The Path of Compassion: Living with Heart, Soul, and Mind

Ron Greer, Director of PRUMC’s Pastoral Counseling Service, is highly regarded professionally and personally and is a trusted friend to many at Peachtree Road. He has shared the wisdom of his life experiences in earlier books on grief, integrity and parenting, and now considers the complexities of compassion in his newest publication.
Ron Greer’s new book, The Path of Compassion, explores the awareness of God’s grace within us and our need to share that grace. How can we best channel our empathy to help others while deepening our human response to care? The answer is a synergy of heart, soul and mind that creates compassion.
There is a growing need for healing in our divisive world and The Path of Compassion is both a call and a guide to make a difference through caring — and in doing so, become all that we are meant to be. When we are able to live and love with compassion, we “reclaim the image of God” within us.
One cannot read a page of The Path of Compassion without at least one ‘Aha’ moment, a profound lesson in etymology, or outright tears of empathy. The volume is beautifully written. As great as Ron’s past works have been, this is his best yet!
Weaving stories, scripture, and substantial theological depth throughout The Path of Compassion, Ron Greer offers nourishment and wisdom to deepen our faith and strengthen our witness to Christ’s presence among us.
