Everyone's in this thing for themselves. The entertainment world. The business world. The political world. And, sadly, even the religious world. More and more, the Church is buying into a self-absorbed faith, pursuing health, wealth and spiritual high-fives at the expense of the Gospel we're supposed to be pursuing. God's Gravity: The Upside-Down Life of Selfless Faith, by Craig Borlase, deconstructs the myth of success that infects today's Christians. Drawing from the story of Job - a guy who does everything right and still sees his life fall to pieces - Borlase challenges a new generation of Christians to disavow the so-called "prosperity gospel," rediscover the importance of sacrifi ce and embrace the vital connection between social justice and a life of authentic religion. In a culture where even Christians are adopting values contradictory to the ethics of Jesus, God's Gravity dares us to turn our lives upside down - and live them the right way up.
Responsibility, Obedience and Sacrifice are what Jesus called His disciples to live by. But in our modern-day culture, a self-centered mindset has pervaded the Church and turned our focus from "What do I have that I can give?" to "What can I get?" God's Gravity hits this issue straight on. With unflinching honesty and bold authority, it offers a paradigm-shifting perspective on how our lives should be lived. Rethink your views of success and learn about God's upside-down economy. Book jacket.
