It all started in Disney World — more or less. That’s where I first read Hugh Hewitt’s book of wisdom In, But Not Of Revised & Updated: A Guide to Christian Ambition and the Desire to Influence the World. You can read more about what happened next here. The end result is the release of the revised and expanded edition of the book.
Based on a decade of teaching and applying the book’s principles, I prepared a practical Study Guide that now enhances the book as a practical life tool for growth and influence.
In addition to the Study Guide that is now part of the book, I created a separate In, But Not Of: Leader’s Guide for small group, church, or classroom study. And then I made it available to group leaders here for free. That’s right. No charge. Just promise to use it to equip more people to live out real life with real faith.

Here’s a sample of wisdom from the new edition of
Hugh Hewitt’s In, But Not Of: Study Guide Edition
“Without preparation there is no success, and without success, there will be no influence.”
“The reality for all Christians is the obligation to equip themselves for their greatest impact and to seek every opportunity to increase that impact.”
“Christians need to seek influence. They need to acquire it. They need to use it once they have it. But first they must acquire it.”
“How are you going to fulfill the Great Commission if you haven’t got a clue about what’s been happening in the world in the two thousand years since Jesus entered it?”
- “Life is a habit. Remember that. Life is a habit.”
- “There are serious things to accomplish, and they are set before each human being. You choose to do them, or you choose to do other things.”
- “Success is not zero-sum, so promote the success of others.”
- “Know whom you owe. Know that you owe. You’re fooling yourself if you think you made it or will make it on your own.”
- “Strong church equals stronger faith. It is that simple.”
- “Leadership is not for the easily offended.”
