Have you ever wanted to become a deep person in Christ?  This book is going to show you how, so be prepared to enjoy this book and don’t forget to take notes.

Gordon MacDonald uses the fictional setting from his book, Who Stole My Church?  As the priest he realizes his church is missing something.  Deep people.

Along with his wife, Gordon chooses a small group of people to meet once a week to cultivate into deep people.  The group, along with Gordon and his wife learn what spiritually deep people are like.  And excitement spreads to the rest of the church.

Author- Dr. Gordon MacDonald has written a number of books and has been a pastor over fifty years.  He lives with his wife, Gail, in New Hampshire.

My Thoughts- I haven’t read any of his books, but I was intrigued when I read the synopsis.  I want to be a deep person for God and I thought this book would help me do that.

One of the best parts of this book was that is was written as a novel, which made it much easier to read.  I thought it could be dry if it had been written as nonfiction.

Even though it may be written as a novel, there were many nuggets of information in each chapter.  It took many notes about how Gordon should be a rabbi like Jesus, the group learned about their temperaments, how to pray, and many other things.

I would like to see a workbook to go with this book.  It would help many readers become deep people if there was a guide they could use on a daily basis.

I highly recommend.
