What story are you writing with your life? Does it celebrate beauty, goodness, and truth? James Bryan Smith believes that the stories we tell ourselves shape our lives. In this spiritual formation resource, he explains why the narratives we believe about the gospel, the cross, and God ultimately determine how our lives will unfold by defining our capacity for trusting, loving, hoping, and feeling joy. Includes 'Soul Training' exercises after each chapter and a group discussion guide. Hardcover.
