About the book

"The Creator of the universe wants you to accomplish great things for him...It is your inability, not your perfection, that makes you an underdog worth using!"

Matt Keller shows every underdog that God chose people just like them to do his work and change the world.

Have you ever felt like an underdog? Like you don’t have the ability or confidence to pursue your dreams? The Bible is full of ordinary people the world considered underdogs. Yet God chose them to do his work.

In God of the Underdogs, pastor Matt Keller tells his own story of being an underdog as well as the stories of the underdog heroes in Scripture. Men and women like Moses, Esther, King David, Samuel, Joseph, Paul the Apostle, and even Jesus. The stories and scriptures you’ll read will inspire you to face down the excuses holding you back, and you will be free to pursue your destiny as never before!

Maybe you’re thinking, My past is too dark. “But it’s your past,” Matt assures you. God of the Underdogs will show you that the Creator of the universe wants you to accomplish great things for him. He wants to use your life in a way he will use no one else’s. Don’t shrink back from your destiny; lean into it. The Bible says you are a friend of God. Beloved. Highly esteemed. Known. More than conquerors. God sees your potential. It is your inability, not your perfection, that makes you an underdog worth using in God’s eyes. So rise up, underdog! God has a special plan for your life.

  • Matt is a new voice in leadership and one you need to listen to. The underdog message has been a common theme in my life for sure. My background was never in conferences and events, but here I am, leading the Catalyst Movement, primarily as an underdog. If God can use me, he can definitely use you. Matt’s book will inspire you to take on the next challenge and be the leader God has called you to be.”
    -Brad Lomenick, president and lead visionary, Catalyst Conferences and author of The Catalyst Leader. @BradLomenick

  • “Everyone loves an underdog. In this book, Matt Keller shows us that God does, too. In fact, God desires to use your shortcomings and your failures-as a springboard to greatness. God of the Underdogs will guide you beyond your limitations and into a realm where only God-powered potential exists.”
    -John Bevere, Author / Speaker, Messenger International, Colorado / Australia / United Kingdom
  • “One of Satan’s favorite tools is to convince us that we are unworthy … un-useful … unqualified to lead. As an underdog, surely targeted from my earliest days for destruction, I’ve been surprisingly redeemed for God’s service and glory. I love this book! It challenges the next generation of underdog leaders … dreamers who bring a radical approach to changing their world!”
    -Dr. Wess Stafford, President and CEO, Compassion International

    -Todd Mullins, Lead Pastor, goChristFellowship.com, ChristFellowship.tv
  • “As a fellow underdog, I can relate to the need to follow the Lord even when you are totally convinced you are unqualified and unprepared for where He is leading you. The God of the Underdogs is a rally cry for all of us to stop doubting our leadership and start trusting the Lord. Everyone can relate to the feeling that they are unqualified to lead successfully. The God of the Underdogs uses well-known stories of famous underdogs in Biblical history and allows us to not only see them in a new light, but to see ourselves in them.”
    -Rob Hoskins, President I OneHope, Inc.

    -Brady Boyd, Pastor of New Life Church, Author of Sons and Daughters and Let Her Lead
  • “At one time or another, we’ve all felt like the odds against us were just too great to overcome. I love God of the Underdogs because it so powerfully reminds us that when we’re in those situations, we don’t just “have a chance” – we’re actually in the perfect position for God to use us in a big way. In his honest and humorous style, Matt challenges readers to leave their excuses behind, face even the worst odds with faith rather than fear, and watch God do something incredible.”

God always asks us to do more than we could on our own but with God’s help – we are no longer the underdog!”
