We claim to be saved in the next life, but can we find peace in the storms that rise up against us in this life? The answer is an unequivocal yes. But that yes means looking at ourselves and the world differently, which leads to a new way of being. The Forgotten Way Meditations is a journey of re-discovering the radical love, peace, and identity found in Yeshua so you can see and be differently. Forgotten, because Yeshua's simple path of awakening to love, peace and power in this life is rarely remembered or understood by millions of Christians weighed down with life's cares and concerns.
Way because it is a pathway we walk, not a checklist of rules to follow. I purchased The Forgotten Way, along with the study guide, from the Forgotten Way website which is currently the only way to purchase a legitimate copy. The purchase gave me download-access to the entire book in audio form, read by Kevin Kaiser and to discussions with Ted Dekker on each daily meditation. Often, I would read the meditation as I listened along with the audio meditation. I also listen to the meditations as I drive to work. I immediately started over on my own by listening to the meditations on my commute.
I joined the next online group and the next. These 21 meditations rocked my heart and changed my spiritual perception. Part autobiography, part soul journey from Ted Dekker. At the back of the book, are all the scriptures, by meditation, with reflections written by Bill Vanderbush. Go to The Forgotten Way website and order the books. The 21 meditations are totally based on scripture. Everything in the meditations is based on scripture. No dogma.
No denominations. Just God. And you. May 14, Marsha Johnson Davis rated it it was amazing. The format of this book might sound a little odd to some readers; it did to me at first. It is written as 21 meditations, but just consider it 21 chapters. No chapter is long in print, but endless in meaning. In our busy lives filled with responsibilities, bombarded with noise, highly impacted by social medias and win-the-race attitudes, it's easy to get lost along the way.
This book brings you back to where you are meant to be and back to who you're be. As I read each chapter, I feel like an on The format of this book might sound a little odd to some readers; it did to me at first. As I read each chapter, I feel like an onion. Layer by layer was peeled away until the core of me was revealed. Some layers were thicker than others, more difficult to remove and brought tears to the eyes. Other layers were just plain freeing and all layers were revealing.

I relearned who I am; I am a daughter of God, a princess, a sister of Jesus. I am loved by my Creator and that love holds no record of wrongs. I highly recommend this book to everyone. It may be read alone or is a great book to go through with a group. I was afraid to read this at first because I was emerging from a season that had been really difficult, in part due to a book that had influenced my thinking and personal theology in negative, destructive ways.
But when I reached a point where I felt safe and firmly planted enough to read a bit of non-fiction again, I was very grateful for what I found in this book. It's split into three parts, and the first two parts are remarkably gospel-centered and share things in a way that is unique and cl I was afraid to read this at first because I was emerging from a season that had been really difficult, in part due to a book that had influenced my thinking and personal theology in negative, destructive ways.

Ted Dekker’s The Forgotten Way: Book Review and a Discernment Lesson
I will admit, the third part did not have those same qualities to me and brought me back to a bit of a cautious place. But it is definitely still a worthwhile read. Jul 27, Rosevine Cottage Girls rated it really liked it. This book is different than most of his books. Normally you expect Christian Fiction from him but this book is different. At first I was concerned about the book, but I was surprised how well the book was.
I have read several devotional books and I would say this book is as good as any of them. I like the way he has written this book and discusses the subjects and brakes it down for our reading. I would recomme This book is different than most of his books.

I would recommend adding this book to your list of devotionals for reading. Received this book from the publisher for our honest review. I want to read this again.
Dekker hits a number of points that could be delved into more deeply. However, I suspect part of the strategy is to get the reader to think deeper for oneself. Whichever the case, I was challenged to think and see myself in a different light. Dekker definitely challenged me to live as though what I say I believe about God is true. That was very cool. I find myself thinking that some of that might just be me on that day, but sometimes it seems like some points are repeated in slightly different applications. Definitely worth my time and I want to work through it again.
Jan 31, Amy rated it it was amazing. I am a Ted Dekker fan. I have been hooked on his novels since I read Three, I am in the Circle and met him at the Gathering in If I could only keep one of his writings, this would be the one.
It has removed a layer of the grime on the mirror. I plan to wear it out re-reading it.

Thank you, Ted. And Bill and Kevin. Jun 29, Shay Freeman rated it it was amazing. If you are looking for a Bible study to challenge your thinking and align you with love, it is in my top five EVER. I also did the study guide and with a small group the questions were not always easy, so much great information that I will also reread.

Ted Dekker uses language and imagery that breaks through the age-old perceptions of certain passages of New Testament Scripture and enables the reader to see it afresh and consider new ideas about what Jesus may have meant within the context of Love rather than fear and judgment. I went through this material with a small group and it had a transformative effect. The Forgotten Way gave us common language for expressing where we are in the process of awakening!

A very insightful book; thought-provoking and clear. Dekker does well to follow his declaration on the nature of what Christian life should be with scripture; painting a fine tapestry for humans to strive for. A very insightful book, I strongly recommend for anyone who is looking to understand their faith from a more Feb 24, Cathee rated it it was amazing. Some of us struggle with ourselves trying to deal with our aggression, depression, dependencies or selfishness. Others lose themselves in their environment through relationships, family and work.
A few of us manage to find paths which can help us to deal with ourselves and the people around us, but sometimes these paths are themselves hard to follow or even misleading. This is why we came up with the Forgotten Way initiative. Our aim is to band together and provide roadside assistance for people traveling life's path. We can all feel overwhelmed at times, but usually we are able to solve or endure any situation.
