A New Way Of Living--Is Here!

(c) 2012 New Hope Publishers
My next book is here!  (The Kindle version) I am most excited about this one because it combines my love for physical exercise with my love for Scripture and spiritual exercise. 

Thanks to those of you who helped pick the cover. It looks great!

A New Way of Living: practicing the Beatitudes in everyday life, published by New Hope Publishers, is a training manual for spiritual growth. It follows the foundational path of spiritual development Jesus laid out at the beginning of his Sermon on the Mount, we call the Beatitudes. (Matthew 5:3-10)

My goal in the book is to apply what I have learned from running, cycling, and hiking to spiritual growth and wellness. I share spiritual exercises that create margin in our lives so that the characteristics Jesus describes in the Beatitudes can grow and flourish. Just as we develop physical wellness through a series of exercises and disciplines, we develop spiritual wellness through time-honored exercises that allow the Holy Spirit to grow us into the likeness of Jesus. 

The spiritual journey through the Beatitudes, like a long trail run or bike ride, requires spiritual exercises that enhance each step along the way so the Holy Spirit can strengthen and empower us. As we live with each characteristic, we look at the people Jesus blessed, the promise he made, the potential illness of the characteristic, and exercises that enhance it.

The paperback edition of A New Way of Living will not be released until the first of next year, but

you can get the Kindle version here or from the button below.
 
Please pray that the message of Jesus will be read by those who long for vitality and wellness in their spiritual lives. You can use the book as a personal or group Bible study on this important passage from Jesus' earliest teachings.

My other book with New Hope, Character: The Pulse of the Disciples Heart, was released earlier this year. You can order a copy here
