Return to the Promised Land

Grant Schnarr

Return to the Promised Land - Grant Schnarr

"Schnarr's understanding of the archetypal depths of the journey home to Canaan will inspire readers to revisit this Old Testament story." ---Library Journal Return to the Promised Land is a practical guide for spiritual growth that combines a twelve-step program with a fresh approach to the Exodus story. In this accessible, nonsectarian book, Schnarr compares the Israelites' struggles in the wilderness to present-day battles to overcome addictions or compulsive behaviours. In each chapter, Schnarr examines one biblical episode, exploring the plight or progress of the Israelites as he shows parallels to contemporary psychological and behavioural setbacks or successes. Among the issues he addresses are escaping the ego's tyranny, holding onto hope in stressful times, and accepting minor problems. Practical exercises at the end of each chapter help the reader apply Schnarr's insights to his or her spiritual recovery. "Carl Jung said that alcoholism, on a primitive level, was the equivalent of a spiritual thirst. Grant Schnarr details the means of slaking that thirst." ---George Nash, M.D., Cottonwood Centers Grant R. Schnarr, author of Spiritual Recovery and Way of Wisdom, has led seminars on the twelve-step program and spiritual-growth fellowships for over fourteen years. A Swedenborgian minister, Schnarr and his wife Cathy have four children.
