If you could go back in time to when you first became a Christian and impart some wisdom to yourself, what would it be? Maybe you'd advise against wearing that "turn or burn" T-shirt with the Energizer Bunny on it. You could comfort your zealous young self who just threw away his entire collection of secular CDs with the knowledge that one day God would send Spotify to make things right. Just think of all the pain that could be avoided.

Join Alex Early on Steve Brown, Etc., because until we invent time travel, the next best thing is his book, The New Believer's Guide to the Christian Life: What Will Change, What Won't, and Why It Matters. The Christianese Glossary alone is worth the price of admission.

Alex Early serves Redemption Church in Seattle and is the author of The Reckless Love of God. He's also a sought-after speaker.

Don't miss your chance to join Alex and Steve Brown at the Grace Encounter Conference in Florida, February 22-24. Visit GraceEncounterConference.com for information and registration.
