Something Better: A Q&A with Tim Chaddick

"There is a lot of superficial living within the church today, due in part to that fact that the church hasn't wrestled with many of the difficult themes in life, causing them to treat Jesus almost as a sort of commodity that they add to life rather than a whole new way of living life."

A "Better" Book Review

David Swartz

Better points in a winsome style that the book was always meant to have a higher target - the fullness of Jesus Christ, loose and fiery in the fabric of the human heart.

Your Better Life Now

Your Better Life Now

Coyle Neal

Chaddick does a great job of getting at the meaning of Ecclesiastes and how it matters for us in the 21st century. Over and over he delivers the Preacher's message that absolutely everything in this world is vanity bound for destruction. 

It Always Gets Better

It Always Gets Better

Chaddick has created a resource that goes far beyond cliche into creating a book that actually has power to be transformative in each readers life.

The Wisdom of the Wisdom Literature

The Wisdom of the Wisdom Literature

Frank Viola

For many years I've argued that the body of Christ has emphasized the New Testament, the Psalms, the Torah, and the Prophets. However, the wisdom literature (Proverbs, Ecclesiastes, Song of Solomon, etc.)  is often skipped over. Better is a modern-day discussion and application of the book of Ecclesiastes.
