Soul Keeping Caring For the Most Important Part of You By John Ortberg Review

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.

Cassandra's Review- There are two topics I will not discuss with immediate family and one of them is religion.  I know a lot of  my loyal reader family have all sorts of different views as well. I love to read everything and keep an open mind because knowledge is power!  As this book is so cool and filled with stuff you just have to read for yourself, I will make this short. I enjoyed it. The other realm of possibility is endless. That is all and thank you to the author for taking the time to give me more to think on. 

The publisher has provided me with a complimentary copy of this book or advanced reading copy through Book Look Bloggers
