CIU Alumnus Ponders “The Blessing of Gratitude” Why Jesus commands us to be thankful

November 28, 2010


Are you truly thankful this holiday season - or for that matter, any time of year? In the November edition of "Christianity Today" magazine online, Columbia International University alumnus Stan Guthrie tackles the question: why Jesus commands us to be thankful. The article, "The Blessing of Gratitude" is adapted from Guthrie's new book, "All That Jesus Asks: How His Questions Can Teach and Transform Us," published by Baker Books. The article and book include insight from CIU President Emeritus Robertson McQuilkin on how trust and obedience is key to a grateful heart.

Guthrie, who earned a Master of Arts in Missions from CIU, is an editor at large for "Christianity Today," and a literary agent. He is also the author of "Missions in the Third Millennium: 21 Key Trends for the 21st Century."
