Brianna Wiest is lesser known self-help guru (author of The Mountain is You and 101 Ways to Change Your Thinking) but her voice is one to be reckoned with. Her unique, breezy, even comforting blend of psychological tips and spiritual advice is both nuanced and potent. Following her path will lead you to the front of the Temple, your face turned up to heaven, explaining how good you are. For, indeed, Wiest is more right than she knows—you are a mountain. But if God is merciful, not one to be summited, conquered by your own efforts, but rather laid low, cast to the earth while there is still time to get mercy from the very God who made you and knows you best. You can do all Wiest says and you will never ascend to the height of the most crucial mountain—the one where God dwells. “Who,” cries the psalmist, “shall ascend the hill of the LORD? And who shall stand in his holy place?” (Psalm 24:3).
