A Hunger for More: Finding Satisfaction in Jesus When the Good Life Doesn't Fill YouISBN: 9781433575105
How Our Hunger Leads Us Closer to Jesus
Many Christians-especially those who have grown up in the church-seem to have "good" lives, free from extreme hardship and scandalous sin. Yet even this good life leaves them longing. Regardless of our backgrounds and circumstances, all of us have a deep hunger that only Jesus can satisfy.
In this book, Amy DiMarcangelo invites readers to feast at the table of grace, where they will find God's vast glory and intimate care, his strength made perfect in weakness, and his gifts of joy and comfort. Even the most hungry Christians will be encouraged that they "may be filled with all the fullness of God" (Ephesians 3:19).

In each chapter her words serve to turn the diamond of the beauty of his character and promises. I found myself pausing my reading to stop and worship.
