"Honest and real-to-life, The Seeker’s Way helps you get on a path of discovery that will not take you home but will allow the path to become home. The Seeker’s Way gives you help with the answer found only in the journey. If you are looking for a lazy, simple, and utilitarian way to live, this book is not for you. If, on the other hand, you want to find a healthy, adventurous, and hopeful way to lead your life, this book is a great place to begin."
--Joseph R. Meyers, author, The Search to Belong: Rethinking Intimacy, Community, and Small Groups
