Overview

We are physical beings, and yet we are inherently spiritual beings who yearn to move closer to God, writes Dr. Peter Kalellis. He shows us how in this practical and insightful guide focused on the dynamics of the spiritual journey, on the continual process of developing a deeper relationship with God and consequently becoming better human beings. This process begins with our awareness and decision to listen to God's loving presence in our lives and in our world and includes our faith, focus, understanding and action.

Drawing upon Scripture, the writings of the Orthodox Fathers, sources literary (Les Misérables), philosophical (Plato, Socrates, Pythagoras), and cinematic (The Lion King), as well as the author's own experiences as a psychotherapist, family and marriage therapist, and former Greek Orthodox priest, this is an intelligently written and infectiously enthusiastic invitation to journey to faith that contributes to the literature of Christian spirituality.

It includes end-chapter thoughts and questions for reflection and bibliography at book's end.

Highlights:
" a practical roadmap to spiritual growth
" discusses the concepts of conscience, mind, free will, heart, and soul
" therapeutic
" joyous and uplifting
