About the Book

Book Title: From Comfort Zone to Trust Zone Author Name: Cecil Taylor Genre: Christian Living Release Date: January 6, 2024 The innate human longing for comfort is undeniable. However, Jesus challenges us to step beyond the boundaries of our comfort zones and venture into the profound realm of faith, aptly described as trust zones by Cecil Taylor. These are the spaces where we dare to take risks in service of Christ’s Kingdom. In this enlightening exploration of the Bible, Cecil Taylor delves into 12 narratives of Jesus encouraging individuals to forsake their comfort zones in favor of trust zones. Through insightful interpretation, he unveils the valuable lessons these stories impart for contemporary followers of Jesus.  

Book Excerpt

That distinction reminds me of another rich young ruler: Cuzco in the Disney movie, “The Emperor’s New Groove.” He craved certainty in a selfish way but lost it all when magically turned into a llama. Given a second chance at palace life as a human, he ultimately found another kind of certainty, relying on relationships rather than power.

Our trust zone is giving up the certainty we create for ourselves by embracing the uncertainty that comes from a relationship with God. The relationship itself is sound and certain and leads to eternal life. But the details feel risky at times. We don’t know where God will lead us, and we don’t know how life will treat us, so we ideally come to rely on him fully.

In Luke 9:24-25, Jesus says:

“For whoever wants to save their life will lose it, but whoever loses their life for me will save it. What good is it for someone to gain the whole world, and yet lose or forfeit their very self?”

Losing your life for Christ? Sounds very uncertain.

But uncertainty is the soil in which faith grows.
