Awake

 

 

 

 

 

 

I know I am a little biased, but I truly believe Joel’s book is breaking ground in the world of publishing.

 

It is filled with links to a video that takes you deeper into the stories. In a couple of years, I believe we will see a whole lot more of this book format. Beyond that, the message is brilliant, the journey mesmerizing – you won’t be able to put it down!

Below is the review I wrote for the jacket. I have also added a couple of videos. The first is the trailer – you will probably love the music for this one. The second is for all those who have heard me tell the story of my brothers crane jump. Enjoy, then go buy the book HERE!

My Review – “I spoke with a warlord, traversed Antarctica’s wilderness, prayed with a slave, covertly filmed a protest in Tiananmen Square, laughed with a girl, and cried with an orphan after an earthquake devastated Haiti. I fell in love, had my heart broken, and encountered an even greater love. Joel masterfully tells the story – his, yours, and mine. His writing stirs the reader to dream. His wild adventures awaken a hunger to have our own. Inspired, humorous, and packed with revelation, Awake is just what the title promises, a full-on invitation to dream, love, and live our own story – a story that can change the world.”

SCOTT CROWDER / LEARNING TO BE PRESENT

Scott Crowder is a pastor, singer-songwriter, and one of Jason’s closest friends. The guys dive into their love for the church, about learning how to be present with God, ourselves, each other, and our community. Scott talks about creating church cultures that practice the fruits of the Spirit, learning to lead ourselves and others in seasons of joy and sorrow, that “success” isn’t about numbers, cool fads, or being ‘front runners,’ it’s discovered in community.

“The Wages of Sin…” in Context

What if “the wages of sin is death” is announcing the inherent consequences to sinful actions and what they will produce in this life, as opposed to saying if we sin we deserve torment?

A Hard Teaching & Burning Hearts

“Does this offend you?” the Emmaus Road Jesus asked His disciples. For many, it did, and understandably so. “From this time, many of his disciples turned back and no longer followed Him. ‘You do not want to leave too, do you?’ Jesus asked the Twelve.”

Simon Peter answered, ‘Lord, to whom shall we go? You have the words of eternal life. We have come to believe and to know that You are the Holy One of God.’”
