We all long to be the hero in a story, but most of us don’t believe it’s possible and our brokenness, weakness, and failure tell us why. But Duncan Robinson flips the script on traditional heroism and exposes the liberating truth that what seemingly guaranteed our place among the outcasts and forgotten are actually the primary catalysts to humility and surrender, the starting line of unlikely heroism.“Story” is the most powerful medium of communication today and Duncan Robinson does not disappoint. Through descriptively honestly accounts from his own journey, refreshing perspectives from heroes of old, and surprisingly inspiring stories from some of the most unlikely of sources, you will feel yourself begin to dream unlikely dreams of surrender and humility revealing your true place in the company of other unlikely heroes.

Editorial Reviews

We all long to be the hero in a story, but most of us don’t

believe it’s possible – and our brokenness, weakness,
and failure tell us why. But Duncan Robinson flips the script
on traditional heroism and exposes the liberating truth that
what seemingly guaranteed our place among the outcasts and
forgotten are actually the primary catalysts to humility and sur-
render, the starting line of unlikely heroism.

“Story” is the most powerful medium of communication
today and Duncan Robinson does not disappoint. Through
descriptively honestly accounts from his own journey, refresh-
ing perspectives from heroes of old, and surprisingly inspir-
ing stories from some of the most unlikely of sources, you will
feel yourself begin to dream unlikely dreams of surrender and
humility revealing your true place in the company of other un-
likely heroes.

Besides, Duncan heroically references Yoda and Chewbac-
ca, you know it’s going to be a great read!

It’s tempting to look at Biblical characters and attribute spiri-
tual qualities to them - to “clean them up” to fit the way we
think of how God used them. The reality is that most of them
were common people who were deeply flawed and despite their
failures – an uncommon God used them in ways that made a
huge impact! Duncan insightfully and creatively helps you un-
derstand how the common “old you” can become an Unlikely
Hero when touched by an uncommon God! Well worth the
read!

Church of Celebration.

If you are satisfied with simply going through the motions in
your walk with God, this is not the book for you. However,
if you want to walk the road from ordinary to extraordinary—
this is your guide on how to get there. Written with crystal
clarity, heartfelt passion, and brutal honesty, Unlikely Hero will
help you to become a hero for our great God.
