Right in the middle of the chaos and division, heartache and anxiety, we are faced with the seemingly impossible words of Jesus—that He came to give us life to the fullest.
But what do you do when this “life to the fullest” feels so far away? What do you do when the deepest longing of your soul groans for more than what you are experiencing? If there is “life to the fullest,” how do we even begin to find it, and then how do we begin to extend it to others?
In his most poetic and thought-provoking work to date, Brandon Andress makes the surprising discovery that, even in the heartache, the hostility, the division, the violence, and the oppression, experiencing “life to the fullest,” a life of shalom, is not just possible, it can be our present reality. But in order to discover it, we must learn how to see and live differently—moment by moment—for the transformation of our lives, our families, our relationships, and our communities.
