Get Off Your Donkey!

Full Product Description

In Jesus’ parable of the Good Samaritan, the hero of the story - with suspect spiritual credentials for his religion obsessed audience - is the only person who reflects God’s heart for the person in need. The moral of the story is that you have to get off your donkey to help somebody.

In his book with the same provocaticve title, Reggie McNeal argues that it’s time for all of us to get up off whatever we’re sitting on and help somebody! “This book is a call to action,” he says. “Maybe you can’t change the world, but you can change your street. Writing for anyone and everyone who wants to stem the darkness, the author knows that most of his readers will be church people. So he gives this blunt warning: the book is aimed at that brand of unbiblical church-ianity that has resulted in
a church-centric religion which fails to reflect the heart of God for people.

Get Off Your Donkey! by Reggie McNeal was published by Baker in March 2013 and is our 28202nd best seller. The ISBN for Get Off Your Donkey! is 9780801014970.

Publisher's Description

You’ve been sitting on your donkey long enough!

In one of his most famous parables, Jesus points us to a man who gets down off his donkey and helps someone in dire need. Now, with energy and enthusiasm,
Reggie McNeal calls you to dismount, get messy, and live a life that makes a real difference. He reveals two mutually reinforcing truths: First, helping others is often the best path for our own personal development.

And second, as you become more the person you were designed to be, you increase your capacity to serve others. It all starts with a decision to get off your donkey-today!
