On the journey, the reader discovers the ¡°sacred human,¡± God¡ ̄s will, the nature of true power, how to unravel the mystery of non-resistance, and much more. There is a lesson for each day of the year, and the reader is not only supported by the lesson, but asked to journal his or hers own thoughts and feelings. There are even exercises that help the reader experience the idea for that day. A Daily Guide to Spiritual Living is practical and yet mystical. It will help anyone find the balance between earthly living and a spiritual life.

Synopsis Free Study Guide Additional Retailers Dare to think beyond the ordinary and live above mere existence. An old hymn by William P. Merrill calls us to: "rise up [and] have done with lesser things" [emphasis added]. We must awaken to what is happening in our world and flee from folly. Escaping the seductive embrace of worldliness requires us to be vigilant. We must shun all distractions, deception and alluring digressions. Like repentant prodigals, we need to persistently run to our Father's protective and loving embrace. Even our temporal survival depends on this. It is a sad reality today that while many disregard God, others are misinformed about him. There is widespread digression from the truth. Each of these abnormalities leads to serious consequences. Hence, we must flee to God. This book discusses God's supremacy, sovereignty, and absolute attributes. God's purpose for his creation, mankind's fall, individual culpability, God's grace and salvation through Jesus Christ are examined. Among the key convictions conveyed is the fact that true liberation comes only from an obedient response to the transcendent supremacy and will of God. One cannot properly glorify God without a correct understanding and application of the truth. Therefore, seeking the truth is the most prudent engagement for mankind. All are called upon to appropriately respond to God. For some, this book may be the beginning of a long term exploration. For others, it may serve as the encouragement to continue in their commitment to the truth. Vital Truth and Precepts could serve as a resource for personal or group study. It provides useful teaching or study content for Sunday school teachers, as well as for professors and students in bible colleges and seminaries. New Christians and even people who are not followers of Christ might find it helpful in understanding the Christian faith.

Against Understanding, Volume 2, casts a spotlight on the status of case studies in psychoanalysis, which are commonly used to illustrate clinicians’ expertise and mastery rather than patients’ actual itineraries. When a case is presented, the complex, unwieldy, and often self-contradictory material of a therapeutic trajectory is often vastly oversimplified in view of producing a linear narrative that seems perfectly to fit the parameters of a practitioner’s preferred theoretical framework. Bruce Fink attempts to eschew the appearance of "mastery" in assembling clinical material and in discussing his approach to practice and theory in the myriad case histories and vignettes included in both Volumes 1 & 2 of Against Understanding. To counterbalance the kind of paring down of material usually carried out to make cases conform to a particular paradigm, the case write-ups presented here include much of the "raw data" so often omitted: verbatim quotes from patients about their lives, backgrounds, dreams, and fantasies; and details about the many obscure, vacillating, and unruly phases of treatment. Fink hopes thereby to allow readers to form their own opinions about the well-foundedness or unsoundness of his formulations, interpretations, and interventions. This second part of a two-volume collection of papers, interviews, and case studies provides the reader with hundreds of illustrations of Lacanian theory in practice, and will be essential for psychoanalysts, psychotherapists, psychiatrists, psychologists, social workers and counselors.
