We all have ideas that we tell ourselves about God and how he works in our lives. Some are true, but many are false. James Bryan Smith believes those thoughts determine not only who we are, but how we live. In fact, Smith declares, the most important thing about a person is what they think about God. In "The Good and Beautiful God" (InterVarsity, ISBSN # 0-8308-3531-8), Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Then he'll lead you through a process of spiritual formation that includes specific activities aimed at making these new narratives real in your body and soul as well as your mind.
