The problem is that most of us end up feeling disillusioned, burnt out by restless anxieties and unrealistic expectations. We need a renewed appreciation for the commonplace ways in which God works---often, in those mundane moments that are unplanned, unprogrammed, and unplugged.
By Learning to embrace the ordinary, you will find contentment and a sustainable faith in the hidden and humble places.

Life happens in the ordinary, not the radical. Discover a sustainable faith in a world that calls you to the next best thing.
Radical. Crazy. Transformative and restless. Every word we read these days seems to suggest theres a next-best-thing, if only we would change our comfortable, compromising lives. In fact, the greatest fear most Christians have is boredomthe sense that they are missing out on the radical life Jesus promised. One thing is certain. No one wants to be ordinary.
Yet pastor and author Michael Horton believes that our attempts to measure our spiritual growth by our experiences, constantly seeking after the next big breakthrough, have left many Christians disillusioned and disappointed. Theres nothing wrong with an energetic faith; the danger is that we can burn ourselves out on restless anxieties and unrealistic expectations. Whats needed is not another program or a fresh approach to spiritual growth; its a renewed appreciation for the commonplace.
Far from a call to low expectations and passivity, Horton invites readers to recover their sense of joy in the ordinary. He provides a guide to a sustainable discipleship that happens over the long haulnot a quick fix that leaves readers empty with unfulfilled promises. Convicting and ultimately empowering, Ordinary is not a call to do less; its an invitation to experience the elusive joy of the ordinary Christian life.
