Leader’s Edge (Spiritual Formation)
You Are What You Love: The Spiritual Power of Habit
James K.A. Smith. Publisher: Brazos Press, Grand Rapids, 2016.
Author James Smith believes that who and what we worship fundamentally shape our hearts. He states that we may not realize the ways our hearts are taught to love rival gods instead of the One for whom we were made. And while we desire to shape culture, we are not often aware of how culture shapes us. Smith helps us recognize the formative power of culture and the transformative possibilities of solid Christian practices.
