Heart and Mind

Heart and Mind: The Four-Gospel Journey for Radical Transformation: Revised Second Edition (2019)

“This is a stunning book, by one of my favorite teachers - Alexander John Shaia.”Rob Bell, NYT bestselling author
“Dr. Shaia gives us back our central sacred text - the four gospels - not as conflicted and faulty historical records, but as a vibrant, luminous path of transformation.”Marc Andrus
Episcopal Bishop, Diocese of California
