: Over 200,000 sold! For the past decade The Good and Beautiful God has been helping readers ask hard questions about the character of God. We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true-but many are false. "God wants me to try harder."
"God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad."
"God is angry with me." James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In the pages of this book you are invited to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once you've discovered the truth in Scripture, you can engage in a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind. Discover the narratives that Jesus lived by-to know the Lord he knew and the kingdom he proclaimed-and learn how to practice spiritual exercises that will help you grow in the knowledge of our good and beautiful God. This limited premium quality anniversary edition includes a new afterword by James Bryan Smith and a ribbon bookmark.

James Bryan Smith (M.Div., Yale University Divinity School, Ph.D., Fuller Theological Seminary) is a theology professor at Friends University in Wichita, KS and a writer and speaker in the area of Christian spiritual formation.
A founding member of Richard J. Foster's spiritual renewal ministery, Renovar, Smith is an ordained United Methodist Church minister and has served in various capacities in local churches.
