Jeffrey Tacklind: The Winding Path of Transformation

Finding Yourself Between Glory and Humility

The Winding Path of Transformation: Finding Yourself Between Glory and Humility
(IVP, 2019)

WHO: Jeffrey Tacklind, lead pastor of Church by the Sea in Laguna Beach, California.

HE SAYS: “The texture of transformation is freedom.”

THE BIG IDEA: This book invites readers to examine their hearts, look at where they have been and where they are today, and be shaped in the process of transformation.

Part 1, “Glory and Humility,” examines how glory and humility are on two different trajectories that create a new path toward transformation. Part 2, “Necessary Seasons,” shows that the seasons of a life don’t pass in a straight line.
In Part 3, “The Slow Opening,” the author describes how God is growing and enlarging our hearts while healing them at the same time. The book concludes with Part 4, “The Way of the River.” In this section, readers discover that transformation isn’t measured in how they look or feel but in how they see.

“The winding path ensures that our eyes become trained to see and recognize the provision and goodness that otherwise go overlooked in our hurry to get from one place to the next. Because these glimpses of joy along the path sustain us. They renew us. And they remind us that there is more to come.”
