Is surviving in a violent world the only option? What about living? Every day, inner and outer violence ravages the soul, leaving us weak, fearful and malnourished. In Soul Custody, Steven W Smith presents eight choices to help readers reclaim custody of their one and only life - choices about silence, community, vocation, honoring the body, finding one's true self and more. As Smith reminds readers, alowing God to shape the soul leads to the deep, full and satisfying life that God had in mind all long. This is not a self-help book. It is not a book of easy steps to a happy life. It is an invitation to the life God dreams for each of His children. It is a call to start living - to let the soul wake up to life as God intended.
