Are you living the life you're meant to live? ^Like Neo in "The Matrix," many of us know that something is wrong. We're haunted by the idea that there must be more to life than the status quo we see in us and around us. We wonder: Is this all there is-to work, education, marriage, sex, family, friendship, and church? ^Artful and inspiring, "New Way to Be Human "is a book for people who know something is wrong, are tired of faking it or forgetting it, and are eager to stumble after Jesus with passion and authenticity. Charlie Peacock-one of the most innovative musical creators of our time-gives us a fresh invitation to the amazing privilege, rich relationship, and meaningful work that a life of following Jesus is meant to be. ^
"New Way to be Human is...an alarm clock for the soul, ringing loudly, welcoming the dawn of a new day." from the foreword by Jon Foreman of Switchfoot "Artists are the best theologians. They feel things that are true before theologians can jargonize them into obscurity. What Charlie Peacock has written in this book is a good example of theological truth stated in a way that only an artist can." Tony Campolo, Ph.D., Professor Emeritus of Sociology, Eastern University "New Wayto Be Human isa 'just in time' book for me, speaking to many of the questions I have been wrestling with concerning how to actually live out this kingdom dream.This conversation aboutstoried living is helpingme expose and shed some of the sub-plots in my life that are incongruent with the larger story Godis tellingthrough his word and work. Charlie inspires me to wake upeach day to be a student-follower of Jesus Christ andnothing else." Sara Groves, recording artist and songwriter "Charlie Peacock takes us from the prophets of Israel to the prophets of song and cinema. He leads us on a journey that passes loopy stories and scholarly citations. It answers questions that are so real, so direct, so heartfelt that you may not be sure whether you are having fun or becoming a more authentic disciple." Dan Doriani, author of The Life of a God-Made Man and Putting the Truth to Work "Few people have the necessary gifts to communicate wonder in both music and words, and Charlie Peacock is one of those rare artists. In both the poetry of his lyrics and the thoughtful prose of his books, he asks just the right questions so that we see more deeply. Those hungry to be fully human will gravitate to New Way to be Human, not because Charlie is clever (though he is), but because his heart and imagination is aflame with The Story that brings both grace and hope in our fragmented world." Denis D. Haack, Ransom Fellowship, editor of Critique "This is a splendid book about real life in a good but fallen world where grace yet abounds. Peacock writes with compassion, integrity, and discernment." Quentin J. Schultze, author of Habits of the High-Tech Heart: Living Virtuously in the Information Age "This book will make you want to live. Not a tedious breathing in and out, in and out...but how you've known it should be. Your ideas about relationship with the Divine will expand." David Crowder of The David Crowder Band "There is something very freeing in Charlie's words: 'You can still be a student-follower of Jesus and not possess all truth, once-for-all universal certainty, and the answer to every question.' Much of my experience with American Christianity has been like an overly simplistic tract that tries too hard and says too little. This book has inspired me to reread and retell the Story with 'the widest, clearest view.' In sharing the clues he has found along the way, Charlie reminds me that I must humbly embrace what I know for sure, yet hold myself open to the mystery of the bigger story." Christine Dente, songwriter and recording artist (Out of the Grey) "I've known Charlie Peacock for twenty years as a songwriter, artist, and producer, but now he explodes on the scene as a deep-thinking theologian.Charlie has given this Wesleyan new insight on what it means to be fully sanctified.You will love New Way to Be Human."
