We all feel it.

The relentless pull of more.

It affects us in our finances and material possessions. The new car, the upgraded cell phone, or just a bit more space in our home.

The pull compels us in our jobs. Reach for that new promotion, open a new branch of the ministry, or it encourages you to take the risk you really should not.

From the moment we are born, the pull of more affects all of us.

I see it in my parenting, prompting my kids to work a little harder or succeed (in my eyes) a bit more on the sports field.

Unknowingly, unwittingly we are creating achievement addicts.

As we turn our attention to our spiritual lives, the draw of more sucks us in like a black hole envelops stars.

Greed

Today I am reviewing Margaret Feinberg’s book, The Organic God. I have heard Margaret’s name for a number of years via social media as well as through co-workers, yet, I never managed to read her writings.

I’m glad this changed.

Margaret is an incredible writer. She crafts word pictures and uses stories to the fullest, illustrating the truths she is bringing to light.

I’ve already referenced her in one previous post, using her elaboration on a verse in Proverbs to talk of the “not so nice parts of our lives.”

In this book, she defines the Organic God as one we pursue, yet is mysterious. Unlike other mysteries which confuse or discourage, the mystery of God draws us into a deeper pursuit of Him

Brand New

April 12, 2013

Fresh off the production floor from NoSuperHeroes is a brand new promo video for my book Death of the Modern Superhero: How Grace Breaks our Rules.

Take a look at the promo and share it with your friends.

Death Of The Modern Superhero  on Vimeo.

The book is selling better than I’d hoped at this stage and is being used in Bible schools, small groups, counseling ministries, seeker studies within JP Morgan Chase and even used to disciple converts from other religions!

One exciting development is the translation of the book into Dutch! Good things are happening as you help to spread the message of grace via NoSuperHeroes.

So keep reading. Keep sharing! And most of all, keep engaging in the dialogue around the message of grace!
