Friend of Sinners: Why Jesus Cares More About Relationship Than Perfection

#ad
Thomas Nelson #ad - When we embrace the truth that we all need jesus equally and when we trust him to bring transformation in people’s hearts, we will walk as Jesus walked, experiencing the glory of God in our own lives and in the lives of those around us. He understood that the power within him was greater than the darkness around him, so he loved fearlessly.

Own The Moment: How to Live a Spiritual Life in a Secular World

#ad
Simon & Schuster #ad - How do you maintain your values—and pass them onto your children—in a society that worships money and sex and fame? How do you embrace your flaws in this Instagram era that exalts the appearance of perfection? How do you forget about “living the dream” and learn to embrace the beauty of your reality? These are just a few of the many important questions Lentz answers in Own The Moment—a powerful book that redefines not just Christianity but spirituality as a whole.

. In own the moment, he shares the unlikely and inspiring story of how he went from being an average teenager who couldn’t care less about church to leading one of the country’s fastest-growing congregations—how one day he is trying to convince a Virginia Beach 7-Eleven clerk to attend his service, and just a few years later he is baptizing a global music icon in an NBA player’s Manhattan bathtub.

Amid such candid personal tales, Lentz also offers illuminating readings of Bible passages and practical tips on how to live as a person of faith in an increasingly materialistic world. This engaging and inspirational book by Carl Lentz, spiritually-grounded, the rock star pastor of Hillsong NYC, shows us the way toward a more connected, and fulfilled life.

Own The Moment: How to Live a Spiritual Life in a Secular World #ad - When you think of a christian pastor, references the walking dead and black lives Matter in his sermons, you probably don’t envision a tattooed thirty-something who wears a motorcycle jacket, and every Sunday draws a standing-room only crowd to a venue normally used for rock concerts—in godless New York City, listens to hip-hop music, no less.

But then you clearly have never met Carl Lentz. As lead pastor of the first united states branch of global megachurch Hillsong, the former college basketball player is on a mission to make Christianity accessible in the 21st century.
