Product Description

Chasing "the good life"? There's just one problem---it doesn't exist! Pastor Sayers shows how the money-driven, media-generated illusions of airbrushed advertising, made-for-TV happy endings, carefully edited personal webpages, and self-centered belief systems are warping our expectations, breeding dissatisfaction, and sabotaging our faith. Encounter the real Savior and move beyond consumerism to conviction and community! 215 pages, softcover from Nelson.

Publisher's Description

What if you're living in the wrong reality?

Doesn't everyone want the good life these days? Our shopping mall world offers us a never-ending array of pleasures to explore. Consumerism promises us a vision of heaven on earth-a reality that's hyper-real. We've all experienced hyperreality: a candy so 'grape-ey' it doesn't taste like grapes any more; a model's photo so manipulated that it doesn't even look like her; a theme park version of life that tells us we can have something better than the real thing. But what if this reality is not all that it's cracked up to be? Admit it, we've been ripped off by our culture and its version of reality that leaves us lonely, bored, and trapped. But what's the alternative?

In The Trouble With Paris, pastor Mark Sayers shows us how the lifestyles of most young adults (19-35) actually work against a life of meaning and happiness to sabotage their faith. Sayers shows how a fresh understanding of God's intention for our world is the true path to happiness, fulfillment, and meaning.
