It's time to wake up

Most of us say we want to walk closer with God, but when you examine our lives that desire isn’t very evident. Why don’t we consistently live how we say we want to live? In this book, Michael Blue offers a gentle wake-up call for Christians living in the affluent West. He calls us to examine the call of Jesus and the barriers to walking closely with Him. He exhorts us to take seriously the call of Jesus and to order our lives in such a way that draws us nearer to our Savior and presents a compelling witness to our watching neighbors. Will you join us in examining the actual call of Jesus and see clearly the choice He presents?

Will you say yes to Jesus's call to total surrender?

“The better I know Michael Blue, the more I appreciate how much thought he’s given to what it means to follow Jesus. Michael is insightful, honest, and sensitive to Christ and His kingdom priorities. In Free to Follow, he gives a Christ-centered wake-up call that can help you lose your life, and in the process, find it.”

“Free to Follow is an outstanding book!  Michael Blue makes a compelling case for followers of Christ to surrender to Him and whole heartedly serve the Savior. It is extraordinarily well written. This book will challenge you, convict you, and convince you that the path where you will discover ultimate joy and freedom is on the narrow road following Christ. I heartily recommend it!”

“The way of Jesus is hard to locate in modern times. It’s even harder to navigate, so few attempt it. With remarkable clarity and biblical wisdom, Michael Blue points the way to life and unimaginable freedom and peace.”

Jesus calls us to lay down our lives, pick up our crosses, and follow Him. He tells us that His way is narrow and few find it. While His call feels weighty and difficult, it is only when we obey it that we become free to follow Jesus.

This book is a call to take Jesus’s words to lay down our lives seriously. To surrender everything to Him and start following in his way. It takes a serious look at what the Bible says about following Jesus when it comes to money and possessions and challenges us to radically rethink the way we view and use money.

Ultimately, this book is a call to hunger after God and rid ourselves of any baggage that prevents that pursuit. It is a call to live fully surrendered lives following the example of Jesus and his earliest followers. It is a call to freedom and joy.
