Longing for God Seven Paths of Christian DevotionChristianity Today Book Award winner God Seven Kindle #207Golden Canon Leadership Book Award winner Think of the moment you last experienced God Do you know him that closely in this moment Truly experiencing the Longing for PDFEPUB or love of God gives us a taste of his goodness and his love for us but often those moments are fleeting We get distracted by life Our awareness and understanding fade while our longing for God Seven. Beebe and Foster write an interesting book about the history of Christian paths of devotion to God They come up with seven based on the lives and intimate experiences with God of over two dozen peopleOne The Right Ordering of Our Love for GodTwo The Spiritual Life as JourneyThree The Recovery of Knowledge of God Lost in the FallFour Intimacy with Jesus ChristFive The Right Ordering of Our Experiences of GodSix Action and ContemplationSeven Diving AscentThe appendices briefly mention another six dozen or so peopleHere's what they conclude These 'paths' of course are not exclusive of one another No one path is right and the others wrong Indeed they overlap and intertwine and mingle with each other Likely we will find ourselves on one path or another at different seasons of our lifeAnd Only one thing is essential for us to move forward in this life with GodI found the descriptions of the life and work of these nine dozen people to be very interesting some I had heard of others I had not I have been ignorant of most of the essence of what these people emphasized What I find amazing is the way that Beede can summarize the belief systems of so many folks WITHOUT CONDEMNING OR DE VALUING He seems to give his most accurate assessment of their lives and beliefs about God Foster does come closer to putting value judgments on some of these folks but again from a layperson's growing perspective I found some of these folks how do you say wacky hard to swallowBeedee and Foster seem to be able to have a high tolerance for acceptance and the ability to 'take the meat and leave the bones' It actually stretched me in that way to have a greater patience to come to understand differing spiritual experiences and theological understandingsI'd read this book again in a few years maybe
