Face to Face

  • By Marty Folsom
Product Description
The fullness of human relating is not an accident, nor is it achieved alone. We are created to connect in this shared life as we gain tools and insights to collaborate as companions. In this second volume of Face to Face, Discovering Relational, journey with a relational theologian into the little-explored realm of personal relationships. Are you ready to discover practical steps to enter into ways of deeper knowing and being known? Allow a seasoned adventurer to guide you into moments of discovery through story, metaphor, and simple, penetrating thoughts. Written in rich and revealing language, this companion volume to Missing Love speaks wisdom toward living in joyful relationships. Discover a map to take you there in the pages of this innovative, groundbreaking book. Marty Folsom understands the joy and freedom in God's invitation to engage in deep relationships. I love the major themes he explores in the light of living face to face: paying attention, receiving life as a gift, prioritizing who you are and what you love, and focusing on being rather than doing or having. He illustrates all these themes with vivid quotations, engaging stories, and a Christ-centered focus. --Lynne M. Baab, author of Sabbath Keeping When a trained theologian with decades of real-life pastoring experience declares that 'we need to be more relational than rational or reasonable, ' it's a long overdue table-flipping moment in the temple of the religious intelligentsia. With deft empathy and deep spiritual conviction, Marty Folsom explores the experiential interplay between theological reflections and the relational matrix most of us intuit but lack language to describe. If more pastors taught these kinds of insights with this kind of compassion, church would be a much harder place to leave than it's proven to be so far. --Jim Henderson, author of Jim and Casper Go To Church Marty Folsom (PhD, Otago, NZ) teaches in the Seattle area at Northwest University and Trinity Lutheran College. He is also Executive Director of the Pacific Association for Theological Studies and a popular speaker on relational themes.
