There is nothing quite as compelling as a personal story–an account of someone’s life, radically changed. This book is filled with some of these amazing stories.
Across North America and around the world, millions of people are proclaiming a new anthem: “I Am Second.” No longer are they number one. These people have come alive to the truth that God has a plan for this world…a plan that specifically includes them. In this book you will discover their stories–some from notable people and some not so well known– who have had a life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ and are walking in radical obedience by putting Him first in their lives.
These stories are raw and real, dealing with the darkest moments of the human experience. Addictions, depression, infidelity, abortion, cancer, pornography, loneliness, jealousy, divorce, war…each story shows the redemptive power of Jesus…bringing purpose and true joy to every secret place of life. Along with each story, there are also helpful insights from the Bible and authentic life application for you or a group of your friends to discuss.
Your story may not be included in this book…but you too can be a Second.
I really enjoy the message that this book is trying to give to all of us–Christians and non-Christians– the why we decide to put us Second. At first I thought this book was going to be all boring, but after reading the first story I was intrigued by it. After I read Brian “Head” Welch’s story I just kept going.
This book is a real eye opener for someone who is apart from Jesus and for one that doesn’t know Jesus. You can see stories from famous people and normal people like you and me.
One of the things that I liked about this book is that after each story they give you an URL for you to see the film of the story you’d just read or to read more stories like the one you just read, they also give you a Scan Code so you can see it from your Android or Smartphone.
Overall, I like this book and I would recommend it to anyone.
