9780692554289: Copycat: Finding Our Originality

It all begins with being called ... copycat.

We were born to be copycats. From the age of 4 months, humans copy everything they hear and see. God hardwired us to learn this way. From butterflies to the Beatles, Coca-Cola to Xerox, examples of mimicry are everywhere. Even the Mona Lisa can't hide her smile from being copied. We can't escape from becoming copycats!

What if we embraced our gift of copying instead of refusing to learn from others? For each season of our lives, we are given processes to endure with mentors to see us through. By embracing our ability to copycat others, we become bursting with potential, positioned to pioneer something altogether original. The Bible shows believers how God has been the catalyst igniting countless generations of copycats before us, changing the world in the process. Trusting God sets off a chain reaction of events through His followers, inspiring other copycats to follow.

If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, who will copycat you?

From the Inside Flap:

"This book is an intriguing addition to new thinking on the dynamics of discipleship. Mimesis, or 'copy-catting' as Phil calls it, is an intrinsic part of what it means to imitate Christ and therefore to follow him. By cleverly mixing theology with social science, Phil helps us understand a basic aspect of relationship with Jesus."

Alan Hirsch
Founder of Future Travelers / Forge Missional Training Network.
Author, The Permanent Revolution, Untamed, and The Faith of Leap

"God-given potential, deep spirituality, mentors who strategically walk with us--these are the makings of immense creativity and influence. Copycat leads us into this life-consuming adventure of discovering our originality and living out God's unique plan for each of our lives. Along the steps of this journey Phil Zarns guides us in an engaging, personal way, with a style that is authentically thoughtful and entertainingly creative."

Jim Bradford
General Secretary for The Assemblies of God, USA
Author, Lead So Others Can Follow

"Engaging, articulate and biblically grounded, Copycat is a gift to those who are serious about mentoring people to follow Jesus in our 21st century world."
Dr. Beth Grant Project Rescue, Professor | Author, Courageous Compassion

"Copycat: Finding our Originality is a fresh new take on learning, and the process of making disciples."
Rod Loy, Lead Pastor, North Little Rock | Author, Immediate Obedience

"Here in Sweden we live with strong secular-rational values and also a strong individualistic self-expressing trend. In that environment we need this book which I warmly recommend for reading."
Daniel Alm, Pastor, Pingst Västerås

"Phil has provided a refreshing perspective on mentoring through this book."
Aaron Allison, Lead Pastor, Church at Indian Lake

"If we are going to reach the next generation, we need to be the best versions of who God created us to be."
Rob Ketterling, Lead Pastor, River Valley Church | Author, Change Before You Have To, Thrill Sequence

"Copycat will inspire each of us to be better mentors and coaches."
Clarence St. John, Superintendent, Minnesota District of the Assemblies of God

"Impressed with Phil's approach, I appreciate the non-confrontative style and the soft approach to truth - yet it comes across without compromise!"
Dr. Gregory Michael Mundis, Sr., Director of World Missions for The Assemblies of God U.S.A.

"If you want to a big impact in individual lives, Copycat shows you how. My recommendation, do not read this book alone."
Ryan Skoog, Missionary Entrepreneur, Co-Founder of Venture Expeditions, Fly for Good, Volunteer Card, Workshop Chicago, Faith Ventures

"After reading Copycat you will be inspired to become the individual that Jesus has designed you to be."
Joseph Fehlen, Author, Ride On : A Motorcycle Journey to Awaken the Soul and Rediscover its Maker

"In Copycat (which is an extremely enjoyable read), Phil shows us a better way to pass on the life and ways of Jesus to others."
Matt Brown, Evangelist, Founder of Think Eternity | Author, Awakening

"Phil inspires towards personal development using everyday-life metaphors while calling attention to the role models around us."
Lydia and Nicklas Mörling, Pastors of Twentyfour Church, Sweden
