Who are you becoming? That was the question nagging pastor and author John Mark Comer. By outward metrics, everything appeared successful. But inwardly, things weren't pretty. So he turned to a trusted mentor for guidance and heard these words: 'Ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life. Hurry is the great enemy of the spiritual life.' It wasn't the response he expected, but it continues to be the answer he needs.
Too often we treat the symptoms of toxicity in our modern world instead of trying to pinpoint the cause. A growing number of voices are pointing at hurry, or busyness as a root of much evil. Within the pages of this book, you'll find a compelling emotional and spiritual case against hurry and in favour of a slower, simpler way of life.
“Live No Lies is brilliant, deep, scriptural, and will equip you to face the enemy and fight.”—Jennie Allen, New York Times bestselling author of Get Out of Your Head
We are at war. Not with a foreign government or domestic terrorists or a creepy new artificial intelligence hell-bent on taking over the world. No, it’s a war we feel deep inside our own chests: we are at war with lies.
The problem isn’t so much that we tell lies but that we live them. We let them into our bodies, and they sabotage our peace. All around us in the culture and deep within our own body memories are lies: deceptive ideas that wreak havoc on our emotional health and spiritual well-being, and deceptive ideas about who God is, who we are, and what the good life truly is.
The choice is not whether to fight or not fight, but whether we win or surrender.
Ancient apprentices of Jesus developed a paradigm for this war; they spoke of the three enemies of the soul: the devil, the flesh, and the world. Live No Lies taps into this ancient wisdom from saints of the Way and translates the three enemies for the modern era, with all its secularism and sophistication. As a generation, we chuckle at the devil as a premodern myth, we are confused by Scripture’s teaching on the flesh in an age where sensual indulgence is a virtue not a vice, and we have little to no category for the New Testament concept of the world.
In this provocative and practical book, bestselling author John Mark Comer combines cultural analysis with spiritual formation. He identifies the role lies play in our spiritual deformation and lays out a strategic plan to overcome them.
Do you feel the tug-of-war in your own heart, the inner conflict between truth and lies? The spirit and the flesh? The Way of Jesus and the world? It’s time to start winning. It’s time to live no lies...
God Has a Name is a simple yet profound guide to understanding God in a new light--focusing on what God says about himself. This one shift has the potential to radically alter how you relate to God, not as a doctrine, but as a relational being who responds to you in an elastic, back-and-forth way.
In God Has a Name, John Mark Comer takes you line by line through Exodus 34:6-8--Yahweh's self-revelation on Mount Sinai, one of the most quoted passages in the Bible. Along the way, Comer addresses some of the most profound questions he came across as he studied these noted lines in Exodus, including:
- Why do we feel this gap between us and God?
- Could it be that a lot of what we think about God is wrong? Not all wrong, but wrong enough to mess up how we relate to him?
- What if our "God" is really a projection of our own identity, ideas, and desires?
- What if the real God is different, but far better than we could ever imagine?
No matter where you are in your spiritual journey, the act of learning who God is just might surprise you--and change everything.
You've heard people say, "Who you are matters more than what you do." But does the Bible really teach us that? Join pastor and bestselling author John Mark Comer in Garden City as he guides twenty- and thirty-somethings through understanding and embracing their God-given calling.
In Garden City, John Mark Comer gives a surprisingly countercultural take on the typical "spiritual" answer the church gives in response to questions about purpose and calling. Comer explores Scripture to discover God's original intent for how we're meant to spend our time, reshaping how you view and engage in your work, rest, and life.
In these pages, you'll learn that, ultimately, what we do matters just as much as who we are. Garden City will help you find answers to questions like:
- Does God care where I work?
- Does he have a clear direction for me?
- How can I create a practice of rest?
Praise for Garden City:
"In Garden City, John Mark Comer takes the reader on a journey--from creation to the final heavenly city. But the journey is designed to let each of us see where we are to find ourselves in God's good plan to partner with us in the redemption of all creation. There is in Garden City an intoxication with the Bible's biggest and life-changing ideas."
--Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

Loveology is just that---a theology of love.
With an autobiographical thread that turns a book into a story, pastor and speaker John Mark Comer shares about what is right in male/female relationships---what God intended in the Garden. And about what is wrong---the fallout in a post-Eden world.
Loveology starts with marriage and works backward. Comer deals with sexuality, romance, singleness, and what it means to be male and female; ending with a raw, uncut, anything goes Q and A dealing with the most asked questions about sexuality and relationships.
This is a book for singles, engaged couples, and the newly married---both inside and outside the church---who want to learn what the Scriptures have to say about sexuality and relationships. For those who are tired of Hollywood’s propaganda, and the church’s silence. And for people who want to ask the why questions and get intelligent, nuanced, grace-and-truth answers, rooted in the Scriptures.
¿Sientes el peso de la guerra en tu propio corazón? ¿El conflicto entre la verdad y la mentira, el espíritu y la carne? ¿El camino de Jesús y el camino del mundo? Es tiempo de empezar a ganar, es tiempo de vivir sin mentiras...
Estamos en guerra. No con otro país ni con terroristas domésticos, ni con una nueva y siniestra inteligencia artificial, sino contra las mentiras. La decisión no es entre pelear o no pelear, sino entre ganar o rendirnos.
El problema no es que digamos mentiras, es que terminamos viviéndolas
Siguiendo las enseñanzas de los discípulos de Jesús y aplicándolas al mundo moderno, el autor bestseller John Mark Comer combina el análisis cultural con la formación espiritual e identifica el rol que juega la mentira en nuestras vidas y cómo devasta nuestro bienestar emocional. Este provocativo y práctico libro ofrece la estrategia para combatirla, para no permitir que sabotee nuestra paz.
“Vivir sin mentiras es brillante, profundo, escritural y te armará para enfrentar al enemigo y pelear”-Jennie Allen, autora de Controla tu mente, bestseller del New York Times.
Rastlosigkeit ist der größte Feind für unser geistliches Leben. Das sagt Dallas Willard. Und John Mark Comer merkt selbstkritisch: »Ja, trifft auf mich zu.«
Woran du Rastlosigkeit erkennst? An chronischem Zeitmangel. An Gedankenkarussells, wenn du eigentlich ausruhen willst. An dem penetranten Gefühl von leeren Tanks – emotional, geistlich, körperlich – trotz Inputüberfluss. An Performance-Druck und der Überforderung mit Beziehungen im »real life«. Und wenn du voller geistlichem Tatendrang auf To-dos surfst wie auf der perfekten Welle. Trifft auch auf dich zu? Dann ist dieses Buch für dich!

The late 1930s were a tumultuous time in America. Fear and anxiety were rampant. Enter Orson Welles, director of a new radio program, who had just bought the rights to H. G. Wells's novel The War of the Worlds and updated the setting from Victorian England to current-day New Jersey...
Most Americans weren't listening to Welles's show when it started. They were listening to a more popular program which ended at 8:15 pm. Around 8:16, thousands of people turned the dial and were shocked by a realistic-sounding news reports of aliens invading the Eastern Seaboard, complete with an emergency broadcast from an actor whose voice mimicked President Roosevelt's. The result was pandemonium. Urbanites fled in terror. People committed suicide. Looting broke out. It being America, men got out their guns and made ready to make a final stand...
The story shows us how powerful ideas can be. This is something our enemy understands all too well. Satan, "the father of lies," wields the weapons of deception, striking when we are most vulnerable. John Mark Comer reveals how deceptive ideas are at work on our souls, and provides practical tools to help you recognize these enemies, resist the lies they try to make you believe, and experience the peace that God intends you to have.

Un Bestseller de la Asociación de Editoriales Cristianas (EPAC)• Un alegato emocional y espiritual contra la prisa y a favor de una forma de vida más sencilla y más lenta.
"Siendo alguien muy familiarizado con la enfermedad de la prisa, me doy cuenta de que necesitaba este libro urgentemente ". -Scott Harrison, autor de Thirst / Sed, bestseller del New York Times .
"¿En quién me estoy convirtiendo?"
Esa pregunta le molestaba e incomodaba constantemente al pastor y autor John Mark Comer. En el exterior parecía muy exitoso pero, por dentro, las cosas no lucían muy bien. Así que se dirigió a su mentor en busca de orientación y le escuchó decir estas palabras:
“Elimina, sin piedad, la prisa de tu vida. La prisa es el gran enemigo de la vidaespiritual”.
No era la respuesta que esperaba oír,pero fue y sigue siendo la respuesta que necesitaba. Con frecuencia, tratamos los síntomas tóxicos de nuestras vidas modernas, en lugar de identificar la causa. Un número creciente de voces están señalando a la prisa o el ajetreo como la raíz de muchos males.
En este libro, encontrarás una fascinante hoja de ruta para mantenerse emocionalmente saludable y espiritualmente vivo dentro del caos de nuestro mundo moderno.

The five sessions start with God’s design for marriage and works backward, dealing with sexuality, romance, singleness, and what it means to be male and female.

As you walk through this five-week study, you will come to better understand what God fully intended back in the garden. By comprehending the brilliance behind God’s original plan for love and marriage and sex and romance—if we can redefine that fuzzy, amorphous, confusing word “love” and look at it through the lens of Jesus—your marriages and relationships will be radically altered as a result.

Staggering numbers of modern Americans fight anxiety and depression on a daily basis. In 2010, there were 253 million prescriptions for antidepressants in the U.S. alone. That's in a nation of 311 million people. And the battle is nothing new. My Name is Hope is the story of one follower of Jesus who went through the horrors of anxiety and depression and came out the other side. It is his ruthlessly authentic and scripturally authoritative account of prophets and poets, mothers and fathers, and even a Messiah who all came up against anxiety and depression.
"With obvious relevance and prophetic resonance," My Name is Hope "speaks needed truth into the over-stressed, over-medicated reality of our lives and culture. It is a book that will awaken and guide many towards a return home to the hope that is ours in Jesus."
