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 most of us 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 angst of adulting.

Commendations

For a generation in the grip of the 'quarter-life crisis' too often cynics roll their eyes whilst others merely reinforce their blindspots. By contrast this book engages brilliantly with compassion, clarity, wit and most importantly much-needed, Christ-centred, grace-filled truth. This book is a gem - read it, share it with others and realise the difference Jesus makes!

I totally loved this book. Witty, honest and painfully real, this book is a gem. I laughed out loud, I cried, I felt like Rachel could see into my head and she understood. Better still, she showed me Christ and the difference that he makes to life’s questions.This book is so packed full of wisdom, I’ll have to buy in bulk as I know I’ll keep giving it away!

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!

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

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

“Hugely helpful!”

(Review written for 'Is this it?')

Found this book extremely helpful. Love the way Rachel keeps the book firmly ground in Scripture, thoughtfully weaving appropriate Bible stories/passages throughout each chapter. Plenty of personal anecdotes are used and her style is warm and engaging, with some lovely moments of human. Highly recommended!

“Such an encouragement!!”

(Review written for 'Is this it?')

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”

(Review written for 'Is this it?')

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.”

(Review written for 'Is this it?')

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.
