If You Love Jesus... / Anfenson-Vance, Deborah / (PB/1988-1988/B+/USED)



*Condition Note: This book is in very good condition.*


"Lately I've been thinking about the things I own, which gives me a lot to think about. Not that I'm rich or anything; I just have a lot of stuff. I own a basement full of stuff, a main floor full of stuff, and a second floor full of stuff, and my heart quails at the thought of dusting it, let alone moving it. Most of the time I feel less like a queen in her counting house and more like a sweaty tourist lugging three suitcases and a clothesbag across endless expanses of international airport linoleum."

This book comes to readers like a fresh breeze and a cool drink after a day of spring cleaning. Deborah Anfenson-Vance, assistant editor of the Adventist Review, has brought together 26 beautifully crafted articles about choosing between the stuff we need and the stuff we do not. 

She never preaches. She simply writes with sparkling humor about what she has observed in her own life. She may start with breakfast cakes or a haphazardly dressed husband or a friend who attends funerals as a hobby. Then she hold this experience up to the Light of the World, and shows us why some "thing" in life deserve our care and attention. These things may not be tangible. They may be simple and ordinary. But they are pieces of eternity.
