Fresh, unexpected exploration of the early church and its lessons for today from one of the most beloved voices in inspirational fiction.
n the first century, believer didn't just mean someone who heard and agreed with Jesus; it meant someone who acted on that belief. And when the outside world saw the faith of these new believers, they declared "they turned the world upside down" (Acts 17:6).
That's the kind of believer New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin wants to be. The kind, as Martin explored in his first nonfiction book, What If It's True?, who understands that the truth of Jesus' life, death, and resurrection is so powerful, it reshaped history. The kind of believer who lives with that same world-changing faith today.
They Turned the World Upside Down focuses on the lives of those who lived and walked with Jesus and believed in his message. In his beloved lyrical style, Martin illuminates key moments from Scripture and shares stories from his own life as a disciple. With the same depth, sensitivity, and emotion that have made his novels beloved to millions, Martin helps us engage the fundamental principles of our faith in new and inspiring ways.
