Product Description

None of us is exempt from the significance pursuit. Our problem is that too often we look for significance in all the wrong places. Joe Stowell says even Christians are tempted to pursue prosperity, power, position, belonging, identity, and affirmation in hopes of securing a sense of value and worth. In Perilous Pursuits, Joe Stowell identifies the biblical place to find significance - in the person of Jesus Christ.

Publisher's Description

Ever since birth we've been told, "we're nobody unless we're number one." But now that we've so dutifully mastered the ability to defend our self-worth, this book shows why we must learn to forget it and redirect search for significance to the one true source of value: Jesus Christ.
