Synopses & Reviews
We've all had "aha!" moments in our lives, times when a sudden revelation surprises us with insight. According to pastor and bestselling author Kyle Idleman, we can experience this same kind of "aha!" in our spiritual lives. With everyday examples and trademark testimonies, Idleman draws on Scripture to reveal how three key elements can draw us closer to God and change our lives for good.
Awakening to the reality of our true spiritual condition, we see ourselves and our need for a Savior with renewed honesty. This realization leads to action, obeying God's commands and following the example set by Christ. As we see in the transformation of the prodigal son, the result is a life-changing, destiny-altering collision—an AHA moment that leads us home to our loving Father.

"In his newest work, Idleman ... dissects the Beatitudes, guiding Christians toward the oblique realities that underlie many of Christ's maxims. Brokenness is indeed the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and utter emptiness has to come before true fullness can be recognized and grasped. In two parts, Idleman lays out in detail how walking with Jesus to the end of oneself is the beginning, middle, and end of finding the real life of abundance as described in the Beatitudes. Ideman's wit and contagious humor alone make this a page-turner."
"A wise, mature person is known for his understanding. The more pleasant his words, the more persuasive he is. Kyle Idleman is one of today's great young teachers. He's a brilliant, compassionate, and thoughtful communicator who presents the truth of Scripture in a fresh, relevant, and persuasive way."

The path to wholeness begins with brokenness. The way to blessing starts with mourning. And the journey to strength is through weakness. The End of Me is a revolutionary book that invites you to find the end of yourself because only then can you can embrace the inside-out ways of Jesus.
Are you sometimes perplexed with Jesus’s teaching? Do you really want what he wants? Bestselling author Kyle Idleman reveals that the key to the abundant life Jesus promised lies in embracing His inside-out way of life.
As he examines Jesus’s Sermon on the Mount, Kyle unpacks the many counter-intuitive truths, including: brokenness is the way to wholeness, mourning is the path to blessing, and emptiness is required in order to know true fullness. Ultimately you will discover how Jesus transforms you as you begin to live out these paradoxical principles. Because only when you come to the end of yourself can you begin to experience the full, blessed, and whole life Jesus offers.
