SEEKING FIRST THE KINGDOM30 Meditations on How to Love God with All Your Heart, Mind, Soul, and Strength
This Study Circle Guide is only a pointer to a ready-to-go resource perfect for a practical, in-depth study about Christian formation: Seeking First the Kingdom: 30 Meditations on How to Love God with All Your Heart, Soul, Mind, and Strength. This book was designed from the beginning to be useful for individuals, small groups, and even classrooms. It provides sufficient structure for effective small-group meetings, but avoids an overabundance of stifling material.
It focuses on understanding the Great Commandment in terms of integral Christian formation: how to integrate into one’s friendship with Christ every dimension of the human person—desires, emotions, intellect, and will.
The book unfolds what is meant by each term in Christ’s Great Commandment. It does so in 30 short chapter, utilizing quotations from St. John Paul II, clear and practical explanations of traditional Catholic spirituality, and ample Scripture quotations.
