The Dynamic Heart in Daily LifeThank you for your interest in reviewing The Dynamic Heart in Daily Life: Connecting Christ to Human Experience by Jeremy Pierre. This blog tour is now full. You can see our current list of available review books here: LINK.

Our approach to counseling and personal ministry is often lopsided—we treat people as minds to be taught or problems to be fixed, moving too quickly toward applying biblical solutions without taking the time to love people well and understand their experiences and hurts.

The Dynamic Heart in Daily Life provides a comprehensive view of how the heart works and how Christ redeems it. Pierre’s faith-centered understanding of people combines with a Word-centered methodology to give readers a practical way to help others better understand their tough experiences and who they are in light of who Jesus is. Pierre guides readers through four key activities—reading, reflecting, relating, and renewing—that will consistently position them to understand everyday human experiences in light of Scripture.

Pierre exposes the false dichotomy between the spiritual and seemingly unspiritual parts of the human experience, showing how every thought, feeling, and choice actually expresses the spiritual activity of the heart. He shows how faith in Christ is the means by which the heart begins to respond differently. Faith is not only the entry point for heart change, but also an expression of our everyday, ongoing need for Christ.

Pierre’s holistic view of counseling—forged by his experiences as a counselor, pastor, and seminary professor—equips readers to understand how everyday beliefs, desires, and commitments shape how we respond to life’s biggest struggles and how an active relationship of trust in God is the foundation for lifelong change.

Praise for The Dynamic Heart in Daily Life:

“Scripture commands us to pay careful attention not only to our actions but also to our hearts. Yet, as many Christians know, the fight against indwelling sin can be one of the most challenging and exhausting aspects of the Christian life. In this book, Jeremy Pierre shows us how to deal with our hearts according to the truths of the Gospel. This book, firmly committed to the sufficiency and authority of Scripture, is a needed resource for the church.”
-R. Albert Mohler, Jr., President of The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

“In The Dynamic Heart in Daily Life, Jeremy Pierre wonderfully describes how a heart with dynamic faith will so value things that God finds valuable that God becomes the ‘control desire’ in human experience, emotion, and choice. This insight provides not simply an understanding of human motivation but a profoundly helpful tool for transformative Christian counseling.”
-Bryan Chapell, Pastor, Grace Presbyterian Church; author, Holiness by Grace and Christ-Centered Preaching

“I am delighted to see this book in print. Jeremy Pierre has ministered to me as a friend and colleague much more than he realizes. Now, through this book, many others can see why he is so appreciated by his students, seminary associates, and fellow church members. In these pages pastors, counselors, caretakers, and just about anyone who works with people will find help to better understand the heart and experience of the person in front of them, and thereby be more fully equipped to minister Christ to that person.”
-Donald S. Whitney, Professor of Biblical Spirituality, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary; author of Spiritual Disciplines for the Christian Life and Praying the Bible
