My Life for Yours: A Walk through the Christian Home


Canon Press 2004

Runs on Windows, Mac and mobile.


How does life in each room of your home manifest the Gospel? The Christian Gospel isn’t just a spiritual reality. The Word became flesh and bone, and the Gospel becomes our porch, dining room, bedroom, and kitchen.

The driving desire of the Gospel is “my life for yours.” Our desire should be to have this love transform everything we do, room by room. This book works its way through every part of the house, examining each part in light of Scripture. The claims of God are always total, and this is evident on the doorposts and in a sink full of dishes. Self-centeredness destroys in monotonously similar ways. Giving up life for another produces a harvest of kindness and mercy. Household questions should always begin with, “is this my life for yours?”
