I Am Second: The Book Review

One white chair

underneath

one overhanging lamp

illuminating

the one endlessness of the darkness.

 

And one by one people come out of the shadows,

take the seat,

and tell their story.

 

Stay at home moms and prostitutes.

Musicians and politicians.

Celebrities and “nobodies.”

Athletes and intellectuals.

High school students and senior citizens.

Victims and victimizers.

Everyone from all walks of life gets a voice and though each story may be different there’s one thing that binds them all together – The belief that,

“I

am

second.”

 

A collection of short films that led to a movement that is now connecting churches and touching people everywhere, I Am Second is based on the simple concept of telling the story of how Jesus changed your life. And when you think about it, what could be more powerful than that?

This book is a by-product of this project, a collection of the stories of everyday people like you and me and it is another resounding proof of the power of God impacting this well represented cross section of our society, because no one is excepted from this chance for soul transformation.

They’re stories about the power of God in you and in me.

Stories about how when we are willing to step down to second place in your own life

Stories of how liberating and empowering it is to let Him be

FIRST.
