In the midst of going to work, attending church, teaching Sunday school, raising children, praying, spending time with your spouse, reading your Bible, investing in friendships, and occupying yourself with the business of life, do you feel like you're merely existing -- instead of living? Do you feel that something must be missing, and in the hectic pace of life you simply stand back and ask, "What more can I do?" There must be more to life than mere existence -- after all, Jesus promised an abundant life. But fearing that answering passion's call may lead to selfishness or sin, too many of us settle for less and remain caught between the call to love God and the insistent desire to live passionate lives. The danger of living this way, writes Jeff Imbach, is that when we repress or deny our passion, "we turn Christian spirituality into a boring, insipid, religious piety largely unrelated to life". We settle for frenetic activity, hoping that our activity will prove the depth of our religious life in God. If you're tired of looking at a world full of people who seem to be running headlong into life and fully enjoying it while you avoid life because you're afraid it may take you away from God, you need to read this book. "The River Within" will open your eyes to a new way of living out your passions that brings you closer to God and plunges you into the joy of life.
Jeff Imbach resolves one of the great dilemmas of discipleship-how to love God deeply and still embrace life passionately.
