The Late Awakening

How the Gospel Woke Me Up in the Nick of Time

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


“Gospel” – a word that is overused and under-appreciated. Do a quick Google search and you’ll find over 67 million results.  Confining the hunt to a list of Christian books will still yield nearly 8,000 products. But in spite of the cultural prevalence of the word, few people really understand and experience the gospel. Unfortunately, most Christians – even those who attend good churches, read their bibles, and pray often – live with a myopic view of the gospel.  They tend to believe that the gospel is something necessary for salvation, but that it makes very little difference in their day-to-day lives.   

Written in a light-hearted, conversational style, The Late Awakening reveals the gospel as more than merely a one-time event to believe in, but a powerful, life-changing narrative that has the potential to impact individuals, families, communities, and entire cultures.  Author Neil Downey gives an accessible and thought-provoking glimpse at the depth and breadth of the Good News, helping believers discover their daily, ongoing need for grace & truth and points them to Jesus – the gospel's subject and source.

Praise for The Late Awakening:

"We owe a debt of gratitude to Neil Downey for creatively and carefully unpacking a word that is central to our lives as followers of Christ, but often taken for granted."   Tim Muehlhoff, Professor of Communication, Biola University; Author of Authentic Communication: Christian Speech Engaging Culture  

"Regardless of where you may be on your spiritual journey, I encourage you to read and share The Late Awakening . . . before it’s too late!” Sam Rima, Executive Pastor, Tenth Church (Vancouver, BC); Author of Overcoming the Dark Side of Leadership and Spiritual Capital: A Moral Core for Social and Economic Justice
