In our self-help, DIY culture, we love the idea of improvement. We make-over wardrobes and restore houses and commit ourselves to better habits. But we’re still left feeling empty and not-quite-enough. That’s because what we need is not an upgrade but a complete upending of our lives. We need to be reborn. And it’s not something we can do by ourselves.
With deep compassion, Clayton King shares the compelling stories of 12 broken people who came face-to-face with Jesus in the New Testament and got a second chance at life. A respected religious leader, an ostracized woman, a despised embezzler, a condemned thief–all of them flawed, sinful, full of regret–encountered Jesus and were never the same. Along with their stories, King shares contemporary stories of people struggling with addiction, lust, greed, and depression, showing that Jesus still meets people right where they are and changes them from the inside out.
If you’re tired of going through the religious motions by your own power and long to experience the radical life and heart change that Jesus promised, it’s time for an encounter with Jesus. It’s time to be reborn.
