Individuals yearning for personal transformation will find inspiration and practical help in this brief guide from a veteran preacher and teacher. The key, says Dr. Jones, is an intentionally cultivated attitude of gratitude. Such an attitude leads to what he calls an inspired imagination that “unleashes new possibilities” for all God wants us to be. Beginning with the biblical story about Jesus calling Lazarus from the tomb, Jones weaves his own insights with the wisdom of poets, sages and beloved Jazz greats to inspire a life transformed by grace. Simple instructions for spiritual journaling are included. Calling Forth New Life can be used by individuals and small groups across the theological spectrum.
