Book Review: InSignificant by Travis

This book wasn’t what I expected it to be… it was better. And I thought it would be good.

I expected it would be a nonfiction book by a pastor about finding real significance in Christ. And it is… but it’s much more.

Chris Travis is a church leader who, at the nudge of God, set aside his comfort and prestige to become a middle school math teacher at the most dangerous school in Harlem for two years.

The daily battle of teaching in that environment made Travis feel incredibly insignificant. He was faced with how much worldly success and respect had come to mean to him. God stripped him of these, so he only had Christ to cling to…

The second year, because out of the crucible with less dregs and more Christ, and saw God move.

It is an incredibly story, but it is not just the story. Every chapter also took it back to the Bible and to you. Travis was amazed to find that at his most insignificant he found everyone is significant grounded in Christ, because only He prevails. This book says Truth about spiritual reality I have longed to articulate— about the reversal of the “upside down kingdom” and how Christ lives that out through surrendered lives.

I love this book. I love it. I whole heartedly recommend it.

I received this book for free from Bethany House in exchange for my unbiased review.
