Overview

Frustrated and fed up at trying to live your life by the list? You know, it is that ""corporate world"" model of priority-keeping which is so ingrained in our culture (something first, then something second, and then something else third, and so on). God at Center provides the challenge to embrace a biblical paradigm for priority-keeping which does not follow the world, but the word. Is there really an alternative to putting ""God first"" in our lives? Yes, there is! And it is a more ""biblical"" paradigm, one that has God at the center of our lives. With God in his rightful place in your life and applying a fuller understanding of the Great Commandment (which is in and of itself a ""priority-keeping"" passage), you will embrace a lifestyle of seeking to love God with all your heart, soul, and strength and to love your neighbor as yourself. You will finally make sense of who you are, what God wants you to know, and what you can do about it.

What People are Saying About This

From the Publisher

“Joe LoMusio has developed a robust biblical theology of priorities. Only with God at the center can we really know him, allow him to transform us, and then understand how to balance the simultaneous responsibilities we have toward the other significant people God has placed in our lives.”


—Mark L. Bailey, chancellor, Dallas Theological Seminary





“Life is relentlessly fragmenting. We are pulled in many directions while we strive to keep the main thing, the main thing. Too often we have been given a hierarchy of priorities only to discover that life doesn’t cooperate with our lists and plans. Joe LoMusio helps us find a new perspective, showing us that it is possible to live without a competing set of imperatives that usually make us frustrated and constantly hitting a reset button. I believe you will go back to this book often as you seek to experience God in the center of your life.”


—Cliff McArdle, Far East Broadcasting Company





“For many years, I have wrestled with the idea that I need to live my life by a list of priorities: God first, wife second, family third, etc. In just a few pages, Joe LoMusio has revealed not only a better way to live but the biblical way! The sure way to follow, grounded in truth—the way of ‘God at center.’”


—Larry Niggli, San Diego Coalition for Men’s Discipleship





God at Center offers an excellent opportunity to calibrate thoughts about what is the core of our beliefs—that God not only relates to us in a personal way but is also the nucleus of our spiritual walk with him. There is great discovery in knowing that God is not only transcendent but can also be the glorious hub within our hearts and minds that can impact everything we do and everyone we encounter. The centrality of God goes beyond hierarchical and timebound limitations and frees the believer to radiate the boundless love of God, anytime and anyplace.”


—Arnold Huntley, fellow, Colson Center for Christian Worldview





“I have reviewed many books and confess that some of them I skim. That is because of the quality of content and the book’s ability to command my attention. But God at Center captured me—the quotations, the argumentation, the applications, the conclusion. I was captivated by the content, its structure, and the literary presentation. I read it carefully, applying its message to my thinking, and I challenge you to do the same.”


—Elmer Towns, cofounder, Liberty University





“Common sense tells us that to fulfill ‘essential’ tasks we must remove the ‘unessentials’


of life. Yet most of us agree that such knowledge does not predictably yield actions and


habits that epitomize that knowledge. It seems that we need more than common sense. LoMusio highlights that prioritizing how we spend our time and placing God at the


center of our lives is a daily choice; it’s a choice that will ultimately determine how the


rest of our relationships, responsibilities, and circumstances will unfold. The text is


grounded in the attributes of God found in Scripture and is outlined according to the


great commandment to love God and love others.”


–Mary Kay Park, executive managing director, Far East Broadcasting Company
