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.
