The God Pocket Bruce Wilkinson Hardcover, 144 pp., $12.99 Multnomah Books (October 11, 2011)
What if you could take something out of your pocket today that would make God wonderfully personal and absolutely real to a person who, only minutes earlier, had been secretly calling out to God for help, for an answer, for any shred of evidence that God even cares? It’s small enough to fit in your wallet or purse, yet it’s big enough to change someone’s life—starting with yours. In The God Pocket, Bruce Wilkinson tells you what that little something is, and how God is ready to reveal Himself through you to a world in need…starting now.
Women are bombarded with the lie that how we look is far more important than who we are. It’s time for a clarion call back to the truth. Journey with gifted storyteller Kim Meeder as she encourages women to see that true value is defined by our Creator and that real beauty isn’t a look, it’s an action. It can be found by making one crucial, life-defining choice: to lay down selfish desires, pick up your sword, and fight for those who are losing their battle for hope. As you do, fierce beauty is revealed—along with lasting value, fulfillment, and joy.

Desiring God is a paradigm-shattering work that dramatically alters common perspectives on relating to God. Piper reveals that there really is no need to choose between duty and delight in the Christian life. In fact, for the follower of Jesus, delight is the duty as Christ is most magnified in His people when they are most satisfied in Him.
