In his new book inSignificant, bestselling author and pastor Chris Travis offers hope for anyone seeking a life of meaning. Travis shares the startling truth of God's plan to change the world: Jesus conquered evil not through force or victory, but through defeat. In this insightful, soul-stirring book, Travis reveals how God has a way of turning things upside down; he makes the weak strong, the foolish wise, and the insignificant matter. InSignificant shares a powerful, reassuring message with every believer: God has a master plan and a specific purpose for each of his children.

Through powerful true stories-including his own gritty experiences teaching at the most dangerous public school in New York-Travis casts an inspiring vision of how much we matter to God and his work in the world. True significance will cost you everything, but you will get more than you ever dreamed in return.

InSignificant includes end-of-chapter questions for personal study or small-group discussion.

"This book is anything but InSignificant. . . . Travis brings a humble, approachable style to his story of finding one's purpose and obeying God's will, even under tough circumstances. His revelation that helping others means more than finding comfort reminds the reader what really matters: unselfish love, serving others, dependence on God."
-Publishers Weekly
