The longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart. For Christ-followers, it is the chasm between what we say we believe in our minds and what we truly believe in our hearts: a split between our statements about God and our experience of Him. This divide is everywhere around us, causing untold devastation. It is found in the double lives of believers and in the hypocrisy of church leaders, but mainly we see it in ourselves. It is the default position of every human heart.
In Divided: When the Head and Heart Don’t Agree, Bill Delvaux exposes this divide and offers strategies to tackle it. The actual journey to cross the divide is sketched out, an epic journey that will take us into our deepest fear and shame and on into the wonder of God’s presence. For becoming undivided is not just another task. It’s the pathway into the very heart of the Father.
- Strategies for closing the divide between head and heart
- Specific prayers for each stage of the spiritual journey
- Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection
