Author: Jared C. Wilson
Genre: Christian Living
Too many discipleship books are written for perfect people who know all the right Sunday school answers.
This book is for the rest of us--people who screw up, people who are weary, people who are wondering if it's safe to say what they're really thinking. With incisive wit, warm humor, and moving stories, Jared Wilson shows us how the gospel actually works through us and in us, even when we can't get our act together. The result is a faith that weathers storms, lifts burdens, and deepens our friendship with God.

The booked called out to me by the title alone and it did not let me down. It is by no means a quick read. I found myself stopping to re-read, to contemplate his comments or at the end of chapter my brain was mush with his insight that I needed a break. I felt compelled many times to dog-ear pages in my copy to have easy access to passages that affected me. “Wouldn’t you rather have the antidote for sin then an eight step treatment plan to simply medicate against it?” (pg 30). Jared C Wilson writes for the disciple who might not feel that they are worthy enough to be one. This book has found a permanent spot on my shelf and I plan to go in search of more by this author.
