I recently read John Eldredge’s “Beautiful Outlaw” and loved it.
One particular section stuck out to me:
I have spent most of my adult years trying to find those keys that would enable people to become whole. Like an archaeologist raking for buried treasure, I’ve combed through the provinces of counseling, spiritual discipline, inner healing, deliverance, addiction recovery – anything that would help me help others get better. Like Schliemann when his shovel struck the buried ruins of Troy, the epiphany I have come to is this:
Jesus has no intention of letting you become whole apart from his moment-to-moment presence and life within you.
That described me perfectly and hit me like a ton of bricks.
If you’re looking for a new book to read, “Beautiful Outlaw ” is one that belongs on the list of Stuff (This) Christian Likes.
