In Worthy, college professor Melanie Springer Mock sifts through the shape and weight of expectations that press Christians into cultural molds rather than God’s image. By plumbing Scripture and critiquing the ten-billion-dollar-a-year self-improvement industry, Mock offers life-giving reminders that we are fearfully and wonderfully made. Set free from the anxiety to conform to others’ expectations, we are liberated to become who God has created us to be. If you’re worn out from worrying that you’ve missed God’s One Big Calling, and if you’re tired of trying to fit yourself into some cookie-cutter Christian mold, step away from the expectations and toward God’s heart.

Reviews

Review by: Jennifer Grant, author of When Did Everybody Else Get So Old? - December 1, 2017
“Melanie Springer Mock’s new book, Worthy, truly matters. It matters, as Madeleine L’Engle might say, ‘cosmically,’ as the author tells her own story of untangling her faith from empty or showy religion and affirms that we are all “inherently image-bearers of God” and worthy simply because we exist. I love Mock’s sensibility (and good sense) and her call to authenticity and love.”
Review by: MaryKate Morse, author and spiritual director - December 1, 2017
“Using her own life as a flashlight, Melanie Springer Mock wonderfully illustrates ways to discover worth when ‘not enough’ is the message most often heard in Christian and secular cultures. If you are yearning to be simply and amazingly ‘you’ in Christ and in community, read this book. It certainly touched me.”
Review by: Elrena Evans, editor at Evangelicals for Social Action - December 1, 2017
“Reading Worthy is like sitting down for a cup of coffee with a best friend you didn’t know you had. Melanie Springer Mock both affirms the worthiness of every human being as created in God’s image, and gently leads her reader to consider larger questions of social justice in the context of individual worth. This book is a must-read for anyone who has ever felt like an outsider, watching the parade of ‘haves’ go by while perennially feeling like a ‘have not.’”
Review by: Shirley Showalter, author of Blush - December 1, 2017
“When we are truly, deeply loved, the way Jesus loves, our hearts and minds expand beyond all knowing. Worthy doesn’t just describe that love; it takes you inside it through the power of story. Reading this beautiful, vulnerable book will make you feel worthy in your very bone —and will inspire you to love others the same way. What good news!”
