“Christianity seems like just another screwed-up religion!” Anna said. “Seriously, what has Christianity done for us—or for the world, for that matter? They’re just a bunch of hypocrites, that’s what I think! Are they good for anything?”
“I don’t know, Anna,” Caleb said. “I just don’t know.”
Caleb has been a Christian for a long time. But he realizes that he can’t bring himself to share his faith with anyone because it doesn’t sound like good news anymore. Christianity’s truth claims come across as hollow, arrogant and intolerant. Christians have a bad track record of hating and condemning those they disagree with. Worst of all, it feels like Christianity is just about “saving souls,” giving people an escape ticket to heaven while the world falls apart. Is it only about Jesus forgiving our sins? There must be more to it than that…
In this engaging narrative, James Choung weaves the tale of a search for a Christianity worth believing in. Disillusioned believer Caleb and hostile skeptic Anna wrestle with the plausibility of the Christian story in a world of pain and suffering. They ask each other tough questions about what Jesus really came to do and what Christianity is supposed to be about. Along the way, they discover that real Christianity is far bigger than anything they ever heard about in church. And the conversion that comes is not one that either of them expects.
Join Caleb and Anna on their spiritual journeys as they probe Christianity from inside and out. Get past the old clichÉs and simplistic formulas. And discover a new way of understanding and presenting the Christian faith that really matters in a broken world.
What does it mean to follow Jesus? And how should we help others become more like him?
Once upon a time, being a Christian seemed clear. Say these words, pray these prayers, do these things. But out in the real world, following Jesus feels more nebulous. What’s the point?
That’s Stephen’s struggle in these pages as he wonders if he has missed his calling. In this compelling narrative, James Choung explores what it means to follow Jesus in the real world. Is Christianity something you just believe in, or can it be something you actually live out? Engineer Stephen wants to encourage his younger colleague Jared in his spiritual journey, but both feel at a loss. Stephen’s friend Bridget offers insights on how Boomers, Xers, Millennials and younger generations approach spiritual questions, with implications for discipleship, community and service. Together they walk through deepening stages of faith as they discern how God is calling them to live.
Join Stephen, Bridget and Jared on their journey of following Jesus, as they discover what it means to move from skeptic to world-changer. And find new pathways for Christian discipleship and disciplemaking in a world yearning for hope.
