    " finally we don't need to fit our faith into a mold. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Darren Hamilton | 2/6/2014

    " Helpful book in gaining a better understanding of how we are wired, and how that relates to relationship to God. Not what I would call an academic piece of writing, and at times I was questioning some of the examples/reasoning. However, I feel it's helpful to read. It helped to confirm my own pathways. "

  • 3 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 53 out of 5 Ebookwormy | 2/5/2014

    " I want to like this book. The premise is engaging. I've discussed this basic idea (that people have preferences for how they interact with God, ways of communicating with and experiencing Him that are unique to their personality and/or experience). I love Gary Thomas' writing, and have benefited greatly from his work. I appreciate how he ties in Christian history. But this title just doesn't click with me. Had trouble finishing it. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Ginger | 2/3/2014

    " This book has been instrumental in my spiritual walk. What "The Five Love Languages" will do for your relationships, this book will do for your time with God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Carolynn | 1/28/2014

    " I read this book for a Bible study, and it was fabulous! Through this book and a few other activities, we explored our spiritual temperaments (the ways we best/most easily connect to God). At the end of each chapter was a short quiz about each temperament, and at the end of the book, you look more in depth at your top temperaments. Thomas gives concrete examples of how you can put your spiritual temperaments into practice and also encourages you to explore the other temperaments to a) incorporate into your own spiritual life and b) better understand you Christian friends and family. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jeanette | 1/16/2014

    " I think he does a good job of identifying 9 different paths by which to connect or relate to God. Sometimes he it seems he is describing the path, so one can find out if it is the path they relate by, but other times it appears more like a how-to develop the path. Overall I found it helpful and realized I follow more paths than I thought. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Shiffra | 1/16/2014

    " This book helps explore a bunch of different ways to worship the Lord to find the way(s) that the Lord has created you to worship Him. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Jody | 12/5/2013

    " Great overview of how we each have a "spiritual personality" and why this effects our relationship with God and those in the church. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laura | 11/12/2013

    " This book is much like the Five Love Languages. It makes sense out of so much unnecessary relational tension among Christians, and has helped me be more open to connecting to God in more ways. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Laurie | 10/28/2013

    " I can't claim to have read this one cover to cover, but I did read the parts that I felt were relevant to me and found it very helpful and reassuring. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Samuel | 10/23/2013

    " Understanding the uniqueness in which God has made us. Each of us exhibits a few kinds of traits and these define us and enable us to feel closest to God under such settings. A good read if you want to discover more in finding rest for your inner garden "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kendra Fletcher | 4/16/2013

    " I'm a big fan of Gary Thomas, and I felt that Sacred Pathways was an important, if not oft overlooked, work. Really, if you're in pastoral care as an occupation, Sacred Pathways is a book that might help you care for your flock that much better. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Brian | 3/26/2013

    " Fantastic book, I'd recommend this to all Christians, not only to identify how you best connect with God, but also to explore new ways to do so as well. I'll be reading through different sections every so often. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Becky | 10/23/2012

    " The things that make you feel closest to God may be different from your Christian brothers and sisters. Explore the various pathways, and learn to appreciate others'. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Thomas Kinsfather | 5/10/2012

    " Insight into how each of us in wired up differently in how we relate to God. I learned much about myself and was able to reorganize my devotional time based on gleanings from this book. Bill Hybles says every pastor ought to clear a spot on their bookshelf for this book. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Noelle | 4/13/2012

    " Interesting book. Some of ladies from church are using it for a book discussion club. I would recommend this book to any worship leader. It is helpful in understanding and appreciating the different ways we approach worship. "

  • 4 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 54 out of 5 Chris | 2/13/2012

    " Given to me by Haley. It is was required reading for one of her classes. "

    " This is such an interesting book. It outlines nine different "spiritual temperaments" and teaches how your distinct temperament affects your relationship with God. "

  • 5 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 55 out of 5 Kristin Lee Williams | 6/3/2011

    " As always, I was moved and challenged by Gary Thomas's writing. Thinking of working this material into some kind of study for my small group this fall. "

    " Library _ILLO_

    Good book, with a neat premise (we each have a "pathway" that leads us to a deeper Spiritual life). I liked it, but found it not as good as his newer offering, "The Beautiful Fight". "
