246: “Never Settle For Normal” with Jonathan Parnell
5 days ago
Many people in our world are lacking true joy and satisfaction, longing for "something more" but so many of them end up settling for a sub-par life and sub-par spirituality, simply because they do not know the true source of joy and satisfaction.
Furthermore, there are many genuine Christians that do not understand or value certain key doctrines and philosophies simply because they haven't been taught those truths and ideas in a manner that is accessible. In this episode, Kenny interviews pastor and author Jonathan Parnell about these issues and they discuss how Jonathan tackles these trends in his newest book "Never Settle for Normal: The Proven Path to Significance and Happiness."
Jonathan is the lead pastor of Cities Church in Minneapolis–St. Paul, where he lives with his wife, Melissa, and their seven children. His book "Never Settle for Normal" is not a self-help book, neither is it just another run-of-mill "enrichment book, but instead it is a Gospel-filled book, packed with transcendent Biblical truths, but written in a manner that can be easily digested by just about any person, regardless of where they are in their faith journey.
Jonathan Parnell is also the co-editor of Designed for Joy: How the Gospel Impacts Men and Women, Identity and Practice (2015), and the co-author of How to Stay Christian in Seminary (2014). He has also published a collection of devotional essays under the title, Reading to Walk: Meditations for the Life of Faith (2014).
