Here's some recommended reading to compliment our Pastor's series on Stewardship. The descriptions below are from the publisher.
Every Good Endeavour - Tim Keller
In today's increasingly competitive and insecure economic environment, we often question the reason for work: why am I doing this? Why is it so hard? And what can I do about it?
Work may seem just a means to an end: we do it to earn the money to enjoy life outside the workplace.
Here, Timothy Keller argues that God's plan is radically more ambitious: he actually created us to work. We are to work together to make the world a better place, to help each other, and so to find purpose for our lives. Our faith should enhance our work, and our work should develop our faith.
A Praying Life - Paul Miller
Author Paul Miller shares his insights and conclusions about how to connect the broken pieces of your life and allow prayer—even poorly delivered—to fill the gaps with meaning and substance.
Miller's down-to-earth approach and practical nature will help you see that your relationship with God can grow and your communication with Him can get better.
A Quest for Life - Paul Tripp
Paul David Tripp expertly traverses the deepest recesses of the human heart and compassionately invites fellow Christian travelers to journey with him into God s bigger kingdom. The author promises readers that they will be encouraged, excited, and motivated by hope as they learn how to set aside their little kingdom attachments which can expertly masquerade within the church as Christian activism, legalism, emotionalism, formalism, creedalism, and externalism; in favor of God s expansive and soul-freeing eternal quest. Tripp demonstrates though sound biblical principles how humanity is made by God to transcend far beyond the mere physical realm and is likewise created to be glory junkies; those whose visionary lives are governed by God s grand purposes rather than existing only within their narrow self-interested confines.
Don't Waste Your Life - John Piper
John Piper declares that God created us to live with a single passion: joyfully to display his supreme excellence in all spheres of life. The wasted life - a life that counts for nothing - is one without this passion.
