Faith Driven Consumer themes run deep in Jeff Shinabarger’s latest book
As the dog days of summer wind down and Americans prepare to hit the ground running following the Labor Day holiday, the September 1st release of Jeff Shinabarger’s second book, Yes or No: How Your Everyday Decisions Will Forever Shape Your Life, is particularly timely for Faith Driven Consumers seeking to be good stewards of the time, talent and treasure entrusted to us by God.
Whether we realize it or not, we all make 5,000 choices daily. While most are mundane, some are significant and impact the legacy we leave behind as followers of Christ who one day hope to hear the words, “Well done, good and faithful servant.” Focusing on the power of choice, YES OR NO offers a practical and proven process for making good choices that will resonate deeply with Faith Driven Consumers.
With strong inroads into the Millennial generation through his former leadership roles with the Catalyst and Q conferences, Atlanta-based Shinabarger is uniquely gifted as a social entrepreneur to help Christians craft a personal philosophy of choice. In YES OR NO, Shinabarger shares directly from his personal experience to help readers determine their philosophy of choice by focusing on an understanding of the underlying WHY that drives the decisions we make.
Here, the goal is to let soul-searching questions about our lives, fears and dreams—the loves of our lives—shape our decision-making processes. Related questions about the unique wisdom and calling God has placed on each person’s life also contribute to this understanding how we steward our money and time.
Beyond the philosophy of choice, Shinabarger also guides readers through seven natural decision-making styles that have a major impact on the trajectory of one’s life and legacy, including the tendency to make decisions passively, spiritually or emotionally, or through list making, storytelling and collective reasoning.
As Faith Driven Consumers, we know how challenging it can be to make good decisions in the moments of tension and transition that come with the daily choices we face as Christians called to good stewardship. Yes or No is a resource that helps faith-driven readers to make decisions that reflect our biblical values and match our wallets to our worldview.
