Losers Like Us

Losers Like UsFor the broken and the sinner…
For the misfit and the outcast…

If you look in the mirror and all you see is a loser looking back, then take heart. You are in good company.

Losers Like Us: Redefining Discipleship After Epic Failure intertwines Dan’s own story of loss and brokenness with that of Jesus’ twelve disciples to show how our “loser” traits, like theirs, are the very qualifications required to receive God’s love and grace, and to manifest his kingdom on earth. Jesus doesn’t just accept losers. He uses them for his work.

“God seems to have a soft spot for the ordinary, broken and failed people of the world. We fight those labels with everything we have, but in the end we always seem to end up in the same place. In Losers Like Us, Dan Hochhalter takes a raw and honest look at a journey from failure to freedom. But Losers Like Us is more than that—it is an invitation to discover that freedom for yourself.”
—Rick McKinley, Senior Pastor, Imago Dei Community

“With entertaining writing rich with both detail and humor, he examines each man’s particular traits and how we can relate to them. I enjoyed this book first of all for how I was able to learn about the 12 disciples as individuals and identify with them as never before. Most of all, I appreciated Hochhalter’s transparency and found inspiration.” —Susan,

    I really quite enjoyed this book. I think by far the best chapter of the book is the last. But you will have to read the rest of the Book to truly appreciate it. There’s no platitudes here. Hochhalter is honest and surprisingly open and honest to a fault. He lost his pursuit in a final interview to get a P.H.D. And what does he do now? After years of teaching, studying and giving his all to get it-only to be denied it by two people in a final interview? Well, you’d have to read the book to appreciate the irony. I learned much about discipleship in this book. Discipleship means being a follower. So, high or low, educated or not, there is one we all follow- Jesus Christ. The author makes this point poignantly, sweetly, honestly and in all sincerity. And that makes him a “winner” in my Book.
