Spirituality of Gratitude: The Unexpected Blessings of Thankfulness by Joshua Choonmin Kang

2015 Readers' Choice Award Winner

"Deep gratitude springs up from within," writes pastor and bestselling Korean author Joshua Choonmin Kang. "To become truly grateful is incredibly difficult, but the difficulty of the process makes the results all the more lovely."

God invites us to enter into this world of thankfulness at every moment in our lives, even in the hard times—perhaps especially then. Pastor Kang continues: "Gratitude heals us and holds us, tethering us to one another, offering us joy and strength."

As with Deep-Rooted in Christ, this book has fifty-two short chapters that can be read in weekly sabbath reflection or daily devotional use. So come and discover a spirituality of gratitude.
