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 life-changing power in putting God first and proclaiming, "I Am Second."

Review quote

"This collection of 20 real-life stories demonstrates lives radically changed by encounters with Jesus Christ from the growing "I am second" movement. Many stories, previously seen as video clips on the Web, are from famous personalities like Josh Hamilton and Brian "Head" Welch. Tommy Cresswell delivers the narratives in a pleasing baritone, capturing individual characters with unique tonal inflections, changes in pitch, and subtle accents. He matches voice to mood to capture the torment behind Michelle's story of obesity, which sent her "life spinning out of control." He perfectly renders Josh's story of exchanging his sports playbook for God's playbook, then Brian's story, which begins with a choice between heroin and a telephone conversation. Creswell's masterful portrayals reveal that belief in Jesus is all about relationship, never about religion." G.D.W. (c) AudioFile Portland, Maine
