Jesus, The SheepKeeper, wants more for your life than you can possibly imagine. He created you for a divine purpose-to reflect His glory. He waits at the door to a life of abundance. But going through the door isn't always easy.
This book is written for people who appear to have many friends but are increasingly aware that are "loners." It is for people who are weary of superficial, conditional relationships, and who long for authentic friendships. It is for people who need a roadmap for developing the deepest possible friendships - covenant friendships. Don't let the word "covenant" frighten you. A covenant is a vital relational concept. It more than a legal contract, which form the basis for lawsuits when the terms of the contract are violated. A covenant is a bonding between two persons or parties. It is two people becoming one. Covenant brings marriage to mind for most of us. Marriage involves making covenant commitments which are enduring. But have you ever realized that real friendship requires similar covenant commitment? As a matter of fact, friendship is the training ground for marriage. It is unwise for a person to attempt covenant marriage until they have learned the practice of covenant friendship.
Many years ago, the moral failure of a popular political figure was exposed. Commentators and pundits observed that he lacked a "core." They meant that this politician's actions were impulsive and ungoverned, rather than rising out of consistent set of core values. For months after hearing this comment I asked myself, "Jim do you have a set of core values out of which you live consistently and without compromise? If so, what are they?" I have spent the intervening years making notes for an open letter to my grandchildren. I wanted them to have the fruit of my introspection.
This book begins with a near-death experience, and enlarges its scope to examine both the teachings of the living religions and the entire New Testament. The result is a fresh, break-through understandings of the hereafter.
