How do you access a real, thriving, vibrant faith?
We trust a big God, so lets's start living like he's real. It's time to put our comfort and ease and false security on the line. If we know God is real, let's pray as if he's actually listening. If we know he's good, let's reflect that goodness in the world. When our problems feel big, let's lean on the One who is bigger. Is that risky? “Sure,” says Owen Strachan. “Embrace it anyway. It's the only way to live.”
Includes a Foreword by Kyle Idleman

“There’s a rumbling, thunderous joy rolling through the pages of Risky Gospel. Owen candidly describes how the Christian life is to be one of boldness, conviction, and intentionality. The kind of zeal he’s talking about isn’t haphazard and reactionary, but it flows from living in light of the joy-inciting gospel of Jesus Christ. What a timely message for the Church around the world!”
Gloria Furman, author, Glimpses of Grace
“I love this book. I love this book because it calls you to risk and do things that matter. I love this book because it calls you to risk with the strength available in Christ. And I love this book because it not only tells you what to accomplish and how, but it actually gets you excited about doing it. I’m excited about sharing this book with those in my ministry. You should be too.”
- Heath Lambert, Executive Director, NANC; Associate Professor of Biblical Counseling at SBTS/Boyce College
“Risky Gospel is filled with biblical truth, saturated with wisdom, and targeted right at the heart of weak, indecisive, emotionalist, inactive spirituality—and at every false gospel. This book would serve as a great Christmas gift for young Christians, and it is well-timed for the challenges all Christians now face in our risky world.”
