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 learningan openness that extends even to unlearning what we have previously learned to take for granted. Other chapters explore such subjects as discerning Gods 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 todays world.
