This book is a realistic – almost raw – tour guide to a secret place within each of us where we rarely take others and seldom even go ourselves. In this place dwells the true self, concealed – most often even from our consciousness – beneath facades of security, success, and even religiosity that we present to the world. We see how almost all of us unconsciously construct a personality that is designed to win us the love and approval we so desperately need and want, and how we feel anxious, and even angry when someone seems to see through our perception of ourselves. This is a powerful Christian witness to how God will go with us to the ends of our inner lives, and bring us back alive, freer to become the people we were designed to be. We watch the author go into this secret place, and with God’s help and acceptance, begin to see and name his own bruised, sinful and starving spiritual parts. He reveals this in order to help other lonely, confused brothers and sisters bring their anxious, tired souls out into the light of God’s love – to heal together, and laugh and love with God’s other healing children. Bottom line: this is a book about an unseen journey toward inner freedom in Christ with spiritual map included.
