Most people have heard that following Christ ought to be life changing. But even Christians know that life often feels too hard, even purposeless, and God seems like a distant observer. In a style that is part bum/part intellectual, and with hard-hitting humor, Dr. David McDonald reintroduces Jesus Christ, the Incarnation, in "Down to Earth: Why We're Really Here and Why It Matters." The Incarnation is not just doctrine or an intellectual exercise. It is earthy and it raises the train wreck of humanity to its full dignity and potential. Re-encounter Christ and see how he validates "every minute detail" of your life, and how it will change because of him. Since "Down to Earth" is a unique presentation of the person and purpose of Jesus, it is a great gift at Christmas and Easter; but it is also good any time for those wanting deeper spiritual formation and more complete life transformation.
