Singing in Babylon: Finding Purpose in Life's Second Choices [9780830778713]

(No reviews yet) Write a Review

Everyone has to live with second choices--events and circumstances that they would not choose, some trivial, some tragic. Daniel was a man whose life was filled with second choices, but he did more than just survive; he stayed faithful to God and thrived. So what is there to learn from his story in Scripture? Pastor and author Jeff Lucas challenges readers to ask, "How can we, like Daniel, be faithful in the 'Babylon' of second choices?"

Down-to-earth but inspirational, Singing in Babylon explores how the reader, like Daniel, can find purpose and meaning in life's second choices.

 

From the back cover:

Because life is what happens when you're expecting something else

Is your life different from what you thought it would be? Singing in Babylon takes us on a practical, biblical and hope-filled journey to finding purpose and staying faithful, even when life doesn't go as planned. Drawing on the remarkable biblical story of Daniel - who lived most of his life in circumstances he did not want - Jeff Lucas explores how to:

- Recognise the difference between our expectations and the Bible's expectations for a Christian life.
- Make sense of God's purpose in loss and disillusionment
- Realize we live in the true kingdom, not the magic kingdom, without becoming cynical.

How can we, like Daniel, follow God in the 'Babylon' of living a life we would not have chosen? Singing in Babylon is a timely, provocative look at how to find genuine joy even in the midst of life's disappointment.
