Dallas/Ft. Worth, TX—What’s the real reason behind whatever we’ve accomplished in life—whatever we’ve been able to become and achieve and fulfill? Is it our own hard work,

our own talents and abilities, our own perseverance? Or have things happened in and through our lives for which none of those factors can account? In Unexplainable: Pursuing a Life Only God Can Make Possible (David C Cook, September 2009), trusted author Don Cousins guides readers in how to experience lives of such remarkable quality and impact that people who watch them have to shake their heads and honestly say, “There’s really no explanation for it—except God!” 

Cousins, co-creator of the Network curriculum, believes that this kind of living is impossible—until we bring God into the equation and “lifeshift” our values away from worldly standards to be more in sync with God’s initiatives. “We must discover and cultivate lives that can be explained only by God’s participation…so that He’s the only explanation for our lives,” says Cousins. “In Unexplainable I explore how we can attain the kind of lives where God Himself becomes the all-fulfilling dynamic behind our unshakable contentment, our profound significance and our abiding success.” 

In Unexplainable, Cousins offers readers a systematic approach to changing the way they live as he guides them through “lifeshifts” for experiencing contentment, success and significance to a degree that’s beyond anything the world offers. Readers will learn the five secrets for finding contentment in life, regardless of their circumstances, and discover God’s criteria for measuring the success of their lives. They’ll also come to see that God has already given them all they need to make a difference in the world. 

Intended to create a new movement among all those who call upon God to lead their lives, Unexplainable is a strong complement to Cousins’ previously released Experiencing LeaderShift products. The individual life-change encouraged by Unexplainable will fit hand-in-glove with the organizational change encouraged in Experiencing LeaderShift. 

A small-group curriculum DVD for Unexplainable: Pursuing a Life Only God Can Make Possible has also been created to further explore the profound themes and insights found in Unexplainable. Giving the reader and small-group participant a great start in making strategic adjustments in their lives, each of the eight sessions focuses on a section of Unexplainable and offers practical ways to pursue the kind of life made possible only by God.
