Descrizione prodotto

Sinossi

In 2008, after seven years of preparation, Daniel Hochhalter permanently failed his PhD, leaving him with no hope of gaining the qualifications needed for his desired career. Then he lost his job. Devastated and in crisis, with no Plan B and no clue how to redeem his future, he looked to the twelve disciples and discovered that--despite their gaping faults and sins--God still loved them and used them to change the world.

With fresh warmth and wisdom, ample hope and humor, Losers Like Us skillfully intertwines Dan's own story with theirs to show how our worst mistakes and greatest failures bring us to a place of teachableness, egolessness, brokenness, and empathy--the very qualifications required to receive God's love and grace, and to manifest his kingdom on earth.

 

Daniel Hochhalter
lives with his wife and two wiener dogs in Portland, Oregon, where his only true credential is that the Lord loves him. Dan has a B.S. (Liberty University, Lynchburg, VA) and an M.Div. (George Fox Evangelical Seminary, Newberg, OR). He does not have a PhD.

5.0 su 5 stelle This is not a self-help book... 25 agosto 2014
Di bekabirt - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

Based on the description, you might think this is just a story of a man who experienced some failure in his life. Or, you might think it is simply a topical study on the twelve disciples, or a self-help book, and as a result you might be tempted to pass it over. However, I can assure you, Losers Like Us, is so much more than that. It is not a self-help book. It is not a book that engages you from a distance. Dan's story invites you to examine your own. And along the way, you will encounter Christ and begin to understand the way He loves us, sees us, and uses us, is beyond the spiffed up, polished up version we try to present to the rest of the world. It is a message that needs to be shared throughout the world. As someone who is often guilty of spinning my wheels to climb to the top of the heap or roster, it is refreshing and freeing to know that we all have a place alongside Mr. Hochhalter. It is well-written, honest, humorous, and thought provoking. A must read!!!

5.0 su 5 stelle Speaks To My Condition 17 novembre 2014
Di Jonathan Roberts - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Copertina flessibile Acquisto verificato
If you're looking for systematic theology and correct conclusions presented in perfectly polished prose, this book isn't for you. The author makes no pretense of being about those things. Instead, he strives to see other people and himself with God's eyes in a way that is curious, humble, graceful and full of unanswered questions. In that striving, he reveals himself as insecure, vulnerable and awkward, and makes observations that are widely speculative and often inconclusive. So it goes.

Should this matter to you? I don't know. Here's why it matters to me: I am at a time of life where I feel weak and stupid, condemned and ashamed. I have been forcefully rejected and cut off from my faith community, because of some of the ways I have failed, and I don't generally feel like trying to engage with christian community again. After reading this book, I am more interested in following Jesus and in drawing closer to God and to the church. For me, that is a triumph.

5.0 su 5 stelle This is God's Story, we're just secondary actors. 26 settembre 2014
Di Paul Garrett - Pubblicato su Amazon.com
Formato: Formato Kindle Acquisto verificato
The "problem of pain" is one of the most discussed problems that the World has with the Gospel. "Losers like Us" grapples with this problem and is able to turn it around in a wonderful way.

My favorite quote: "Remember, we are all part of a great story that is really about God, not us. He is the number one character (read: winner), and we are all secondary (read: losers)."

Remarkable, and I could so identify with his loss and feeling of inadequacy Not only did I not qualify for a doctorate I also lost my husband to prostate cancer. After taking early retirement my identity had plummeted to the lowest common denominator. No plan, no purpose, and no passion. Then I read Losers Like Us. It gave me hope. I could so relate. The writing is supurb. The message is on point, and the truth has never been more enlightening. This is a must read. I would encourage this book for all who have it together, for those who think they have it together, and for those who know they will never have it together. That God's grace is sufficient, necessary, and plentiful should be on every loosers/winners t-shirt. Thank you Daniel for being God's hands and feet. And, thank you Lord for allowing me to read and digest this book even in the midst of my pain. To God be the glory!

4.0 su 5 stelle A Book Everyone Should Read 23 agosto 2015
Di Kindle Customer - Pubblicato su Amazon.com

The Author has succeeded in one thing--writing a book. Furthermore, it is a book for everyone, not just Christians, but all losers.

In Chapter 1, the author writes "True, there is no Bible verse saying that if you are a loser, God loves you and prefers to work with you." Actually, there is such a Bible verse: "My Grace is sufficient for thee: for my strength is made perfect in weakness." 2 Corinthians, 12: 9

In his chapter on Judas Iscariot and in other parts of the book, he suggests Judas could be redeemed. Yet it says in the Bible, "wo unto that man by whom the Son of man is betrayed! it had been good for that man if he had not been born." Matthew 26: 24

In Chapter 12 the author writes "He ( Peter) betrays Jesus three times" Peter denies Jesus, not betrays. I do like the way the author describes Jesus as giving Peter a "do-over" when He asks Peter "do you love me?" John 21 ( vv. 15-17) three times. "And three times Jesus replies, 'Feed my sheep.'" (vv. 15-17)

In Chapter 13 the author writes: "Scripture is quiet about the boyhood and youth of Jesus . . . ." Yet Luke 2:42-48 describes Jesus at the age of twelve "in the midst of the doctors, both hearing them and asking them questions." (v.46) There is a big picture in the particular Bible I used depicting this. Otherwise, Chapter 13 is one of the best chapters in the book.

I really enjoyed this. That's why I had a lot to write. From reading this I believe the author should definitely continue his writing career.
