Book Review: On a Quest for Christ by Lisa Are Wulf


"Your spiritual story is significant.  Who you are makes a difference.  God ordained a path for you even before the dawn of creation.  The impact of your life is incalculable." - Lisa Are Wulf

Because I have been involved in church my entire life, and have known God my entire life, I didn't really think I'd get a ton out of this book.  The cover of this book says, "tracing the footsteps of your spiritual journey."  I was thinking, I know the steps.  I was born into a Christian home, I asked Jesus into my heart when I was 8 years old (because of my 3rd grade teacher, Miss Jonker), I've gone to church and read the Bible my whole life...what's there to trace?

Well.  I was pleasantly surprised by this book.  It's basically a 30-day devotional, and each chapter is quite short, really.  There is the same basic format to each chapter;  there is a Bible passage, some words from the author, then she tells bits of her personal story in each one. 

There is also a place, prompted by her questions, for you to tell your story, bit by bit.  What I found so amazing is that Ms. Wulf has a knack of cutting right to your heart in very few words.  When I was initially scanning the book, I thought, "Wow, these sure are short chapters.  Not many questions.  Probably pretty surface stuff."

I'm happy to report I was wrong on all counts.  I have been a Christian for as long as I can remember, but On a Quest for Christ had me yearning to go deeper...I found myself thinking of things I had forgotten, memories of my journey with Christ that had been crowded out of my mind by the busyness of every day life.

I would highly recommend this book to anyone interested in putting their spiritual story together in one place, no matter where you are on your journey right now.  I have grown because of this book, and because I am not quite finished, I eagerly anticipate doing more.
