With a workable and relevant approach, he shows how living the "with God" life isn't just a good idea--it's the only way to find lasting peace and satisfaction. Hardcover.

When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul?
The health of your soul isnt just a matter of saved or unsaved. Its the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. Its the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith.
In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. Weve neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the worldand not without consequence.
Bestselling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soulthe most important connection to God there isand find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg brings practicality and relevance to one of Christianitys most mysterious and neglected topics.

He is reading another book and I promised not to read his new books before him. John Ortberg's other book: The Life you have always wanted was great. Looking forward to this one.

So much more is revealed the second time through. Ortberg pulls back the curtain on the soul. Very educational. Very encouraging. I'm buying two more for Christmas.
RWH5 Stars Out Of 5Soul KeepingMarch 9, 2015RWHQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5Over 50 years of Christian life and study and I found this book and study one of the best ever. This is a topic every Christian should know and understand, and yet it is seldom preached or discussed. What great insight on how we can walk closer to God every moment. You need this in your life. Be sure and get the DVD ... it is outstanding!
jimmyboy5 Stars Out Of 5Must read !December 12, 2014jimmyboyQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5This man has produced some wonderful books. and I believe this one is among his best. As a highly educated man of faith, his perspectives for the Christian, who is serious about joyfully living the life for which he/she is here on earth, are invaluable. Full of references to Scripture, the truths found in this book are not only presented in a highly readable and enjoyable fashion, but most helpful in understanding and getting the most out of one's existence.
JazzyPeaAge: 25-34Gender: female4 Stars Out Of 5Soul KeepingNovember 17, 2014JazzyPeaAge: 25-34Gender: femaleQuality: 4Meets Expectations: 3This book came at a right time for me as restlessness stirred in my soul that I just could not pinpoint. That said, this is a bit of a heavy read if you really want to take something out of it. I found it best (as I read it twice) to approach it like a personal Bible study and give myself time to explore, digest, and apply what I read.
In Soul Keeping, John Ortberg explores the enigma that is the human soul and how we should care for the innermost part of our beings. Ortberg describes the should as the thing that "integrates your will (your intentions), your mind (your thoughts and feelings, your values and conscience), and your body (your face, body language, and actions) into a single life". He explores how our souls long to connect, mainly with God and different things in our lives that drain our soul of its health. Ortberg draws heavily upon conversations and wisdom from his friend and mentor Dallas Willard.
The book resonated with me because there have been times I've literally felt like my soul was dying. Ortberg's book provided good insight on how to address soul issues from the inside, how to distinguish between what is causing your soul's unrest, and ways to simplify and declutter your mind in order to seek peace. This is a heavy read as far as substance, content, and application, but not necessarily readability. Ortberg's style is approachable and relatable.
I received a free copy of this book from the publisher in exchange for my review. I was not required to post a positive review.
