You are loved more than you can imagine and sent with more purpose than you thought. I’ve come to know who I am in two words. They guide everything that I believe, think, and do.
I am loved by God in Jesus. I am sent by God into the world.
-from the author
So many people are starving for identity and meaning today. Loved and Sent describes how God took extraordinary action to address those two fundamental human needs. The author walks through his own quest for identity and meaning, revisiting core Christian convictions in a narrative style and making sense of why they matter today. As Christians, we often stutter when someone asks, “Who are you? What do you believe? Why does it matter to you?” We get a unique chance to share our heart, and we say too much—or nothing at all. Discover in this thought-provoking book who you are and why you matter, and then you’ll have something of greater value to share with someone else.
