God has more for you than what you’re experiencing. God wants to change how you live—by changing who you are. And while that doesn’t mean he’s out to rewrite your identity, it does mean his plan is for you to be a “new creation.” SoulShift reveals how God can bring true transformation to your life.
Authors Steve DeNeff and David Drury offer a powerful and practical approach to spiritual formation—one that goes beyond investing in spiritual disciplines, focusing more on who we are actually becoming in Christ. In this book, you will learn seven key transformational shifts that God’s Spirit causes in the hearts, minds, and behaviors of Christians at any stage. SoulShift will move you from performance-driven religion to life-transforming relationship . . . for the rest of your life.

We celebrated with churches all over The Wesleyan Church as thousands of people accepted Jesus Christ on Resurrection Sunday. How do we help those new believers (and those who have been in your church but need a spiritual boost) to understand the transforming power of a life lived in the Spirit? With this book you can guide your church—and yourself—through this transformation.
—Jo Anne Lyon, General Superintendent, The Wesleyan Church
I went through SoulShift at College Church this past year. It was the closest thing to what we used to call a 'revival.' What used to happen in ten consecutive days, happened in eight consecutive weeks. It may be the new easy way to do an old thing—revive a church spiritually.
