Inner Messiah, Divine Character

Inner Messiah, Divine Character

Narrative Approaches to Be Beyond Best

by Benjamin Yosef
Publication Date: 29/07/2014
RRP  $51.70 $51.00
Inner Messiah, Divine Character encourages readers to deploy their imaginations in describing their lives as a confluence of narrative constructs to identify, analyze, and overcome obstacles and destructive patterns in both their personal and professional lives. The book promotes a three-point strategy to empower and to improve readers' attitudes about their personal and professional struggles. Drawing on the scholarship of Ancient Jewish mysticism and its influence on Freudian and Jungian analysis, Inner Messiah, Divine Character helps readers discover the ""Be"" within their ""Being"" to create new opportunities in the present, motivates readers to perceive ""Beyond"" their limitations and ordinary expectations, and encourages readers to strive for the superlative in their endeavors to achieve their ""Best."" ""Writing from north of Tel Aviv where bombs intended to destroy me explode over my head, I think about our fragile lives. I have learned life is a narrative and that no historiography is possible without imagination. Such reflections draw me to this book by Benjamin Yosef, a journalist and counselor in faraway Princeton. We need to move beyond the inherited 'malignant heart' of 4 Ezra and contemplate the imago dei found in Genesis. Yosef suggests avenues to activate our superlative self so we are pulled out of our daily destructive habits. Yosef's book is highly recommended for all who yearn to experience a divine power and character that is hidden within each of us so that we may dream beyond the ordinary."" --James H. Charlesworth, Director, Princeton Dead Sea Scrolls Project, Princeton, NJ ""Inner Messiah, Divine Character invites us to welcome and embrace the hopeful self which lives inside of us, the self that reminds us that we are created in the image of God. I especially appreciate the way in which the author makes the insights of the Jewish mystical tradition accessible and useful to his readers. Inner Messiah, Divine Character is proof that a profound book may also be altogether practical, alive with insights that show us how we may leave our doubts and despair behind and embark on a life infused with living hope."" --Donald Capps, Professor of Pastoral Theology emeritus, Princeton Theological Seminary, Princeton, NJ Benjamin Yosef is a Peabody-nominated radio journalist at WPRB in Princeton, NJ, and has over ten years of spiritual counseling experience, including chaplaincy and workshop leadership. He holds degrees from Johns Hopkins University (BA), University of Michigan Law School (JD), and Princeton Theological Seminary (MDiv).
