Salvation stories of notable and everyday people inspire a revolution of "seconds" and create more radically obedient followers of Christ.
Across the United States and the world, hundreds of thousands of people are proclaiming a new anthem: “I Am Second.” They have come alive to the truth that God has a plan for this world and his glory, a plan that includes allowing everyone who has faith in Jesus to enter a loving relationship with the God of the universe. In I Am Second, readers encounter story after story of notable people throughout culture who have had a radical, life-changing encounter with Jesus Christ.
Each story in this powerful book is raw and real, dealing with the darkest moments of the human experience. Drugs, addictions, depression, infidelity, pride, abortion, cancer, pornography, marriage, divorce, war—each story shows the redemptive power of the gospel to rescue us in the greatest depths of our human need, even in the secret areas of our lives. Alongside each story, readers are given study group questions and an offer to view related testimonies to find the freedom Christ offers.
