Grant Borrows' life has just taken a drastic left turn. There's another man in the world wearing his face and living his life. What's more, the man he sees in the mirror is a stranger. Somehow, he's been Shifted -- his whole life fundamentally altered, in the space of a single breath. But the changes don't stop at skin-level. Inexplicably, he's able to affect objects around him by simply thinking about them. And as he soon learns, he's become the central figure in a vast web of intrigue that stretches from an underground global conspiracy to a prophecy dating back over seven thousand years, that tells of his coming. Enemies and allies find him at every turn, but one thing they all learn very quickly is that you don't want to push Grant Borrows too far... Can destiny be undone? The players are ready. The game is in motion. And the pace is Relentless. In the allegorical tradition of Tolkien and Lewis comes a powerful new myth for a new generation.
Discover two very different sides of God! Peruse the pages of this book of insightful meditations and you'll encounter Christ's explosive power and his incredible tenderness. You will be forever changed as Manning calls you to "adopt the astonishing life of a committed disciple." Perceptive writing flavored with tough-love honesty.
