Item description for Soul Keeping: Ancient Paths of Spiritual Direction by Howard Baker...

Overview
Curious about spiritual direction? Take a balanced look at the means and barriers of living a directed life, and learn to delve into the Word, fellowship, pastoral guidance, and interaction with God. "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

Reviews - What do customers think about Soul Keeping: Ancient Paths of Spiritual Direction?

Soul Keeping: Ancient Paths of Spiritual Direction  Dec 29, 1999
I loved this book and highly recommend it to anyone looking to deepen their relationship with God. Unlike other books with "steps" or actions to take to enliven your relationship with God, this book provides practical advice, rooted in our Christian legacy, which actually draws you closer to God.
 
Great depth and spiritual wisdom  Jan 14, 1999
Few books guide us in how to actually come close to God -- and stay there. This book not only addresses the problems of meaninglessness, depression, and dryness that arise as we spiral further and further out of God's orbit; but also nails down the core problem: self-centeredness and self-will; and gives practical ways, historically proven by many saints, to move yourself back into relationship with God. Solidly based on the author's personal experience -- he writes of what he knows. Highly recommended if you truly have a desire to know God as revealed in Jesus.
