Soulcraft: the art of discerning, applying and enjoying the wisdom of God in every aspect of life. There are many books on relationships, how to improve communication, resolve conflict, have more fun, get more serious. This book is not one of them. Rather, this is a special book that reveals how God makes us and molds us inot the people he wants us to be as we work and play and cry and laugh with each other in the daily grind of life. Proverbs tells us that "as iron sharpens iron, so one person sharpens another." Similarly, this book explores how God uses other people to craft us and form our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses everyday relationships so we can love him with our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses other people to craft us and form our spiritual lives. Whether with friends, spouses or children, God uses everyday relationships so we can love him with our hearts, mind, strength and soul.
All relationships were designed to be God-centered. Soulcraft encourages us to look at life differently -- not from the self-oriented perspective of the world. Soulcraft sees our identity and sexuality from God's fresh point of view. Soulcraft not only gives us new reasons for joy but also gives us the strength to meet the burdens of brokenness and grief in relationships. Soulcraft is the adventure of a lifetime. God invites you to join him in it. "Soulcraft invites us into the workshop of a pastor practicing his craft, soulcraft. There are no cliches here, no breezy self-help slogans. This is serious stuff indeed. What our culture trivializes, this pastor treats with enormous respect. Doug Webster bring a biblicallydisciplined mind and a reverent Christ-attentiveness to the details of what matters most to all of us, over very souls." --Eugene H.
