Falling in love is one of life’s greatest joys.
So imagine the endless joy of falling head over heels for God.
Falling in love is one of the most magnificent experiences of human life. Remember what it feels like? How it happens? You spend time with that special someone, get to know each other, and then one day find yourselves so intimately connected it is as though your souls have become intertwined.
Compare that experience with your current relationship with God. Why doesn’t it feel just as passionate, just as wonderful? Gary Moon believes it can.
If you’re not head over heels in love with God, you’re missing out on an incredible experience, but you’re not without hope. Falling for God will inspire you to pursue a passionate, intimate relationship with a God who even though he doesn’t need anything from you, wants more than anything to be united with you.
Through Bible study, personal meditation, and classic spiritual exercises, you’ll discover how to experience this loving connection with the lover of your soul. The journey will take you through honest conversation and active communion to a deeper experience of intimate union with God. Falling for God will move you to embrace an all-out passion for joyful and abundant living.
In this extraordinary book, Dr. Larry Crabb introduces a revolutionary new way for Christians to experience God. It is a process he calls “soul talk.” Soul talk happens when two Christians talk to each other in a way that results in their passion for God being stirred, ignited, and released. It’s about learning a language that when used, releases supernatural power that enables people to move to the deepest level of relationships with each other and with God. The culmination of a lifetime of research and writing, Soul Talk carries a vision for what the Church was created to be.
“Grant, Lord, that I may know myself that I may know thee.”–Augustine
Much is said in Christian circles about knowing God. But Christians throughout the ages have agreed that there cannot be deep knowledge of God without deep knowledge of the self. Discerning your true self is inextricably related to discerning God’s purposes for you. Paradoxically, the more you become like Christ, the more you become authentically yourself.
In this profound exploration of Christian identity, psychologist and spiritual director David G. Benner illuminates the spirituality of self-discovery. He exposes the false selves that you may hide behind and calls you to discover the true self that emerges from your uniqueness in Christ. Freeing you from illusions about yourself, Benner shows that self-understanding leads to the fulfillment of your God-given destiny and vocation.
“Christian spirituality,” writes Benner, “involves a transformation of the self that occurs only when God and self are both deeply known.” The self is not God, but it is the place where you meet God. Genuine self-knowledge revitalizes your spiritual life and opens the door to becoming who God has created you to be.
Rest assured, you need not try to be someone you are not. But you will deepen your experience of God through discovering the gift of being yourself.
