The life you’ve always wanted: Spiritual disciplines for ordinary people. Grand Rapids, MI.: Zondervan. This book primarily deals with issues related to spiritual growth. Ortberg (1997) outlines a number of practices to reflect on his understanding of spiritual growth, hoping to convince the reader to live like Christ. By using statements like, “my failure to be the person God had in mind when he created me. It is the ‘pearly ache’ in my heart to be at home with the Father,” (Ortberg, 1997, p. 13) he invites the reader into his personal experiences to understand what he calls “It’s morphing time” (Ortberg, 1997, p. 21).

I have been struggling with this question for a very long time. I have asked myself how come Muslim friends of mine use a verse from Qur’an “if a Muslim kills one man it is as if he kills the whole world” to condemn terrorist attacks and the killing of innocent people?
Thank you for your partnership.

I launched this resource site in 2010 with a vision to challenge views and change hearts through comprehensive, thought-provoking writing, interviews, and discussions.
I share articles and posts on current world issues related to religion, theology, and politics. I seek to articulate the public meaning of faith, bringing the resources of religious tradition to bear on such topics as poverty, human rights, economic justice, international relations, national priorities, popular culture, and yes, even politics, as long as it is related to faith.
I occasionally publish posts by other authors to include a variety of voices. f you would like to write an article for this site, please contact me. I am interested in pieces that examine or critique the theology and ethos of individual religious communities, and I welcome articles that find fresh meaning in old traditions and that adapt or apply religious traditions to new circumstances. Please allow four to six weeks for a response.
