Intentional Faith: Aligning Your Life with the Heart of God

Allen Jackson. Nelson, $18.99 trade paper (228p) ISBN 978-1-4002-1725-0
Jackson (Standing Firm), senior pastor of the World Outreach Church in Murfreesboro, Tenn., provides Christian readers with 10 declarations to achieve spiritual growth and a deeper connection with God. He explains that “authentic intent is expressed with action,” and includes a 100-day faith plan to help readers develop a more intentional faith, including guidance for growing spiritually, daily prayer, New Testament study, and tutelage to younger generations. Sharing personal stories, his experience as a pastor, and examples from Jesus’s life, Jackson illustrates that “an active prayer life leads to a vital connection with God, and that every good blessing, every need, every open door comes from God.” He also emphasizes the significance of practicing forgiveness and cultivating generosity—not only financially but with time and resources. He defines what it means to “finish well,” or to handle difficult moments one decision at a time, and emphasizes how intentional faith can positively impact families, churches, and communities. He encourages both experienced Christian readers and those who may be questioning their faith to step out of their “comforts and routines—and into a living faith, with benefits here on earth and for eternity.” Readers looking to reinvigorate their prayer and Bible study will relish Jackson’s comforting work.
