Item Description...
"Life can be pretty unmerciful," writes Dr. Tim Clinton. "Loss of a loved one, loss of a job, a financial challenge or ruin, betrayal, a bad marriage, an illness like cancer: all involve that sick feeling that life is not the way it is supposed to be. When it isn't, we work to recover what we lost. If the answers don't come quickly, stomachs start to turn, ulcers bleed, tempers flare, and the wounds begin to go deep into the soul."

Those soul-deep wounds can ignite spiritual and emotional devastation, Dr. Clinton warns, unless you stop the downward spiral into despair. "The good news," Dr. Clinton writes, "is that God is always at work to win our hearts. He loves to use our brokenness and powerlessness to send us fleeing back to Him. There is a path to healing if you will cast your eyes on the Lover of your soul!"

Publishers Description
Noted counselor and author Dr. Tim Clinton writes about overcoming the troublesome things of your past in order to face a brighter future.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A very strong message  Mar 25, 2007
Clinton's book is for anyone who has experienced pain and loneliness--and lives with the ongoing consequences. It is also for people who keep themselves so busy that they don't have time to feel, because in a small still place within their minds, they fear the negative feelings that they would experience.

Several themes weave themselves throughout the book. One is what I would call the stages of alienation and addiction, combined with the cycle of restoration. It is both a downward and upward spiral that looks like this:

Losing heart: the Descent into Pain
Ambushed and assaulted, Anger, Anxiety, Alonenes, Alienation, Arrogance, Adulteries of the Heart and Addiction

Alive Again! Accountability, Action, Attachments, Awareness, Assessment , Affection of God

Recovery of the Heart: Coming Out of Pain

This is not your typical self-help book, nor even your typical Christian self-help book. For the reader who is willing to look in the mirror there is specific, meaningful help.

His food for thought:

"What are your biggest fears? Failure? Being seen as less than perfect? Losing a position? Losing a loved one? Abandonment? Fear of others hurting you?"

"When we live with unsatisfied souls, we will pour almost anything into them to appease our hunger."

"Spouses and parents, for instance, devote so much time and energy rushing from place to place that they don't devote time and effort to creating and preserving meaningful relationships..."

He echoes Robert McGee who said that the devil's definition of self worth is "My performance plus the opinion of others." And those who accept that lie are on the slippery slope toward alienation and addiction.

One final thought: He challenges you to: "Examine everything in your life that suddenly takes on huge meaning and begins to give you purpose, meaning, and value. If God isn't at the core and intimately involved with its pursuit, then you may be playing the lead in a tragedy. You are embracing the gods of distraction and your newfound "loves" will never satisfy you." And those distractions may be workaholism, drugs, alcohol, or any other false solution to a lack of relationship and connection--to God first, and then to each other.

This not a light read, but for those desiring a sense of connection and relationship, Clinton provides specific action steps to go from where you are to where you want to be.

Armchair Interviews says: This might just be a book your life needs.
Finding Your Heart Again  Mar 21, 2007
Tim Clinton writes with the conviction that only God's changeless truth can change lives. Buttressed by this confidence, "Turn Your Life Around" tutors hurting (and often hardened) people in the soul physician's art that leads to healing, hope, and holiness.

Being biblically-based certainly does not mean being pie-in-the-sky as Clinton proves with his opening words, "Life can be pretty unmerciful" (p. xiii). Unmerciful life teamed with unrelenting Satan can result in the temptation to believe in an Unmerciful Savior. "Turn Your Life Around" uses a practical theology model to arrest this temptation and replace it with trust in a Trustworthy God.

Clinton journeys with his readers along the route marked Ambushed, Angry, Anxious, Alone, Alienated, Arrogant, Adulteries (of the Heart), and Addicted. Clinton skillfully diagnoses this fallen way of handling life when it mishandles us.

The path of healing, hope, and holiness, Clinton assures his readers, begins with the route marked Affection: the conviction that Jesus is the Lover of your soul. This leads to Assessment, Self-Awareness, Attachment, Action, Accountability, and becoming Alive Again (Christ's Resurrection Power)!

Even this creative outline does not begin to do justice to the creative, powerful writing style, coupled with theology-applied-to life that readers find on every page of "Turn Your Life Around." Not since "The Sacred Romance" (Curtis and Eldredge) has the Christian community witnessed a book that so aptly and accurately combines the narrative of life and the narrative of Scripture.

Intimacy with God and with others awaits the reader who engages this engaging work.

Reviewer: Robert W. Kellemen, Ph.D., is the author of "Beyond the Suffering: Embracing the Legacy of African American Soul Care and Spiritual Direction," "Soul Physicians," "Spiritual Friends," "Biblical Psychology," and "Martin Luther's Pastoral Counseling."
