Your Faith Isn't Meant to Be Safe
by Vince Antonucci
Pub Date 01 Mar 2013
How does one live for God? Really live for God, in a way that provides both intimacy with him and yet adventure in this world? And how does one live for God in a culture that gives him a nod and a wink, but truly worships everything but him? And most importantly, what impact could a life, truly on fire for God, have on this world?
Through an insightful and penetrating look at scriptural examples, Renegade challenges readers to live radical lives for God in a culture diametrically opposed to him. Author Vince Antonucci encourages readers to reconsider what it means to live for God, teaches them how to cultivate a real relationship with him, and then equips them to discover their unique calling. For all those times we feel like we're running on empty, Antonucci provides encouragement and inspiration for readers to live out a risky, renegade faith.

"The message of Renegade will teach you, entertain you, inspire you, challenge you, and convict you. . . .

"If you are tired of a play-it-safe, go-through-the-motions faith, then Renegade is exactly what you need. Authored by a guy who is a serial risk-taker, this book will have you laughing while at the same time discovering that faith was always meant to be a daring adventure! Renegade is a book for all of us who want a faith that is more than knowing what Jesus would do, but rather doing what he would do!"--Dave Ferguson, pastor of Community Christian Church and coauthor of Exponential
