In an overwhelming world, how can our lives be shaped to their greatest potential? David F. Ford describes the 'overwhelmings' we face in the whirl of life today - the endless images and information that inundate us and pervade our lives. Examining the people and forces that influence us, the rhythm of work and leisure, and the intense experiences, both good and bad, that make up reality, Ford serves up practical wisdom for coping creatively with challenge and change. Above all, Ford helps us to discover a dynamic pattern that can respond to the 'overwhelmings' and shape our desires, relationships, responsibilities and celebrations. Here is a vision of genuine Christian life that can face both the living God and the best and worst of today's world.
'The Shape of Living is an essential companion for us as we struggle to be most fully ourselves in God's chaotic but enthralling world.' -- Susan Howatch
