    Minding the Heart The Way of Spiritual Transformation by Robert Saucy is a monograph about the Bible s definition of the heart and its role in a Christian s spiritual formation Unlike other books in academia, Saucy establishes a working definition for the heart as understood by the authors of the Bible and integrates it with the current findings of psychology and biology This work is both scholarly and practical, serving as a bridge between the serious researcher and the lay person who wants to know how he or she can be transformed and experience the abundant life.Saucy considers the importance of the heart and its role in living the abundant life that Jesus spoke of in John 10 He spends a considerable amount of time laying the foundation for what he deems is the biblical definition of the heart a person s intellect, emotions, and will and seeks to establish what is meant by the authors of the Bible when they use the word heart in their writings Saucy argues, much like the biblical writers, that the heart is central to the person and the heart affects everything people do and vice versa Because of this, Christians need their hearts to be transformed in order for them to experience t...

    I am passionate about spiritual transformation However many books on spirituality and spiritual disciplines suggest a variety of practices but do not communicate a sufficient theological basis for them Robert Saucy addresses this lack by taking a systematic look at what the Bible says about transformation in Minding the Heart the Way of Spiritual Transformation Saucy is a systematic theologian at Talbot School of Theology He is chiefly known for his writings on Progressive Dispensationalism, Complementarianism, and Ecclesiology I am in disagreement with his position in all of those areas however I think that this book makes an important contribution to a robust Evangelical spirituality Saucy s understanding of spiritual transformation is biblically grounded and holistic.There are fourteen chapters in this book In chapter one, Saucy argues that as Christians we attain the abundant life that Christ promises through pursuit of our spiritual growth But the way to grow in Christ is through spiritual transformation This happens through a heart change In chapters two through four, Saucy describes the inner dynamics of the heart Saucy asserts that in the Bible, the heart represents the control center of the whole person their thoughts, emotions and volition In fact the heart is the real person chapter 2 Because of human fallen ness the heart is deceitful and does not behave as it should chapter 3 Real lasting change will take self examination and self understanding cha...

    Spiritual transformation what is it How do we accomplish it Much of what is called discipleship is nothing than coaching to do better and try harder leaving one feeling spiritually exhausted and discouraged This is not the approach taken by Robert Saucy in Minding the Heart The Way of Spiritual Transformation Saucy s singular focus is in the title to this delightfully refreshing book Minding the Heart The author takes you on a journey through scripture to uncover the meaning of Heart in all of it s uses The ideas shown in the book from scripture may feel a little strange to the modern mind set, but with the helpful explanation of the author the spiritual significance comes to light There are thirteen pages of a triple column scripture index at the back of the book that may well be worth the price of the book I know I will be referring to it often Robert Saucy takes you on a journey of the heart in scripture You will learn what the heart is, what is it s nature, what is a heart that God desires, and what all this means for you This journey is not pop psychology but scripture It is well worth the effort and will have a profound affect on your life This work is a great gift from the author...
