Authors of “One Month to Live” Offer Inspirational Response
to Rob Reiner’s New Movie, "The Bucket List"

The fact that the characters played by Jack Nicholson and Morgan Freeman in “The Bucket List” knew they were terminally ill made them eager to live life to the fullest. This concept is the point of a new book releasing Feb. 5, “One Month to Live: Thirty Days to a No-Regrets Life,” by pastors and life coaches Kerry and Chris Shook.

While most people view their mortality as a harsh and unwelcome reality, the Shooks teach people to find meaning, happiness and power by embracing the fact their time on earth is limited. “One Month to Live” stresses the importance of leaving a lasting legacy, one that will remain after people kick the proverbial bucket.

Kerry and Chris Shook, founders of Fellowship of The Woodlands, a mega-church located outside of Houston.

The Shooks are available to talk with media about the movie and the messages in their book on living and dying well. They are available by appointment in person or by phone.

“The truth is, we’re all terminal,” said Kerry. “The good news is that we don’t have to put off living a passionate and purposeful life until we’re faced with this reality. Although ‘The Bucket List’ is about two fictional characters, we hope it will start people thinking about their own mortality.”

“The Bucket List” is a story about two terminally ill patients from radically different backgrounds living it up in their final months. As pastors, the Shooks have had the privilege of walking alongside hundreds people in their final days. They have learned that when people know they are about to die, they make radical changes. In “One Month to Live,” Kerry and Chris Shook share examples and provide universal principles for how we can all live like we’re dying. By asking the question “What would I do if I had one month to live?” and acting on it, people can live more meaningful and intentional lives, creating a legacy that lasts.
