In the first hour, Gary Thomas, bestselling author and international speaker will be chatting about his new book, Cherish: The one word that changes everything for your Marriage.
In the second hour we hear from John Thornton about his book, Jesus’ Terrible Financial Advice: Flipping the Tables on Peace, Prosperity, and the Pursuit of Happiness.
He has written 18 books, which have sold over 1 million copies and have been translated into more than a dozen languagesHis writings have established him as a thought-leader in the areas of marriage, parenting and spiritual formation. His book Sacred Marriage has sold more than 700,000 copies, and its accompanying devotional was an ECPA Gold Medallion Award finalist.
Those are the powerful words of bestselling author Gary Thomas in his newest book—Cherish. And in a world desperate for marriage redemption, it is needed now more than ever.
Thomas shows that although there are a countless number of marriages consisting of two people just going through the motions, there are real ways this pattern can be reversed: when husbands and wives learn to cherish one another in proven, loving, and everyday actions and words.
Through personal stories and real world examples, Thomas proves what husbands and wives can begin doing today to turn their marriage around—even a marriage marred by neglect and disrespect.
It was the recipe for a great book. John and his wife—both financial experts—had cut their income by 80% to pursue more meaningful lives. Within six years they had two kids, were debt-free, went on several vacations, and doubled their net worth. John was ready to share the biblical principles that made this possible.
But he couldn’t. After reviewing Scripture’s teaching on money—over 1,300 verses—he realized he had missed something big.
Jesus’ Terrible Financial Advice turns even conventional Christian wisdom on its head. While it answers many of the practical questions we have—like does Jesus want me to be rich or poor? Should I give to everybody who asks? Is it wrong to save?—it goes beyond these concerns. It asks bigger questions, gives bolder answers, and offers a more comprehensive view of stewardship. Follow Jesus’ “terrible” (shocking, otherworldly) financial advice, and you’ll have what money can’t buy: purpose.
