The Deuteronomy Project

Author Richard B. Couser has gone Home to the Lord. But part of his legacy is the work, this book, that he was led to write. One of the reasons I decided to join this blog tour was to honor the legacy because it is what I would want done for me too, to have the work of my heart continue to reach out beyond my life and help others. How wonderful to have that opportunity to do for someone else what I would like done for me.

Sometimes a small thing turns into a very potent moment. In The Deuteronomy Project, a nudge starts off a mentoring relationship like that we all wish for--guidance and direction when we don't know where we are going or what we are supposed to do with our lives. It also helps us to understand through a story some of the things that we get frustrated with about ancient tomes. How do you know what cultural significance certain laws have? And how do the relate to us today? I love great teaching that explains the mysteries of culture from thousands of years ago compared to today. I get fascinated figuring out all those tidbits that open up a whole new world of comprehension.

Yes, unraveling the ancient is really cool. But when someone can help make it real, well, that's a special gift.
