Today’s 20- and 30-somethings aren’t just watching a world around them crying out in great need—they’re mobilizing to answer that cry. With lattes in hand, laptops at the ready, updating their Facebook status, and announcing to the Twitterverse “this is important,” they are looking into the face of soaring injustice, raising awareness, seeking opportunity, and being hope in a struggling world.

It’s Not All About You is written by a diverse team of writers: Some grew up in church, others have never set foot in a sanctuary. Some have a decade of international professional experience while others are just starting their undergrad degree. They have voluntarily served in the military, in a food co-op, in an inner city clinic.

Motivated by deep faith or just simple concern, and living and breathing against the stereotypes of their generation, the young adults who are part of this book— this conversation—are well aware that it’s not all about them. It’s about all of us, and what we do—already do, can do, should do, must do—to make it a better world. Be inspired to create change.

Great for a solo read or with a small reading group, with discussion questions at the end of each essay.
