Whether you feel restless or satisfied right now, Jim Cymbala believes that God has more for you. In this new book, he'll help you find out how to access the "more" God intends--more peace, real joy, and a deeper sense of purpose. As you open yourself up to the "more" of God, you will also discover your unique work assignment--the one thing God is calling you--and no one else--to accomplish for the sake of his work in the world.
Using the style of extemporaneous sermons, Cymbala, longtime pastor of the Brooklyn Tabernacle and author of Fresh Faith, brings a message of inspiration to readers. God, Cymbala says, wants more for Christians than rote religion or an empty life. The book is dotted with anecdotes of real people who overcame obstacles of poverty and drug addiction by a newfound commitment to Jesus; used their money and skills to support the church; or gave up the security of good jobs to serve others. As such, it will likely encourage some Christians facing life challenges. Although the associations often seem forced and the book's trajectory is unclear, Cymbala's use of biblical texts (particularly from Joshua, Judges and Ruth) serve their contemporary purpose. What the book lacks in unity, it makes up for in passion. Cymbala's confidence about defining the nature and wishes of God will not suit every reader, but his commitment to promoting generosity and well-being through the church yields gems of encouragement for people seeking stability and direction.
