Four Quarters Virtual Book Launch Event - https://youtu.be/YjNdGWlg0-Q 


“STORY is powerful and images build bridges and seeing one’s journey through the basketball image of four quarters provides an appropriate way of dealing with discoveries, shifts, excitements, exhaustions, epiphanies, etc., that come with maturing in faith. Dr. Tinsley, having played college ball, understands the parallels between walking by faith with God and enduring four quarters on the court better than most. Both her theological and therapy background provide a fascinating bridge between two disciplines often at odds. However, if one can “play” all four quarters, it becomes evident how connected the two are. Regardless of what quarter you’re in, get in the game and walk by faith on this exciting journey called “Life with God.”” Dr. William H. Curtis, Pastor, Mount Ararat Baptist Church, Pittsburgh, PA



The Latest Book from Dr. Taunya Marie Tinsley


Four Quarters: A Cultural and Developmental Approach to Transforming Your Spiritual Autobiography

Four Quarters implements sports metaphors, specifically basketball, that will assist readers with developing their spiritual story/autobiography. Scriptures and psychological concepts are included to help you make sense and understand your spiritual story. Author Taunya Marie Tinsley's experience of developing her own spiritual autobiography assisted her with understanding who she is; making sense of her journey; and finishing unfinished business from her past while improving her understanding of God and her faith in the process. She hopes  readers can model her vulnerability and experiences to assist them with their own personal process.

This book is designed for anyone who is in service to others and is seeking understanding of their spiritual story rot dynamically transform past experiences into new beginnings. This book can be used in a variety of settings including small groups, churches and spiritual leadership teams, seminaries, and academic programs seeking to assist their leaders, congregants, or students with identifying their spiritual story from a cultural and developmental approach. If helping professionals and those in service in the community or church are to promote growth and change in those they help, they must be willing to promote growth in their own lives.
