Publisher's Summary

"I have never met a person whose goal was to ruin his or her life. We all want to be happy, and we want it all of the time."
So begins James Bryan Smith in The Good and Beautiful Life. The problem is, he tells us, we have bought into false notions of happiness and success. These self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying, worry, and judging. Eventually, we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.
Following the Sermon on the Mount, this follow-up to The Good and Beautiful God guides us to look behind these character flaws and to replace our false beliefs with Jesus' narratives about life in the kingdom of God.

Absolutely Transformative!

Content is spot on and takes the listener to a whole new dimension of gaining a relationship with Jesus.

Excellent material, dull narrator

I used this audiobook in conjunction with the printed text. While I did not love the narration, the material is excellent and listening to a chapter a week was a good way to get an overview of the study. Most weeks I returned to my printed copy for further review. I was also meeting with a group to discuss the material.

Almost every week as I listened to the chapter I found myself saying, "I don't have a problem with this particular aspect of living a Christian life." Then I asked God to show me if there was anything I needed to change. Don't pray this prayer unless you really desire change! Every week there was something and I am still working on some of these things.
