Product description

Countless stories. One incredible ending. A major league baseball player. a Tennessee pastor. A reality TV star. a single mom. A multi-platinum rocker. What do these people have in common? They've all hit bottom. And none of them stayed there. Famous or unfamiliar, these are the stories of real people who reached the end of their strength, the end of their control, and found the most surprising truths. It taught them not to rely on self or substance but to lean on the only completely reliable source of love, hope, and freedom: the God who created them. Shocking in their honesty, inspiring in their courage, these testimonies are critical reminders that no one is too far from God to find him. Join these and thousands more who have discovered the lifechanging power in putting God first and proclaiming, "I am Second."

Customer reviews

By Olugbenga Emmanuel Omogbeja 09 Jan 2012 4

From the Hard Rocker, to the frustrated tattoo-inked dude. The much-loved Christian Musician. To even Business Owners and other world renowned personalities. Invariably, I am second is a movement of believers who remember how very "pochissimo" man is, in the light of a Loving and Graceful God.
I AM SECOND shares the stark reality of the hopeless situations and depths these fellas have had to plunge before coming to terms with the futility of their incorrigible natures trusting in themselves, as opposed to staying put under God's Sovereign guiding Arms in cruise control.

It is a book that'd resonate with our personal flaws. The true life stories of others will Call a spade a spade for us, where it matters even if we'd wish to remain disconnected from the reality.
