Hope, Healing, and the Seven Longings of the Human Heart
by Dr. Greg K. Popcak, Ph.D.
"Popcak masterfully reveals how even our darkest desires ultimately point to something beautiful" –Christopher West, author, Fill These Hearts: God, Sex, & the Universal Longing
Dr. Greg Popcak, Ph.D., explores what our deepest desires—and even our darkest desires—tell us about our ultimate destiny and reveals a commonsense approach to fulfilling our true purpose in life.
"We are meant to be gods, but because of our fallen humanity, we are, for now, broken gods in need of deeper healing." ~from the book
"Broken Gods is life-changing." –Mike Aquilina, author of Roots of the Faith
"We were made for so much more. We were made to be gods‐‐perfect, immortal, utterly confident."
At Patheos Catholic, Dr. Gregory K. Popcak Ph.D., shares his views on psychology and religion at the intersection of faith and life.
Dr. Popcak invites us to imagine that we had really made it–that one day, we awoke to find that we had become perfect, immortal, utterly confident in who we were, where we were going in life, and how we were going to get there.
The notion of God wishing us all divinization becomes a thread woven into the idea that there are seven divine longings of the heart which are all distorted in seven specific ways and can only be fulfilled by one of seven heavenly virtues.
