Owen Strachan’s “Risky Gospel”

Owen Strachan has a new book out today that you need to check out. It’s titled Risky Gospel: Abandon Fear and Build Something Awesome. I just got my copy in the mail not long ago, and I am looking forward to reading it. Here are a few of the endorsements followed by the trailer from Thomas Nelson.

Russell Moore: “Some Christians are paralyzed by fear or indecision or constant second-guessing or by the blur of activity in their lives. In this book Owen Strachan points out what’s immobilizing you right now, and to give you the gospel coaching to run the race again. Read this book to stir up courage in yourself, or to equip you to do so for a brother or sister in need.”

Collin Hansen: “Here’s a book that would have done me a lot of good in my teens and twenties. But even a little later in life I’m grateful for how Owen impressed upon me the privilege of risking a life that’s secure in God. Read this book and embark on a life of ’empowered dependence’ and ‘winsome courage.'”

Greg Gilbert: “One of the worst–and most common–misunderstandings people have of Christianity is that it is a ‘religious decision’ that has no impact on the rest of life. In Risky Gospel, Owen Strachan takes that misunderstanding head-on, practically and biblically showing how the truths of Christianity impact every area of life, from family to church to the workplace. This is a book that will help you think more biblically and clearly about what it means to follow Jesus in all of life.”

Jonathan Leeman: “Could it be that the safest place in the world is in risking everything for the gospel? ‘Risky Christianity is Christianity,’ argues Strachan. And so he calls us to give what we cannot keep to gain what we cannot lose. Many popular books and leaders will lead you down a risky and wrong path. But Strachan offers a reliable and readable account of what it means to risk everything for the gospel in life’s major arenas. Please read, Christian, and learn to think and live well.”
