He starts the journey to wholeness by carefully plotting out five questions for us to consider on this quest. Where are you? Am I my brother's keeper? What are you seeking? Where are you going? What will you bring? Posed from the Bible itself, these questions will open your eyes to a new understanding of what it means to be whole, as well as why it's so important for us to find that place of wholeness.
After careful consideration of these questions being asked of us, we move on to ponder the scenarios laid out in the exodus, the wilderness, and the promised land. Steve guides us through the implications of each, as he reveals how these stories relate to our current lives and what we can do in order to get through the exodus to the wilderness and, in turn, lean on God while in the wilderness so that we may find the promised land.
With questions for reflection and discussion at the end of each chapter, this book is a wonderful tool for individual or group study. I would suggest Whole for anyone who feels the singe of brokenness within themselves or questions their place in this world and how they can help restore the brokenness of the world around them. 5/5 stars.
