by Kevin Scherer
Our first parents departed from what it means to be truly human when they ate from the forbidden tree. Ever since, humans have been working with corrupted minds and wills, employing a distorted approach to life. Kevin Scherer calls this “psycho-logic,” and he knows how it can lead us on a downward spiral to misery. How do we get back to the Garden? By allowing Christ to renew our minds, using the tried-and-true spiritual practices of the Orthodox Faith.
- Hopeful and accessible wisdom for working through the wounds and failures of your past
- A Christ-centered approach to finding human freedom and fulfillment
Endorsement: “A very personal and moving account of trying to make sense of what it means to be human in a broken world and with a broken humanity. Drawing upon many resources—Scripture, personal encounters, the wisdom of the ancient ascetics, and the insights of contemporary counseling—Kevin Scherer offers us all a way of finding the grace of God in our fragility and weakness. This book will be sure to touch many people.” —V. Rev. Dr. John Behr, Dean, St. Vladimir’s Orthodox Theological Seminary, New York
