Soul Keeping by John Ortberg
Caring for the most important part of you.
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 but not without consequence.
Including reflections from his decades-long relationship with his friend and mentor Dallas Willard, bestselling author John Ortberg outlines a guide 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. This book will help you connect more deeply with the God who gave you life and desires every day to bring more meaning, hope, and abundance to that life.
“And the Lord God formed man of the dust of the ground, and breathed into his nostrils the breath of life; and man became a living soul.” – Genesis 2:7
