Christians often live life in their own heads, worrying about theology, orthodoxy and volition. But at our very core, we are relational beings created in the image of the relational, triune God. Because we are made by and for relationship with God and others, we discover and develop our God-given identity through relational connection. Our ability to make deep and emotionally satisfying connections rests on the capacity to trust well--and we all know that trust is hard. Early-life relational "programming" and patterns of attachment can serve as blueprints for relationships later in life, whether good or bad. But no matter our conditioning, God is out to reclaim and restructure the deepest terrain of the human soul by helping us shed our reactive "False Self" and put on our receptive "True Self." It is through spiritual disciplines and a conscious participation in the love of the Father, Son, and Spirit that we transform our self-awareness and our connection with other people. Authored by counselor Dr. Richard Plass and pastor Jim Cofield, The Relational Soul brings together the study of psychology and spiritual formation in a synthesized, easily understood format. Each chapter includes introductory stories and practical ?If this is true what about you questions to help readers engage in relationships in more life-giving ways. When the presence of Christ and community connects with a soul that is open, aware, and curious, we witness the miracle of transformation.
