Overview

Psychologist Dan Montgomery invites you into a warm conversation about the difficulties of being human, and how simple faith can infuse your life with God's loving guidance. GUIDEPOSTS Editor Elizabeth Sherrill says, "I've waited a long time for a book like this! Like a caring counselor in private session, Dan Montgomery writes to anyone who thinks being a Christian means conforming to someone else's pattern. To anyone turned off by denominational squabbling. To anyone who believes his current situation is hopeless. To anyone seeking a more intimate walk with Father, Son and Holy Spirit." An easy read, the book nevertheless shimmers with intellectual sophistication. Theologian Gabriel Fackre writes: "Christian teaching about the Trinity becomes up close and personal in this engaging work by a wise counselor. Here is enriching daily guidance from Compass Therapy for our pilgrimage with the triune God."

    A Life-Companion Book For Your Spiritual Journey

    Psychologist Dan Montgomery has the chutzpah to say what's on many people's minds today. When you limit your faith solely to what a particular church or denomination has to offer, you miss out on the rest of your adventure with God. I read this book in one sitting and placed it on my bedside table for many thoughtful returns. Material about the Self Compass was particularly valuable. Though the book has special significance for Christians, its core message will inspire people from every spiritual tradition. It makes a perfect gift to those who are weighted down with worries and not at all sure God loves them. As a professional counselor, I'll be referring this book to individual's who are seeking spiritual as well as psychological wholeness. I already gave a copy to my sister. Raymond D. Anderson, Ph.D., Th.D., LPCC

    Faith Beyond Church Walls: Finding Freedom in Christ

    Important and timely! Many Christians are feeling disenfranchised from enjoying a truly personal relationship with God. Through practical instruction and warm personal anecdotes, the reader learns how to invite God into a vibrant, intimate everyday relationship. Understanding how to develop one's own personality using the Self Compass is an essential step. Dr. Montgomery's beautifully written book is sensitive, insightful, and a tonic to the soul.

    Faith Beyond Church Walls: Finding Freedom in Christ

    Whether you're a Christian newcomer or old-timer, or just taking a look at what the Christian faith is all about, this book will draw you closer to God. The chapters that touched me most were 'God With You,' 'A Self Compass for Finding Your Way,' 'The Devil Is Emotionally Disturbed,' and 'The Beauty of Little Prayers.' Because of its relevance to the 21st century, I recommend this book even more strongly than 'Mere Christianity' by C. S. Lewis.

    A Book For Your Bedside

    This deceptively simple book conveys much wisdom in a riveting style. Dan Montgomery gets right to the essence of what's important to know about human nature, personality, and relating to God in terms that entice both veteran readers and those who typically don't read books. For anyone who is hurting and needs the Lord's help, this is the book for you.
