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.
Spiritual Grit shares:
• Biblical stories of those who grew a "grit backbone" as a result of their interactions with Jesus
• A menu of life habits that fertilize grit
• A method for identifying habits that undermine grit
• An exclusive Spiritual Grit Assessment to help readers develop grit
Without Jesus, grit is just a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world--and our lives--with hope.
Spiritual Grit is ideal for Christians who feel stuck in their personal trajectory, for parents interested in helping their kids develop spiritual grit, and for anyone wanting to invest in their spiritual, emotional, and intellectual growth.
