Summary:
The biblical practice of contentment can seem like a lost art -- something reserved for spiritual giants but out of reach for the rest of us. In our discontented age -- characterized by impatience, overspending, grumbling, and unhappiness -- it's hard to imagine what true contentment actually looks (and feels) 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 Chasing Contentment, 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, it is possible to pursue the high calling of contentment and anchor our joy in God himself rather than our changing circumstances.
