The Backward Life: In Pursuit of an Uncommon Faith
by Jarrod Jones
Jesus is totally backwards to the world. Rather than focus on his own desires, he lived to love others. He preached lessons that seemed contradictory: Die to live. Lose to gain. Love your neighbor as yourself. Is it possible to follow in his footsteps today? Can people live a faith that means something in a culture so focused on self? Meeting an MTV generation where it's at, The Backward Life shouts "YES!" In this provocative and challenging book, Jarrod Jones takes readers on a journey into a faith that dares members of our pop culture to live like Christ--to deny themselves and take up the cross. This kind of living may seem backward to the ways the world would have one find happiness and meaning, yet Jones shows how it delivers more fulfillment than anyone can imagine. Filled with real-life stories and honest teaching, The Backward Life offers a new look at a faith that will help readers discover who they are and who God is calling them to be.
