Book Review: On a Quest for Christ by Lisa Are Wulf
As usual, the subtitle is very telling—“tracing the footsteps of your spiritual journey”. That’s what this book is really about. It’s about looking back from the very beginning to when you first heard Him calling you, through your actual conversion and into your Christian walk.
It’s set up as a 30 day devotional and included are glimpses of the author’s life (which I appreciated the authenticity of), questions to ask yourself (don’t skip over these), a scripture to meditate on and a sample prayer. I most liked the passages to meditate on and the sample prayers.
Since I’ve been a Christian for decades and can barely remember what it was like to not be one, I did not relate to almost the first half of the book, which were about getting to salvation.
It was well worth the “wait” to get to the second half of the book. I related to that part very well.
Throughout the book it will get you to see that you are not alone. Not only does God not leave us and you will “see” that He was “there” more than you thought He was if you answer all the questions, but with the personal stories from the author she makes you feel that you are not the only one to go through whatever thing “it” is.
One particular group or kind of Christian does not stand out to me as to who would most benefit from this book except possibly someone who, like the author, came to Christ later in life. It seems to me that most Christians would find some benefit from this book, but the caution is that you must actually do the work, that is, answer the questions, and do the meditations and prayers.
