Upended: How Following Jesus Remakes Your Words and World is for everyday Christians who believe that in order to please God, they need to do big, radical things.
Jedd Medefind, president of the Christian Alliance for Orphans, and Erik Lokkesmoe, founder and principal of the Different Drummer entertainment agency, break down these false expectations and present concrete, down-to-earth examples of what it means to be a follower of Jesus.
With the understanding that most Christians don’t live like “peculiar people,” as the Scripture says, the authors show that a follower of Jesus is an apprentice—a student, one who is continually learning. Written from the perspective of a modern-day apprentice, the book shows that making small choices one at a time and day-by-day is what’s needed in following Christ.
Filled with scriptural references, personal insights and encouragement, Upended offers real-life application for any Christian, not just ministry leaders or those with seemingly endless resources. Medefind and Lokkesmoe lay out what it means to live an upended life while following Jesus.
