God invites you to join him in it. "Soulcraft invites us into the workshop of a pastor practicing his craft, soulcraft. There are no cliches here, no breezy self-help slogans.

compelling insights from a thoughtful author Dec 26, 1999
Doug Webster in his new book Soulcraft; How God shapes us through relationships, offers mature insight regarding our relationships with one another and God. Webster argues that our relationships are the testing ground of our own obedience and faith in God, and that through our relationships God is able to refine and shape us into the image of Christ. Doug Webster looks at such issues as singleness, marriage, divorce, and homosexuality. The author is obviously well versed in the biblical text and he uses this to his advantage, offering to the reader what God has to say about the relationships we find ourselves in. Well written, insightful, and compelling, Soulcraft is a book for thinking individuals who are tired of formulaic answers and the endless sea of self-help books. Webster invites us to look seriously at our relationships and to realize that they all depend on our relationship with God.
