Is there really any hope for a spiritual way of living that actually works?
Admiration, comfort, love, power, success, pleasure, escape, control: we’re all addicted to something, whether we realize it or not.
In this deeply heartfelt book, author John Ortberg offers a guide for transformation when we know something needs to change but we can’t do it on our own. Rooted in the teachings of Jesus and using the framework of AAs 12 steps as a guide, Ortberg offers all of us a freeing roadmap for:
Giving up our exhausting and fruitless efforts to fix, manage, and control our own lives
Distinguishing between when willpower is essential and when it is futile
Discovering how God can do for us what we can’t do for ourselves, and
living authentically, joyfully and in communion with God and other people.
Ortberg shows us how to discover:
Our spiritual attachment styles
Our core doubts
The benefits of practices like prayer, meditation, and mindfulness
God’s sufficiency in our inadequacy
In Steps, find what’s needed to experience a new freedom, a new fellowship and a new happiness no matter our circumstances.
