Publisher's Description

Do you feel that your life is pleasing to God almost? When you hear about pastors, missionaries, and popular speakers, do you feel just a bit second-class, as if your life appears lukewarm and not as radical as theirs?

You're not alone. A vague sense of guilt is common in the church. We know God's grace is the key to eternal life, but it's so much more than that it's the key to a joy-filled walk with Him every moment. Josh Kelley shows why you don't have to give away everything you own to be a fully committed follower of Jesus Christ. He demonstrates that

  • God is crazy about you right where you are.
  • You are just as important as any other member of Christ's body.
  • The work you do every day can be pleasing to God.

Discover the joy of radical obedience to Christ in your normal, everyday life.

    Radically Normal

    By Josh Kelley

    You don't have to live crazy to follow Jesus...

    Do you ever feel that you're just not good enough to call yourself a Christian? Do you feel guilty when you attend church services because you aren't out on the mission field taking the Gospel to other countries? Did you grow-up with the understanding that only those who were out actively preaching and pointing out the sins of others the only true believers?

    Well, this isn't the message Jesus taught. Jesus reached out to the sinner, but He didn't do it from a position of power. He didn't try to draw attention to Himself - He even asked those He healed to speak not of this.

    Living life with a 9 - 5 job is not a sin in God's eyes. You can find joy in this life living the life God gave you. How you live a normal life can be a witness to those around you. You can get rid of the guilt and live with a hope to your future new life.

    I really enjoyed reading chapter 17 This Life Matters we are the temple of the Holy Spirit (God) and how we treat our bodies can be a sign of how we honor God. And our care for others, Christians or non-Christians, is an outward reflection of God's care for the least of these and our love for Him.

    Normal is good and not something to be ashamed of, so be Radical by being you!

    I was provided a copy of this book by the publisher though BookFun/TBCN in exchange for my honest review.

    Radically Normal is a book that can relate to anyone in any job. It is put in a way that anyone can understand. I felt it best read slowly to absorb it totally. The author shows that God does can about the small stuff and just desires obedience from us.

    I received the book from the Book Club Network in exchage for my honest opinion.

    "You don't have to live crazy to follow Jesus"

    Have you always believed or been told that the best way to serve God is to sell everything and become a missionary or a Mother Theresa?

    Just as everyone in life is different, so are the many ways we can serve God. Josh Kelly shows us how we can serve through our normal ever day life in his new book Radically Normal. With his training as a Pastor, his work at Starbucks and his everyday life, Josh writes to show us that our station in life is just as important to God as the missionaries are.

    "Spiritual health isn't found in obsessively trying to do it all but gratefully playing the part he has given us."

    I have often wondered about many of the things covered in this book. I felt as though Josh Kelly knew all the questions I have had about God, religion, and the life I should be leading and he answered them all. By studying incidents of life (big and small) that have come his way, Josh shows us there are lessons to be learned from all situations in life.

    Josh cover many aspects of the life God wants for us joy, money, prosperity, giving, understanding and more. And it can all be done by being Radically Normal.

    I enjoyed reading this book. It helped me feel like I had been doing many things right already. Now I still have a lot of things to work on, but this book makes me feel that I have been on the right track. I highly recommend this book for everyone to read.

    I did receive a copy of this book in exchange for my honest review.

    As a Pastor I often read for 2 reasons. One for my own self growth and two to give me viewpoints, ideas, and tools that will help with those that I have conversations with including sometimes suggesting or buying a book for them.

    I read quite a bit and often am challenged by the books I read. I found Josh Kelley's book to be very balanced. His purpose behind much of what he writes is derived from seeking the Father's heart and with the goal of joy in mind. I mentioned I am often challenged by what I read. I am challenged to be more obsessive in my Christianity when reading authors like Francis Chan, David Platt, etc.. and I tend to lean more heavily on grace when reading Brennan Manning, Philip Yancey, etc. I thought this book had a good balance as to not make the reader lean too far either way, but rather to find joy in the journey of the spiritual disciplines.

    I also enjoyed the notes Josh wrote at the end of the book. Once I realized he did not just have book references- whenever I saw a number I flipped to the back to see what he had said.

    I already plan to buy a few more copies of this book to give away this year.

    Review Title: Radically Following the Straight Path to Joy in the Lord

    (a review of Radically Normal by Josh Kelley)

    Reviewer: Janice S. Garey

    *****5 Stars

    Radically Normal has a message that all Christians need to be concerned with. We try to live by Christ's words and not be judgemental of others, but so often we fail. We fall into comparison and judge who is most Christianly and who falls short. We often do this by looking at ourselves as the divining rod to find the living water in one person and the polluted water in another person. Josh Kelley makes us take a look at where we are, where he has been, and where we need to go to have an accurate view of ourselves and others according to the vision of Christ who is the only one who can correctly judge. Josh wants to see Christians find the straight and narrow path of joy which does not veer to the right to legalism or to the left to liberalism.

    I really enjoyed reading one particular part of the book about the "Consequence Inverter." His thought is if we were actually able to live through the consequences of choosing sin before having the short-lived "enjoyment" of the sin then that would innoculate the world from a lot of committed sins. Important thought!

    I received this book from bookfun.org in exchange for my honest review. I believe this book will be a benefit to both long time Christians as well as those new to the faith.
