"Here is a tender and helpful book with a pastoral voice. Summer teaches her readers the essential elements of attachment theory and then helps them partner with God for their healing. This book will bless all who read it."--Lore Ferguson Wilbert, author of The Understory (forthcoming), A Curious Faith, and Handle with Care

"As followers of Jesus, we know that He promises to be with us always. Yet, either out of personal hurts, distractions, or ignorance, we do not realize the power, balm, and consistency of God's presence with us. Summer Gross opens one's eyes with insight and practical help to know Emmanuel--God-with-us--in all aspects of one's life." --Foley Beach, archbishop and primate, Anglican Church in North America

"The Emmanuel Promise blends centuries of spiritual practices with the science of attachment. Everyone can improve their attachment and interactions with God, but can we maintain awareness when life is busy or bumpy? The Emmanuel Promise provides us with stories and simple practices for building secure relational spirituality. Your brain, heart, and friends will be glad you did." --Rev. Jim Wilder, PhD, chief neurotheologian of Life Model Works and coauthor of Escaping Enemy Mode
