This book took me completely by surprise. I didn't really bank on to take a shine into it as much as I did. That’s because I don't often rifle through religious and/or spirituality genre, but the surmise excited me and from the moment I began reading, I didn't want to put it down.
Manuel Costa's A Path To Life's Fullness is a physically thin volume but full of revelation about the teachings of Jesus, some of which have been obliterated by the church for the longest time. Costa, who is an experienced psychotherapist, and also a former Catholic priest, applies Analytical psychology, or also known as Jungian psychology, which is a deep knowledge of scripture and emphasizes the significance of the individual true being and the personal search for wellness. He gives a rundown of life, of being in a quest of the truth about his Master, Jesus of Nazareth. This book guide uses both the author’s psychological and theological backgrounds to explore how Jesus' teachings can be used to heal and to restore the soul. Each chapter uses biblical references from both the Hebrew Scriptures and the Gospels, and renders impactful historical background to help elucidate those teachings.
