I started it when it irst came out and I was wondering if it was worth finishing. I remember that I liked it then but I'm in a completely different place in life than I was 6 or 7 yrs ago!

Megan, I have never done this, and it sounds interesting. Can you elaborate a bit more about it?

Thanks!

Basically it is a study about how to make your faith real in your everyday life. How to find God in everything that is around you.

The inside of the flap says basically it teaches 7 ways to experience God in a personal relationship kind of way. Not just knowing but "knowing". The front of the book says "How to live the full adventure of knowing and doing the will of God"

Does that help? I did it so long ago I can't give much of a personal aspect to the book.

We studied it in an adult class at church (Lutheran) last spring. I think you would get a lot more out of it in a group setting. There was a lot of interesting discussion each week and our group became close as a result. I really looked forward to it each week while I was doing it. It is a committment, there is reading every night and you should go every week if you are studying as a group.

I haven't done it but I have only heard good things about it. I think I will be taking it the next time my group bible study offers it.

The truest answer to violence is love. The truest answer to death is life. The only prevention for violence is for the heart to have no violence within it.  We cannot prevent evil through any system devised by mankind. But we can grapple with evil and defeat it, but only with love—real love.

Thanks for the explanation. It does sound interesting and very like a book I read last year -- How to Know God by Deepak Chopra. That book discusses our varying levels of understanding/communion and differing relationships with God based on our view of a relationship with God.

Very nice!

Elaborate.

It sounds familiar but it sounds like something from the old crappy church that kicked out my entire family.
