Anxiety. Depression. Fear. Loneliness. These are all symptoms of a soul that has lost touch with its source of life. Like a flower snipped from the vine, the soul that is not turned toward God can only wither away.
In Soul Keeping, bestselling author John Ortberg sheds light on the most overlooked, underrated, and least-understood part of your being. With a workable and relevant approach, he shows how living the "with God" life isn't just a good idea--it's the only way to find lasting peace and satisfaction. Hardcover.

When is the last time you thought about the state of your soul?
The health of your soul isnt just a matter of saved or unsaved. Its the hinge on which the rest of your life hangs. Its 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. Weve neglected this eternal part of ourselves, focusing instead on the temporal concerns of the worldand not without consequence.
Bestselling author John Ortberg presents another classic that will help you discover your soulthe most important connection to God there isand 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 Christianitys most mysterious and neglected topics.
John Ortberg is senior pastor at Menlo Park Presbyterian Church in Menlo Park, California. He is the bestselling author of Who is this Man, The Life You've Always Wanted and If You Want to Walk on Water, You've Got to Get Out of the Boat. John and his wife, Nancy, have three grown children.

Larry853795 Stars Out Of 5an incredible study...October 2, 2014Larry85379Quality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5We did this in my small group. It was interesting in week 1, we opened by asking everyone to define what their soul is and what does it do? It became obvious, everyone felt they had one, however describing it and it's role was something many had not given a lot of thought to. We ended week 6 asking the same question, and their responses were encouraging. Now they know it is their responsibility to nurture a healthy soul and how to do it. John Ortberg and his friendship with Dallas Willard is nothing less than inspiring! The video content is clear and easy to follow. I heartily recommend this for small group study....
GrpLdrAge: 55-65Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Loved the BookSeptember 3, 2014GrpLdrAge: 55-65Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I just finished reading "Soul Keeping," and I loved it. I can't wait to go through it with the small group. The author describes the problem with our souls, he shares how the soul overlays and interacts with all of our being, and then he provides practical solutions on how to keep the soul healthy, based on what the soul needs. This is a great tool for those who have never considered the state of their souls or why they should think about their souls after praying the sinner's prayer. It's also helpful for those who want to care for their souls but need some reminders on how to do that. I appreciated the poignant story of Dallas Willard's life and death, and how he embodied the author's view of a life well-lived.
SparkyClare, MIAge: 45-54Gender: male5 Stars Out Of 5Soul Keeping - Nurturing our SoulAugust 3, 2014SparkyClare, MIAge: 45-54Gender: maleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5I feel privileged to have met Pastor Ortberg many years ago but more importantly I am thankful that he shares his personal struggles within his books, DVD's, sermons and other teachings. Without a doubt we all have struggles and heartaches. With wonderful teaching books like Soul Keeping we are encouraged along our own personal path of growth and service to a place where we can feel more normal and able to serve.
I've read some reviews that say that the reader felt that this book is a tribute to Dallas Willard, or that Pastor Ortberg obtained a lot of the material for this book from Dallas. I've been reading John's books for some twenty years and also listening/watching the sermons that he has delivered over the past decade and what I've seen is a man that is growing in his service to God our Father. As a result I've also grown from his teachings.
Soul Keeping, Caring for The Most Important Part of You draws from several of John's previous books, his sermons and certainly from the deeply personal mentoring that he was fortunate to have received from Dallas. In my humble opinion this book is the very best that John has written! I first read the book a couple of months ago, purchased the companion DVD and watched/studied it and am now rereading the book which I likely will do many more times.
Thank you Pastor Ortberg for caring for our souls and for helping us learn how to care more intimately for our own souls. As a result we can all grow closer to our Father and in our service to Him in this place.
RecipesDealsEtcAge: 35-44Gender: female5 Stars Out Of 5Honest, specific and written with loveMay 10, 2014RecipesDealsEtcAge: 35-44Gender: femaleQuality: 5Value: 5Meets Expectations: 5The Soul is quite the mystery isn't it? It is referred to very often in scripture and sung about in churches weekly, and yet defining the soul or locating it even can be a challenge. If you are feeling an emptiness and desire to see if your soul is calling to you, then this book is a great start. John Ortberg has written a lovely book, filled with kindness, humor and raw truth for any reader desiring to do exactly what the book says "care for the most important part of you". Ortberg takes the reader through his discussions with Dallas Willard and explains what he learned about the soul from Willard and then of course scripture as well. I appreciated how specifically and throughly Ortberg helps the reader self identify warning areas where the soul is concerned and also how the reader is not left empty but is given tools to learn how to care for themselves. This is a great read for any person desiring to grow deeper in their personal relationship with Jesus.
