Not In It to Win It, by Andy Stanley
- Author: Andy Stanley
Can you disagree politically while loving unconditionally? The reaction of evangelicals in light of political and cultural shifts in recent years has shown what they value most. Hiding behind Bible-laced rhetoric, faith claims, books, and sermons is a relentless drive to WIN!
Yet, the church isn't here to win. Judging merely by every human measure, our Savior lost, on purpose, with a purpose. If we are His body, we can't be in it to win anything. We are in it for something else entirely. That something else is what this book is all about.
- How to take a stand the right way. You'll learn how to make your case with a posture of humility and understanding, rather than being fueled by the fear of losing something.
- How to view politics through the lens of faith. Learn curiously, listen intentionally, and love unconditionally.
- How the life of Jesus and his teaching applies to modern-day challenges in a fresh way. The biblical stand may not be what we've been taught.
Jesus didn't ask His followers to agree about everything. He did call us to obey a new command: to love others in the same way He has loved us. Instead of asserting our rights or fighting for power, we must ask: what does love require of me?
