The Judeo-Christian tradition recognizes the human heart as both the reflective and motivational center of the human being. Scriptural passages in both the Old and New Testament affirm the importance of our hearts in matters of spirituality and how we live out our faith. Using the metaphor of a "fenced in heart," Janis Wasco and Molly Keating's new release from Christian self-publisher Xulon Press, Unlocking Our Fenced in Hearts: By Listening to the Voice of Love (paperback, 978-1-60477-868-7), will help the reader identify seven different emotional barriers that can prevent them from hearing and discerning God's voice within.
Say the co-authors, "While the world finds new ways to divide us, God's call to us to join the body of Christ has been constant. The search for meaning has brought us to an age where we are today free to interpret spirituality in deeply personal definitions. This is especially true for women, as we find new places to share at His table. Our book is a tool to guide women through a sense of spiritual purpose and fulfillment by helping them to embrace their God voice by unlocking the fences that hold their hearts captive."
The new title is already being hailed as a "must-read book" by Amata Fabbro of Aquinas College, who says, "It will not gather dust on anyone's bookshelf. Through a wonderfully sensitive use of God's Word, their personal experiences, and the words of others, Jan and Molly awaken us to God's waiting love."
Molly Keating is a spiritual director and is active in contemplative outreach. Janis Wasco is a Stephen and youth minister and an adjunct faculty member who teaches at a Christian college in Grand Rapids, Michigan.
Xulon Press, a part of Salem Communications Corporation, is the world's largest Christian publisher, with more than 5,000 titles published to date. Retailers may order Unlocking Our Fenced in Hearts through Ingram Book Company and/or Spring Arbor Book Distributors.
