That Time I Wrote a Book

Did you hear? I wrote a book. It's called Wrecked, and it just came out this week. In a minute, I'll share with you how you can get six exclusive gifts this week only when you pick it up.

About the Book

Wrecked BookWrecked is a book about the life we’re afraid to live—one full of radical sacrifice and selfless service. It’s a look at how we discover fulfillment in the least likely of places.

This is a guide to growing up and learning to live in the tension between the next adventure and our daily commitments.

We all need to be wrecked, to allow the pain of a broken world to slam into our comfortable lives—and let it change us. But that’s just the beginning.

Wrecked is a journey of unbecoming, covering the stories of people whose lives have been turned upside-down in the best way possible—and what they decided to do afterwards.

This book leads the charge, sharing the experiences of missionaries, storytellers, and entrepreneurs whose lives have been beautifully ruined by a larger purpose.

Will you be brave enough to join them?


In His upside-down kingdom, God promises we can actually find our life by giving it away to others. What is your God-given passion for serving? What is outside of you and bigger than you that demands your time, talent, and treasure? I encourage you to ponder that as you read Jeff’s thoughts in Wrecked. The result will be life changing . . . and you may be surprised to discover that the life changed could be yours.
—Dr. Wess Stafford, president and CEO, Compassion International
The dissatisfaction we feel has a surprising remedy, and this beautiful book tells us what it is: we need to change, and we need to be broken. The lessons of Wrecked will lead you through the wilderness.
—Chris Guillebeau, author, The $100 Startup
A stunning debut, this book—admittedly—wrecked me. In Wrecked, Jeff Goins held nothing back, using his poetic writing and passion for change-making to call me to action in my own life. He’ll do the same for you.
—Claire Díaz-Ortiz, Social Innovation, Twitter, Inc.
It’s been said, “The true gospel comforts the disturbed and disturbs the comfortable.” Jeff reminds us that Jesus not only came to heal broken hearts—but also to shatter the status quo. Let his book be an invitation to say yes to Jesus and then do something daring with your life. May it help you become a holy nonconformist to all the patterns of this world that are out of sync with the upside-down kingdom of God. May it give you the courage to join the revolutionary work of Jesus, loving people back to life and building a new world in the shell of the old one.
—Shane Claiborne, author, activist, and lover of Jesus,
Jeff Goins wrote my favorite kind of book. First he lived it, then he wrote it. The result is a book that everyone who has ever wondered “Is there more to life than this?” should read.
—Jon Acuff, Wall Street Journal bestselling author of Quitter: Closing the Gap Between Your Day Job & Your Dream Job
