The Spacious Heart
Room for Spiritual Awakening
Published by: MennoMedia
Imprint: Herald Press
Why do people sometimes feel empty, estranged, and cynical? Many of us have tired of the pat answers that the church and religion have provided for our questions about faith and meaning in life. We know there's more--and we stand on the cusp of spiritual awakening, longing to reshape our connection with God. Weaving together theological reflection and story, authors Don Clymer and Sharon Clymer Landis serve as guides who have walked this unsettling journey, and gently give permission for readers to ask the hard questions to ultimately have greater intimacy and connection with God, themselves, and others.
This book helps those seeking greater intimacy and connection with God--those who know in their hearts that there is something more than the structures of church and religion, who are ready to explore something deeper.

<p>“A book of contrasts—co-authored by a brother and sister who share their personal journeys from cynicism to joy, from the North American culture of dissatisfaction to gratitude, from the mundane to spiritual awakening. This book is rich in personal stories and questions that challenge North American culture, provoke thought, and encourage spiritual growth.”</p> ~April Yamasaki, Reviews
