In Celebration of Simplicity

Penelope Wilcock

In Celebration of Simplicity

Penelope Wilcock

$13.99

Paperback
Our spiritual growth has been stifled by our long obsession with consumption and possessions. This practical yet visionary book offers a model for a truly healthy life based on gospel simplicity. Ditch the stuff that gets in the way, and your heart is free to respond to God. 'What is in these pages works,' Pen says. 'It's the medicine for today, it transforms life. It's the part of the Bible that shouts off every page but is silenced before it ever gets to church.' Christian simplicity affects our management of time, money, possessions, speech, what we do, eat and hear, our relationships, resources, homes, transport, the way we dress. It requires discipline. 'But as we journey, a wonderful sense of freedom permeates our lives; the light heart that is necessary to walk gracefully in Christ's way.'
