Swenson does a great job of breaking down the concept of contentment and giving it biblical, historical, and modern context.While I can’t say [...]

    I enjoyed reading this book. Having contentment doesn't mean that we shouldn't have spiritual life goals, responsibilities, or family issues, it just means that we need to continue to have fruitful priorities by focusing our work towards God.

If you've ever felt like life was not delivering to you what it should, this book is for you. If you have someone in your life that is striving for more to the point of obsession, then this book is for you. A [...]

    Good. I found the discussion on contentment to be very helpful and informative. I appreciated his Biblical approach to it and have used the content numerous times in conversation and presentation since reading it.
