The New York Times bestselling author of The Ruthless Elimination of Hurry and Live No Lies reveals the obstacles holding us back from authentically following Jesus and presents countercultural practices to connect us with a vibrant, lifelong faith.
We all have experienced unwanted parts of our spiritual journey: distance from God, gaps in our character, the fear that our lives will be trivial and empty. Jesus is calling us into more. Calling us to be shaped in his likeness. To experience his abundance of life. But how, practically, can we do that? By becoming his apprentice. By practicing the Way.
Outlining the timeless process of being with Jesus, becoming like him, and living as he did, bestselling author and teacher John Mark Comer unpacks God's vision for the journey of our soul. In this powerful and practical work, he explains his core philosophy of spiritual formation to help us form a "rule of life." Along the way he offers rich cultural insight, deep biblical teaching, and his honest and hopeful view of the potential of each human soul.
By simply following Jesus and embracing countercultural practices around hospitality, Sabbath, simplicity, scripture, and community, Comer invites us to lay aside our assumptions about discipleship and embrace apprenticeship under Jesus as a way of life.
Do you feel like there's more to life? You're right. Now come discover just how much life awaits you.
