About the Book

Jesus is very candid about what He calls us to do, whether it’s prayer, love, confession, judgment, or even just to trust in Him. But often the last thing we do is the first thing He requires, which is to simply obey. Obey is a candid look at the way Jesus calls us to live through His words and commands. It is a reflection of one follower’s journey, beginning on a mission in poor, rural South Africa, to fully appreciate the power of obedience to Jesus. What he found was that Jesus never gave unclear, ambiguous instructions for life—He was very straightforward. While His commands are not always easy, they are life-changing for those who choose to listen, pray, and act on them. Obey provides a challenging, but inspirational, starting point to achieving the power of the obedient life.

About the Author

Alec Zacaroli is a writer, attorney, and co-founder of 25:40, a ministry dedicated to serving poor, vulnerable children in rural southern Africa. He was born in Lacrosse, Wisconsin, but spent most of his childhood in Johannesburg, South Africa. In 1980 Alec returned to the United States, where he earned a degree in journalism and worked as a reporter for more than ten years. He received his law degree in 1998 and has since been practicing in Washington, D.C. Alec and his wife, Amy, founded 25:40 in 2003, when the Lord drew together his connection to South Africa with her experience of having been adopted. The ministry is founded on Jesus’ command in Matthew 25:40 to love Him through serving and loving others. Alec and Amy have four children, Nick, Sophie, Hannah, and Rebecca, and currently live in Northern Virginia.
