Meet the new cultural darling: Grit—that quality at our core that allows us to persevere in the face of fear, confusion, and pain. National best-selling books and viral TED Talks have launched the subject into the stratosphere, touting it as the tool for personal and professional success.
But Rick Lawrence, podcast host and author of The Jesus-Centered Life, isn’t content to let culture have the final word on grit. Because without connecting grit to a passion for Jesus, it’s just a self-help trend doomed to disappoint.
Spiritual Grit seeks a better outcome by exploring why Jesus sometimes chooses to inject hardship into our lives rather than remove it. From the value of taking risks to the challenge of letting loved ones take personal responsibility during adversity, Lawrence paves an insightful and practical path toward greater endurance, confidence, and character.
