Every day we are greeted by people asking how we are doing. It is so common that we give a standard response and then we keep moving. We refuse to answer the question truthfully. Judah Smith is not satisfied with us simply answering that question. He wants to know how is your soul. It is a fitting title for the book that outlines ideas to help us answer that very question. He believes that it is a question that we must consider whether we claim the title of Christ follower or not.
It is true that a Christ follower will get more out of this book, but in the end the true state of our soul will echo throughout our life in the here and now and in the hereafter. How’s Your Soul? has ten chapters that are fundamentally connected and help guide a journey that will allow you to evaluate your soul.
One of the early statements from Judah (Can I call him by his first name? After reading all of his books I feel like we know each other.) is that our health and wellness do not move from the outside in, but rather in the opposite direction. If we are satisfied and well-trained internally, it will flow into our outward expressions and we will be seen as healthy. If you concentrate on the outside without tending to the internal struggles, you will wind up with a nice paint job, but no foundation to support the outward experience. Sadly, this is where most people focus their lives. That could be why so many people seem to have it together, but one crack in the framework that supports their life and they crumble.
Regardless of if you believe your soul is well or not, you should read this book. You will gain a greater understanding of your own path and the areas that you need to adjust in order to get healthy. I have always enjoyed Judah’s books and have found them applicable to my life and his newest is no exception.
Get this book. Read this book. Live this book. The world will thank you.
