Wrecked: Awesome Brag

Wrecked: Awesome Brag

August 10, 2012 by

Wrecked: When a Broken World Slams Into Your Comfortable Life is the latest book from Jeff Goins. We don’t normally just plug books (we usually review them), but this seems like a special case. It’s a special case because the book looks awesome and it allows us to brag just a bit.

The book looks awesome for two reasons:

One: It’s relevant for us church communicators. Now, full disclosure: I haven’t read the book (yet). I don’t know if it talks directly to folks in the local church (I doubt it), but I think it will resonate:

“Author Jeff Goins shares his own experience of struggling as a missionary and 20-something who understands the call to live radically while dealing with the everyday responsibilities of life. Wrecked is a manifesto for a generation dissatisfied with the status quo and wanting to make a difference.”

If that’s not a rallying cry for church communicators, I don’t know what is. And if a publisher’s blurb doesn’t do it for you, how about a recommendation from our good friend Scott McClellan of Echo Hub:

“In a world that teaches us to spend our lives building hollow monuments to our comfort and success, the message of Wrecked rings true: we must allow our monuments to be knocked down in order to make way for something that will endure. Wrecked is a guide down a beautiful, broken road, and I’m grateful for it.”

Two: It’s cheap. Until tomorrow (Aug. 11) you can grab the digital version for 99 cents. Jeff is trying to dethrone 50 Shades of Grey (not there yet), so he’s offering a great deal. And if you like the real deal, you can get the paperback version for only $8.43 (not sure how long that deal will last).

And we can brag:
Jeff Goins is one of our guest bloggers. He’s written a few posts over the years, including last week’s church communication hero piece profiling G.K. Chesterton. It’s awesome seeing a book by one of our own climb the charts like Wrecked is. We can be cool by association.
