Have you ever considered why the cities of Sodom and Gomorrah were destroyed? It wasn’t because their wickedness was beyond saving. No, it was because ten godly people could not be found among them. If only ten had been found righteous, entire populations could have been spared! Yet, Lot was a man of faith who lived in the land for fifteen years. Why didn’t he influence others? Was he afraid of being labeled intolerant or politically incorrect? What held him back from sharing God’s love?
The same things that kept Lot from having a life of influence, are the very things keeping us on the sidelines. Like Lot, many of today’s Christians do not put their faith into action. Lot teaches us a valuable lesson of what happens when our faith is inactive. Looking at Lot’s inaction will motivate us to live a life of positive influence. We can save our cities and our nation. God is still looking for His righteous to illuminate the darkness of our cities today. He’s asking you to flip the switch: Are you ready to put your faith, hope and love into action?

“I hope that this book will inspire you to step out and meet your God on the waters, to see in the darkest of places the greatest of lights, and to know the great joy of taking God’s hand as you walk through the world to see it transformed by His beauty. We owe ourselves, our children, and our world a living demonstration of a working faith. Not merely believing the right doctrine but knowing the God who called us. I know this book will awaken in you the passion to demonstrate Jesus to a world that desperately needs Him.”

Jeff Lupinacci on The Review
While I do not always agree with all of the authors comments, I do think this excellent book provides practical and implementable ways to live a life of purpose and influence in your community. While reading the book, I was reminded of Colossians 3:12-14 - "So, chosen by God for this new life of love, dress in the wardrobe God picked out for you: compassion, kindness, humility, quiet strength, discipline. Be even-tempered, content with second place, quick to forgive an offense. Forgive as quickly and completely as the Master forgave you. And regardless of what else you put on, wear love. It’s your basic, all-purpose garment. Never be without it." The authors challenge us in "Only Ten" to put on our all-purpose garment of love, engage our community and live a life a faith.

Only ten was written in a very unique way. Beginning with Lot and his family and their search for 10 godly people.
Jeff and Nick's stories and testimonies that were inserted throughout the book brought real life to it . I could not put this book down.
I think Only Ten would make a wonderful gift to for some of my Christian friends. I intend to order a few more .

Are your customers raving about you on social media? Share their great stories to help turn potential customers into loyal ones.The word “righteousness” has all but lost its meaning outside of Sunday morning services, which is why followers of Christ need this guide to help define what righteousness can mean in their everyday lives. The authors, Jeff and Nick, have put together a practical guide to the Christian in today’s workplace.
This book works great as a stand-alone read, and it works even better as a group study.
