John Adams and Thomas Jefferson lived in serious times. And, because they chose to live serious lives they changed the course of history. Serious times met with serious lives. This is the means by which the kingdom of God is advanced and the life of a Christ follower is measured. // As the modern era transitions into postmodern turbulence, we too find ourselves in serious times. How can you make a difference in the world today? How can you be an influence for Christ? How can you live a life that matters? // There is a great movement of God that has been set loose in the world. In this book James Emery White explores what it means to be in the front lines of what God is doing. It's about action. But more than that it's about character and our connectedness with God.
