They Turned the World Upside Down: A Storyteller's Journey with Those Who Dared to Follow Jesus (Paperback)
Now available in trade paper Walk in the shoes of the disciples, as New York Times bestselling author Charles Martin brings their stories to life with his storyteller's perspective.
In 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 Charles Martin wants us to be. The kind 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.
In his second non-fiction work, he uses his talents as a novelist to walk you through the lives of the disciples in the aftermath of the Resurrection and as they spread the message of the Gospel and "turn the world upside down", leading up to Paul's ministry in Thessonalica. 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 will help you engage with your faith in a new and inspiring way.
