Overview

This book uniquely and specifically targets two expanding, highly defined and profitably proven market segments at the same time, namely, the areas of Self-Help Psychology and Spiritual-Inspiration/Religion. Cautiously juxtaposed to each other for the most part, these two fields in the past have rarely offered any serious or cogent understanding of their mutually acknowledged strengths and parallels to the reader at large, causing needless confusion and bewilderment. Now, finally, that bridge of understanding has been succinctly constructed. Unlike other books, The Winds of the Soul deftly spans the gap between these two highly popular disciplines, while positively impacting its readers in being both instructionally stimulating and spiritually rewarding. This work offers a completely new perspective compared to present publications-an innovative treatment of old and new materials which will be loved by professional and layperson alike. It will quickly find its own niche because it provides the intimate support, concise understanding and spiritual direction found missing from the many popular works already published in the areas of Psychology and Religion today. Written from a reasoning and gently offered Christian perspective, this book wonderfully and broadly speaks to many other Faiths whose adherents similarly wonder about the currents of "feelings" which run through them, what these "feelings" really are, and how to successfully work with them. Also in the offering are some profound personal experiences of self-discovery which will prove deeply and emotionally satisfying to its wide readership.
