Are you tired of living by the world's definition of success and want to succeed God's way? Xulon author Ava Semerau's And God Was Pleased: Biblical Principles for Creating Christian Success (paperback, 978-1-60477-742-0) is an entirely new song for Christians to sing. The book was crafted in the hope that incorporating even one of its principles into our lives will change us and the way we live, yet incorporating all of them will lead to greater and greater success as we intentionally and deliberately live to please God.
Says the author, "Pleasing God may seem like an impossible task, but it's not. As Christians, we know nothing is impossible for God, success included! In the stories, characters, and lessons of the Bible, God provides us with actionable principles of Christian success. We can integrate these principles into our lives, we can live them every day--and we can please God. And that's real success!"
The book was conceived and written within the context that "either you see God's hand everywhere or you see it nowhere; there doesn't seem to be a lot of middle ground," the author says. The seeds of the story traveled with her across the Middle East, Europe, the United States, and the South Pacific. Every new location brought new insight into what it means to live a worthy life and what pleasing God can look like in the real world.
