Downward mobility: that means hand-outs, self-sacrifice, cutting back, putting others first---not exactly laudable behavior in our upscale, up-and-coming, upwardly mobile society. But for Christians following a Lord who humbled himself, downward mobility means fulfillment. Discussing servanthood, humility, power management, the human will, dying to self, and joy, Hybels and Wilkins show how you can descend into a greatness that effectively advances the Kingdom of God. 288 pages, softcover from Zondervan.

Learning to put God's kingdom first by choosing to put self second is the secret to finding true satisfaction. This book examines how that is possible by looking at various real-world situations.
