Embracing Obscurity

Full Product Description

No matter how famous someone might be, the fact remains; most of the other seven billion people on Earth wouldn’t know him or her from the next person. Add this reality to one’s shrinking recognizability among the multiple billions down through history, and the worldly emphasis on standing out really falls flat; we’re all in this obscurity thing together.

Ironically, the trouble with me and you and the rest of humanity is not a lack of self-confidence but that we have far too much self-importance. To live and die unnoticed would seem a grave injustice to many. It’s all too easy to think we’re somebody if our portfolio is strong, there are a few letters after our name, or we’re well-known at work, church, or school.

As pride creeps in, we are tempted to want more: more recognition, more admiration, more influence, more, more, more. Few have ever given thought to wanting less. That’s why we need Embracing Obscurity.

Putting the premise into immediate action, an established Christian author electing to remain anonymous writes about living and dying in simplicity, contending that true success, as modeled by Jesus, starts with humility, service, sacrifice, and surrender. Such a life involves mystery and banks on the hope that today is just a dress rehearsal for eternity.

When we stop imitating the world and instead choose to embrace obscurity, real life -- chock full of significance, purpose, and renewed passion -- begins.

Embracing Obscurity by Anonymous was published by Broadman and Holman in October 2012 and is our 31269th best seller. The ISBN for Embracing Obscurity is 9781433677816.

“... This book is an absolute treasure that should be on every Christian’s nightstand. Permanently.” – Vicki Courney, a fellow author who would have rather gone unnamed to embrace obscurity

“Embracing Obscurity is incredibly powerful as it reminds us to question whether we are building our own self-importance or finding it in Christ ...” – Jen Hatmaker, author of ‘7: An Experimental Mutiny Against Excess’

“... This book helped me marvel at the Christ who embraced obscurity for us. His humiliation led to our exaltation. When we understand that, how can we not say, ‘He must increase, but I must decrease!” – J.D. Greear, lead pastor, the Summit Church, author of ‘Gospel: Recovering the Power that Made Christianity Revolutionary’

“Embracing Obscrurity may change the way you view the authentic Christian life. It pierced my heart ...” – Daniel L. Akin, president of Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, author of ‘Ten Who Changed the World’
