A fascinating mix of personal history, heartfelt insights, biblical analysis, and a great deal of humor, Borrowed Goods is an exploration of spiritual growth and the untapped potential residing in all of us. In this inspirational work, Nell Christianson reminds us that everything we possess – our strengths, our intelligence, and our worldly goods – comes directly from God, and if we utilize our talents, our lives will have eternal purpose. She builds much of her discussion around Matthew 25: 14–30, the Parable of the Talents, and challenges us to make good choices and use our gifts and talents wisely. The book speaks of reward and responsibility. Borrowed Goods takes you on a prodigal’s journey aboard a cruise ship called “Earth.” As a passenger you arrive at your final destination to meet a loving God who wants a personal relationship with you. And God, a righteous Judge, requires accountability when you dock on the other shore.
