Product Description

What is our motivation for serving Jesus? Is it so that we might have good health and be wealthy? Galatians 1 tells us that the wealth or health prosperity gospel is no gospel at all! However what we can find is fullness in Christ and in him we find that indeed God is enough for us!

This easy to read book addresses key themes that span global cultures:

The prosperity gospel myth (in it's various global forms)
Countering the view that material abundance is the sign of God's blessing and that poverty is a sign of God's curse; to distinguish between temporary, earthly benefits andeternal, spiritual ones.

Satisfaction/contentment/joy
Teaching and applying that satisfaction/contentment/joy is found in no earthly possession, achievement or position, outside of God; the fullness of Christ for every believer.

Fulfilment and purpose
Having developed the previous thoughts, this final area looks at whom we serve and not what we receive as a motivation and drive for what we do for Him.

This not just a book for the West or the Global South but for all!

Publisher's Description

Doctor Helen Roseveare, affectionately called Mama Luka, pioneered vital medical work in the Rain forests of the Belgian Congo - now the Democratic Republic of Congo. Throughout her eight years in training for the mission field and her first twelve years in Congo Helen Roseveare had prayed that God would give her a mountain top experience of his glory and power. However, after enduring civil war and having to start from the beginning again, and later when caring for her elderly mother, she realised that God's work is done in the valleys. He gives us the valleys and we are to dig the ditches (2 Kings 3: 16), trusting that they will be filled with life-giving water at the appropriate time. This is an inspiring story because it shows those times when God's blessings seem withdrawn - they are subsequently shown to have been there all the time. If you have ever experienced times when God's call on your life seems remote, or you are encountering trials and problems, you will find refreshment from Helen's pen. She shows how 'trusting in the Lord' can be a gritty, rewarding drama rather than a wispy platitude.

    This review was written for Enough!.
    The old adage of he who dies with the most toys wins is a mantra that seems to be growing stronger and stronger in today's culture. Many people are filled with a general unhappiness and dissatisfaction that they try to overcome by filling their lives with more possessions, activities, entertainment, and the like. The problem for many of us is that we never are quite happy. After all, how much is actually enough? What will it take to make you or me truly happy. These are questions we should seriously ask ourselves as we struggle to understand how to effectively live within and deal with a culture that promises us pleasure, fulfillment, and satisfaction around every corner, but sadly often leaves us more wanting and less fulfilled than we were when we started in the first place. What should we do?

    A likely answer to this question is that we should begins searching for who or what will actually fulfill us. Helen Roseveare feels she has an answer to this question, which she delivers in her new book from Christian Focus Publications titled Enough. Enough is written by Dr. Helen Roseveare, who went to what is now the Democratic Republic ofCongo in 1953, dedicating her life to serving others and pioneering vital medical work in the rain forests. Drawing on biographical sketches from her own life, Helen explores the idea of the sufficiency of Jesus Christ showing that He is enough for salvation, assurance, emotional support, pleasing God, and is enough for our happiness and contentment. Readers can get a good a good idea of what they will find in this book from the following quotation found in the prologue:

    "Just as there are many ways of using the word `enough' in our everyday lives, so there are many ways of understanding this in our spiritual lives. There is a wonderful truth that God has enough to supply all our needs. Enough for salvation, enough for forgiveness, enough to overcome temptations, enough to persevere in adversities, enough to calm our fears and anxieties. Enough grace, enough love, enough power. His supply is sufficient to meet not only all our needs, but the needs of everyone else in the world, now and at all times." (p. 9-10)

    Readers will likely see their own stories and experiences reflected in those Helen shares from here own life as she recounts how she dealt with her own struggles of feeling assured of the sufficiency of Christ for all of her needs.

    I would recommend this book for somebody looking to further explore the idea of the sufficiency of Christ through the lens of a dear saint who has dealt long and hard with this concept in the midst of her many years of ministry and service. At only eighty pages, this book can be completed in one or two sittings. I suspect that readers who are largely familiar with Helen's other biographical works may find some of the content in the book redundant. However, this is the first book I have read by Helen Roseveare, so I am unable to confirm whether or not that is the case.
