Redefining Discipleship after Epic Failure

This book can be downloaded and read in Apple Books on your Mac or iOS device.


In 2008, after seven years of preparation, Daniel Hochhalter permanently failed his PhD, leaving him with no refunds, no transferable credits, no recourse to appeal or try again, and no hope of gaining the qualifications needed for his desired career. Then he lost his job. Devastated and in crisis, with no Plan B and no clue how to redeem his future, he looked to the twelve disciples and discovered that—despite their gaping faults and sins—God still loved them and used them to change the world.

With fresh warmth and wisdom, ample hope and humor, Losers Like Us skillfully intertwines Dan’s own story with theirs to show how our worst mistakes and greatest failures bring us to a place of teachableness, egolessness, brokenness, and empathy—the very qualifications required to receive God’s love and grace, and to manifest his kingdom on earth.

Really makes you think

Dan might be “a loser,” but he is also a good writer. I love books that make you think, and this one does that, in spades. I daresay that, as long as you are human, you will identify with Dan and/or one or more of the “loser” disciples. What you decide to do with that information is up to you. In some ways, it sounds like Dan is still trying to figure that out for himself.

If we give up on the illusion that we are superior to those around us and instead of feeling like we need to prove/show that, focus on how we are all in the same boat and how we deal with THAT, the world would likely be a better and more civil place.

I learned a great deal about the Disciples that I did not know before. The book is excellent, if for nothing other than that. Beyond that, it forced me to take a good hard look at myself and my beliefs and how I respond to life and those around me.

I highly recommend it. I doubt you will ever think of the Disciples in the same way again. More importantly, it may help you to look at yourself and the God that loves you in a different way.
