Overview

When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul?

The health of your soul isn t just a matter of saved or unsaved. It s the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It s the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith.

In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. We ve neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the world and not without consequence.

Bestselling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soul the most important connection to God there is and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg brings practicality and relevance to one of Christianity s most mysterious and neglected topics.

What is the soul? Author and pastor Ortberg (When the Game Is Over, It All Goes Back in the Box) is the student to teacher Dallas Willard, the late philosophy professor, writer, and intellectual, regarding the answer to this age-old question. "You're a soul made by God, made for God, and made to need God," Willard tells him, "which means you were not made to be self-sufficient." Ortberg shares wisdom about the soul he learned from Willard, who died last year, throughout the book. He absorbs Willard's calm wisdom and explores the soul by the various things it needs: a keeper, a center, a future, life with God, rest, freedom, blessing, satisfaction, and gratitude. Ending with a section called "The Soul Restored," he explores the darkest part of the soul by explaining that "the soul is the place of greatest pain." As he reflects upon the life and passing of his friend and teacher, he ends with a cathartic realization of what a redeemed soul can be: "To share without thinking. To see without judging. To love God." This reflective study offers readers ways to nurture their souls—because that's ultimately the only thing that matters. Agency: Yates & Yates. (Apr.)
