Pray and Play

Hi, I’m Bruce. My devotional Bible study Pray and Play will help you experience pleasure God’s way. I show you how to apply many Bible passages to the fun side of your life and that of your loved ones. As with all my books, this one has humor. It also has Bible study with thought-provoking discussion questions for groups.

Title: Pray and Play: Dealing with a Fun-Loving Culture

Type: Devotional Bible Study for individuals’ reading and groups’ discussions

Description: Pray and Play helps you apply the Bible to your fun-life in order to help you honor God.

Pray and Play: Dealing with a Fun-Loving Culture

You can experience God’s joy in your pleasure.

Main Ideas of Pray and Play

  • You and your loved ones can enjoy life God’s way by discovering his pleasure principles.
  • In reading,  studying, and discussing my book, you can steer a biblical middle path between complete separation from culture and your culture’s control of your life.
  • Learn how to avoid separating God from your life (secularism). Through this book, God can help you avoid pursuing pleasure for its own sake.
This study comes directly from my experience with God. I spent my first sixteen years as a fun-loving unbeliever. Then, after becoming a Christian, I put pleasure alongside of God as an unexamined idol until my first years as a pastor. Finally, God taught me, in a message that I preached from the Bible, how to have fun in a God-pleasing and God-honoring way.
