"And God saw that it was good..."
Look out over the world today, it seems a far cry from God's original declaration. Pain, conflict, and uncertainty dominate the headlines. Our daily lives are noisy and chaotic??filled with too much information and too little wisdom. No wonder we often find it easier to retreat into safe spaces, hunker down in likeminded tribes, and just do our best to survive life.
But what if God wants you to do more than simply survive? What if he wants you to thrive in this world, and be part of its redemption? What if you could rediscover the beauty and goodness God established in the beginning?

By learning the lost art of discernment, you can. Discernment is more than simply avoiding bad things; discernment actually frees you to navigate the world with confidence and joy by teaching you how to recognize and choose good things. When you learn discernment and develop a taste for all that's good, you will encounter God in remarkable new ways. Come, discover the God who not only made all things, but who will also make all things good once again.… (mere)

This readable book based on Philippians 4:8 is great for personal or group Bible study. Some may ask how an author can write an entire book on a single verse. The answer lies in the book's organization. Part one's chapters bear these titles: Taste and See, The Good Earth, and Worldly Wise; part two's are: Whatever Is True, Whatever Is Honorable, Whatever Is Just, Whatever Is Pure, Whatever Is Lovely, Whatever I Commendable; and part three's are: Every Good Gift and Our Common Good. i only discovered the questions for discussion when I got to the end of the e-book, but they help readers focus on the main point of the chapter. Sometimes the main point got lost in the personal illustrations when reading alone. I will look for other Bible studies by this author. ( )

When I saw Hannah Anderson wrote another book, I knew it was one I would want to read. I really liked her book Humble Roots that I read last fall.

Recently, I read through Philippians with some friends and in Philippians 4:8, we are called to think on ۝whatever is true, whatever is honorable, whatever is just, whatever is pure, whatever is lovely, whatever is commendable, if there is any excellence, if there is anything worthy of praise, think about these things.‰Û

In light of the previous chapters we know that we are to be kingdom minded, but what does this look like in our world today? How do we think on these things in a culture that is bombarding us with untruths that seem to support the opposite of the what this verse calls us to? Should we step aside and create a barrier for ourselves or should we move forward seeking out the good and beautiful in our world? Can we still honor God by doing this? These are all questions that Hannah answers in this book. She talks about how to have discernment in the world we live in by taking each one of the adjectives found in verse 8 and trying it back to real life examples.

It is possible to rejoice in the good AND be Kingdom minded.

If these are things that you have ever wondered or if you have seen this verse on coffee mugs, but never studied it or thought about the implications it has for your life go ahead and pick this book up.

I would rate this book 4.5 stars, the content is solid.

Thank you to @moodypublishers and #NetGalley for a free eArc in exchange for my honest review.
