The Path: A Guidebook for This Age of Upheavalby Tom Payne
Because the Path is so contrary to our nature it is easy to get
Even the most spiritually mature among us can lose their way. It happened to C.S. Lewis, D. L. Moody and the Prophet Elijah, even after they were far advanced along the Path. This is because God's Way is so much higher than ours. It is an utterly alien and unique Path that only He could have designed.
Because the Path is so contrary to our nature it is easy to get lost even while our feet are firmly planted on it. This is even more likely during an age of convulsive and disorienting change like the one we are living in. During an Age of Upheaval it helps to have a spiritual guidebook that describes the terrain we must traverse and the signposts that indicate changes in our direction. For when the Path guides us into the wilderness, as it must, the understanding that this stage will end in blessing can provide the struggling Christian with a sustaining hope.
The seven festivals found in the Torah are divinely designed markers to help orient us on the Way. Our journey begins with Passover and being marked with the blood of the Lamb, and it proceeds from there through the remaining festivals.
Helping guide us along the way are the lives of some very prominent Christians. Besides C. S. Lewis and D. L. Moody, there are illustrations from the lives of C. H. Spurgeon, Bill Bright, Chuck Colson and others. Their lives will help us understand the nature of this Path that is unlike any other. So will the fascinating lives of less well-known Christians like Joon Gon Kim, Peter Waldo, Bob Pierce and Jeremiah Lanphier.
Finally, it examines the world's religions against this standard: are they designed to treat what spiritually ails us? The evidence is clear: there is only one path that does, and it is a path like no other.
