This powerful booklet, excerpted from All In tells us that the Gospel costs nothing, but demands everything. If Jesus is not Lord of all, He is not Lord at all. It's all or nothing. It's now or never. It's time to ante up and go all in with God.
No one has ever sacrificed anything for God. If you always get back more than you gave up, have you sacrificed anything at all? The eternal reward always outweighs the temporal sacrifice. At the end of the day, our greatest regret will be whatever we didnt give back to God. What we didnt push back across the table to Him. Eternity will reveal that holding out is losing out.
Batterson writes, For many years, I thought I was following Jesus. I wasnt. I had invited Jesus to follow me. I call it inverted Christianity. And its a subtle form of selfishness that masquerades as spirituality. Thats when I sold out and bought in. When did we start believing that the gospel is an insurance plan? Its a daring plan. Jesus did not die just to keep us safe. He died to make us dangerous.

john1 Stars Out Of 5All-in by Mark BattersonNovember 13, 2017johnQuality: 1Value: 1Meets Expectations: 1Had read the paperback (full version) before; didn't realize when placing order for this item (multiple copies for giveaways) that this is a VERY abbreviated version. The external cover looks exactly like the full version paperback, but contents are condensed excerpts, more like teasers than the full version. For customer ease..and to eliminate confusion...curious as to why they didn't print the cover in a different color or print? When called to return, was advised i would have to pay shipping (again) to return. Kept the copies and handed them out like tracts. Not planning to reorder anything from here anytime soon. Other sites provide a more positive response/solution to problems associated with questionable merchandise/marketing.

Mark Batterson is definitely one of my all time favorite authors. His writing challenges me to push for more, to not settle for what I'm already doing. His books always seem to find themselves in my hands at the most perfect times and minister to me in the ways I need to be ministered to.
If you have ever felt like your sacrifice is not so much what Jesus was asking from you, but it was your obedience, this book is for you. If you wonder how God asks for everything we have, yet promises to give us everything that He has, this book is for you. Be compelled to not just live your life but live it for the purpose it was given. As Batterson says, " Jesus didn't die just to keep us safe. he died to MAKE US DANGEROUS."
I received a copy of this book for free in exchange for a review from Booksneeze.
