Product Description

Society values stardom, and, as a Christian, you're not immune to that human desire for recognition and glory. Musician and pastor Paul Thorson, a self-admitted "show-off," knows from experience that Christians can become slaves to their image. Painting in the Dark reveals that worth doesn't come from what others think and has nothing to do with reputation, fame, performance, or image. The essential truth, according to Thorson, is "Not our performance, but the way we allow God in us to love others through us."

Using lively stories and a profoundly on-target perspective, Thorson says you'll find a new sense of self and a new sense of God when you get over yourself and start living beyond your image into the image of God. It is then that the pressure of being good enough comes off and the peace that passes all understanding takes over. When you give up the personal pursuit of glory, stop trying to please others and start fleeing the performance trap, then the real celebration begins.
