You've heard people say, "Who you are matters more than what you do." But does the Bible really teach us that? Join pastor and bestselling author John Mark Comer in Garden City as he guides twenty- and thirty-somethings through understanding and embracing their God-given calling.

In Garden City, John Mark Comer gives a surprisingly countercultural take on the typical "spiritual" answer the church gives in response to questions about purpose and calling. Comer explores Scripture to discover God's original intent for how we're meant to spend our time, reshaping how you view and engage in your work, rest, and life.

In these pages, you'll learn that, ultimately, what we do matters just as much as who we are. Garden City will help you find answers to questions like:
Does God care where I work?Does he have a clear direction for me?How can I create a practice of rest?
Praise for Garden City:

"In Garden City, John Mark Comer takes the reader on a journey--from creation to the final heavenly city. But the journey is designed to let each of us see where we are to find ourselves in God's good plan to partner with us in the redemption of all creation. There is in Garden City an intoxication with the Bible's biggest and life-changing ideas."

--Scot McKnight, Julius R. Mantey Professor of New Testament, Northern Seminary

    Read this book in a day, perspective about work and rest radically changed, and I’m ready to put into practice the vital things this book shared. Read it but be warned that it will change your whole perspective on work and rest.

    This is one of the best books I’ve read in a long time. John writes intelligently and refreshingly clear. I read the book alongside with the audio version and it was an awesome experience. I am so glad I read it. Thanks for writng it John.

    This is by far the best book I have ever read. And it has inspired me to look for more biblical education. Out of all the years I have tried to understand scripture, I relate to this and think I understand, at least the first few verses of the very first book. Who would guessed you could write a book about that. And make everything crystal clear. I do have a purpose. This author is so down to earth that even I get it. God bless you for such a wonderful and super important interpretation. And a great sense of humor too.

    John Mark makes so many amazing points that get overlooked for so many Christians today. This book changed my life and is helping me embrace and find the life that God has called me to. I feel so much more peace and purpose after JM dropped some knowledge with this one. You have to read it. -David
