Publisher's Description

On Our Way looks at common subjects in fresh, meaningful ways. It presents “study,” for example, as “not synonymous with reading books or with academic reflection, though it may well include these.” Instead, this essay explains study as “a particular kind of attending to Christ and the world, a particular stance of curiosity, vigilance, and openness to learning—an openness that extends even to unlearning what we have previously learned to take for granted.” Other chapters explore such subjects as discerning God’s call, friendship and intimacy, care for creation, knowing and loving our neighbors of other faiths, and doing justice.
As young adults move away from the confines of home, school, and church youth group, this book will serve as an excellent resource. While it speaks from a Christian perspective, its broad approach makes it appealing both to Christians and to those who consider themselves “spiritual but not religious.” Well-suited for individual reading or group discussion, On Our Way is an excellent companion for young adults seeking their place in today’s world.

    It took me a while to get through the foreward. But many of the chapters were worth the effort. The book is full of challenges and insights into living our day to day lives. If you don't like a chapter, skip to the next. It examines some spiritual practices that you might not at first think about. The book is written by people from varying traditions and perspectives. My first introduction to this book was reading the "study" chapter by Matthew Myer Boulton which is a fun, quick read. I love how he characterizes the Bible as repeatedly resisting oversimplification and how he discusses the radical nature of Jesus. The chapter on community was a little harder for me to read, but there are some great ideas in there about ways to live in community, like a community garden. The book repeatedly states that it was meant for twenty-somethings. But I'm thinking it would be appropriate for a wider range of people getting established in their lives from 20s to early 30s. At least two of the writers are reference young adulthood with kids. Take a look and see for yourself.
