The journey continues, but the destination remains predictably uncertain for Richard Elliott, a consummate seeker who never hesitates to explore new faith dimensions. Rarely content with the spiritual status quo, but regularly focused on digging deeper, he enjoys inviting others to venture into previously uncharted territory. Delightfully honest, downright frank and always well-intentioned are but a few ways I would describe my friend and brother in Christ. A man of deep convictions and a mature but ever inquiring faith, he never tires in his efforts to grow spiritually, be present to those in need and make a meaningful difference in the lives of others, whether that be family, friends or a stranger on the street. Gifted with a knack for accepting perspectives that may differ from his, he consistently displays a refreshing openness that often brings reconciliation, healing and peace. A seed sower whose goal is always to produce a meaningful harvest, it's fascinating to watch this perpetual planter at work. May those who read Richard’s most recent work, which is rooted firmly in the fertile soil of new perspectives, discover a rich assortment of gems worth pondering and helpful insights deserving additional contemplation. My guess is this will not be his last book. I continue to treasure the rather unique relationship I am privileged to share with a special saint, Richard Elliott. Eric Wogan, retired ELC Pastor.
I have worshipped, served in Christian outreach, and been friends in life and Christ with Richard since he, his wife Carol and others help bring me back to active faith formation a decade ago. Richard is an authentic disciple and the ultimate seeker. The sincerity and passion of his commitment to keeping God, Christ and the Spirit at the center of his life, and his willingness to help others like me do the same, are human values that are far too rare in this age in which we live.

Throughout history, man has tried to understand how to get close to God. In most cases, he has followed a one-sided dogmatic theory from religious organizations. Richard Elliott gives us the information to find out for ourselves. He shows us the path to discovery Gods on the personal level. I firmly believe this is a groundbreaking book.
