The Cure

From time to time, I might bring attention to a book recommendation.  There are a handful of books that have had a great enough impact on me that I read them every couple of years or so.  I mentioned one of these books this last Sunday and a number of you have shown interest in reading it for yourself.  The book is called “The Cure” and I can’t recommend it highly enough.  I first read it in its original version, which was called, “TrueFaced”.  The main premise is the to very different underlying motives we tend to live by: our determination to please God or to trust Him.  One results in a striving that never feels it has done enough to please Him and the other results in a trust that experiences His full pleasure–His amazing grace.  Whichever one we live by will shape the way we do everything-our relationships, our work, our worship, etc.  It’s not a big book and it is very readable.  It even has pictures and I believe that it is even supplemented by videos you can watch online that unpack each chapter even more.  You can find the book here.  I hope you read it and that it blesses you and deepens your relationship with God and others.
