Many Christians think of Jesus as the Saviour whose resurrection promises fulfilment in the life to come. Others instead focus on Jesus' moral teachings and his commitment to achieving social justice in the present world. Both views are rooted in scripture, and neither is wrong.However, each speak only part of the truth of who Jesus is and in SELLING WATER BY THE RIVER, Shane Hipps underscores that Jesus is also, and most importantly, the Master of the inner life - the Teacher who reveals that the object of human beings' deepest longing dwells within each of us.This life-changing book isn't about 'religion' or 'spirituality'; it's about realising that what we search for already resides inside us and how the heaven we long for isn't just a gift when we die but a gift while we live.

'It's a rare feat for a work to keep teaching and informing and blowing your mind, page after page after page. Shane Hipps has the extraordinary ability to articulate, explain, and educate.' -- Rob Bell 'This book is a masterful expose of our media-saturated world and its hidden influence. But it also contains the seeds of a creative response that could change everything. Shane Hipps points us toward a hidden path out of the media maze that we can't afford to miss.' -- Andy Crouch, author of Culture Making on Flickering Pixels 'Shane Hipps pulls back the curtain on technology, exposing the subconcious influences that wreak havoc on our existence. It's brilliant, eye-opening, and a must-read for any thoughtful person pursuing a countercultural life in the digital age.' -- Gabe Lyons, coauthor of UnChristian on Flickering Pixels
