Since the time of the Apostles, many believers have sought for something more—something beyond what they concluded was the ordinary Christian experience. This search has led our forefathers into such things as asceticism, monasticism, pietism, and mysticism. More recent movements feeding this dissatisfaction include quietism, Keswick, and the second blessing teaching of Pentecostalism. This yearning is also fed by those who would have us believe that believers should live a more “abundant” life, a “deeper” life, or life on a “higher plane.”
Perhaps you have experienced the kind of yearning and dissatisfaction these teachings seek to satisfy. If you have found yourself wishing, hoping, and searching for something more—something deeper—in your Christian walk, this book was written for you. In his usual clear and compassionate style, Jay Adams explains how you can bring your quest for something more to a satisfying end.
