   schema:description "Radical. Crazy. Transformative and restless. Every word we read these days seems to suggest thereâ#x80;#x99;s a â#x80;#x9C;next-best-thing, â#x80;#x9D; if only we would change our comfortable, compromising lives. In fact, the greatest fear most Christians have is boredomâ#x80;#x94;the sense that they are missing out on the radical life Jesus promised. One thing is certain. No one wants to be â#x80;#x9C;ordinary.â#x80;#x9D; Yet pastor and author Michael Horton believes that our attempts to measure our spiritual growth by our experiences, constantly seeking after the next big breakthrough, have left many Christians disillusioned and disappointed. Thereâ#x80;#x99;s nothing wrong with an energetic faith; the danger is that we can burn ourselves out on restless anxieties and unrealistic expectations. Whatâ#x80;#x99;s needed is not another program or a fresh approach to spiritual growth; itâ#x80;#x99;s a renewed appreciation for the commonplace. Far from a call to low expectations and passivity, Horton invites readers to recover their sense of joy in the ordinary. He provides a guide to a sustainable discipleship that happens over the long haulâ#x80;#x94;not a quick fix that leaves readers empty with unfulfilled promises. Convicting and ultimately empowering, Ordinary is not a call to do less; itâ#x80;#x99;s an invitation to experience the elusive joy of the ordinary Christian life."@en ;
