9781576830499: Soul Keeping: Ancient Paths of Spiritual Direction

Spiritually dry times occur for a reason: They give us a thirst for the living water that only God can provide and allow us to experience the futility of losing our soul to this world, so that we will get serious about keeping it to life eternal.

Rediscover life in the kingdom of God as practiced by saints and martyrs, prophets and psalmists. The paths they walked are for the weary and worn-out, the bruised and battered, the disillusioned and despairing, the hurting and the hopeless.

From the Back Cover:

“HOW IS IT THAT I CAN BE CONSISTENTLY EXPERIENCING GOD’S PRESENCE, sensing his love, and feeling the power of the spirit AND THEN ALL OF THE SUDDEN-NOTHING? I continue the same practices I was doing in prayer and devotion, but with entirely different results. There is no sense of God’s presence, only dryness in the Scriptures, and hollowness in prayer.” Are you searching for new meaning in your spiritual life? “Many of us have felt mired in busyness, the pain of our past, apathy toward God, phoniness in prayer, our own self-absorption, or in a general feeling of lostness in our spiritual life,” writes Howard Baker. But, he says, these “desert times” occur for a reason. They give us a thirst for the living water that only God can provide and allow us to experience the futility of losing our soul to this world, so that we will get serious about keeping it to life eternal. Soul Keeping is a metaphor for living a fulfilling, passionate life in Christ. In it you’ll rediscover life in the kingdom of God as practiced by saints and martyrs, prophets and psalmists. The paths they walked are for the weary and worn-out, the bruised and battered, the disillusioned and despairing, the hurting and the hopeless. If you’re struggling in your spiritual life and searching for renewed passion for God, the paths described in Soul Keeping will provide rest for your soul as you richly experience God and His presence. “Ask for the ancient paths, where the good way is, and walk in it; and you shall find rest for your souls.”-Jeremiah 6:16
