Joyful Journey by E. James Wilder
"Trauma hurts us. It hurts us several times. It hurts us when it takes place, and every time when it comes back. It also hurts us every time when we do not know what to do about it. In their book 1CJoyful Journey 1D, four authors suggest a safe and..." Read more of this review »

Joyful Journey by E. James Wilder
"Joyful Journey is a fantastic personal growth / transformational book. My only complaint was the cost for such a slim book, but then I found out I could have bought it for a better price directly from Life Model Works (see also the JoyStartsHere w..." Read more of this review »

No Man Is an Island by Thomas Merton
“The beginning of love is the will to let those we love be perfectly themselves, the resolution not to twist them to fit our own image. If in loving them we do not love what they are, but only their potential likeness to ourselves, then we do not love them: we only love the reflection of ourselves we find in them”
Thomas Merton

David G. Benner
“If we are honest, most of us have to admit that prayer is often more of an obligation than something arising spontaneously from desire . . . the core of the misunderstanding lies in thinking of prayer as something that we do. Understood more correctly, prayer is what God does in us. Our part has much more to do with consent than initiative.”
David G. Benner, Opening to God: Lectio Divina and Life as Prayer

John Ortberg
“The psalmist says “I have set the LORD always before me.” Paul says, “We take captive every thought to make it obedient to Christ.” They speak to the need for our souls to be completely and thoroughly with God. But as both of these verses suggest, it does not happen automatically. “Set” and “take captive” are active verbs, implying that you have a role in determining where your soul rests.”
John Ortberg, Soul Keeping: Caring For the Most Important Part of You

Clare De Graaf
“The Christian ideal has not been tried and found wanting. It has been found difficult and left untried. —G. K. CHESTERTON”
Clare De Graaf, The 10-Second Rule: Following Jesus Made Simple

Peter Rollins
“Our real beliefs are generally not to be found at the level of ego.”
Peter Rollins, The Idolatry of God: Breaking Our Addiction to Certainty and Satisfaction

N.T. Wright
“When human beings give their heartfelt allegiance to and worship that which is not God, they progressively cease to reflect the image of God. One of the primary laws of human life is that you become like what you worship; what’s more, you reflect what you worship not only to the object itself but also outward to the world around. Those who worship money increasingly define themselves in terms of it and increasingly treat other people as creditors, debtors, partners, or customers rather than as human beings. Those who worship sex define themselves in terms of it (their preferences, their practices, their past histories) and increasingly treat other people as actual or potential sex objects. Those who worship power define themselves in terms of it and treat other people as either collaborators, competitors, or pawns. These and many other forms of idolatry combine in a thousand ways, all of them damaging to the image-bearing quality of the people concerned and of those whose lives they touch.”
N.T. Wright, Surprised by Hope: Rethinking Heaven, the Resurrection, and the Mission of the Church
