Practicing The Way of Jesus: Life Together in the Kingdom of Love.  So many of us want to live in the way of Jesus-- pursuing a life that is deeply soulful, connected to our real needs and good news to our world. Yet too often our methods for growth are individualistic, information driven or disconnected from the details of every day life. How can we close the gap between how we want to live and how we actually live? This book explores how to rediscover a sense of immediacy and action in our spiritual lives.  IVP 2011
