Sacred Pathways teaches nine distinct spiritual temperaments, and their strengths, weaknesses, and tendencies, to help you improve your spiritual life and deepen your personal walk with God.
It's time to peel away the frustration of a one-size-fits-all spirituality and find a path of worship that fees you to be you. Experienced spiritual directors, pastors, and church leaders know that all of us connect with God differently, and it's about time we do too.
In this updated and expanded edition of Sacred Pathways, Gary Thomas reveals nine distinct spiritual temperaments and, like the Enneagram and other personality tools, encourages you to investigate the ways you most naturally express yourself in your relationship with God. He encourages you to dig into traits, strengths, and pitfalls in your devotional approach so you can remove the barriers that keep you stuck in rigid methods of worship and praise.
As you start to identify and understand your own temperament, you'll learn more about the temperaments that aren't necessarily you but that may help you grasp the spiritual tendencies of friends, family, and those around you.
Whatever temperaments or blend of temperaments best describes you, rest assured, it's not by accident. You are a product of the design of the Creator who knew what He was doing when He made you according to His own unique intentions. If your spiritual walk isn't what you want it to be, you can start her to change that. Sacred Pathways will reveal the route you were made to travel, marked by growth and filled with the riches of a close walk with God.
