One ancient story. Seven new lessons about life and change.
Internationally acclaimed speaker and writer Dan Assisi transforms an old story told countless times before into something new and deeply relevant to our times.
In Our Road to Damascus, Dr. Assisi uncovers 7 lessons for a life of purpose and meaning that will help us navigate the challenges we face and find the happiness we seek. At the end, we are left with a blueprint for understanding change and acting on personal growth that will stick with you forever.
"Loneliness, loss, failure, doubt, confusion, hope, direction, faith... A Paul like you have never seen before. Our Road to Damascus is practical wisdom that transcends time. It hits so close to home it will leave you gaping..."
Paul of Tarsus' journey to Damascus is not a religious story - it is a tale of profound personal transformation that helps us understand life's challenges and inspires us to keep on walking our own path. As we dive deeper into one of the greatest personal transformations in recorded history, we begin to understand why we face the struggles we do, how they relate to each other and what may lie ahead for us.
"Our Road to Damascus is spirituality steeped in reason. It weaves in science, poetry, biology, philosophy, and psychology to craft a beautiful tapestry of rational faith that speaks to both heart and mind. It is the wisdom of the Gospel shown in a way you have never seen before."
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 own road to Damascus.
