“Breaking good” is the opposite of “breaking bad.” It means to embrace God’s way of seeing and living. It means to go “all-in” for Jesus and to live life the way he wants us to.

As the author says in his introduction, “This is a book about repentance—real blood-and-guts repentance—that starts with a broken heart and produces a radically new way of thinking and acting; repentance that permeates every aspect of our lives; repentance that prepares us to live as citizens and agents of the kingdom of God in this rebellious world; repentance as a practice and a process that is integral to following Jesus every day.”

“I am no Walter White, but breaking bad comes quite naturally to me. Breaking good, as in walking in a repentant life, is much more challenging because it requires me to lay down my pride, self-interest, and it calls me to walk in a new direction. This is a guidebook for breaking good, and I need to read it repeatedly. You should as well.”
Author and pastor Chris Seay

“Engaging. Winsome. Wise. Highly recommended.”
