At a Glance

Spiritual Grit seeks a better outcome by delving into why Jesus sometimes chooses to inject hardship into our lives rather than remove it.


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.

Product Info


Why do some people thrive during challenges, and others don't?

The answer is grit: the strength at our core that fuels a scrappy response to threats, fear, confusion, and pain.

Two factors are central to growing a gritty core, but have remained under the radar: 1) A passion for something higher than yourself, and 2) Everyday life practices that help us nurture the strength we need to move through whatever life throws at us.

Spiritual Grit explores the foundation for these two factors, then offers an extensive menu of everyday life practices that Jesus modeled in his ministry, including:

  • Ways to access the strength needed to live a resilient life, through a dependent relationship with Jesus
  • Biblical stories of those who grew a "grit backbone" through their interactions with Jesus
  • A menu of life habits that fertilize grit, plus a method for identifying habits that undermine it
  • A way for readers to assess their own spiritual grit

Without Jesus, grit is just a gimmick. With Jesus, grit can infuse the world—and our lives—with hope.


"God calls us to a risky and sacrificial faith. And yet even Christians give into fear-mongering and the pitfall of "playing it safe." Where in the Bible does it say, "Don't take risks for your faith?" Which of Jesus' disciples avoided danger in witnessing to the risen Christ? Spiritual Grit is an excellent exploration of the mettle necessary for following Jesus, who literally loved us to death and who invites us on an often-reckless adventure to change the world for him."
