Description - A World According to God by Martha Ellen Stortz

Many Christians struggle to make the connection between our faith and the rest of our lives, particularly moral issues large and small. We inhabit a world, says Martha Ellen Stortz, that is split into two parts: one presided over by advice columnists and the media, the other a world according to God. But that world according to God is not always easy to discern. What does it mean, indeed, to live with God as our touchstone? How does that affect the way we behave, our identity, and the way we see the world? Martha Ellen Stortz explores essential Christian practices of discipleship such as baptism, prayer, communion, forgiveness, and fidelity to help readers understand more deeply what it means to live in "a world according to God." The book makes the connections between Christian practices and the moral life in a way that will help believers retrieve both a sense of the sacred and a commitment to the world, and that will strengthen us so that we can live according to their most profound beliefs. Filled with lively anecdotes and fresh interpretations informed by solid theological understanding the book offers new insights into what it means to put faith at the center of life.
