Today, I’m putting the “U” in man-U-script.

For the past several months, I’ve been typing away on a manuscript project. Now, I need your help.

The working title is: Underdog: A no-nonsense guide to preparing for a life that matters. Inspired by a troubling trend of seeing so many of my friends’ faith go flat as they’ve entered their early adult years, Underdog talks straight about questions like:

  • Does my life really matter? Why?
  • Is living my faith day-to-day honestly worth the risks?
  • How can I hang on to my faith and go the distance?

Several friends and family members have patiently struggled to make sense of the scribbles that I called a “rough draft.” Many of them have told me that Underdog provides a unique perspective from life and Scripture that puts together things they’ve always known in a fresh, encouraging, and challenging way.

Now, it’s ready for beta testing. That’s where “U” come in. I’ve created a special blog where you can read the manuscript, interact with it, and give feedback: http://underdogtheblog.com. If you’d rather download pdfs to read, you can do that from the blog, too.

I know, you’re not supposed to beta test manuscripts. But to be honest, I don’t have any business creating manuscripts anyway – what with all the real writers out there. It’s not really a book and I’m not really a writer, so I’m allowed to do non-writerish things like beta testing. Right?

The way I see it, I have a very sharp group of friends and it would be a shame to let all that brilliance go to waste. Maybe some of it will rub off on me.

If you’re already super-excited and you want to get started reading, then here you go….

Thanks for checking it out!
