About the Author
Shortly after 9/11 (2001), I began going through a series of watershed spiritual experiences that completely revolutionized my understanding of how we experience life. Among other things, I discovered the surprising secret to being completely at peace independent of circumstances. I believe we are designed to experience life exactly as Jesus would experience it if He were living our lives for us. I’ve made it my life’s work to communicate the paradigm shifts that empower you to experience this transformation.
Many people operate under the do - have - be paradigm. They think that human transformation is the result of rigorously following a set of personal growth or spiritual disciplines. In my experience, that usually doesn’t work. I’ve discovered a whole different way to approach this that cuts out the try-fail-try-fail cycle that can go with WWJD, and other disciplines. If you’re looking for an alternative to Try Hard Christianity, I have it.
I write books for a living—sometimes for my clients, sometimes for myself—but always for you. If you want an intimate look at what how this transformation has changed my life, I share that story with you in my book, The Gift of Transformation. If you want to see the Bible through the lens of Spiritual Self Defense, check out Rediscover God. If you want to look at your faith through new eyes, try What I Believe About You. Or if you just want to read something crazy, try The Man from Sun Prairie.
I live in the middle of America. That makes us neighbors. Stop by and see me any time at DwightClough.com.

Clough’s writing engaged me immediately -- right from the git-go. I was caught up by his conversational, highly readable “voice” and by his frequent use of vivid “word pictures” and examples. I love metaphors because they tend to stick in my mind better than any abstract sentence ever does. In my opinion, this book is written beautifully and uses examples really well.
Because of “Spiritual Self Defense,” I have uncovered a “bully” that has been literally LYING beneath the surface of my walk through life. This book has been like “joints of supply” for me -- truly a Godsend. I know a Divine Intervention when I experience one, and I recommend this book highly for anyone who trusts the Great Physician.
