One Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow

Scot Mcknight
Also Available In

What is the "Christian life" all about? Studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, witnessing to others-those are all good. But is that really what Jesus has in mind? The answer, says Scot McKnight in One.Life, lies in Jesus' words, "Follow me." What does it look like to follow Jesus, and how will doing so change the way we live our life-our love.life, our justice.life, our peace.life, our community.life, our sex.life-everything about our life. One.Life will open your eyes to the full, compelling immensity of what it means to be a Christian. "Jesus offers to us a kingdom dream that transforms us to the very core of our being," says Scot McKnight. "His vision is so big we are called to give our entire life to it. His vision is so big it swallows up our dreams." Discover exactly what Jesus meant when he announced the arrival of God's kingdom. Equipping you with a new understanding of that kingdom's radical nature, One.Life shares profound, challenging, and practical insights on how to demonstrate its reality in your life. In many ways, what The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer challenged Christians to do in earlier generations, One.Life will do for a new generation. One.Life will call you beyond the flatlands of religiosity toward a kingdom vision that will shape everything you do.

Customer Reviews For "One Life: Jesus Calls, We Follow"

Write Your Own Review
insightful and helpful book for those wondering what God is calling them to.
4 stars By Tom, Oct 30 2017
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.

Challenging
5 stars By David, May 15 2013
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!
