Youve heard people say "Who you are matters more than what you do". Does the Bible really teach that?
In Garden City, popular pastor and speaker John Mark Comer gives a fresh take on our calling and our purpose, with a surprisingly counter-culture take. Through his creative and conversational style, Comer takes a good look at Genesis and the story of a man, a woman, and a garden. He unpacks Gods creation and his original intent for how we are meant to spend our time. Here, youll find answers to questions like "Does God care where I work?" "What about what I do with my free time or how much rest I get?" "Does he have a clear direction for me?"
Practical and theologically rich, Garden City speaks to twenty and thirty-somethings who are figuring out next steps and direction in their lives.
Garden City is the Purpose Driven Life for the next generationthe book that helps us answer why we are here and what should we do about it.
John Mark Comer lives, works, and writes in the urban core of Portland, Oregon, with his wife, Tammy, and their three children, Jude, Moses, and Sunday. He is the pastor for teaching and vision at Bridgetown: A Jesus Church, which is part of a family of churches in Portland. Before planting Bridgetown, John Mark was the college pastor at a megachurch and played in a band. John Mark has a master's degree in biblical and theological studies from Western Seminary and is the author of Loveology and My Name is Hope.
There is an awakening happening in the Western church. We are rediscovering that Gods mission includes all of creation, not just church work, and he intends for us to be flourishing people, not just religious disciples. John Mark Comers book continues this awakening with accessible insight into forgotten biblical truths about the importance of our identity as women and men created in Gods image, the value of our vocations in the world, and a ravishing vision of the beautiful future we are building with God today. Everyone who reads this book will see themselves, their work, and their world with new eyes.
His writing is informal and infectious, growing on the reader as the topics get more intimate.
Does what we do for work --- in an office, factory, and kitchen, or studio--- matter to God? Is the Lords work relegated to those who receive paychecks from churches and nonprofits? In Garden City, John Marks unique knack for distilling lofty academic concepts into pragmatic, reader-friendly prose focuses on the hugely important and often overlooked interconnectedness of faith and vocation. Knowing him like we do, its easy to see his profound desire to know and live the way of Jesus, and to pursue work that matters to Gods redemptive plan, poured out on these pages.
