Publisher's Description

What is the “Christian life” all about? Studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, witnessing to others—those are all good. But is that really what Jesus has in mind? The answer, says Scot McKnight in One.Life, lies in Jesus’ words, “Follow me.” What does it look like to follow Jesus, and how will doing so change the way we live our life—our love.life, our justice.life, our peace.life, our community.life, our sex.life—everything about our life. One.Life will open your eyes to the full, compelling immensity of what it means to be a Christian. “Jesus offers to us a kingdom dream that transforms us to the very core of our being,” says Scot McKnight. “His vision is so big we are called to give our entire life to it. His vision is so big it swallows up our dreams.” Discover exactly what Jesus meant when he announced the arrival of God’s kingdom. Equipping you with a new understanding of that kingdom’s radical nature, One.Life shares profound, challenging, and practical insights on how to demonstrate its reality in your life. In many ways, what The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer challenged Christians to do in earlier generations, One.Life will do for a new generation. One.Life will call you beyond the flatlands of religiosity toward a kingdom vision that will shape everything you do.

Author Bio

Professor Scot McKnight, noted blogger and author of The Jesus Creed, examines the Christian life from its very basis in One.Life. He carefully and methodically probes the standard answers given to the question "What is a Christian?", and then shows how Jesus understood what it meant to be His follower. In fact, McKnight states that the answer is not a simple one, though it can be stated simply: "follow Me."

Step by step, McKnight builds a working definition of a Christian. Each piece of the definition is carefully stated, referenced, and supported. To give the full definition would be a bit overwhelming; McKnight does his audience a huge favor by introducing his answer piece by piece.

Taking clues from the Old Testament, Jewish history, and first-century culture, the modern understanding of the term "kingdom" is shown to be grossly inadequate. McKnight carefully constructs his definition to remain faithful to the words and intentions of Jesus. The reader comes away with a fuller understanding of what it means to not only know Jesus, but how He intends to be followed.

The reader is then challenged to be a follower of Christ in every area of life. From work to family to love to society, McKnight demonstrates that the true follower of Christ will be totally transformed from the rest of the world.

The term One.Life is not really fleshed out in any specific place, but the book gives plenty of room for the definition to flourish. The One.Life that McKnight refers to is a life that is totally unified and devoted to Christ. The believer in and follower of Christ should devote their One.Life to developing that relationship. An interesting title becomes a catchy phrase that ties the book together nicely.

This book would be very helpful for not only the new believer, but also to the seasoned saint looking for a review of their faith. – Pastor Charles Eldred, www.ChristianBookPreviews.com

Publisher's Weekly

In his latest book, McKnight, a professor of religious studies at North Park University in Chicago and the author of the acclaimed Jesus Creed, argues against the Christianity he was taught in his youth, an interpretation he finds overly fixated on the personal piety of believers rather than their influence in society. He contends instead that Jesus called believers to action and to the establishment of a world of justice, compassion, and peace. This scriptural reading is hardly new, but McKnight’s writing makes it fresh and engaging. His frequent pop culture references serve to draw in younger readers; other stylistic choices, such as unusual punctuation and line breaks, can distract from his message instead of creating a contemporary feel. Dividing the book into chapters addressing different aspects of a believer’s life, such as “church.life” and “sex.life,” McKnight combines knowledgeable scriptural exegesis with anecdotes drawn from his own life and his experiences with college students to provide insight into Jesus’ life and message. This results in a highly readable work that can serve as an excellent introduction to Jesus and his teachings for a new generation. (Jan.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

    Scot McKnight is an American New Testament scholar, historian of early Christianity, theologian, speaker, author and blogger who has written widely on the historical Jesus, early Christianity, the emerging church and missional church movements, spiritual formation and Christian living. He is currently the Karl A. Olsson Professor in Religious Studies at North Park University.

    Among my favorite books he has written, The King Jesus Gospel, The Blue Parakeet, and The Jesus Creed to name a few.

    His most recent book; One Life, Jesus Calls, We Follow is a Christian primer that seeks to answer the question; What is the ‘Christian life' all about?

    Is it studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, or witnessing to others? I mean, those are all good, but is that really what Jesus has in mind?

    McKnight would argue that the Christian life boils down to two words; ‘Follow me.' But McKnight doesn't just stop there, he takes Jesus' great command and applies it to all manner of life, it could be your job, your ministry, your family, social justice and even your sex life. I mean, we all "think" we know what it means to follow Jesus, but more importantly_ what did Jesus think it meant?

    Bear in mind that this book is a primer, an over view if you will and I would argue that Scott's target audience is perhaps his students that he sees each day. The book reads like something you would hear in a college bible study. But don't mistake that for being a simple or easy read - Scott is still a professor and he writes like one, but if you have a few of these "what is the Christian life all about" books already - you might find this to be similar.

    However, if you don't own those types of books, or you are looking for one - I would argue that this is one of the best. Well worth the read. Read this book to discover what it means to embrace the vision of God's Kingdom in a way that awakens your passions and shapes your entire life.

    Thank you to Zondervan for providing me with a review copy and allowing me to share my thoughts.

    This book is refreshing in its perspective of the Kingdom of God. It helps us balance our Christian life from an individualistic perspective to a more societal and community-based one. But we must not swing to that other end so much so that we diminish the personal part of faith before God. That is also a valid aspect of our faith. But certainly a good read!
