The Art of Not Disappearing

Discover the Gift of Your God-Given Identity and Let it Shine Through

by Van Shore


Price: £7.99
Publisher:River Publishing from Joining the Dots Distribution
Published:26 September 2011
Children's hide and seek, is one thing....but after a while it's wearisome. Sadly as adults we imitate these patterns all too often. The challenge to true-self and a pursuit of authenticity is powerfully painted here...... Addressing secrets, shame and surrender excellently in a vulnerable, scriptural and autobiographical manner. A fear of self-disclosure and genuine intimacy causes us to mask our true selves and project an image that either we are comfortable with, or we believe others want to see. True God and true self get powerfully celebrated here.
Love, acceptance and purpose are the new possibilities laid before the reader. This is a fresh and compelling new work. Truly original concerning the Adam-&-Eve pattern first set and a powerful uncovering of theology for the complicated subtext of our lives! A great first write by Van Shore.
