The first book from influential pastor and longtime writer for Desiring God, Jonathan Parnell, Never Settle for Normal, is a fresh presentation of God's redemption plan for humanity and the truth that all generations learn: Our hearts are restless until they can find rest in God.
Never Settle for Normal retraces the ever-fascinating story of God's redemption plan for humanity in non-intrusive language and a tone that will appeal, in particular, to millennial readers--both inside and outside the faith community. The essential question the book seeks to answer is what does Christian faith provide
in finding authentic meaning and happiness in life? Retelling the greatest story ever--persuasively with new freshness by using abundant popular cultural references tied to biblical truth, the author creatively discusses the key tenets of Christian faith--creation, fall, redemption, new creation--from the perspectives of both mind and heart.
The book reveals how the Christian experience, condescending in the believer's union with Christ, answers the universal human desire for glory and gladness.
