New Book Announcement: “Ordinary: How to Turn the World Upside Down”


Hello World,

Well, the ordinary cat is out of the bag.

In January 2015, my new book, Ordinary: How to Turn the World Upside Downwill be released. I hope to encourage ordinary people like you to do the ordinary things with gospel intentionality for the good of a broken world.

In Acts 17, we see a picture of obedient followers of Jesus who were described by city officials as those who “turned the world upside down.”

To turn the world upside down, you don’t have to be a megachurch pastor, or have an impressive platform. You simply need to live on mission – in word and deed – within the ordinary rhythm of life. We need millions of ordinary, genuine followers of Jesus to live with gospel intentionality daily, not 20 more conference speakers.

This kind of life might not seem spectacular or sensational in the eyes of some, but from a Kingdom perspective, it truly is extraordinary.

The book will be available nationwide on January 1st, 2015. You can pre-order a copy today through one of the retailers below (or check with your favorite retailer):

Everyone is not called to live in a mud-hut in India. Some are. We should celebrate and support those that are. But what about the rest of us? What should we do? I hope that this book will help see the significance of the ordinary, mundane, and trivial. God really does use ordinary people like us.
