...Comer wraps up his intricate argument with quotes from the Bible, as well as such writers as N.T. Wright, Miroslav Volf, and Dallas Willard, in support of his view that our redemptive work, alongside purposeful rest, prepares us to reign as God’s royal servants in the new creation that will be resurrected after evil is destroyed.

Synopsis

You’ve heard people say “Who you are matters more than what you do”. Does the Bible really teach that? 

In Garden City, popular pastor and speaker John Mark Comer gives a fresh take on our calling and our purpose, with a surprisingly counter-culture take. Through his creative and conversational style, Comer takes a good look at Genesis and the story of a man, a woman, and a garden. He unpacks God’s creation and his original intent for how we are meant to spend our time. Here, you’ll find answers to questions like “Does God care where I work?”  “What about what I do with my free time or how much rest I get?” “Does he have a clear direction for me?”

Practical and theologically rich, Garden City speaks to twenty and thirty-somethings who are figuring out next steps and direction in their lives. 

Garden City is the Purpose Driven Life for the next generation—the book that helps us answer why we are here and what should we do about it.
