Date: April 2020
Duration: 4 hours 25 minutes
Teaching pastor at the influential New Life Church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, Daniel Grothe explains the Bible's blueprint for becoming the kind of person who can deal with all of life's challenges.
Some people have learned how to live. They can handle all that life brings. They are composed. They radiate strength. They are whole, with lives worth emulating, and when they speak people listen. They are, in a word, wise. How did these people get wisdom? And perhaps more importantly, how can we?
In his long-awaited first audiobook, Daniel Grothe of New Life church in Colorado Springs, Colorado, shows us how to get wisdom for ourselves by examining what the Bible has to say about it and by providing practical steps for acquiring it, among them:
- learning to ask for help,
- loving Scripture,
- going to Church,
- living quietly,
- and, above all, seeking those who are themselves wise.
Drawing on Scripture and his own experience learning from his friend and mentor Eugene Peterson, Grothe shows how our lives can be secured by the resource that will keep us from collapsing under the onslaught of the difficulties of life. Wisdom is available to us. It takes work to pursue it. Chasing Wisdom reveals how.
'In this new audiobook on Christian living, narrator Jakob Lewis brings a calming yet engaging voice to lessons on how to prepare for difficulties that can arise even in a meaningful life. Whether it's an unexpected scandal, illness, or (heaven forbid) even a church shooting, life on earth can be unpredictable. This audiobook posits that there are some things listeners can do to prepare for the spontaneous happenings that can occur while living a life in Christ. Lewis's voice guides listeners through familiar biblical lessons, accompanied by helpful advice and real-life examples of how to apply them. For listeners who regularly listen to Christian audio, many of the lessons will seem familiar. Nonetheless, Lewis's performance makes the experience an engaging meditation of the spirit.' - Audiofile Magazine
