Start the New Year catching up with
Who is preaching in our church and holding a seminar later this month. We have three of Mark's books in our library.
THE REST OF GOD
In The Rest of God, author Mark Buchanan says that the Sabbath is essential to our full humanity and faith. God set forth a rhythm of work and rest that if restored to our lives will bring prolonged life, enriched relationships, increased fruitfulness, and abundant joy. For the majority of us who have endless demands and stifling daily routines, discovering the "rest of God" is the solution to "not enough time."
YOUR GOD IS TOO SAFE
Your God is Too Safe thoughtfully explores why Christians get stuck in the place of complacency, dryness, and tedium and how to move on to new levels of spiritual passion! Buchanan shows how most Christians begin their spiritual journey with excitement and enthusiasm only to get bogged down in a "borderland"---an in-between space beyond the "old life" but short of the abundant, adventurous existence promised by Jesus. Citing Jonah, Buchanan examines the problem of "borderland living" where doubt, disappointment, guilt, and wonderlessness keep people in a quagmire of mediocrity. He then offers effective solutions to get unstuck and move into a bold, unpredictable, exhilarating walk with Christ.
THE HOLY WILD
It's the direst question in human existence: Can God be trusted? With refreshing honesty, Buchanan poignantly explains what's riding on our answer. Whether we're peaceful or suspicious, happy or discontented, everything hangs on our perception of divine character---and matters mightily at the day of our death. Discover meaning for your life---and joy for living!
