About Everything: What You Give and What You Gain to Become Like Jesus
- Paperback: 240 pages
- Publisher: Thomas Nelson (October 16, 2012)
Readers discover exactly what it takes to grow in Christ and become like Him.
You don’t need a plan, and you don’t need a program. To experience the abundant Christian life, you only need Jesus. In Everything, critically acclaimed author Mary DeMuth answers the question: what exactly does it take to become more like our irresistible Savior? The answers readers find will inspire and surprise them. They discover revolutionary insights about:
* how undecorated obedience brings unprecedented spiritual growth
* how to rise above doubt, worry and fear
* how to develop an intimate friendship with the Holy Spirit
* how to cherish brokenness as a wide open pathway to God
* and much, much more
A life committed to Jesus is not about spiritual “bootstrapping,” pulling up our broken selves, hoping God didn’t notice our stumbling. With hard-hitting words written in love and smothered in biblical truth, Everything reminds us that the spiritually vibrant life we long for can be grasped. We must fight for it, strive for it ceaselessly, reach for it when we fall, and lift our hands in praise when we’re victorious. With extraordinary writing and fresh thinking, this groundbreaking book inspires believers to give everything to Jesus to gain everything he offers.
“No one closes this book unchanged. It ennobles desires. It releases dreams.–Leonard Sweet, best-selling author, professor at Drew University and George Fox University and Chief Contributor to Sermons.com
“Let’s be honest. Most of us who follow Christ are holding back. We want Christ but are convinced we’ll miss something if we surrender everything. In this challenging but tender book, Mary De Muth invites us to give Him everything in order to experience Him as Everything. In the end, it is the only course that will satisfy our deepest longings.”–Michael Hyatt, New York Times best-selling author of Platform and former CEO, Thomas Nelson Publishers
