How to Glorify God in a World that Prioritizes Personal Gain
Many people today feel harried and empty, driven by an unrelenting ambition to accomplish something big and meaningful. Yet in contrast to the constant pressure we feel to achieve, Scripture defines success altogether differently.
In Survival Guide for the Soul, bestselling author and pastor Ken Shigematsu speaks poignantly about overcoming the obstacles that keep us from flourishing in our spiritual lives. He reveals the secret to a robust inner spiritual life: rejecting the temptation to validate ourselves through the pursuit of significant achievement and embracing a life of gratitude, knowing that we are already beloved as a son or daughter of God.
Drawing on a wide range of sources—including Scripture, church history, psychology, neuroscience, and a rich variety of stories from his own life—Shigematsu offers a fresh perspective on how certain spiritual practices help orient our lives so that our souls can flourish in a demanding and competitive world.
