From the Back Cover:

What If Your Purpose Is Not God's But Yours?

—Tama J. Kieves, author, This Time I Dance!: Creating the Work You Love

"Beautifully written, with compelling illustrative stories woven throughout, Holy Play gently and profoundly challenges us to expand our notions of God's purpose for our lives.At the same time as he challenges us to grow up and become adult partners with God, Kirk Jones invites us to rediscover our childlike sense of play.Holy Play leads the reader into what it means both to 'enter the kingdom of God as a child' and to grow beyond 'merely drinking milk to digesting meat.'"
—Margaret Benefiel, author of Soul at Work: Spiritual Leadership in Organizations

"Kirk Jones, in his wonderfully uplifting new book, Holy Play, helps us rethink our understandings of purpose, ourselves, and God. You'll be thrilled by what Reverend Jones has to say, and if you listen closely to your intuition, I have no doubt it will urge you to 'Read this book.'"
—Lynn Robinson, author, Divine Intuition and Trust Your Gut

From the Inside Flap:

What happens when your effort to discover God's will for your life feels more like a "holy guessing game" than a quest for true understanding and joy?

In Holy Play, popular author and teacher Kirk Byron Jones shows how to move forward together with God to imagine and live your true life purpose with creativity and joy. This extraordinary book gives you permission to stop waiting for God to tell you what to do and start doing what God has been inspiring you to do all along. Through provocative stories and helpful exercises, Jones shows you how to foster the openness and energy that allow you to engage with and construct a fulfilling life that uses all your God-given talent. Jones shows how to humbly and gladly accept the sacred incredible in you–in particular the creator in you.

Jones reveals that you can tap into your divine creativity by taking these steps:

  • Step One: Believe that God is your divine partner, not your domineering parent.
  • Step Two: Believe that vocation is an open possibility, not a closed proposition.
  • Step Three: Accept that you are not just creature but creator as well.
  • Step Four: Dream your way to purpose.
  • Step Five: Joyfully play your dreams.

Holy Play is your guide to taking an amazing journey, a joyful adventure into self-knowledge that will help you begin living your true purpose in life.
