About the Book

“A man will be imprisoned in a room with a door that is unlocked and opens inward; as long as it does not occur to him to pull rather than to push.” —Ludwig Wittgenstein In Taking a Stand, Matt Schweppe presents us with a basic choice in the form of a metaphor—imprisonment or freedom. Chapter after chapter, he shows us the “prison of the mind,” what happens when we “plead guilty,” the ways in which we “sentence” ourselves to a small life, and what we can do to experience a “jailbreak.” Matt is calling us to live an incredible life. “Are you alive?” he asks. Or are you on death row? “The possibility for an incredible life exists. Will you choose it?” asks Matt. —Excerpt from the Foreword by Robert Holden, PhD.
