If you’re looking for a great gift for a loved one this Christmas, I highly recommend Marty Duren’s new book, The Generous Soul. Especially during this season of Christmas, it is so easy to get caught up in the consumerism, stress, overs-spending and debt that characterizes American life every day. It really is a vicious cycle that not only robs us of resources, but also of the joy in life Christ has provided. Since that is not how God intended his followers to live, we must figure how to break this cycle and learn how to be a true follower of Jesus, not by our words alone, but with our whole lives including our finances! All of the resources needed to alleviate hurting have been given to us. The question is what are we doing with what we have been entrusted with to bless the world?
Using an abundance of biblical sources and recent statistics combined with plenty of personal experiences and humor, Marty points us to a way of living that accomplishes God’s will for our lives of freedom and joy and makes an impact on a hurting world in the name and for the glory of Jesus. The Generous Soul is a fiercely practical book that is well-written, easy to read, and desperately needed in our churches today. I am going to encourage everyone in my church to read this and hope you’ll do yourself and your family a favor and read it soon, as well.
