Inter-Varsity Press Yearning

Popluar psychology says we should be fulfilled. Advertisement tease us with dozens of ways we can be fulfilled. Many preachers and books promise Christian fulfillment. Craig Barnes suggests we weren't created to be whole or complete. With a fresh reading of the early chapters of Genesis, he says that much of our pain and disillusionment arises from wrong expectations of the gospel and of life. Barnes writes for anyone who knows that faith must be tough enough to "hold up in the emergency rooms of life." But he doesn't merely help us face reality. He helps us see how our needs and limitations are gifts, the best opportunities we have to receive God's grace.
