When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul? Bestselling author John Ortberg guides you through practical steps to restoring your soul so you can finally experience a life of wholeness, balance, and hope.

In an age of materialism and consumerism where many people try to buy their way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. We've neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the world--and not without consequence.

Including reflections from his decades-long relationship with his friend and mentor Dallas Willard, Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soul--the most important connection to God there is--and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth.

Join Ortberg as he guides you through the three distinct aspects of Soul Keeping:

  • Discovering what the soul is
  • Learning what the soul needs
  • Experiencing the joy of a restored soul

With his characteristic insight and an accessible, story-filled approach, Ortberg will help you connect more deeply every day with the God who gave you life to bring more meaning, hope, and abundance to that life.

Praise for Soul Keeping:

"This book will not only help you to realize that you have a soul, an interior life, and reveal its importance, but will also give you some tools and handles to grab as you develop that life. It will help you to get grounded again, or even for the first time, with the One who first breathed that life into you, and Who desires every day to breathe more and more life into every corner of your being."

--Dr. Henry Cloud, New York Times bestselling author of Boundaries and Changes That Heal

Top Highlights

“Your soul is what integrates your will (your intentions), your mind (your thoughts and feelings, your values and conscience), and your body (your face, body language, and actions) into a single life. A soul is healthy — well-ordered — when there is harmony between these three entities and God’s intent for all creation. When you are connected with God and other people in life, you have a healthy soul.” (source)

“‘Hurry is the great enemy of spiritual life in our day. You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.’” (source)

“The most important thing in your life,’ Dallas said, ‘is not what you do; it’s who you become. That’s what you will take into eternity. You are an unceasing spiritual being with an eternal destiny in God’s great universe.’” (source)

“‘What matters is not the accomplishments you achieve; what matters is the person you become.’” (source)

“he said slowly, ‘You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life.’” (source)
