We are all on a life-journey for which there is neither a map r an itinerary. Howard E. Butt, Jr., takes us on his own life-journey along a road of pain, insight, love, and hope, illuminating the reader's way with wisdom and profound Christian faith. Addressing our personal need for reconciliation at its earliest and most intimate - between ourselves and our parents - Howard Butt recounts, with insights from both Scripture and psychiatry, his own experience and guidance for working through our relationships at home, in the workplace, and in the nation at large. His unique perspective shows how behavioral science gives new and fresh meaning to the Scriptures...and by doing so gives new and fresh meaning to life. Renewing America's Soul makes the dynamic paradox of the Trinity practical in everyday human relationships, showing its historic truth and reality as it really is: workable, pragmatic, all-embracing Good News! For Howard Butt, focusing on the God who is Triune offers us positive thinking about the negative conflicts of our times and of our lives. His is a personal and powerful guide for revitalizing marriages, families, and organizations, Christian faith-communities, and democracy itself.
