I have never met a person whose goal was to ruin his or her life. We all want to be happy, and we want it all of the time."??So begins James Bryan Smith in The Good and Beautiful Life. The problem is, he tells us, we have bought into false notions of happiness and success. These self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying, worry and judging. Eventually we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.
- Includes questions for individual reflection and processing embedded in the text
- ?Inclues content for small group discussion at the end of each chapter.
- ?Each chapter includes a description of a suggested companion spiritual practice
- ?Includes twelve weeks of material for small groups plus an introductory week
??Following the Sermon on the Mount, this follow-up to The Good and Beautiful God guides us to look behind these character flaws and to replace our false beliefs with Jesus' narratives about life in the kingdom of God.
