Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)

Practicing the Present: The Neglected Art of Living in the Now

John Koessler

Moody Publishers, 2019, 213 pages

Summary

We live our lives in the present, but often our minds are racing toward the future or overwhelmed by the past. We want to change the past and control the future, but usually all we really do is exhaust ourselves in the here and now. In this book Dr. John Koessler, a former pastor and professor, teaches how to evade the tyranny of past regrets and future plans and meet God right where we are – here in the present.
