Publisher's Description

In his most significant book to date, Dr. Larry Crabb expands on his lifelong work in the field of psychotherapy to adopt a groundbreaking, but biblical, approach to healing the deep wounds of the soul-an approach that centers around building intimate, healing mini-communities in our lives and churches.

Dr. Crabb envisions a day when communities of God's people-ordinary Christians whose lives connect as husband to wife, brother to sister, friend to friend-will accomplish most of the healing that we now depend on mental health professionals to provide.

God has deposited within us the power to heal soul-disease and that power is released to do its work as we relate to each other in revolutionary new ways. In challenging, practical language, Dr. Crabb shows us how.

This revised and updated edition now includes a full workbook for those who want to better learn how to connect with the hearts and souls of those around them.

    This review was written for Connecting.
    I've only begun the book but what I've read so far has been a wonderful new perspective and less of a how-to. It's nice to be reminded of things that I already knew and have a new light shed on them as well. I would highly recommend this book to anyone who genuinely wants to reach people and help them as well as be renewed themselves.

    This review was written for Connecting.
    In many ways, "Connecting" began something of a shift in the focus of Larry Crabb's writings. No doubt, the seeds had always been there--seeds that continue to germinate into full-blown spiritual direction. Crabb's later books, like "Soul Talk," have continued Crabb's journey, to switch metaphors, from biblical psychologist to spiritual director. In "Connecting," Crabb explains why and how the church, and everyday relationships between Christians, ought to be the main place where spiritual maturity occurs. The subtitle, "Healing Ourselves and Our Relationships," was likely more an editorial and marketing decision, than a reflection of Crabb's focus. For "Connecting" highlights Christlikeness much more than emotional healing. It is in "Connecting" that Crabb begins to underscore what has been a major emphasis in his later writing and ministry--the new heart of the renewed believer according to the new covenant. Unlike "Inside Out," that at times felt like "inner sin spotting," "Connecting" teaches more about listening to the good work that the Holy Spirit is already doing in a believers life. This is truly refreshing since much of modern Christian counseling has counseled believers as if they were still unbelievers with the old heart of the old covenant. In many ways Crabb was ahead of the trends with "Connecting." Many post-modern, emergent Christian writers are now emphasizing (echoing?) the church as the place where spiritual formation takes place. Of course, Christ, Peter, and Paul taught this 2000 years ago, and saints have practiced it for the past 2000 years. "Connecting" won't tell you all the "how tos" of spiritual friendship. It will tell you the why (the new covenant) and motivate you to relate deeply as spiritual friends. Reviewer: Dr. Robert W. Kellemen is the author of "Soul Physicians: A Theology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction" and "Spiritual Friends: A Methodology of Soul Care and Spiritual Direction."
