9781434799951: The Lazarus Life: Spiritual Transformation for Ordinary People

I am Lazarus.  And so are you.

The life of Lazarus is one of the most recognizable stories found in God's word. The chronicle of an ordinary man who found himself at the center of an astounding miracle. A divine process that fully revealed Christ's transforming power, through a resurrection that preceded His very own.

But what if the story of Lazarus holds powerful parallels for us today? What if his story of hope and heartbreak, expectancy and disappointment, death and life, is our story too? What if the transformation Lazarus experienced is available to you and me? Stephen W. Smith presents a remarkable journey through the life of Lazarus. Come explore the life and legacy of Lazarus. Discover a story all your own.  And hear the voice of the One who loves you.

About the Author:

Stephen W. Smith is the co-founder and spiritual director of The Potter's Inn Ministry, a group and retreat devoted to encouraging spiritual development. He is a developer of The Transformation of a Man's Heart series (InterVarsity Press). Stephen lives with his wife, Gwen, in Colorado.

Review:

"Steve Smith has plumbed the depths of three things--his own life, the life of ordinary men and women he's met, and especially the life of Lazarus, `whom Jesus raised from the dead.' As these lives all converge, a wondrous thing happens: Lazarus becomes freshly alive before us and we feel the stirrings of new life within us. And then, more: the Voice of Jesus breaks through the stone of our own tomb, our own heart, and bids us, `Come forth!' This is a book that will allow you to experience personally, deeply, maybe for the first time, Jesus' love for you, his miracle with you. It's a book that will give you hope." -- Mark Buchanan

"Steve Smith has unpacked the story of Lazarus' resurrection as a lens through which we can see the multifaceted dynamics of the spiritual journey out of our deadness into resurrection life. This is one of the most balanced and thorough portrayals of spiritual transformation I have read. This is a must read for anyone engaged in mentoring others on the spiritual journey and a welcome guide for those on the journey. -- Dr. M. Robert Mulholland, Jr., author of Invitation to a Journey and The Deeper Journey

"The Lazarus Life is a radiantly hopeful book about the promise of resurrection in the places where we are most dead. Enter into the Lazarus story and say yes to Jesus' invitation to "Come forth" and live!" -- Ruth Haley Barton, co-founder and president, Transforming Center and author of Invitation to Solitude and Silence, Sacred Rhythms, and Strengthening the Soul of Your Leadership

"With simplicity and integrity, Steve Smith offers his keen insights taken from the Lazarus story. In so doing, he tells my story of desperate yearning for deep and lasting change. To the soul-sick who are looking for a certain cure, I pray that this book will bring hope and healing to your soul in the profound way that it has renewed mine." -- Gordon MacDonald, author and pastor

This book is a resource whose time has come. Steve Smith has written a vulnerable, practical, true-companion guide to finding an identity rooted in the love of Christ. You will return to this book again and again. -- Paula Rinehart, author of Strong Women, Soft Hearts and Better Than My Dreams.
