66: The I AM in Me
In the midst of our human story, whether comedy or tragedy, lies a great love story that we can ever tell or even begin to imagine. It’s a story of heavenly elation. It’s a story of desire and compassion. It has a fairy tale beginning, a mind-blowing inciting incident and, if you can even fathom the idea, an ending that hasn’t even been written yet. This book looks to capture that love story through spoken word, poetry, and creative writing. “66: The I AM in Me” is Derrick Engoy’s third book.

Are you bored with Christianity?

Bored, /bord/ adjective weary being unoccupied or lacks interest in one’s current activity: He was bored with  the religious routine.

Christianity, /kris chee ‘a nit ee/ noun 1. a world religion based on the teachings of Jesus of Nazareth. 2.  religious routine: She was bored with Christianity.

Many people, today, are fleeing from Christianity. Because the boredom disease, which seems to have  plagued its members, is running rampant inside the church, many search elsewhere for the love and hope that Jesus stood for.

Maybe it’s you that has become bored with Christianity.

This book was written with the intent of rediscovering, not just another world religion; rather, the heart of  God defined by a life that requires a revolutionary and radical leap down the path led by Jesus Christ. This  book was written to encourage a life lived outside of the “religious routine” and into a life of mystery,  excitement and redemption.
