New cover: we decided to use imagery that tied into the theme of being built on rock.
New subtitle: I never really liked the old subtitle "Unearthing What I Believe and Why It Matters" because being "dug down deep" isn't about unearthing so much as it is digging down. The new sub is "Building Your Life on Truths that Last."
New Endorsements: I was very honored to have Wayne Grudem, Thabiti Anyabwile, Jerry Bridges and Adam Young add their kind endorsements to the book. Thank you!
New Introduction: It's only a page and a half, but the intro helps establish the purpose of the book and explains that we're all building our lives on some foundation--and the only true foundation is the truth of who Jesus is and what he's done to save us.
New Group Discussion Guide: We heard from a lot of church study groups, campus ministries and youth groups who are using the book and wanted discussion questions. So the publisher created a chapter-by-chapter guide with questions to spark conversation and deeper reflection.
New Suggested Resources: For each chapter we've included a list of follow-up resources.
New Format: It's paperback! Which means it's less expensive. I was very grateful for the first edition in hardback--it was my first real, grown-up hardback book. But to be honest, I prefer the paperback. It's easier to read and I just like the feel of it.
You can order the paperback version of Dug Down Deep from Amazon.com.
