Book Description:

Are you in financial trouble or a dead-end job? Single and wishing you were married? Married and wishing it was better? Longing for more security? When life gets tough, contentment is hard to find.

Contentment isn't found, however-it's learned, argues biblical counselor Robert Jones. In this pocket-sized exposition and application of Philippians 4:11-13, Jones draws parallels between the reader's life and the various forms of hardship that the apostle Paul faced. Amid these, we too can experience what Paul experienced: inner satisfaction, peace, and confidence in God's ability to care and provide.

Quick fixes fail, but Jones shows how, through the gospel, we can learn God-centered contentment each day.

Resources for Changing Lives provide book- and booklet-length counsel and guidance from a biblical perspective. Counselors including David Powlison, Paul David Tripp, and Ed Welch get to the heart of our struggles and help us understand the spiritual issues involved, guiding us to biblical truths and outcomes that honor God and teach us how to live.


Robert D. Jones (MDiv, Trinity Evangelical Divinity School; DMin, Westminster Theological Seminary; DTheol, University of South Africa) is associate professor of biblical counseling at The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary in Louisville and has served in pastoral ministry for over thirty years.
