"Today's teenagers are pitched this and that all day long, but rarely are they exposed to a truly compelling and contemporary way of living that is somehow both counterintuitive and so obviously biblical."
Mark Oestreicher—Partner, The Youth Cartel
Since the day you were born, you've been told to pursue more. Ads from every TV, radio, newspaper, magazine, billboard, and website constantly scream at you with the message that more is better.
But more is not necessarily better, declares Joshua Becker, a pastor, author, and blogger. There's a far better way to live life, he says—a way that recognizes the empty promises of consumerism and champions the pursuit of living simply and scripturally.
In Living With Less
, Joshua will guide you through biblical teachings on possessions and his own personal experience with minimalism—living with only the essential. You'll see how his life was transformed by this Jesus-centered choice that rejects the flow of our culture. This book will challenge you to spend your hours, energy, and resources in ways that draw you closer to the heart of Jesus.
JOSHUA BECKER and his young family were just your typical, run-of-the-mill American family until they were turned on to minimalism during a conversation with their neighbor. Through his website (becomingminimalist.com), Joshua has inspired millions around the world to find more life by owning less. Joshua is currently a pastor in Peoria, Arizona, and has served as a pastor of student ministries for the past 14 years. Most recently, he pastored one of the largest youth ministries in New England while serving at Essex Alliance Church, Essex, Vermont.
