Product Description

In Every Good Thing, David W. Jones explains why we should be concerned with the material world--for our own good, for the good of our neighbors, and for the glory of God. Scripture frequently speaks about issues such as wealth and poverty, work and rest, and creation and stewardship, and Christians must understand the Bible's teaching on these topics to live a life after the example of Christ's. The world around us, here and now, is just as important for our lives as the world to come. God cares deeply about the material realm--and calls us to follow him in living a life of engagement with, not detachment from, the physical world.

Publisher's Description

The physical world around us should have just as much bearing on how Christians act and think as the life to come. But Christians often don't understand how the Bible speaks directly to this important aspect of everyday life.

In Every Good Thing, David W. Jones illustrates the wide variety of areas--wealth and poverty, tithing and creation-care, vocation and Sabbath--impacted by our understanding of the Bible's teaching on the material realm. This short book surveys key concepts and controversies on each topic, accompanied by Bible passages to help readers develop a more robust worldview of the physical world around us.

After all, Christians should take the life of Christ as an example for their own--and his life on earth reflected a deep concern for and engagement with the world in which he walked and breathed, worked and lived. So, too, God calls us to think biblically about how our beliefs impact our material lives.

Author Bio

David W. Jones serves as professor of Christian ethics, associate dean for graduate program administration, and director of the Th.M. program at Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary. He has authored or coauthored six books and more than a dozen articles that have appeared in various academic publications. He resides in North Carolina with his wife and children.

Editorial Reviews

"One grand mischaracterization of the Elizabethan Puritans was that they 'were so heavenly minded they were of no earthly good.' While largely wrong of them, there is an element of truth to the claim and all in the evangelical tradition that came from them. That is why a book like Every Good Thing is so timely and helpful. Even though believers in Christ are merely pilgrims in this world on a journey toward a future heavenly home, David W. Jones rightly grounds us in the present to remind us of the stewardship that is ours in the world we have been given for our own good and, even more, the good of others."
--Jason G. Duesing, Ph.D., provost and associate professor of historical theology, Midwestern Baptist Theological Seminary
"The tendency to emphasize the good of the spiritual realm to the neglect of the physical world has led many Christians to an unbiblical view of the world and a false dichotomy between the 'sacred' and 'secular.' In Every Good Thing, David W. Jones offers a helpful corrective to this tendency, grounding his arguments in a thoroughly biblical perspective, with significant implications for how Christians think about their calling, work, rest, wealth and poverty--in short, how we ought to think about our lives! Every Good Thing is an important introduction to these issues that will benefit readers greatly."
--Kenneth T. Magnuson, Ph.D., professor of christian ethics, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary
