Description
 
Within our hearts is a longing. A cry for something our theologies can only point us to, never replace – intimacy with God.

Only when we pause to listen do we discover God speaking through us, tapping at the windowpane of our souls – telling us why we are here, where we are going, and what is required of us to complete the journey. Windows of the Soul is a rare book, reminding us that our search for God and his search for us meet at the windows of our everyday experiences.

With passion and honesty, Ken Gire shows that when we reach for God through our art and our prayers, our writing and our worship, even in our dreams, God reaches for us as well, speaking through the unexpected parables that surround us: a child’s need for significance . . . the masterpiece . . . the eloquence of sunlight dancing on water.

Gire points to a world infused with the voice of the One who can transform an ordinary experience into a life-changing discovery lit by his presence. God’s voice penetrates the clutter of our daily lives, speaking through Scripture and prayer, a painting or a poem, the remark of a friend, or a night sky filled with stars.

Windows of the Soul will open your eyes to a fresh way of seeing, hearing, and enjoying the presence of God in your life.
