure, that all sounds good to the "people persons" among us, but what about those who prefer to go it alone?

It turns out, the people who think they don't need community may need it most of all! In these pages, pastor Rusty George--a self-proclaimed introvert by nature--gives you the tools to "do life together," whether that feels natural to you or not. He shares such secrets as how to become more vulnerable, how to draw other people into your everyday life, and how to lean on others in times of need. Together we connect with God better. Together we heal better. Together we overcome fears, raise families, fight temptations, and bless the world better.

Learn what it means to live in true community and find the fulfillment you've been looking for!

"Rusty speaks on one of the most important topics in the world with grace, humor, and insight. Read it deeply, read it twice--but don't read it alone!"--John Ortberg, senior pastor of Menlo Church, author of I'd Like You More If You Were More Like Me

"Christianity was never meant to be a solo endeavor. In Better Together, Rusty George exposes the self-destructive folly of attempting to turn our personal relationship with the Lord into a private and isolated spiritual quest. It won't work. It never has."--Larry Osborne, pastor and author, North Coast Church

"If you are tired of languishing in loneliness, why not take steps toward connecting in community. Rusty's writing is honest and practical. His life and leadership model the message of Better Together."--Dave Stone, pastor, Southeast Christian Church

"As a professional athlete, I can tell you the value of community, teamwork, and playing together! Rusty's book captures what that can look life in everyday life!"--Darryl Strawberry, former major league baseball player, founder and pastor of Strawberry Ministries

"What if your relationships were life-giving instead of draining? My friend Rusty George will get you there! His book Better Together overflows with practical wisdom."--Lee Strobel, bestselling author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith

"The best leaders are ones who know how to work and collaborate with others. And Better Together can serve as a great resource for making sure you avoid isolation, and instead pursue building relationships that are life-giving and life-lasting."--Brad Lomenick, founder, BLINC, author of H3 Leadership and The Catalyst Leader

"Rusty George writes with such conviction, humility, and laugh-out-loud humor, I'll read anything he writes. But this book hit a little too close to home. In a selfie world, we need this challenge that life truly is Better Together."--Vince Antonucci, pastor, of Verve Church and author of God for the Rest of Us

"Rusty George is a powerful source of wisdom and insight."--Gavin O'Connor, director of The Accountant and Warrior
