Publisher's Description

With boldness and cutting-edge insight, David Edwards turns the light on false perceptions of religion and gets down to the truth about the "cosmic" battle between light and dark. Hitting head-on the disconnect that exists in "Sunday faith" and the rest of the week, Edwards defines character as "the life of God living in us."

Publisher's Weekly

Warning: This book is written for postmodern Christians by a bona fide Gen-Xer... and that's a good thing. Edwards's message is simple: cut the baloney and light up your life with the presence of the indwelling God. The popular Bible teacher's bold message will resonate with young adults who want straightforward insights in an increasingly confusing and chaotic world. Edwards offers 13 ways to ignite faith seven days a week and shows how to develop real character rather than just "Sunday religion." Character, he says, "is nothing less than the life of God living in us in the midst of our everyday encounters with a dark world" what he terms "the lit life." It's the character of Christ lived out in daily business transactions and honest relationships. The enemy is darkness, better known as Satan the leader of the "Cosmic Mafia." Edwards's characterization of today's world as a battle between light and darkness may sound simplistic to some. However, his arguments are compelling and passionate, his solutions enthusiastic and sometimes humorous, and his theology solid. Each chapter ends with a "Spotlight" exercise to help young people translate ideas into practical applications, and the book concludes with a study guide for both groups and individuals. Baby boomers might find Edwards's humor a little too sarcastic at times, but others will find it refreshing in its honesty. But then, this is a book written for young adults (18-35), not grandparents. (Jan.) Copyright 2001 Cahners Business Information.

    This is a practical & honest approach to the truth of what our life should be about. It does not give "steps" to overcoming problems so you can live for Christ. It tells you what you should be, then being a light becomes natural. God gives some people the ability to relate His truths succintly and that is what David Edwards has. This book helps me to understand what it means to be a light in this dark world and to understand how much this world needs that light.

Author/Artist Review

Author: David Edwards
Located in: Oklahoma City, Oklahoma
Submitted: February 25, 2002

    Tell us a little about yourself.  I am an itenerant post-modern pastor. I pasture a generation in two cities, Memphis and Oklahoma City. Teaching a city wide Bible study in each city reaching over 2,000 young adults each week. I travel twenty-six days a month speaking to college and post-moderns. I have been traveling and teaching for twelve years. I am the founding speaker for the Houston Metro as well as six other "Metro Bible Study Groups" around the country. My Mission is to reintroduce this generation to the truth of God's word by meeting people where they are in life and bringing them one step closer in the process of knowing and becoming like Jesus.

    What was your motivation behind this project?  My mission statement tells it all. I want to be an influence in the lives of this generation to bring character back into the world. This book is about character. The subtitle is "living Christ's character from the inside out."

    What do you hope folks will gain from this project?  I hope they will become more like Jesus each day and be able to live His character. I want to integrate Christlike character throughout every facet of their lives, in effect living life inside out.

    Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists?  I try to read every new christian book that comes out each month. I can learn from each author and in turn will be able to influence this postmodern generation.

    Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know:  This book is not only a great read, but has a leader's guide in the back and is an excellent small group study book. It also has a Spotlight section at the end of each chapter to help you apply what you have learned.
