Description

This book is for you if:

• You dread family occasions because relatives will ask you what you’re doing with your life
• Social media leaves you with the miserable suspicion that most of your friends have more fun/a better relationship/more money/a better house/more friends than you do
• Watching sitcoms from your adolescence on Netflix makes everything feel better
• You’ve ended up in a job that has absolutely nothing to do with what you dreamed of doing when you were six (or eleven, or sixteen)
• You still keep loads of stuff at your parent’s house

Sooner or later, most of us find that adult life is not all it’s cracked up to be. At some point we take a look at where we’ve got to and wonder: “Is this it? Why did no one warn me that adult life was going to be this… difficult?”

Rachel Jones is 20-something, trying to keep it together, and ready to say what we’re all thinking. Whether you’re just feeling a bit lost or having a full “quarter life crisis”, this funny, honest, hopeful book reveals the difference Jesus makes to the challenges of adulting.

Commendations

Here's some smart, solid, durable and proven wisdom—the kind of wisdom that's getting harder to find. So my advice for 20-somethings who love Jesus: get it and read it.

Life in young adulthood can seem pretty disorienting - this book gets how that feels, and helps you find your feet and walk with confidence. And for anyone, like me, who is well beyond being anywhere near young adulthood, Rachel Jones will help you get inside how it feels to be a millennial or Gen-Z-er - to understand the tensions, hopes and fears, and how the Christian faith speaks compellingly to them.

Rachel Jones is the friend who just gets you. In Is This It?, she covers profoundly deep and impactful issues for twentysomethings with relatability, honesty, and a healthy dose of humor. This book will uncover and address some of your deepest longings, fears, and insecurities while meeting you with a firehouse of gospel grace and practical insight. I wish everyone my age could read this book!

Independent reviews

This book will help people take their eyes off of their situation and focus instead on Jesus.

Alistair Chalmers, Alistair Chalmers

Jones is a great writer, easy to read and it’s as if she is narrating her book to you. I recommend that you buy it as soon as it hits the shelves, that you read it and buy others copies too.... continue reading

It’s not just going to make you grow; it’s going to make you laugh.

Jonny Ivey, Heirs Magazine

Rachel speaks to the millennial heart on everything from boredom to singleness, doubt to ageing. She faithfully presents the Bible’s promise of something better than whatever we wanted to have by now. She holds out the hope of becoming more like Jesus.... continue reading

Customer reviews

“Such an encouragement!!”

Rachel's life and her brave description of so many areas described in this book mirrors my life incredibly. This is definitely a book that needs to be read by so many young people and young adults. The idea and supposed fear of singleness, questioning the meaning of life, dissatisfaction in ones job, isolation, doubt and so much more are all topics that Rachel explores especially from her own experiences. God has used her especially to tell a story that we all need to contemplate in our lives. Read it, you won't regret it.

“Brilliant”

The brilliance of Jones’s book is that unlike any other self-help book being pushed at us on social media – it’s an unashamed acknowledgement that not-so-good thoughts litter our minds during times of big changes. But, even more brilliant is Jones’s reliance on God’s Word and His purpose for our lives.

“Warm, witty, helpful.”

There’s no better way to approach the quarter-life crisis than with Rachel Jones. Is This It? will help you navigate through all the tricky turns of millennial life, whether you are going through it yourself or know someone who is. It’s funny, compassionate and completely relatable - highly recommend.
