Editorial Reviews

Review

Praise for Divine Discontent

“Is it true that we all live in quiet desperation? Or can we truly sing that it is well with our souls? In Divine Discontent, Michael Youssef reminds us that the restlessness in our souls can actually draw us to God. By using the biographies of Scripture, Dr. Youssef illustrates that God’s peace, His perfect peace, is readily available to us all. If you are looking for real rest in your spirit, Divine Discontent is real comfort for your restless heart.”
–Janet Parshall, nationally syndicated talk show host

“With characteristic clarity and conviction, Michael Youssef takes us by the hand and chapter-by-chapter leads us from the turbulent and often treacherous dead-ends of life to the deep and settled peace that only God can give.”
–Dr. Joseph M. Stowell, president of Moody Bible Institute and author of The Trouble with Jesus


Praise for The Spirituality That Heals by Michael Youssef

“Michael Youssef leads us out of the shadowlands of superficial spirituality into the promised land of genuine sanctifying spirituality. Prepare to be challenged and changed!”
–Hank Hanegraaff, host of the Bible Answer Man radio program and author of The Prayer of Jesus

“In a broken, hurting world that longs for hope, Michael Youssef has provided a remedy for our souls that is both biblical and practical. Read this and embrace the healing power of God.”
–Dr. Joseph M. Stowell, president of Moody Bible Institute and author of The Trouble with Jesus

“Michael Youssef is one of the most gifted pastors of our generation. I recommend The Spirituality That Heals to all who seek the healing power of Jesus Christ.”
–Larry Burkett, author of Nothing to Fear and chairman of the board of Crown Financial Ministries

“Michael Youssef does an inspiring job of teaching the remarkable truth about the work of the Holy Spirit. His book will invite you to empty yourself and seek to be filled with God’s Spirit.”
–Nicky Cruz, international evangelist and author of One Holy Fire and Run, Baby, Run

From the Inside Flap

Your dissatisfaction with life can be a good thing.

Do you have a feeling that you can?t shake?that life could deliver much more than you?re experiencing right now?

The lack of peace might keep you up at night, or it could be a steady background hum that is not quieted by bigger accomplishments or more possessions. What you crave goes much deeper. You long for an end to the inner turmoil; you crave freedom from anxiety, guilt, anger, or fear.

People have sought the answer in career advancement, recreation, relationships, even religious devotion. But God?s Word demonstrates that dissatisfaction with life is a spiritual problem. It?s an inner thirst that can be quenched only by God.

Does contentment have to remain just out of reach, or can we arrive at a place of peace and rest? Let popular author and Bible teacher Michael Youssef introduce you to biblical characters whose lives demonstrate the redemptive power of Divine Discontent. These heroes of Scripture followed their inner restlessness back to God who, in his grace, invites all to enter his rest. Including you.

5.0 out of 5 stars peace in our time May 21, 2014
Format:Kindle Edition
this is a good book by Michael Youssef, a Pastor from Atlanta, GA. The author addresses why people are constantly searching, not happy , feeling unfulfilled. The root of this discontentment is because of the sin of adam and eve in the garden of eden. Because of this sin, we live in the city of man, The city of man is filled with materialism ,hardships and the worship of false idols with the absence of God. According to the author the key is to draw nearer to God through Jesus Christ, this provides the only true relief from what troubles man in todays city of man. Youssef states in Part 5-The End of Discontentment- that God has framed human history between two gardens, the earthly paradise of the Garden of Eden and the eternal joy of the garden city known as the New Jerusalem or Heaven. In that city we will dwell with Him for eternity and put to an end our restless wandering, our longing for more and our ongoing search for rest and belonging. As the author states on pg. 151 "one of the greatest challenges for Christians today is how to reside in the city of man while dwelling spiritually in the city of God. This book will provide insight into finding peace through God. It is well written and will make you think. I recommend it.

This book does a great job explaining why we often feel empty unfulfilled. We were made to have a personal relationship with God and we sometimes try to fill this need through earthly things when we are really longing to feel God. Michael Youssef does a great job of explaining where our citizenship and true home is in heaven.
