Publisher's Summary

When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul? The health of your soul isn't just a matter of saved or unsaved. It's the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. It's the difference between deep, satisfied spirituality and a restless, dispassionate faith. In an age of materialism and consumerism that tries to buy its way to happiness, many souls are starved and unhealthy, unsatisfied by false promises of status and wealth. We've neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the world - and not without consequence. Best-selling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soul - the most important connection to God there is - and find your way out of the spiritual shallow-lands to true divine depth. With characteristic insight and an accessible story-filled approach, Ortberg brings practicality and relevance to one of Christianity's most mysterious and neglected topics.

    "Dallas Willard for Dummies"

    I have read several of Dallas Willard's books. Some of them with friends who were equally intent on gleaning just some of the rich insights they presented. And we did, however always with some frustration and disappointment because we knew there was more.
    John Ortberg has given people like me—and I know there are more—a gift. His account of his personal pilgrimage with Dallas as his mentor has afforded me a better understanding of some of the concepts I longed to understand from some of Dallas' writings.
    Thank you, John. I mean no disrespect for the headline of this review...only gratitude.

    "Good Book - poor narrator"
    What did you like best about Soul Keeping? What did you like least?

    Great Ideas - much of which are a summary of Dallas Willard's thoughts on Spiritual Formation. Ortberg is funny and has a great voice - it's too bad he did not narrate this audio book. It really detracted from his ideas that the narrator failed to capture his humor or proper emphasis.

    "Excellent, meditative, and challenging!"

    "You must ruthlessly eliminate hurry from your life." This book not only delves into why but touches on how. An excellent read and read with excellence. Highly recommended.

    "Starts slow, ends well"

    I felt like the beginning took a long time establishing "what is the soul," but maybe that was helpful for some.
    Last half was excellent and inspiring.

    Story
    "Good for Dallas Willard fans"

    Ortberg remembers his friendship with the late author, philosopher, and Christian apologist, and his (Ortberg's) own spiritual development over the course of more than 20 years. He discusses the need of the soul for rest. He is reassuring, even on the subject of the "dark night of the soul." The text is not very demanding (you might want to investigate St. John of the Cross), and it is at its best in the passages on Willard, whose books are very rich and rigorous. All in all, a good introduction to Willard, who is a wise man worth knowing. (His final book is to be published posthumously soon.)

    "An Amazing Story of The Soul's Real,Journey"

    Ortberg tells some of the story of his journey in understanding the truth and reality of our human's soul need. His many encounters with Dallas Willard drew him into a hunger for a real soul relationship with The Real Lover and Keeper of our soul. His honesty is so very refreshing and vital to understand that I am truly the keeper of my soul.

    "Good, could be better."
    Where does Soul Keeping rank among all the audiobooks you’ve listened to so far?

    It's a good book to listen to while driving.


    What other book might you compare Soul Keeping to and why?

    Seat of the Soul by Gary Zukav


    Did the narration match the pace of the story?

    Yes


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    Yes


    Any additional comments?

    There's a gap that's missing in this book. He didn't mention the role of the Holy Spirit in Soul keeping. Maybe he was thinking of secular readers while writing it. It'd make more sense and deeper meaning if John acknowledged the Holy Spirit as the Keeper of our Soul.
