I am excited to announce that my first book is being released on Amazon tomorrow, December 11th. It will be available in both Kindle and paperback editions. The title is, Pursuing the Third Option: Following Jesus in a Polarized World. If you are interested in reading more about it, you can check out my author website here.

My hope is that this book will inspire readers to follow Jesus authentically in a world where so many topics end up dividing us. The way we talk about issues so often keeps us from dialogue because it lacks nuance. We too often allow incendiary rhetoric to replace thoughtful conversation. And often, only two extreme opposite views are heralded as options.
Jesus had a way of thinking beyond these extremes. He often created third options and we would do well to follow His lead.
Here is what Drew Dyck, author of one of my favorite books about God (Yawning at Tigers) wrote about the book:
“The first emotion I experienced when I read Pursuing the Third Option was relief. Like many, I’ve grown weary of the polarized, us or them, winner-takes-all mentality rising in the church and broader culture. How refreshing to hear a leader standing up and calling for a better way. The second thing I felt was hope. As Vincenti challenged me to push past the false binaries and live and lead with faith and courage, I was inspired. Vincenti is a deft storyteller and teacher. In the book Vincenti asks, “What if God is calling us to a life that is more dynamic and nuanced?” In response, he’s written a book that is both. Highly recommended!”

I am humbled and honored by Dyck’s words and I am so grateful to the Lord for the things He has put on my heart that I have been privileged to put onto paper in this book. It is a dream come true to publish a book – especially one that has a message I believe in. I hope that it inspires every reader in their own journey with Jesus in this polarized world.
