Publisher's Summary

Sacred Pathways reveals nine distinct spiritual temperaments - and their strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies - to help you improve your spiritual life and deepen your personal walk with God.

It's time to strip away the frustration of a one-size-fits-all spirituality and discover a path of worship that frees you to be you. Experienced spiritual directors, pastors, and church leaders recognize that all of us engage with God differently, and it's about time we do too.

In this updated and expanded edition of Sacred Pathways, Gary Thomas details nine spiritual temperaments and - like the Enneagram and other tools do with personality - encourages you to investigate the ways you most naturally express yourself in your relationship with God. He encourages you to dig into the traits, strengths, and pitfalls in your devotional approach so you can eliminate the barriers that keep you locked into rigid methods of worship and praise.

Plus, as you begin to identify and understand your own temperament, you'll soon learn about the temperaments that aren't necessarily "you" but that may help you understand the spiritual tendencies of friends, family, and others around you.

Whatever temperament or blend of temperaments best describes you, rest assured it's not by accident. It's by the design of a Creator who knew what he was doing when he made you according to his own unique intentions. If your spiritual walk is not what you'd like it to be, you can change that, starting here. Sacred Pathways will show you the route you were made to travel, marked by growth and filled with the riches of a close walk with God. 

A Sacred Pathways video Bible study is also available for group or individual use, sold separately. 

Accompanying exercises and discussion questions are available in the audiobook companion PDF download.

PLEASE NOTE: When you purchase this title, the accompanying PDF will be available in your Audible Library along with the audio.

good content but really long.

I liked this but at time hard to follow. it gave me a different perspective overall. Found that in some areas it drags on then inject a good point.

Not what I expected, but what my heart needed

Thank you Gary for showing me how to truly love myself and translate that into a greater Love for God and his children.
