A Little Handbook on Having a Soul by David Hansen

-- Helps us recapture the essence of ourselves -- our souls.<BR>-- Inspiring, vivid storytelling provides appreciation for beauty, goodness, truth and holiness.<BR>-- Critiques contemporary culture for its materialism.<BR>-- Expands our knowledge of God and his creation of us in his image.<P>The soul is more like a river than a street, more like a forest than a city, and more like a wild trout than a laboratory rat. Thanks be to God.<P>Pastor-Flyfisherman David Hansen worries that we have a much too thin and tepid understanding of the soul.<P>Christians once saw the soul as the essential human being, the center of all we knew to be true, good and beautiful. Now we are so materialistic that the prospect of heaven -- where the soul is supposed to be ultimately alive -- can seem boring.<P>In language wondrously grounded and sometimes poetic, yet always as clear as Montana mountain air, Hansen sets out to recover a more (if you will) full-bodied view of the soul. He then leads readers on a vigorous workout of the souls capacity to nurture and enjoy beauty, goodness, truth and holiness. And finally he exhilaratingly traces the course of the Christian souls redemption.<P>Shot through with lively scenes of Hansens beloved parishioners and trout streams, this book poignantly reminds a soulless age what its like to have a soul and inspires in us the longing to possess one again.
