In 1995, I began what has since become an annual Christmas tradition: offering, as a gift to our members, a book that has been meaningful to me in my Christian life. I do this for two reasons. First, because it’s appropriate for SMI to express appreciation for your support. Without loyal readers, we could not have served the body of Christ these past 27 years. And second, we want to encourage you in areas beyond the mechanics of stewardship. How we handle God’s money is important, but how we walk daily with Christ is life itself.

This year, for the second time, I’ve selected When I Don’t Desire God by John Piper. The first time, in 2005, we received the second highest number of requests in the 20+ year history of our Christmas book giveaway. Apparently, many of us believe we don’t live out a desire for God as we should.
