Customer Reviews For "One Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow"Write Your Own Review
One life is a great book for discerning God's calling on your life. He simplifies the often paralysing task of wondering what God's will is for your life. I had a few concerns on McKnights chapter on hell where he hints at an annihilationist stance but to focus on that would completely miss the point of the book. Overall, he provides very helpful insight; specifically for Christians in their formative years, in following the one life God has given us.
A lot of Christians have a desire to serve God more. This book goes over possible, and practical, ways in which an ordinary Christian can serve God (actually, none of us are ordinary). After reading it myself, buying it for someone, and lending it out to people, this book is one of the best I have read, ever!
