"I have never met a person whose goal was to ruin his or her life. We all want to be happy, and we want it all of the time."
So begins James Bryan Smith in The Good and Beautiful Life. The problem is, he tells us, we have bought into false notions of happiness and success. These self-centered decisions lead us further into the vices that cause ruin: anger, lust, lying, worry, and judging. Eventually, we find ourselves living a beautifully packaged life of self-destruction.
Following the Sermon on the Mount, this follow-up to The Good and Beautiful God guides us to look behind these character flaws and to replace our false beliefs with Jesus' narratives about life in the kingdom of God.

This is the second book in the apprentice series by James Smith. Like the first book, this book is excellent and well worth your time. It's the kind of book you want to read more than once.
It was painfully hard to listen to this narration. I struggled to finish. It's a real shame because this series is fantastic, life-changing actually. I'll stick with hardcover, like I did with the first book, on book three.
Extremely insightful and constructive book. As good as a listener will make it by taking the lessons to heart and applying them.
