Chasing Contentment by Erik Raymond

The subtitle is “Trusting God in a Discontented Age,” which I'm sure everyone would agree that we live in discontented times. The book is a good reminder that being content doesn't mean we ignore those problems, but we can nevertheless rest in our sovereign God in the midst of suchissues.

Zach Fallon, high school pastor

If someone is looking for a new, solid book that offers an introductory level on the biblical storyline I would recommend Unfolding Grace (crossway.org/bibles/unfolding-gracehcj/), newly released from Crossway and also the workbook that goes with it. We are planning on using it in Project Discipleship with some of our high school students next semester.
