In a political season when many seem to be grasping for a candidate who radiates strength, perhaps we in the church need to begin a discussion about what strength really is. In his new book Strong and Weak: Embracing a Life of Love, Risk & True Flourishing (IVP), Andy Crouch argues that a vibrant and meaningful life requires accepting the paradox that both strength and weakness are essential. He says we were made for a life that “embraces the paradox of flourishing, that pursues greater authority and greater vulnerability at the same time.” John Ortberg says the book is “built on a clear, deep, life-changing insight that opens up vast possibilities for human flourishing.”
