"The Son of God became a son of man so that the sons of men might become sons of God" -St. Athanasius (c. 297-373) Most of us either cannot perceive or have forgotten that life is a journey to God, that this journey is the purpose of our lives, and that it will utterly transform us into children of God. Life More Abundant: Our Forgotten Journey to God will help the average Christian in the pew rediscover the Journey and our royal destiny as children of God. ?The Nature of Things? (part one) dives into our perception of reality, of God and the universe, so that we may perceive the Journey. It challenges how we look at ourselves and others, how we seek truth and solutions to problems. ?The Journey? (part two) focuses on this journey to God, the very purpose of our lives. These chapters use many approaches to both inspire and challenge us in our journey. The Journey is not simply one purpose among many; it is the sole purpose. ?Prayer? (part three) reveals that prayer is the very foundation of our life with God. It is through prayer that we come to know God intimately and become ever more fully His children. Our journey to God is the most difficult endeavor we have ever made, yet it is also the most rewarding. It fills our life with meaning, peace, joy, and love; we indeed receive life more abundant on our journey to God, our journey home. So all of us ambling about the trailhead need to fix our eyes on our goal and start climbing the Mountain of God!
