God wants me to try harder. God blesses me when I'm good and punishes me when I'm bad. God is angry with me.

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. The path to spiritual transformation begins here.

Turning to the Gospels, Smith invites you to put your ideas to the test to see if they match up with what Jesus himself reveals about God. Once you've discovered the truth in Scripture, Smith leads 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.

At the end of each chapter you'll find an opportunity for soul training, engaging in spiritual practices that reinforce the biblical messages on your mind and heart. Because the best way to make a complete and lasting change is to go through the material in community, small group discussion questions also accompany each chapter. Those who are leading apprentice groups will also find additional help and opportunities to interact with other leaders at the Apprentice website.

This deep, loving and transformative book will help you discover the narratives that Jesus lived by--to know the Lord he knew and the kingdom he proclaimed--and to practice spiritual exercises that will help you grow in the knowledge of our good and beautiful God.

    " Excellent book. His book is well written and easy to read. It goes through many false narratives that we have about God and then gives us spiritual disciplines to practice. I read this book with my life group and we enjoyed the reading. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Zac | 2/11/2011

    " The content itself is nothing out of the ordinary, though the way he writes it and the soul training he prescribes is especially helpful. It's probably best read with at least one person. "

    " First in a series of 3, amazing series! "

    " An excelent book. A must read for any follow of Christ. "

  • 2 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 52 out of 5 Janna | 10/25/2010

    " I enjoyed this book because it guided our small group to some really great conversations. I don't think I would've enjoyed it if I had read it on my own. This wasn't as inspiring or paradigm-shifting as the introduction led me to believe it would be, but it did make me reconsider some of my ideas. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Sara | 9/22/2010

    " It wasn't earth-shattering but somehow combining the exposure of false narratives we believe with known spiritual disciplines was refreshing. It was personally enriching, but I really think the most value came from going through this with a group, so read it! And do so with friends. :) "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Andrea | 7/14/2010

    " This is a book that will challenge your preconceived ideas about God. This book reinforces and clearly explains that God loves us and accepts us unconditionally... many times we box Him and His opinions in ... and it's not the truth about God. This book explains his heart for us. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Christine | 5/1/2010

    " I'm loving this book! Great reminders of the God we serve and practical ways we can really spend time enjoying Him :) "
