“What this book offers is a guide for getting you started on your way to following Jesus. It will demystify some of what you might encounter as you take your first tentative steps into Christianity and provide some basis for the decisions you will need to make. It also shows you six core practices practices, rooted in Jesus’ own example, that will provide a solid foundation for your faith. Taking up these practices will bring you closer to God and closer to living into the kind of life God hopes for us; a life of love and grace and the thriving of the human soul.“
