Beautiful People Don't Just Happen
We all carry regret, hurt, and fear. These are burdens that weigh us down and make us feel trapped.
In twenty-five years of pastoral ministry, Scott Sauls has come alongside countless individuals and communities through weary seasons and circumstances. From his own seasons of regret, hurt, and fear—including battles with anxiety and depression—he knows what it's like to be unfinished and on the mend under Jesus' merciful, mighty healing hand. Beautiful People Don't Just Happen reads like a field guide that can help you:
- Find hope in how God is drawn toward you, not appalled by you, in your sin and sorrow
- Practice emotional health with joy, gratitude, and lament
- Quiet shaming, wearying thoughts with God’s divine counter-voice
- Discover how the defining feeling of faith is not strength but dependent weakness
- Learn what the Bible calls “the secret of being content” in every circumstance
A deeply pastoral book.
[A]n extremely tender yet powerfully thoughtful volume. . . . I give this remarkable book a double thumbs-up!
This is a book that every Christian should read and read again.
I read everything I can find by Scott Sauls. . . . This might be his best book yet.
A Gentle Answer
In a defensive and divided era, how can followers of Jesus reveal a better way of living? How can they be the kind of people who, as Proverbs puts it, "turn away wrath?" A Gentle Answer points the way by helping readers receive Christ's own gentleness, nurture softened hearts in light of Christ's gentleness, forsake us-against-them postures, and embrace the gentle way. This book is especially for those who desire a more civil, countercultural way in a perpetually angry, attacking, outraged time.
I need two or three pages to adequately celebrate this book.
Sauls is the preeminent voice for fractured, polarized times.
A great, highly practical volume that points us to the tenderness of Jesus.
This book could not have come at a better time.
The aim of Irresistible Faith is to rekindle enthusiasm among Christians for the irresistibility of Jesus himself, and for the kind of life-giving community Jesus desires for those he loves. The book also aims to inspire Christians to go out into the world as a value-add — leaving people, places, and things better than they found them, all to the glory of God.
From Weakness to Strength
In this honest book, pastor and author Scott Sauls exposes the real struggles that Christian leaders and pastors regularly face. Sauls shares his own stories and those of other leaders from Scripture and throughout history to remind us that we are human, we are sinners, and we need Jesus to help us thrive as people and leaders.
Now more than ever, it’s easy to avoid people with whom we disagree or whose life experiences don’t mirror our own. Safe among like-minded peers and digital “friends,” we really don’t have to engage with those who can challenge and enhance our limited perspectives. Tragically, even the church can become a place that minimizes diversity and reinforces isolation.
Jesus Outside The Lines
Polarizing, us-against-them discussions divide us and distract us from thinking clearly and communicating lovingly with others. Scott Sauls, like many of us, is weary of the bickering and is seeking a way of truth and beauty through the conflicts. Jesus Outside the Lines presents Jesus as this way.
