Jim Moore says that the first and best Top Ten list is called the Ten Commandments and is just as relevant today as it was in ancient times. This book offers a "contemporary" Top Ten list of important things for Christians to remember as we make our way through life's journey. Acknowledging that we all need guideposts to help us along the way, Moore offers ten witty and wise reminders of the real priorities in life - God's priorities for faithful living. These uplifting reminders - along with a number of warm, inspirational stories and anecdotes - will encourage you to live each day with faith, hope, love, joy, trust and commitment, so that you may live purposefully and in celebration, trusting in God's faithfulness. The book includes a study guide designed for both group and individual use and featuring questions related to each chapter. The chapter titles are: 10 - Love Is the Greatest! 9 - Hope Is Still Alive 8 - Faith Has Its Own Taste Test! 7 - It Matters Intensely What You Believe 6 - God Is Smarter Than You Are 5 - Every Now and Then We All Hear a Rooster Crow 4 - You Don't Have to Cross the Fox River Until You Get to It 3 - There Are Some Roads We Just Don't Need to Go Up 2 - You Do Better When You Try 1 - Christianity Is a Life We Live, Not Just a Creed We Profess
