Story Behind the Book
Andy Stanley is the senior pastor of three North Point Ministries campuses, with a cumulative congregation of more than twenty thousand. Much of the brokenness he sees in the lives of his congregants results from the herd mentality that makes them feel completely blah. He often hears comments like, "Life is just more of the same, only with more candles on my birthday cake," and, "Even my problems are the same as everyone else's--from dealing with debt to my marital problems. There's nothing unique about me." Culture has shaped and molded the zest out of life, and this DVD and study guide are designed to open the door to freedom.
