Overview

  • A 2005 Evangelical Christian Publishing Association Gold Medallion finalist.


How can we make our lives matter?

John Adams and Thomas Jefferson lived in serious times. And, because they chose to live serious lives, they turned the course of history.

As the modern era transitions into postmodern turbulence, we, too, find ourselves in serious times. How can we make a difference in the world around us? How can we be an influence for Christ? Most important, how can we make our lives matter?

There is a a great movement of God set loose in the world. In this book, James Emery White explores what it means to be at the front lines of what God is doing. When serious times are met with serious lives, the kingdom of God is advanced.

Come and discover a life of significance.
