Full Product Description
Instead of life over, under, from, or even for God, what leads us into freedom and restoration is life with God.
Why are American Christians, who have more access to biblical teaching than any other people in history, failing to experience the freedom of the Christian life? Why are pastors, those closest to the work and ministry, burning out at an alarming rate? Why do many church members, who give large amounts of their time and wealth to Christ and his kingdom, secretly question the legitimacy of their efforts? And why are spiritual seekers dismissing the validity of the Christian message?
Is it possible weve misunderstood the call of the Christian life?
With explores the narrative of the Bible from Genesis to Revelation, and the stories of faithful women and men throughout history, to show that we were created to be with God, and that restoring this connection is his mission. When we neglect this calling in favor of a life over, under, or even for God, we will not know the freedom Christ intended. But a life lived in rich communion with God cultivates faith, hope, and love in a way that transforms both us and the broken world we inhabit.

WithJohnny Douglas, via The Good Book Stall
Tasks done ‘for’ God can kill the beauty of our life ‘with’ God! This new title is all about how we relate to God in every situation. Jethani dissects life as to our direction and worldview with God, underpinned by a large volume of detail as to how we engage with and view God. Scripture, history and story embed his theory and emphasis, as he unpacks the detailed theology of those who have gone ahead of him. Solid if unspectacular, this is fresh, relevant and faithful in our Trinitarian faith. As Jethani states, 'The Life with God' posture is predicated on the view that relationship is at the core of the cosmos: God the Father with God the Son with God the Holy Spirit. He did not send a genie to grant us our desire of ‘life with God’, nor did he give us a task to accomplish ‘Life for God’, instead God himself came to be with us’
A With-life is life, and life to the full!
