“Looking upon the Heart: Volume 1: The Five Dispositions”: an in-depth book that teaches of the human heart through the Holy Bible’s kaleidoscope and its essence in forming a stronger relationship with God by His indwelling. “Looking upon the Heart: Volume 1: The Five Dispositions” is the creation of published author Pete Carlson, MFT, a Christian writer and evangelical psychotherapist, as well as a teacher, preacher, trumpeter, and a grateful husband and father.

Carlson shares, “By looking upon the heart we can all be changed in an instant and live life more abundantly!

“The mystery of the biblical heart is unveiled by integrating psychology and Scripture to delineate the five dispositions of the heart, the choice of which we morph into could either enhance or hinder the attainment of abundant life in Christ.

“Our first basic premise is that we all, believers and unbelievers alike, can and do spontaneously morph continually in and out of various dispositions, character states and personality styles, and so are capable of immediate transformation. The second premise is that grace must prevail; we all would be hypocrites if we judged, because we are all morphing, having our good moments and bad, at any particular moment in real time.

“Ultimately the overall perspective is that the heart should be the most important human entity known to man. The heart is the primary gatekeeper and decision-maker and, therefore, the overall determiner of the whole person’s behavior, personal growth, and spiritual maturity. We are to embrace a complete understanding of the biblical heart, its five dispositions, in order to overcome psychological, behavioral and relational dysfunction and sin. Only then can we successfully and consistently experience oneness with God through Jesus, living and actively operating within our hearts. As a result of ‘Looking upon the Heart,’ the Lord reigns and leads us to a life of victory in Jesus.”

Published by Christian Faith Publishing, Pete Carlson, MFT’s new book astutely analyzes the heart with spiritual eyes and unveils the Word’s message concerning its importance as God’s core vessel in which He will dwell and pour His grace.

This book examines the various dispositions of the heart and the component character styles to determine God’s guiding presence in human life.
