Description

(184 pages, paperback, Thomas Nelson)

Jesus’ first three decades of life were mostly hidden. However, with his life (and with ours), it is critical that we not mistake unseen for unimportant. Hidden years are unapplauded but not unproductive. They are sacred spaces, to be rested in not rushed through and most definitely never to be regretted.

In this personal, reflective book, Alicia helps us recognize the riches that God grows in us during uncelebrated seasons of our lives.

    This book shook me to my core and pulsates in my soul daily. It changed my life and my perspective on simply…waiting. I played football for Nick Saban at the University fo Alabama from 2010 to 2014, this time frame being the peak of Saban’s success. I have the both conference and national championship rings to prove it. I accepted Jesus as my savior at 6 years old, but from 18 to 22 I let being an Alabama football player become my identity instead of my platform for a while. I am now 25, working a “big boy” job in the defense contracting industry (not the ideal career for me), paying a mortgage, cultivating my marriage, trying to make friends in my personal time, and all the while I am trying to seek God in hopes of rediscovering my purpose, talents, gifts, and peace…things I seem to let the status of being a football player take place of. I’ve been broken, beaten, and barren ever since.

    “But God,” or in this case, “But this book inspired by God.” You’re reading the words of someone who hasn’t read an entire book from beginning to end since 4th grade’s “Where the Red Fern Grows” project. I absolutely hated reading, that is, until this book was gifted to me. The circumstances under which it was given to me in itself is a miracle, but I’ll spare you. Let’s just say it was divine appointment; the giver didn’t know me and I didn’t know her. She just sensed my spiritual wandering and stumbling around aimlessly. But the book…Mrs. Chole has wholly encompassed my every emotion, answered or at least soothed my questioning heart, and provided ample tools to fight the enemy in times of being told, “You’re a failure,” “God doesn’t care about your dreams,” “God has forgotten about you,” and of course, “You’re patience is in vain.” Am I still beaten, broken, and barren after reading this book? For sure. I’d be lying if I said I wasn’t. However, I have a better understanding of why. More importantly, I have a better understanding of what it’s going to produce and who it’s going to help. Thank God for turning a poetic atheist into a eloquent author and beacon for the light of God. I’m forever grateful and changed because of her and her Holy Spirit-inspired work.

      Daniel, your email meant so very much to me. Thank you for sharing your journey and for opening a window into how God has graciously used Anonymous to speak to you. Writing the book was a rich experience for my soul, but hearing how God is using it…is beyond words. Thank you!

    Jennifer Rothschild, author of Invisible: How you feel is not who you are

    Alicia is one of those rare communicators who captures the hearts and challenges the minds of a generation. Her book, Anonymous, sits on my shelf next to C.S. Lewis, and I am convinced that someday she will rise to similar prominence if given the platform and freedom to express her full God-given potential.

    Anonymous is a compelling and stunningly written book.

    Dr. Bill Taylor, World Evangelical Alliance Global Ambassador

    I cannot recommend this book more highly. You will not regret having read it. Don’t read it rapidly. Read it slowly. Mull over it and let it mull over you.

    Bishop Dr. Claude R. Alexander, Jr., pastor and author

    Anonymous is a must read for anyone who takes the path to maturity in Christ seriously.

    Mark Batterson, pastor and author

    Alicia Chole has a unique way of framing truth. Her heartfelt and thoughtful words penetrate the soul and make you feel and think in new ways. And when I read what Alicia has written, I don’t just feel like I know her. I feel like she knows me.
