  1. ps. In addition to thanking you for your recommendation of Paradoxy as your “Book of the Month” for February 2012, I also want to thank you for reminding me of how much I love Bruce Cockburn. I still remember how captivated I was by his song “Wondering Where the Lions Are” when it came out in the early 70’s (I know… I’m dating myself). – Ken Howard (author, Paradoxy)

  2. Hello,

    I am so blessed to be given a chance to undergo into a workshop with module 1 and 2 of this book. I am just wondering if this book fits to be discussed with UMYF age ranging for 12-24. If so can you suggest an approach with young people as audience?


  3. Dan:

    I have your book Equipped for Every Good Work. I am planning on taking some of the folks from my congregation through this study but am unable to access the website so that I can get the material. Can you give me any advise in how to do this? If you would like you can send me an email at

    Thanks in advance for your help,

  4. Reverend Dick,
    This is one of those things where I didn’t make the connection until “just now”. One of the courses that we are teaching during our Lenten School uses your book “Revolutionizing Christian Stewardship for the 21st Century: Lessons from Copernicus (Discipleship Resources, 1997.)”

    Can you tell me where I can find two or three copies real quick. One source has them on back order for between 2 and 7 weeks – Amazon has them listed but I have to buy from three different suppliers to get the copies. Thanks for the help!

    (A private response works well unless the answer helps everyone else as well).

    In peace,

    • Hi, Tony,

      I have been looking all over for copies of my book, and am having trouble locating them. When it went out of print, I thought the rights would revert to me as author, but that was not the case. The GBOD chose to hold onto the rights, though they aren’t publishing the book. I would suggest you contact Betsey Schwartzentraub ( to see if she can help. She the director of stewardship ministries there and she may know how to get ahold of the books or at least a .pdf of the manuscript. Sorry I couldn’t locate any.

      • Dan,
        Thanks for letting me know. I was able to get a couple of copies from Amazon and had located some others from Church Warehouse. From what I have been told, this is a good book and maybe you should consider revising it just a bit so that it can be published again.

    • this message is for Dan R. Dick. my home church is very sick and in need of revival. the Lord Jesus is laying a foundation for this by introducing my to you who minister to people with food sin in their lives. i read through the book devotions for dieters every two days and my life in Christ is changing. and all the stores of people who are victors it like having a whole church in the spirit and I am the only one physically there but we are together in spirit I wish every person in that book knew so we can pray for each other. i know the LORD awaken his people out of sleep and someday we’ll all meet in heaven I’ll be praying for you and the winners always. love from Steven Drago scripture prayer warrior and Son of Jesus Christ.
