About the Book
That’s awesome, but what exactly does it mean? It’s a big world out there, and for those of us who feel like we were made to transform it, it is vital that we have a path to follow.
Culture of the Few is written to point world changers to that path. It’s premise is that Jesus is the Ultimate Agent of Change and the only One worth following. And yes—following Jesus might lead us to some unexpected places. After all, the values of His Kingdom seem a bit backwards from the culture of this world.
The world had a hard time recognizing Jesus as the Messiah because He didn’t fit the mold. Instead of overthrowing the Roman tyranny and declaring Himself King, He spent the first thirty years of His life in a carpenter shop. When He did step out into His public ministry, He violated the myth that bigger is always better by sharing His life with a handful of ordinary men. He didn’t seem to be in a rush to accomplish His mission of saving the world. And then there was His teaching…
If you want to be first, choose to be last.
If you want to be great, become a servant.
It’s better to give than to receive.
Love your enemies.
Pray for those who persecute you.
Turn the other cheek.
What kind of nonsense is this? This kind of thinking seems to violate the basic principles of this world. And that is exactly why Jesus came. In His life, death and resurrection, He has delivered us from having to live according to the broken systems of this world (Col. 2:20).
Calling all world changers: Come find your life by laying it down and sharing in the True Life of Jesus! Brace yourself for surprises as we reach out for the hem of His garment and hold on for dear life. This is what we signed up for. Let’s Go!

Beyond the Book
Beyond the Book
Many of the stories and insights that Brad McKoy shares in the Culture of the Few book are a reflection of a collective journey that a group of friends and spiritual family are taking together. Beyond the pages of the book are real people who are trying to learn how to follow Jesus in every day ways. The journey is messy but rewarding. From time to time, some of the people that are a part of this community will be sharing on our blog to help provide a variety of insights and perspectives on what it means to live out the culture of the few.
This culture is not about a church or a particular model, it is centered in the life of Jesus. It is our hope that as we share the stories from our journey, that others will be encouraged to take their own. To learn more about the church community that Brad and Adriane help lead, visit aoxnow.com.
