He has written and edited more than 30 books and eBooks, many of them are collaborations with key leaders and organizations. Two of his latest book projects include Unconditional Love (B&H Publishing Group), and Hope in Front of Me (with former American Idol finalist Danny Gokey, NavPress). His next book, The Outlaw, the Magician, and the Hero, is scheduled to be released in 2015 (Abingdon Press).
On A More Personal Note
Ben is a natural disruptor, writer of sentences and paragraphs, voracious reader, digital communications junkie, and completely geeky about marketing and technology. As often as he can, Ben spends time with his wife and two young boys. The rest of the time he likes hanging out in his little cottage in the backyard where he works.
Ben writes about 10,000 words every week.
