Head and Heart


When the Head and Heart Don't Agree

By Bill Delvaux

The longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart, this is one of things we are told when we become believers in Christ. The 18-inch space that separates; what we think and what we truly hold dear. Most of the time, this is a separation that will get us into trouble. Bill Delvaux share example from his own life and from others, how the disagreement between the head and heart can affect us in our lives. The scripture stories he shared show how this affected people of the Bible and how we are to handle our disagreements of the head and heart.

Divided into three parts:

1. Viewing the divide: How it began and what it destroys.
2. Tackling the divide: Three terrains to navigate
3. Closing the divide: What the journey feels like.

At the end of each chapter, he offers a prayer, an inspirational comment and questions for discussion. I found his writing easy to understand and that at times, he was talking straight to me only. He talks about the fears and shame that we have felt and how we can handle them. We all have gone through some of the examples he shares and I am sure we will be able to handle things differently after reading this book.

A quote from the book:

"Becoming undivided is not just another task: it is the pathway into the very heart of the Father."
