The Hidden Option:
Igniting Creativity to Solve Life’s Impossible Problems


We live in a polarized world. We want everything to fit in box A or B, option 1 or 2. Fight or flight. Black or white. Left or right. But Jesus regularly shattered restrictions and presented a third, hidden option.

Our God is bigger than just two options, and the same creativity Jesus used in finding the third option is available to you, whether you consider yourself creative or not. By learning to find the hidden option, you can become a better spouse, a better employee, a better friend, and even a better follower of Christ.

The Hidden Option explores questions like:

  • Is there really any hope for our world where everything is so polarized?
  • How do we find solutions that reach across the aisle without compromising the truth of God’s Word?
  • How can you minister to others when you already feel overworked and under resourced?
  • Do you have the capacity for creative problem solving, even though you might not consider yourself creative?

Everyone has a secret superpower called ‘creativity.’ If you’ve already tapped into that power, then you’re lucky. But if, like many, you’ve only brushed the surface of what’s possible, then you are in for a treat with the hidden option. Buckle up. This one’s a great ride!

Jeff Goins, best-selling author of The Art of Work



Once again, Jonathan merges his personal experience with a biblical perspective to help anyone (creative or not) learn how to solve problems by finding the option that may not seem as apparent. Already incorporating these perspectives into my every day life!
