Rick Warren famously wrote, It's not about you. But much of the Western church seems to disagree, having settled for a self-centered message of personal fulfillment. With incisiveness and a passionate love for the church, pastor and author Byron Forrest Yawn offers a compelling call away from narcissism and back to the powerful and transforming gospel of Jesus. He shows the difference between

  • Sunday-morning life coaches selling self-help seminars, and preachers proclaiming God's redemptive work through Christ
  • promises of prosperity and comfort, and a realistic and helpful perspective on suffering
  • escape from unbelievers and their godless world, and redemptive engagement with people

As Byron exposes the false gospel of suburbianity, he offers readers a better alternative: to look beyond themselves and embrace God's call to be His image-bearers and ambassadors, partnering with Him as He restores people and all creation to His original design.
