The Divine Center: Why We Need a Life Centered on Christ and How We Attain It [NOOK Book]

Overview

"For many years," writes the author, "I have felt and seen the need for an organizing principle in life." That principle must be simple but not simplistic; and it must offer total direction in life. This book introduces, explains, and illuminates that principle - centering one's life on God. Part of this concept, aspiring to be Christlike, is not a new thought. What is new and compelling here is the author's sparklingly fresh approach: "We see the world not as it is, but as we are." Hence the multiplicity of views on reality. The perspective,

Overview

"For many years," writes the author, "I have felt and seen the need for an organizing principle in life." That principle must be simple but not simplistic; and it must offer total direction in life. This book introduces, explains, and illuminates that principle - centering one's life on God. Part of this concept, aspiring to be Christlike, is not a new thought. What is new and compelling here is the author's sparklingly fresh approach: "We see the world not as it is, but as we are." Hence the multiplicity of views on reality. The perspective, then, the mindset, is crucial. It is indeed "all in the head." To change our life we must change our frame of reference. What if we changed it to "the mind of Christ," to use Paul's term? In a text graphically illustrated and brimming with stimulating thoughts and experiences the author examines twelve common centers or perspectives and their effect on the fundamental dimensions of life - our security, guidance, wisdom, and power. While these perspectives all offer values in varying degrees and emphases, all but one (including the Church and the family) is clearly seen to be ultimately deficient as a life center. Only the divine center meets all the tests. This powerful principle is given vibrant life by an inspiring presentation of "how-to's" - by an imaginative, thought-provoking explanation of the divine-centering process and the detailed steps necessary at its various stages. This is a book of unusual substance and depth. Understandable at several levels, it will be reread often for increased comprehension and motivation. No conscientious reader can fail to be influenced by its message.

    Highly Recommended

    As most people know, Stephen Covey was a great man and author. In this book he explains in detail why it is so important to make God and Jesus Christ the center of our lives. Although there are many other important things in our lives, he describes how and why we owe everything to Them.
