To Live Is Christ To Die Is Gain

Full Product Description

Author Matt Chandler provides real, everyday ways to pursue faith; chasing, knowing God, and loving Jesus as the goal:  To live is Christ, to die is gain — this is the message of the Philippians.

This is the short and simple guide to the message of Philippians - arguably the Bible’s most quoted book. Often quoted in sound-bites, this is the letter that Paul wrote to paint a rich portrait of you as a mature Christian.

Chandler doesn't take apart the book of Philippians verse by verse. Instead he covers all of Paul's major themes: living a worthy life, what the humble seek, rejoicing, worry, and contentment in down-to-earth, conversational, non-academic language.

Chandler links Paul’s various themes with the common thread of dying to self, pursuing Jesus, and allowing the Holy Spirit to transform you. He helps you see ways you can apply the principles to your own life and grow spiritually.

Written for those new to the Bible, and those not so new still want to learn something new. Practical and useful, you’ll find applications to real life, and gain a better idea of what it means to say, "To Live is Christ, to Die is Gain."

Publisher's Description

Using Paul's radical letter to the Philippians as his road map, Matt Chandler forsakes the trendy to invite readers into authentic Christian maturity.

The short book of Philippians is one of the most quoted in the Bible, yet Paul wrote it not for the popular sound bites, but to paint a picture of a mature Christian faith. While many give their lives to Jesus, few then go on to live a life of truly vibrant faith.

In this disruptively inspiring book, Chandler offers tangible ways to develop a faith of pursuing, chasing, knowing, and loving Jesus. Because if we clean up our lives but don't get Jesus, we've lost! So let the goal be Him. To live is Christ, to die is gain�this is the message of the letter. Therefore, our lives should be lived to Him, through Him, for Him, with Him, about Him�everything should be about Jesus.

"I'd highly recommend this book to anyone wanting to take a closer look at the book of Philippians. I think it would also be great for a small group to work through together, reading through a chapter of Philippians each week along with the corresponding chapters from Chandler's book." - Other Retailer's Reader Review

Matt Chandler is a man captivated by Jesus, the Gospel and grace. In this, his latest book, he takes us on a journey into the depths of Paul's famous letter to the Philippians and reveals the full beauty of a life so centred on Jesus that all else pales in comparison."
