I’m excited for Jeff Crosby’s latest book releasing today. If you’ve ever felt a longing you just couldn’t quite pin down, I think you should be, too. If you read it, I’d love to hear what you think!
A beautiful literary exploration of the spiritual longings of our souls that guide us to meet our heart’s true home—God—in their midst.
For over fifteen years, Jeff Crosby has been searching for a language of the soul—a way to articulate our deepest longings. Through the years he gathered clues from within global music styles, from different cultures, from his own Christian tradition and its sacred texts—and from deep within himself.
A lover of words, he sought not only to translate our longings into words but to understand why these seemingly universal yearnings have long remained unnamed. In The Language of the Soul: Meeting God in the Longings of Our Hearts, Crosby gifts us with those so-often-untranslatable desires of our hearts, guiding us to finally find the words and luminous insights for our own longings for home, for friendship, for forgiveness, and for transformation–and how God meets us in the midst of these longings. Eschewing easy answers, Crosby begins the naming process, helping us to make connections–and to recognize, within ourselves and our faith, our heart’s true home.
