Right Side Up

  • Paul Grimmond
  • 4 November 2013
"I set out to write a book for new Christians, to explain what it means to be a Christian and what the lifelong adventure of following Jesus is like. But I soon realized that what Jesus wants to say to a new Christian is really the same thing he wants to keep saying to the seasoned saint: "Whoever loses his life for my sake will find it". My prayer is that this book will persuade you of the truth of those words, and help you live like you believe them. It's a book for the brand new Christian that should challenge every believer—whether you've been following Jesus for five minutes or fifty years."
—Author, Paul Grimmond 

A stirring book for new and established Christians about what it means (and what it's like) to live the Christian life ... to live 'right side up'.
