This new IlluminationBook is a gentle invitation to be liberated from fear by God's unconditional love. God delights in being in our presence and in loving us just as we are right now. If we can recognize that this unconditional love is always available, if we can let ourselves be loved, we can let go of fear.
Using references from literature, from classic and contemporary theologians and psychologists, and from his own practice, the author walks us through common fears that hold us back: fear of joy, loss, intimacy, pain, and letting go.

-- blends contemplative spirituality with psychology
-- is ideal for both personal and therapeutic use
