Overview

Discover the Exhilaration of Simply Following Jesus

When Jesus called his disciples, his invitation was simple: "Follow me." But after deciding to follow Jesus, Greg Sidders found that this simple invitation is harder and scarier than it sounds. He suddenly had to ask himself, "How can I call myself a Christian when I don't do what Christ says?"

Sidders invites you to venture beyond risk-free Christianity. Join him on a spiritual journey through seven passages of Scripture in which Jesus describes what his disciples will do, and take the challenge to live the true adventure of following Jesus.

You'll discover what Greg did: that the teachings of Jesus seem hard—until we actually practice them. When we take the leap of obedience, we break through to the vibrant faith we long for.

"Greg Sidders has written a clear and powerful reminder that being 'all in' is Jesus's call to any and all who follow. This is one 'invitation' that I recommend everyone accept!"—Dennis J. Keating, senior pastor, Emmanuel Faith Community Church, Escondido, California

"As I read The Invitation, I kept saying 'Ouch!' and 'Hallelujah!' at the same time. With one great, gentle breath, Greg blew the fog off the gospel and off my misconceptions about following Jesus."—Brad Franklin, lead pastor, Lakeside Church, Folsom, California

Greg Sidders, a former journalist, is pastor of White Pine Community Church in Cumberland, Maine. He and his wife, Robin, have three sons.
