PURSUIT OF THE GOOD LIFE: Advancing on your spiritual journey
There are many Christians who want to know how to approach God more effectively. God has made a way for us to meet Him and has created a map for us to follow. Using the tabernacle of Moses, Ted Haggard shows how God has invited us into His presence and given us a road map to becoming competent Christians. Fascinating tabernacle symbolism in this book includes:
- The two most crucial events in the life of every believer
- Four "basin basics" that every Christian should know
- How to move from believing to becoming a light for Jesus
- Three choices that face all Christians in their journey
- How to use the one key that opens the door to the most holy place
- What changes to expect as you move from the outer court into the holy of holies.
The Pursuit of the Good Life offers a unique blend of practical application with life-changing transformations using symbolism that has been around for thousands of years.
About the Author:
Ted Haggard is the founding pastor of St. James Church in Colorado Springs, CO, the second church he and his wife, Gayle, have started during their 36-year marriage. Their first church, New Life Church, enjoyed 22 consecutive years of double-digit growth, primarily through conversions, and grew from 20 people meeting in the basement of their home to 14,000 people meeting on a $60 million campus.
Ted served as president of the 30 million member National Association of Evangelicals (NAE) from 2003-2006. During these years he often represented evangelicalism in the media and with world leaders. He also built The World Prayer Center and worldprayerteam.org, which was the largest network of praying believers in the world, coordinated at the World Prayer Center.
He also founded the Association of Life-Giving Churches, which merged with the Association of Related Churches in 2006. Ted resigned from all leadership positions for a period of healing and restoration in 2006.
Four years later, in 2010, Ted and Gayle started St. James Church in their barn before purchasing an office building and auditorium for weekly services. Gayle released a New York Times best-selling book titled, "Why I Stayed," in 2010, and her second book, "Courageous Grace," in 2013. Ted and Gayle live in Colorado Springs, where four of their five children also live. Their oldest son, Marcus, is attending Georgetown Law School in Washington, D.C., where he lives with his wife and two children.
Ted did his undergraduate work at Oral Roberts University, studied masters level counseling at the University of Phoenix, and received an honorary Doctor of Divinity degree from Colorado Christian University.
