Product Description

The Christian life is often defined as "no." What starts with a desire to reject descructive things morphs into a "no" to people, enjoyment, laughter, pleasure, success, and ultimately life itself. Before we know it, we've reduced the Christian faith to a huge rejection of just about everything God has created. Is it any wonder why many in our culture think of Christianity and "no" comes to mind? In The God of Yes, Jud Wilhite explores the book of Ecclesiastes to show how faith can infuse meaning to the monotony of everyday life. He flips Ecclesiastes upside down to show that it is actually affirming life in all of its parts, with God at the center. Hardcover.

Publisher's Description


The Christian life is often defined as "no." What starts with a desire to reject descructive things morphs into a "no" to people, enjoyment, laughter, pleasure, success, and ultimately life itself. Before we know it, we've reduced the Christian faith to a huge rejection of just about everything God has created. Is it any wonder why many in our culture think of Christianity and "no" comes to mind?

We need perspective. We need more than just "no." We need to experience a divine "yes" to all of life as a gift from God.

Ecclesiastes, through Solomon's journals, gives us a huge dose of reality. Solomon's entire experience is a counterintuitive "yes" to God and every aspect of life. It provides a framework for a faith that squares off with reality and finds it infused with meaning.

THE GOD OF YES will explore this counterintuitive approach and provide clear application on how faith can infuse meaning to the monotony of everyday life. It will flip Ecclesiastes upside down to show that it is actually affirming life in all of its parts with God at the center. It will challenge the reader that his or her life can look different even if nothing changes externally.

Editorial Reviews

"Open this book and let Jud take you on a journey of spiritual discovery. You'll be encouraged, refreshed, challenged, inspired, and renewed. Don't delay-say 'Yes' to the adventure that awaits."—Lee Strobel, author of The Case for Christ and The Case for Faith
"THE GOD OF YES reads like a letter from a favorite friend. Jud is both wise and winsome. Since I've been on my own personal journey to live in God's yes this was a perfect resource that came at the perfect time. This book reinvigorated my passion, reminded me my contributions matter, and reignited my awareness to savor the small gifts. Don't just buy this book, dare to live its message!"—Lysa TerKeurst, author of Unglued, president of Proverbs 31 Ministries
"So many tend to look at God as a heavenly naysayer when He is really full of yeses. In his important book, THE GOD OF YES, Jud Wilhite shares ten life-changing principles that will transform your thinking and help you say yes to the life God wants you to have."—Craig Groeschel, author of Alter Ego, founding and senior pastor of Life Church
"Life as a Christian is supposed to be freedom, not slavery; it's supposed to be exciting, not boring; it's supposed to be an adventure, not predictable; it's supposed to be 'yes,' not 'no.' Jud helps us see all the areas where we misunderstand God's freedom and live under self-imposed rules, all the while God is waiting for us to ask so that He can say 'yes.'"—Kyle Idelman, author of Not a Fan and gods at War, teaching pastor at Southeast Christian Church
"Sometimes we can buy into the wrong notion that God is all about saying no to the things we desire in our life. Don't allow the wrong focus of who God is to prevent you from realizing all that He has planned for you. If you have forgotten that Jesus came to bring good news, that He has a plan for your life and loves you, then I hope you will read this book and open your life up to the extraordinary truth of God's 'yes' to you."—Pete Wilson, author of Let Hope In, founding and lead pastor of Cross Point Church

    Growing up, I always thought the Bible and God gave just a list of things I couldn't do. As I became a Christian I saw that God wanted the best for me and that He wasn't the God of no, but a God of Yes! This book is incredible. Definitely a great read and gift for friends/family.
