About-

Do you know what will happen a week from next Tuesday? You might find a quite ordinary day with work, laundry, and a child's soccer game. Or perhaps the day will bring an unexpected tragedy for someone you love. Maybe something completely out of the blue will surprise you. While no one can know what today, tomorrow, or a week from next Tuesday will hold, you can know Christ's gift of JOY in your life every day. Despite our best efforts to squelch its presence, JOY keeps showing up because Jesus Christ keeps showing up. With stories from pastor Matt Rich's life and ministry, A Week from Next Tuesday explores the birth, life, death, resurrection, and promised return of Christ to provide a glimpse of this amazing gift that cannot be lost or stolen. Ideal for personal devotion, small group study, and all those seeking something more in their own lives and the church, this book invites you to receive the gift of JOY as you begin to recognize Christ's presence in the ordinary, tragic, and surprising moments of your life.

Endorsements & Reviews-

"A Week from Next Tuesday is a search for understanding of deep faith--of joy. In a curious way, Matt's search for joy, and understanding of joy, feels like an authentic, American equivalent to C. S. Lewis's delving into joy so many years ago. This is a book for Christians who want to move into a more profound experience of Christ. It will change lives and churches."
--Martha Grace Reese, author of Unbinding the Gospel Series

"Happiness, pleasure, joy. For most of us, these nouns are synonymous. Not for Matt Rich. And no longer, if Matt has his way, for us either. In this wonderful book, a treasure for pastors preaching on the subject of joy, he explains how joy cannot be earned through good work or desperate seeking. It is instead a by-product of the Spirit, discharged through our encounter with the risen Christ. Establish relationship with Christ and we no longer need to seek joy; joy will find us. If you would experience the joy of the gospel, start your journey here."
--Brian K. Blount, author of Invasion of the Dead: Resurrection Through the Lens of Apocalyptic Eschatology

"This study of the biblical basis of Christian hope is at once filled with contemplation and at the same time filled with glee. It's theologically astute while being homespun. It's mature and childlike. Matthew Rich has given us a gift that is accessible to all, and enlightening to those ready to explore and grow."
--Jack Haberer, editor of The Presbyterian Outlook
