What Leaders Are Saying
RYAN KIBBE
Lead Pastor
Elevation Church
The Forgotten Way is as important to this generation as C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity was to his generation. 
A profound Scriptural work that won't be forgotten; a modern day Biblical masterpiece bathed in the presence of God with generational impact. It's an amazing and gripping read. 
CHE AHN
President and Founder
Harvest International
The Forgotten Way Meditations is an outstanding journey into the Father’s heart… Beautifully and powerfully expounds upon your identity in Christ. Destined to be a classic that will be read over and over again by those who possesses it. An amazing book that will change your life!
JASON HURD
Lead Pastor
The Wesleyan Church
The Forgotten Way is, to put it mildly, tremendous. Well-worded, thoughtful, insightful, easy to understand, to-the-point, profound, theologically sound, jam-packed to the gills with scriptural truth... This work will become far more significant to the Body of Christ than you realize.
Todd Plank - Cathedral of Praise, Austin
The Forgotten Way is wrecking my old paradigms of what it means to be a husband and father. This study is truly an incredible experience. 
Al Gernovich - Salt Church, PA
The Forgotten Way is concise, real, and a reminder of the truths that caused us to fall in love with the lover in the first place. What’s interesting to me is its approach to theology. It seems to have assimilated theology with real life circumstance, if not directly then indirectly. A reminder that His love wrote His theology and not the other way around. I love this book!
Pastor Dave Kaufman - The Tabernacle, SD
The Forgotten Way touches our souls. These penned words will resuscitate spirits. The hands and the hearts that receive The Forgotten Way will be liberated and relieved. His love jumps off the pages and is transmitted into a tangible reality. His Presence emits from these writings to remind us that we can love the unlovely, and the message makes us want to let go of judgment. In reading "The Forgotten Way", the words seem to release a rest, a frankincense of pure peace. 
Ryan Kibbe - Lead Pastor Elevation Church Wisconsin
The Forgotten Way is as important to this generation as C.S. Lewis' Mere Christianity was to unpacking apologetics in his generation. A profound Scriptural work that won't be forgotten; a modern day Biblical masterpiece bathed in the presence of God with generational impact. It's an amazing and gripping read.

Jason Hurd – Head Pastor Wesleyan Church
The Forgotten Way is simply, to put it mildly, tremendous. Well-worded, thoughtful, insightful, easy to understand, to-the-point, profound, theologically and Biblically sound, jam-packed to the gills with scriptural truths that most of us already “know” but, for whatever reason, have likely forgotten… This work will become far more significant to the Body of Christ than you realize.
Michael Gotcher - Life Austin, Austin TX 
The Forgotten Way Study is a game changer.

What Readers Are Saying
Amy Ray
I have most of what I have read so far highlighted, underlined and margins full of notes…The Forgotten Way is such a blessing to me…it is perfect timing and fits perfectly with all that God is trying to show me right now….to let go of all I think I know and find new perspective and ultimately freedom in Him
Rose Konkler
I am starting to read The Forgotten way the second time. I am challenged and excited about knowing intimately my Father as it was always meant to be. He has been pulling me into His arms for quite awhile and your book is another confirmation. So appreciate this book and His Words that I never really believed with my heart, but just with my head.
Angie Neufer
I have finished my first reading and am beginning again. I just want to read it over and over again until it fully sinks in. It is amazing how quickly and easily we do forget! 

The book has helped to bring such clarity to the scriptures for me! And I was constantly amazed, thinking "How did I miss that before? Why did I never see it that way when it seems so plain now?" 

I am SO thankful to be on this journey and only wish I had bought more books than I did! I want to share it with EVERYONE!!!
Jacqui Wilkins
I am doing this study with my adult children and sister - what can I say except that it is life changing! I have been a Christian since a child, and am now 53 --- for the first time in my Christian walk; I am learning to relax in my Father's love, and stop all the striving that has consumed my life for all these years. I especially enjoy the monologues! I just sit and feel healing flow through me as I listen to them. P.S. I have always been a Ted Dekker fan -- but this work that you have done now is just incredible. thank you!!
Chris Pearce
The ladies' Bible study group of my church is now reading The Forgotten Way. It's changing our lives and our thinking week by week. When we were reading the part about the yoke of Christ, one of our group said she always thought that meant you were dragged along on the Christian path... You should see her face lighting up and her mouth forming an O when this new way of seeing floods into her mind each week.
Deb Czarnopis
I am almost through my second reading. I wish I had had this material so much sooner in my life. I felt like I always had to prove that I was worthy of love and affection. I WAS mastered by the lie that this world can offer me significance. I can’t thank you enough for this magnificent book. I can only pray and hope that all hearts will be open to seeing with new eyes.
Susan Showen Grice
I am almost finished with my first time through this book. I am overwhelmed with not only how many lies I have believed about myself and my Father, but also how those lies have twisted my faith. I am also loving reading the verses in the back with opened eyes. How have we made the Word so complicated and made it say something it just doesn't say? My only sadness is that I did not buy 100 books instead of one.
Scarlett Whitley Ollila
I am so glad I got this book! The meditations use the scriptures to remind me that I don't have to live in fear, judgment, and offense. That I am the daughter sitting with her Father at dinner and not threatened by the outside even the politics of this world. Although I have to be reminded constantly to not feel threatened nor live threatened.
Diane Kramer
The book is amazing I have read it through probably three times now and our church house has decided to use it for our women's and men's meetings as soon as the books and study guides are available.
Nancy Cheoweth Ragan
This book just keeps helping me! Every day stuff comes at me, and I just pull up a page on my computer at work, and I remember how much He loves me, and it's all ok. I so love it!!
Wanda Edwards
Thank you so much for putting these thoughts together in such a powerful way, and showing me that I am not alone in being frustrated with the way we as the church have been representing our Savior. We need to reach our world with His message. And we must start with ourselves. Excited to be on this journey!
Mindy Killian
I've read through the meditations and am getting ready to read through them a second time. 

These meditations have been a source of life-giving water for my heart. Knowing that God doesn't judge me... priceless knowledge. It's working it's way into my heart. 

I'm looking to reading them a 2nd time. And 3rd. And 4th....
