Jesus is different. Go and do likewise.

Many Christians have become comfortable letting the world mold them instead of being set apart by God. And many churches have traded in their biblical roots for complacent conventionality. But Jesus and the church are anything but conventional. The hallmark of our faith is that it sees the world differently than the world sees itself.

We are called to be eccentric—off center, unique, different; not conformed to the patterns of the world but transformed by the renewing of our minds. By the grace of God we are not only dissatisfied by sin but increasingly uncompelled by conventionality.

So resist the allure of acceptability. Get back to the unsafe roots of our faith. Be equipped to surprise the world with the Good News it didn’t even know it was waiting for. Challenge the way things are by living a life that has been truly set free by Christ.

Endorsements:
Mike Frost is one of the sharpest thinkers we’ve got. I don’t just mean that he’s clever (he is), but that his ideas cut through nonsense with prophetic clarity. And so, of course, this book does
just that. Large swaths of the Western church are in dire danger of cultural assimilation at the precise time that our wider culture is looking for new ideas and alternative answers. Thank God, then, for Mike’s message, which calls us back to the glorious weirdness of the gospel.

Michael Frost reminds us with winsome prose and challenging clarity that if our neighbors don’t see us living out our Christian faith together as alternative story, something has gone horribly
wrong. Read this book and ignore the noise of conformity. If we do, the best days of the local church are just ahead of us.
