What You'll Learn:
Many Christians talk about the centrality of their relationship to God. But there are two involved in any relationship. Christians focus primarily on God, but neglect the other half of the relational pair: the self. The self is very commonly invoked in the context of “sinner,” but this often obscures the facts that the sinner is deeply loved by God and that the self is the very ground where God chooses to dwell and connect with a person. This book attempts to reconnect contemporary Christianity to the ancient understanding of the God-given gift of the self and its necessity for authentic spirituality and deep connection with God.
