Spiritual mentor Dr. Alicia Britt Chole, issues an invitation to unhurried honesty with God in her new book titled, "The Sacred Slow: A Holy Departure From Fast Faith", available September 26.

”In our hurried, cluttered age, faster has become synonymous with better, and experience has become a substitute for relationship” -- Alicia Chole, The Sacred Slow

In a culture that equates faster with better, Dr. Alicia Britt Chole invites all into the sacredness of a slower, steadier, more sustainable intimacy with Jesus. In "The Sacred Slow: A Holy Departure From Fast Faith", Chole offers a proven, accessible path for readers through 52 readings and exercises that can be taken at one’s own pace. Each chapter encourages readers to see every moment (not just the next event, project, or dream) as an opportunity to live intimately with God. The tone is at once personal, practical and piercing. "The Sacred Slow" (W Publishing Group, ISBN: 9780718094300) is available wherever books are sold on September 26.

”In our hurried, cluttered age, faster has become synonymous with better, and experience has become a substitute for relationship,” Chole says. She argues, though, that faster experiences do not necessarily translate into better relationships – with God or with others.

"The Sacred Slow" is deliberately designed to help readers experience true, honest and intimate life with God. Those who count C.S. Lewis, A.W. Tozer and Tim Keller among favorite authors will find Chole’s writing to be equally thought provoking.

“The title 'The Sacred Slow' not only describes the content but also describes Alicia and her writing. When you read Alicia’s writing, you quickly know she is a person who has a deep, rich, winsome, and life-giving relationship with God. She is such a gifted writer that every sentence and paragraph must be slowly pondered and absorbed. This book is a wonderful blend of insight, inspiration, and invitation.” –Lance Witt, Founder, Replenish Ministries
