Divided: When the Head and Heart Don’t Agree

Format: Paperback

Availability: In stock


The longest distance in the universe is between the head and heart. For Christ-followers, it is the chasm between what we say we believe in our minds and what we truly believe in our hearts: a split between our statements about God and our experience of Him. This divide is everywhere around us, causing untold devastation. It is found in the double lives of believers and in the hypocrisy of church leaders, but mainly we see it in ourselves. It is the default position of every human heart.

In Divided: When the Head and Heart Don’t Agree, Bill Delvaux exposes this divide and offers strategies to tackle it. The actual journey to cross the divide is sketched out, an epic journey that will take us into our deepest fear and shame and on into the wonder of God’s presence. For becoming undivided is not just another task. It’s the pathway into the very heart of the Father.

Features include:

  • Strategies for closing the divide between head and heart
  • Specific prayers for each stage of the spiritual journey
  • Thought-provoking questions for spiritual conversation or reflection

Review by Brandi
Overall Rating
As followers of Christ, the struggle between what the heart says and the head says can be quite dividing. Every Christian, from the beginners to the more experienced, have had this conflict of interest at one time or another. In fact, this occurence happens time and time again.

In order to become closer to Christ and live our lives as sincere Christians, we must learn how to close this divide and conquer our fears and questions. Bill Delvaux truly helps with this struggle of head and heart conflicting. Along with guidance, he gives the reader questions that allow spiritual reflection as well as meaningful prayers.

Chapter after chapter I was nodding my head in agreement. It was relieving to know that I was not alone in my struggles. I thought my experiences were because I was still 'new' in my spiritual journey, but Bill, a seasoned Christian, was experiencing similar struggles.

The references and analogies Bill uses in Divided are relatable and lighten the seriousness of conflicts we routinely face as Christ-followers. He is a very down to earth guy with very down to earth experiences turned into guidance for us to follow.

I strongly recommend Divided: When the Head and Heart Don't Agree by Bill Delvaux to any Christian whether it be someone just starting on their spiritual path or the more seasoned individual. (Posted on 4/21/2015)
