Synopsis

You Matter More Than You Realize


If you're looking for a life of meaning, take hope. God wants to use you in his surprising plan to change the world. Who would have guessed that Jesus would conquer evil not through force or victory, but through defeat? He makes the weak strong, the foolish wise, and the insignificant matter.

Author and pastor Chris Travis shares powerful, soul-stirring true stories--including his own gritty experiences teaching in one of the most dangerous public schools in New York--to cast a vision of how much we matter to God and his work in the world. True significance will cost you everything, but you will get more than you ever dreamed in return.

Includes end-of-chapter questions for personal study or small-group discussion.




"InSignificant is the story of a man who has been stretched by the extent of God's love for 'the least of these.' Whether you are in the middle of a similar journey, or preparing to take a step of faith, this book is for you."
--Dave Stone, Senior Pastor, Southeast Christian Church

"Through his experience as a teacher in a very rough school, Chris Travis has done a tremendous job of answering the question 'Do I matter?' to kids who have every reason to think that the answer is no. Sometimes we just need someone like Chris to remind us that God says yes!"
--Dr. Tim Harlow, Senior Pastor, Parkview Christian Church

"Chris Travis has written an incredibly honest book that speaks to issues all of us wrestle with but few have the courage to talk openly about. Let his words challenge you, encourage you, and provide you with a new framework to understand your significance in this life."
--Aaron Brockett, Lead Pastor, Traders Point Christian Church

"I someday hope to be an author. If that day comes, I'd love to be able to say I came close to matching Chris Travis's ability to take his readers on a journey. This story will not leave you untouched. Every teacher, pastor, communicator, and parent should read this book!"
--Bert Crabbe, Lead Pastor, True North Community Church

Patheos

I pulled out inSignificant by Chris Travis, gave the back cover a quick scan and thought, “I don’t want to read this book.” Scads of books right now describe how the church needs to be made over, reimaged, etc.
