The biblical practice of contentment can seem like a lost art. In our discontented age - characterised by impatience, overspending, grumbling, and unhappiness - it's hard to imagine what true contentment actually looks like. But even the apostle Paul said that he learned to be content in any and every circumstance. Paul's remarkable contentment was something grown and developed over time.
In this book, Erik Raymond helps us understand what biblical contentment is - the inward gracious spirit that joyfully rests in God's providence - and then how we learn it. Giving us practical guidance for growing in contentment in various areas of our lives, this book will encourage us to see contentment as a priority for all believers. By God's grace, we can anchor our joy in God Himself rather than our changing circumstances.
"Discontentment is one of my deepest struggles. What a joy, then, to have this author speak wisely, biblically, and pastorally about the value, the importance, and the pursuit of contentment." - Tim Challies, Blogger, Challies.com
