"I’m part of the fellowship of the unashamed. The dye has been cast. I have stepped over the line, the decision has been made. I am a disciple of Jesus Christ. I won’t look back, let up, slow down, back away, or be still. My past is redeemed, my present makes sense, my future is secure. I’m finished and done with low living, sight walking, smooth knees, colorless dreams, tamed visions, worldly talking, cheap giving, and dwarfed goals. My face is set, my gate is fast, my goal is heaven, my road is narrow, my way is rough, my companions are few, my guide is reliable, my mission is clear. I won’t give up, shut up, let up, until I have stayed up, stored up, prayed up for the cause of Jesus Christ. I must go till He comes, give till I drop, preach till everyone knows, work till He stops me, and when He comes for His own, He will have no trouble recognizing me because my banner will have been clear.“ (Anonymous, Church in Africa)

Yancey writes: “The Jesus I got to know in writing this book is very different from the Jesus I learned about in Sunday school.  In some ways more comforting; in some ways more terrifying.”  Now you can share in the same exciting breakthroughs as the author.  This book will rock your preconceptions and challenge you with hard questions about why those of us who bear his name don’t do a better job of following him.
