What People Are Asking – The Interview
Another: (adjective) different, distinct, of a different period, place, or kind; (pronoun) a person other than oneself.
What did Jesus really mean when He said, “For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will find it.” (Matthew 16:25, NIV)?
In Living for Another, author and speaker Brent Gambrell calls the reader to realize God has called us all to abundant life, but in order to have that, we must live a life for someone other than ourselves. You must live for Another.
Your life is not destined to be a cautionary tale of what could have been. Brent’s book is an exploration of the surprising joy and fulfillment that can only come from living the “upside down kingdom life.” Jesus and his disciples spoke so often about His new way of living and modeled for us. It’s a life of voluntary loss; a life poured out intentionally for others. Live your life in the same way as the One who gave His life for you.
…just as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve, and to give his life as a ransom for many.”
Live an abundant life when you live for Another.
quotes from the book
“…All of us battle our selfish “me monster…the flesh.”
“The cross was not an instrument of burden. It was an instrument of death! Jesus was saying to go die to your self . . . crucify the deeds of the flesh and come and follow Him in order to live ANOTHER life.”
“Anything God reveals, He intends to heal.”
”…what comes out of your eyes and your touch is far more important and comforting than what comes out of your mouth.”
“Whether by method or miracle, find the grace to forgive.”
“Knowing our Father’s heart toward all of us should spur us on to pour out this kind of grace on all those around us”
“Showing others our love by taking the time to stop and invest in their lives. It is then that others will see God’s truth fleshed out in us.”

As a professional golfer, my life sets me up for always chasing "another". I want another birdie that could mean another low round that could lead to another win. I want to win another major, another Ryder Cup and no matter how much I achieve, I'm left wanting more. Brent's book is a poignant reminder of which "another" I should be chasing. He does a beautiful job of illustrating the fullness of a life that is emptied of self and lived for another. That's a life I want.

Scripture contains almost sixty “one-another” passages, yet many believers may be unable to name even a handful, much less live them out. In Living for Another, Brent Gambrell builds a biblical case for selfless living before outlining a plan for serving others. Real-world experiences coupled with a candid sense of humor make this book accessible to read and easy to implement. You will want to pass this book on to a friend after you read it.
Jonny DiazContemporary Christian Artist
Our culture has it so backwards when we seek happiness by looking out for ourselves. I'm so excited for people to read "Another" and learn that God's plan leads to joy when we live a life focused on others!

'If you want to understand one-anothering, Brent's book is a must read. A question I a ask is, 'what do you think Jesus meant when He said Go?' 'Another' will show you.'
Tim BinnsYouth Evangelism Strategist / State Convention of Baptists in Ohio
Having dealt with so many Christians who lose their joy of their walk, Living for Another answers the why as well as what to do. Brent reminds us to be a funnel and not a puddle in our walk. I am excited to see how God uses this book to impact lives.

"Brent is a master at making the theologically complex undeniably simple. In Living For Another, he explains the true heart of the Christian life. I was amazed at how much ground he was able to cover and how convicted he was able to make me feel. If you're currently obsessed with yourself, and you don't want to change, please don't read this book. He was able to make me feel in such a short amount of time.".
