Open the Door: A Journey to the True Self by Joyce Rupp

Beloved author and spiritual guide Joyce Rupp explores the rich image of the door as an invitation to growth and awareness. Discovering the many ways that doors are a potent symbol for spiritual growth, she leads readers to search more deeply for their authentic selves in fuller union with God. Designed as a six-week process with a reflection for each day of the week, Open the Door is a guide to discovering one's rich potential for goodness and fulfillment.

Readers will discover that there is seemingly no end to the insights that the image of the door can yield and that opening the door of the heart reveals the vast treasure of who we are and how the sacred is present within us. Joyce Rupp provides both encouragement and companionship for those who desire to open each new door and grow into their divine fullness.

Open the Door is a book to be savored and "consumed" slowly to appreciate the fullness of its purpose: to lead you to your authentic self in God. Joyce Rupp includes precious gems from a wealth of authors that makes you want to go deeper into what wisdom is out there for the taking, learning and knowing. Read by yourself, it is a wonderful personal journey; read with a reading group or church group, it is a wonderful journey of sharing and growing together. A little daunting at first, perseverance reaps unlimited benefits.

Joyce takes the reader on a spiritual journey that is like being on a six week retreat without leaving home.
