"... A book that succeeds in the tricky feat of being intriguingly spiritual without being explicitly religious." -- Kirkus Reviews
The world feels overwhelming. So much is happening that everything seems chaotic and confusing. Deep inside we also know things could be different, that life could be better. We feel the need for change.
How do we make sense of it all? How do we move past the discomfort we are feeling and navigate toward meaningful change? What lies ahead in our journey of personal growth?
To help us through it, award-winning author and internationally acclaimed speaker Dan Assisi transforms an old story told countless times before into something new and deeply applicable to our times.
In Our Road to Damascus, Paul of Tarsus' famous journey is not a religious story - it is a tale of profound transformation filled with rich symbolism we can transfer into our daily lives.
This is a book for anyone who has gone through difficult times and is wondering: what comes next? If you enjoy seeing different concepts connect to create a bigger picture that can help you navigate life, this book is for you.
Discover what lies ahead in your road to Damascus.
