"This book is for those who need a fresh take on Jesus and what it means to live the kind of life he teaches us to live. This pursuit of Jesus is leading us backward as much as forward. . . . I am learning that what seems brand new is often the discovery of something that's been there all alongit just got lost somewhere and it needs to be picked up, dusted off, and reclaimed."
