Publisher Description

When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul? Bestselling author John Ortberg guides you through several practices to restore your soul so you can experience a life of wholeness, balance, and hope.

The health of your soul isn't just a matter of saved or unsaved. It's the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It's the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith.

In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. We've neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the world--and not without consequence.

Including reflections from his decades-long relationship with his friend and mentor Dallas Willard, bestselling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soul--the most important connection to God there is--and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg will help you connect more deeply with the God who gave you life and desires every day to bring more meaning, hope, and abundance to that life.

"Soul Keeping is a very accessible introduction to spiritual formation to new believers and a good review for those who are further along in their growing faith. Ortberg offers a very personal, honest example of self examination to model his own journey toward authenticity. While somewhat idealizing Dallas Willard, Ortberg gives a compelling picture of his mentor as one who has achieved a level of self-awareness and relational peace that we all hope to attain. It is helpful to have a flesh and blood example to refer to as Ortberg walks through heavier theological concepts in a practical, simple, conversational style. This book is included in a course I'm teaching on ministry to families in crisis. It is included with a more clinical text to insure that students can use this knowledge to the benefit of themselves and parishioners. "
