Overview

Deep-Rooted in Christ: The Way of Transformation by Joshua Choonmin Kang, Richard

Come. Accept pastor Joshua Choonmin Kang's invitation to walk slowly, paying attention to God's work in you and around you, to walk intentionally, using spiritual disciplines to develop Christlike character, and to walk purposefully, experiencing deeper grace and vision.

In this book you'll encounter fifty-two brief readings, ideal for weekly sabbath reflection or daily devotional use. They point to the path of peace in the midst of life's turmoil, to hope in the midst of brokenness, where you'll become "like a tree planted by streams of water, which yields its fruit in season and whose leaf does not wither" (Ps 1:3). It's the path to becoming deep-rooted in Christ.

I'm not much of a theologian but Pastor Kang is able to communicate the depth of Christ's love into simple everyday words. He has a gift of making the complicated, discernible and inspires me to be loved by my Creator and Friend.
