Item description for Reclaiming your story by Merle Jordan...

Overview
"Healing you inner child" is common cliche for one of the imperatives of popular psychology: overcoming childhood patterns of relationship and self-understanding in order to become an independent, mature adult. Taking this thinking deeper, Jordan argues that we must examine the dynamics in our families of origin in order to rid our psyches of hurtful assumptions about our spiritual selves and about the nature of God's love for us.

Publishers Description

Merle Jordan argues that many people spend their adult lives struggling to distinguish between the imperatives of divine authority and the deeply rooted psychological authority of family structures. Employing the wisdom of his experience as a pastoral psychologist as well as the insights of clinical researchers and therapists, Jordan offers ways to demythologize false absolutes and to refocus distorted maps of reality.

you can be happy only if you serve God  Dec 14, 2007
the author explains that fear is an idol and when we give up to fear, we serve an idol, not God. We are unhappy when we serve idols because we have not surrendered to God. this book helped me tremendosly in understanding how to be at pease with myself and everyone else. one of the best books i have ever read.

healing through self-knowlege and story  Jul 27, 2007
Helps the reader move into a fuller, more loving relationship with God, with others, and with him/herself by way of understanding and working to change beliefs about his/her place in his/her family of origin. Employing the wisdom of his experience as a pastoral psychologist as well as the insights of clinical researchers and therapists, the author offers ways (through storytelling) to demythologize false absolutes and to refocus distorted maps of reality. He then develops practical exercises to promote spiritual growth and poses carefully guided questions to enable self-understanding. The result is a strengthening of the power to love. The author is Professor of Pastoral Psychology at Boston University School of Theology.
 
God's Pursuit of You  Jun 21, 2000
Outstanding! There is an ancient proverb that says "Though it cost all you have, get understanding." This is the best book I have ever seen that combines the sprirtual reality and the psycological issues a person faces on life's journey.
