Publisher's Description

You’ve 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 God’s creation and his original intent for how we are meant to spend our time. Here, you’ll 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 generation—the book that helps us answer why we are here and what should we do about it.

Editorial Reviews

In Garden City John Mark Comer takes the reader on a journey--- from creation to the final heavenly city. But the journey is designed to let each of us see where we are to find ourselves in God’s good plan to partner with us in the redemption of all creation. Smack-dab in the middle of this set of ideas is Comer’s excellent sketch of work, a sketch I find both pastorally mature and an exhortation to each of us to know that all we do has value before God. There is in Garden City an intoxication with the Bible’s biggest and life-changing ideas.
There is an awakening happening in the Western church. We are rediscovering that God’s mission includes all of creation, not just church work, and he intends for us to be flourishing people, not just religious disciples. John Mark Comer’s book continues this awakening with accessible insight into forgotten biblical truths about the importance of our identity as women and men created in God’s 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 Lord’s work” relegated to those who receive paychecks from churches and nonprofits? In Garden City, John Mark’s 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, it’s easy to see his profound desire to know and live the way of Jesus, and to pursue work that matters to God’s redemptive plan, poured out on these pages.
