What is the "Christian life" all about? Studying the Bible, attending church, cultivating a prayer life, witnessing to others - those are all good. But is that really what Jesus has in mind? The answer, says Scot McKnight in One.Life, lies in Jesus' words, "Follow me." What does it look like to follow Jesus, and how will doing so change the way we live our life - our love.life, our justice.life, our peace.life, our community.life, our sex.life - everything about our life. One.Life will open your eyes to the full, compelling immensity of what it means to be a Christian. "Jesus offers to us a kingdom dream that transforms us to the very core of our being," says Scot McKnight. "His vision is so big we are called to give our entire life to it. His vision is so big it swallows up our dreams." Discover exactly what Jesus meant when he announced the arrival of God's kingdom. Equipping you with a new understanding of that kingdom's radical nature, One.Life shares profound, challenging, and practical insights on how to demonstrate its reality in your life. In many ways, what The Cost of Discipleship by Bonhoeffer challenged Christians to do in earlier generations, One.Life will do for a new generation. One.Life will call you beyond the flatlands of religiosity toward a kingdom vision that will shape everything you do.… (mere)

This book targeted towards a general Christian audience will help us live our life to conform to the Gospel and in light of the Cross. His exposition of passages and stories from the Bible is also interspersed with experiences of how he and others have live the Gospel out. I found this book easy to read, and addressed many important topics, including: Social Justice, Peace, Sex, God's Kingdom, and Vocation among others. ( )

I can't think of a better refresher for North American Christians, on the eve of the new year, than McKnight's latest offering: One.Life.

He begins by shooting down the sub-par version of Christianity that's so prevalent in Western evangelicalism: that being a Christian means accepting Jesus and engaging in private acts of piety to separate yourself from the world. Being a Christian includes that, to be sure—but it's much, much more. For McKnight, being a Christian is far more simple and engaging:

"A Christian is someone who follows Jesus."

The rest of the book examines what it means to follow Jesus in every area of the one life we have to live. He tackles big issues like Justice, Peace, and Sex. No area of our one life is exempt from Jesus' call to follow him.

His chapter on eternity is particularly interesting. After making it clear that he believes in heaven and hell (because Jesus did), he draws a sharp contrast between the Dante-styled version of hell made popular in the middle ages and the Biblical images of decay, fire, and darkness. While avoiding dogmatism in the details, he slipped in an interesting endnote about Gregory MacDonald's work on evangelical universalism. While I found his honesty refreshing, I'm pretty sure he'll come under fire for this!

My only qualm was his tendency to use gimmicks. The book is sprinkled with terms like "One.Life" and "Kingdom.Life". He also regularly broke the prose up with strings of bulletless sentences to make his point. This evokes the feel of a preacher pausing after an important point. While I'm sure some will enjoy it, I found it mildly distracting.

If you're frustrated with the lack of passion in your Christian life and are looking for a good motivational jolt, give One.Life a try.
