About the Book

Life is like a story, and for many of us this is a story about meaning: Why am I here? Where am I going? Who am I? Do I like myself? Why is life, or reality, here at all? These are important questions with a deep truth behind them. But where do we turn for answers?

In Food for the Journey, author Joseph B. Lynch shares his own story of “finding the way” that leads to the life Jesus promises to those who try to live the gospel in the twenty-first century. While churches seek to provide both nourishment for the journey and resources to enable the virtues in us, Food for the Journey is meant to involve you in reflecting on your own Christian journey.

We are meant to “find the way, and to have life and have it abundantly,” and Food for the Journey’s synthesis of personal experience, contemporary culture, and reflections on scripture and the classic Christian values will help you to set yourself on the righteous path and discover the guidance of the Holy Spirit in your own life. Then you too will be on the way to Christ.
