Yom Kippur… the holiest day on Israel’s calendar. In Scripture, it is a day of sacrifice; in Judaism, renunciation. But the Day of Atonement is meant to be far more profound—far more excruciating—than any mere traditional observance or ceremony. Rather, it is a day of humility, affliction and death—a day of disowning, separation and abandonment… of ourselves.
In an impassioned, piercing exhortation, Messianic Jewish author and teacher Kevin Geoffrey presents the Scriptural mandate for both the holiest day of the year and the daily life for Messiah’s disciples: deny yourself. Taken to heart, this message will not only change the way you view Yom Kippur, but will radically alter the course of your life. Read this challenging word at the risk of completely losing yourself—and then gaining your life anew in Yeshua!
Deny Yourself is part of the Preparing the Way InPrint Series.
Curt McCarthy –
This little book packs a large punch! It strongly cuts to the heart of our serving our Master Yeshua and our Father. Highly recommended to those who take their walk with Yeshua very seriously and want to go deeper still.

I used this book as a resource during our last Yom Kippur Service. As a Messianic Rabbi, I found it to be one of the greatest teaching resources for Yom Kippur that I have ever personally experienced. The congregation, as well as myself, was brought to tears as we read through the pages of Deny Yourself. Truly, if you are seeking how to humbly walk before the L_rd; if you are seeking to walk as our Master and Savior walked, this little book, “Deny Yourself” is the vehicle that can get you there. One more thing, this book is NOT just a book for the season of Yom Kippur – it a book that should be read several times throughout the year – it will help keep each reader in-check! Shalom and Todah, Joseph Kresefsky
