City on Our Knees by Toby Mac

76919782 When we step across the line we can sail across the sea

Amazing, beautiful things happen when people have the courage to live, work, and pray in the spirit of unity and peace. Often, though, to make these amazing things happen, we have to step out of our comfort zone and into a world we find uncomfortable or intimidating. Sometimes that world is physical; other times it can be emotional, relational, or spiritual.

City on Our Knees shows this, encouraging you to take the first step. It offers stories of people who have stepped across lines. Lines of discrimination, persecution, doubt, prejudice, pride, bitterness, self-isolation, and despair. I pray and hope that you will be inspired to see how just one person, or one small group, can be a mechanism for change. 

God can use us right here. Right now. All we need is faith that He has our best in mind. And believe me—He does.

Ashley’s 2 cents . . . I was really excited when Mom got this book in the mail, because I had no idea that she had ordered it to review. I picked it up right away and read 1/3 of the book in just a couple of hours. I really enjoyed the stories that were in the books, about stepping out and sharing the gospel of Christ. It kind-of reminded me of the books that he wrote Jesus Freaks and Jesus Freaks 2 with Michael Tait. The stories were awesome and I loved reading the book.

If you enjoy reading short stories about people who stand up for Christ, and need a good pick-me-up, read this book!
