Product Description

...God's heart has its reasons

When we become children of God, our hearts journey down a new road of questions: "Why do I need to spend time with God daily?" and "Why does God discipline his children?" and "Why is the Bible relevant to me today?"

Greg Laurie offers astounding reasons in Because...

  • He wants to be with you...
  • He's your loving Father...
  • He wants to guide you...
  • His Word is your life...
This book is packed with fresh daily reflections to guide your pursuit of God. Simple. Practical. Personal. Biblical inspiration for everyday living.

Today...and everyday...find God's purpose for you.

At just nineteen years of age, Greg Laurie began his pastoral ministry leading a Bible study of thirty people. Today, that small group has grown into a church of some 15,000 people, with Laurie serving as senior pastor. Named one of the eight largest churches in America and the third biggest in California, Harvest Christian Fellowship in Riverside, California, recently celebrated twenty-five years of ministry.

Publisher's Weekly

Laurie, a well-received radio Bible teacher and pastor, offers a disappointing daily devotional on basic theological and life issues. Despite Laurie's dynamic on-air knack for mesmerizing audiences with spirited relevancy and uncompromising adherence to biblical principles, this text lacks depth and originality. The content covers the expected topics for Christians: prayer, holiness, faithfulness, commitment, temptations, spiritual warfare and the like. In one page-plus miniessays, Laurie includes a brief reading, Bible verse(s), an abbreviated prayer, faith action suggestions and space for personal reflections. Given Laurie's penchant for expressive teaching, many of his devotions feel stale and are sure to let down faithful listeners. However, Laurie's take on wearing the "necessary armor" for effective spiritual warfare is one highlight. His words are specific and vivid as he describes the importance of putting on the entire suit of heavenly armor, a package deal including belt, breastplate, shoes, shield, helmet and sword. As he points out, believers can't simply pick and choose which pieces to become proficient in using; rather, every Christian must learn to skillfully employ them all. Laurie has a large fan base eager for new material on important Christian living topics; sadly, this book simply does not live up to his reputation for delivering cutting-edge teaching tools. (Dec.)
