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.

    " I really enjoyed this. McKnight presents a well-thought out & clear introduction to what it means to follow Jesus in this life. He touches on a great number of themes & yet doesn't lose clarity & cohesiveness throughout the book. "

    " This is an awesome book on what it means to be a Christian, a follower of Jesus. We have to move beyond knowing (which we're OK at) and begin doing (which we're not so good at). Knowing isn't growing, doing is! "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Pat Roseman | 1/3/2012

    " This was quite a challenging book. He says some things about the Christian life that I will have to wrestle with. Gave me a lot of food for thought. "

  • 1 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 51 out of 5 Kevin | 12/22/2011

    " Stay away unless you want social gospel, wishy-washy liberal Christianity-lite. "

    " any book that I cry my way through, take notes on, and have to put down every other page just to contemplate what I've just read gets 5 stars from me. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Randi Carroll | 2/8/2011

    " I enjoyed some chapters more than others but the ones that stuck out made a huge impact on the way I understand the Kingdom of God. I would recommend it to anyone trying to understand the Kingdom more fully. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Tom Wideman | 1/3/2011

    " This would be a great book for new members/Christian group at your church. "
