About the Book
One of the greatest Christian thinkers and writers on spiritual formation today, Dr. James Houston thoughtfully examines what is at the core of every human soul: a longing for intimacy with God. In each book, Houston examines an aspect of what it means to truly experience the most profound of all relationships.
1: The Desire "Desire is the throbbing pulse of human life. What we long for determines the scope of our experiences, the depth of our insights, the standards by which we judge, and the responsibility with which we choose our values."
2: The Fulfillment In this important volume, Dr. James Houston explores the nature of happiness and the world's supposed answers. Then he holds Christ up as the definitive example of truly fulfilled happiness.
Features and Benefits. Readers are led into the depths of essential spiritual formation by one of the great spiritual mentors of our time. Readers are challenged to know God on a deeper level. Readers are challenged on the level of Jonathan Edwards or John Owen.
