Product Description

"I have never met a person whose goal it was to ruin his or her life. We all want to be happy and we want it all the time." So begins James Bryan Smith in The Good and Beautiful Life. The problem is he tells us, we have bought into false notions of happiness and success. These self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying worry and judging. Eventually we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.

Following the Sermon on the Mount , this follow-up to the Good and Beautiful God guides us to look behind these character flaws and to replace our false beliefs with Jesus' narratives about life in the kingdom of God.
