An interview with Marty Folsom regarding his recent book series: Face to Face. snip.ly/t5osx
About the books:
Volume One: Missing Love - Face to Face is about personal relationships. Everyone talks as though they want one, but most of us are missing the strategies to live with this intimacy, especially with God. This book is an invitation to explore the "ah-ha" moments of a theologian who believes that theology should be practical and speak to where we live. Drawing from years of study in theology, biblical studies, counseling, and addiction therapy, this book is a creative conversation about what is missing in our most important element in life--our relationships. Its simplicity does not diminish its depth in penetrating some of the most complex questions of our age.
Volume Two: Discovering Relational - The fullness of human relating is not an accident, nor is it achieved alone. We are created to connect in this shared life as we gain tools and insights to collaborate as companions. In this second volume of Face to Face, Discovering Relational, journey with a relational theologian into the little-explored realm of personal relationships. Are you ready to discover practical steps to enter into ways of deeper knowing and being known? Allow a seasoned adventurer to guide you into moments of discovery through story, metaphor, and simple, penetrating thoughts. Written in rich and revealing language, this companion volume to Missing Love speaks wisdom toward living in joyful relationships. Discover a map to take you there in the pages of this innovative, groundbreaking book.
Volume Three: Sharing God's Life - Like falling in love, this book argues that a relationship with God begins with surprise, proceeds with discovery, and shapes a life that comes to share a story of love. This book does not describe God, but pursues the nature of personally relating with the triune God. Consequently, it also engages how we relate with humans made in God's image. We finish the Face-to-Face series with this most mysterious and fulfilling encounter--a personal engagement with the Relational God, known as a community of persons who invite us to share in their life.
