Item Description...
Overview
Had enough of looking for contentment in possessions and accomplishments? In moving essays, today's top contemporary Christian recording artists explore what it means to find fulfillment in being, not doing. "There's an art to being anxious for nothing. There's an art to being at peace with God, your neighbor, your world, and yourself. Oh what a great friend, follower, and citizen you are if you are at peace just being you. Start there, and you can go anywhere." -from the foreword by Charlie Peacock It's Not What You Do. It's Who You Are. In today's achievement-oriented culture, it can feel impossible to separate who we are from what we accomplish. We introduce ourselves by announcing what we do for a living. Endless "to do" lists drive us away from self-discovery and true contentment. We hope that our successes will cause our busyness to feel worthwhile, yet despite our accomplishments, we long for something more. Featuring original essays and stories from a diverse list of contributors including Jonathan Foreman (Switchfoot), Sara Groves, Matthew Odmark (Jars of Clay), Gloria Gaither, Don and Lori Chaffer (Waterdeep), Tammy Trent, and Linford Detweiler (Over the Rhine), The Art of Being explores what it really means to "be" who we are. Here you will find an encouraging, challenging companion on your journey toward discovering your true identity-and toward finding a satisfaction that lasts. Life Is Not a Resume Higher bank balances, stylish clothes, and popularity among our peers may look impressive on the surface, but these things don't satisfy our craving for contentment. True satisfaction is found when our spirit is fed with a sense of purpose. The stories and reflections in The Art of Being will inspire you to resist the disappointing pursuit of the temporal and explore a deeper understanding of who you are as the unique artwork of your Creator.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
The Art of Being, it's Ok  Mar 9, 2007
This book is a selection of short stories, essays, sermonettes, and an interview. There's enough variety in it to please anyone. The author's include a diverse group of recording musicians. All of whom are believers. The list of authors includes Paul Meaney (from MuteMath) and Jon Foreman (from Switchfoot). For the person with more traditional tastes in christian music there is an interview of Gloria Gaither. For the listner who finds him/herself in between those two extremes there are chapters by names such as Tammy Trent and a whatshisface (a guy from Jars of Clay.) Every experience written about is unique. Some of them are very personal. If you are searching for a way to be at peace with yourself, your place in the world, and your relationship to God this book will probably have some encouragement for you. If you don't like hearing about about the lives of contemporary musicians this book probably isn't for you but don't write it off without giving it a chance.
 
A valuable book to read and share  Mar 30, 2005
I bought this book because I am interested in the subject, especially from a Christian perspective. I appreciated the low price I got it for on this site, of course!
Anyway, I thoroughly enjoyed the book, and "gobbled it up" within a 6-hour drive. Some parts of it made me cry, because God used statements in it to powerfully minister His love to me. Each contributor in the book had at least one very unique and important thing to say on the subject of life as a Christian as well as life as a human being. I shared the book with a friend, who later told me pretty much the same things in terms of her reaction to it. I think it's a book to pass around.
