Sounds of guilt, anxiety, anger, despair, and even entertainment can generate overwhelming noise in our souls. The quiet rest and joy promised by the Lord Jesus can seem illusive, and almost impossible. Yet His words still beckon to us: “Come unto Me, all ye that labor and are heavy laden, and I will give you rest.” (Matthew 11:28)
Dr. Jim Berg has come out with a new book called Quieting a Noisy Soul. At first I thought the last word was “son” and wondered if it was a book about child discipline, but then I read the introduction and discovered my error. (No doubt noisy sons need help, too.)
If you are not familiar with Dr. Berg, you should read this description of him. Just the picture on that page, won me over. The web site also gives a good introduction to each book and the media which accompanies it. For the new book, a DVD video series is also available. You can view a sample here.
If this book is anything like his previous works, it ought to be a worthwhile read.
