Read this book - for it can change your life.
This book can help you discover the life you have always wanted.
It can do that, if you use this book in the right way which I (happily) will just happen to describe in some detail.
First I'll tell you what the book is and what it contains.
Then I'll give you my recommendation on how to use this book.
This is a big book. It can be a bit daunting looking at its size and thumbing through its pages.
This book is a labor of love from Ken Boa.
(Ken - a personal thank-you. I am sure you will write many more books and add them to your list of publications, but this one may be your Magna Opus. If you surpass it with a later book... !).
Boa has sweepingly studied and understood the wide gamut of Christian spirituality in all its many traditions and expressions. And he has nicely summarized his findings in a well organized, biblically rich, pastorally sensitive, spiritually wise offering.
Make no mistake, this book is solid theology and savory spirituality. Boa invites you to think wisely and experience widely of God's manifold richness. It is always grounded in the Scriptures and yet always oriented toward the practical expression of truth.
This book is substantially informed with nuggets of gold from the great spiritual writers and devotional classics, both ancient and contemporary. it is warmly Evangelical and widely Ecumenical in its scope.Read more ›
Kenneth Boa's prayer in is that a result of reading this book you will:
- develop a greater appreciation for the unique way God has made you;
- become aware of a wider array of options for your spiritual journey;
- get out of a possible spiritual rut;
- desire to experiment with other facets of the faith
- appreciate the manifold legacy that has been bequeathed to us by those who have gone before us;
- expand your horizons and be encouraged to move out of your comfort zone
- have instilled in you a greater passion for Christ and a greater desire to participate in his loving purposes for your life.
Does Boa succeed in the above? A resounding "yes." I have used this book one on one; in small groups of 7-14 people; and larger groups of 20-40 people. In every case the book has proven to be effective in helping all involved to grow in Christ like qualities, and behavior.Read more ›
