“Fix your attention on God. You’ll be changed from the inside out.”

Romans 12:2, The Message

Through NavPress’s life-changing messages, be transformed in heart and mind by the work of the Holy Spirit. The result will be . . .

Transformed Relationships Transformed Character Transformed Service Transformed Influence NavPress has returned to its roots of publishing resources that assist believers on a biblically based journey with Christ. For that reason, we have established a strategy and differentiator that we call Discipleship Inside


New believers need guidance in establishing their relationship with God and others. Living in communities of grace and truth enables believers to discover and define who they are and how they should live.



Becoming disciples of Jesus begins a lifelong transformation process and pursuit of Christlikeness. Believers will engage in spiritual disciplines that will profoundly affect their character, behavior, and decision-making process.


Transformation requires tools and support to help believers be equipped for service and find their place of ministry in the body of Christ.

By the power of God, believers can experience transformation of their whole being, resulting in healing, forgiveness, freedom, and increased influence among their family, friends, church, and community.

You can trust NavPress to provide resources that God can use to transform lives. Join us in our calling to Establish, Engage, Equip, and Empower believers in their journey of faith. We’ve added the category for each new release to show how NavPress products fit into different Discipleship Inside Out segments.

SOLO: A Devotional for New Believers The Message//REMIX: SOLO Devotions for New Believers New believers are excited to engage with God and know Him better. They also are in need of both encouragement and instruction. SOLO Devotions for New Believers features sixty passages from the Old and New Testaments of The Message. These verses focus on helping new believers understand their new faith in Christ. Through the practice of lectio divina—or “divine reading,” an ancient approach to studying Scripture modernized for today’s reader—they will learn how to Read, Think, Pray, and Live Scripture. The devotion can be completed in approximately fifteen minutes a day and is structured to help readers spend time interacting with, meditating on, and praying through the text. The tone of SOLO is conversational, and the American English it’s written in is the same language we use every day in our homes and workplaces.

KEY SELLING POINTS: • Selection of sixty passages from the Old and New Testaments specifically for new believers and those new to lectio divina • Not dated so it can be started any time of the year • Allows time for review and reflection on every seventh day • Includes the Scripture reference for the full passage • An introduction on how to use SOLO • A topical index for finding issues that impact daily life • Arranged in the same style as the best-selling The Message//REMIX: SOLO

A Better Understanding of Who We Are in Christ Rewritten Every person’s life is one of a kind, and we all have the potential to develop into something remarkable because we are created in God’s image. When we become who He designed us to be and accomplish the tasks that are appointed to only us, we will experience the greatest fulfillment we’ll ever know and enhance the lives of those around us. The problem is that we create our own stories, which don’t measure up to God’s best. Because we are too valuable to be left with a flawed story, God will pursue us when our stories have gotten off track. Rewritten takes a fresh look at how we can live life as God’s image bearer. It guides readers through five life opportunities that will rewrite their stories and bring hope to a broken world.

KEY SELLING POINTS: • Offers hope to anyone whose story has been destroyed by his or her own choices • Discussion questions after each major section of the book • Can be used in a snall-group setting or read individually
