Soul Shaping: A new resource for spiritual formation

I'm holding in my hands this morning the final proof of Soul Shaping. I'm grateful that David C Cook will publish this important resource. It's actually the first resource that Gwen and I developed when founding Potter's Inn six years ago. In this resource, I use the timeless image of the potter and clay to help us understand what God is up to in our lives; how the shaping of our lives began in our mother's womb and how being re-shaped and molded really happens throughout our lives in relationships, time with God, work, and more. I'm excited because we have seen first-hand how useful, practical and user-friendly this guide really is and it's been tested in several churches and small groups with tremendous feedback.It's one of the missions of Potter's Inn to produce resources for people in their spiritual journeys. This guide will really help!The resource will release in January or February 2011. It's the ideal tool for churches, groups and individuals to use in their quests to understand spiritual formation.'Biblically deep, artistically rich, personally challenging, and user friendly. Sou Shaping by Steve Smith is the finest resource I have seen for the serious pursuit of personal transformation. If you desire to be formed by the loving hands of the Master Potter, this is your guide for becoming moldable clay."--Howard Baker, Denver Seminary and author of Soul Keeping
