Come on a life improving journey and explore the transforming Ways of God.
The Christ Culture is a fresh way of looking at God’s desire for our life in the earth. This book brings clarity to the most important concepts of Christianity and shines light on these unappreciated aspects of our faith walk. It affirms God dwells in our midst today, as a culture that forms us into our created purpose.
Scripture declares Jesus came to reveal God as our Father and to be the light of our life (John 1:1-5, 9-14). Matthew’s Gospel proclaimed Jesus would be called both “Christ” and “Emmanuel” (1:16, 23). When we consider Christ means “anointed” and Emmanuel means “God with us,” we realize; Jesus came as “the anointed presence of God with us,” to be the revealing illumination of our life.
Jesus, as God with us, said he would never leave or forsake us. He also said he would be in our midst as a presence when we share God inspired insights and experiences with each other. Jesus, as a presence in the culture of Christ, continues to dwell with us: to inspire, influence, lead, and guide us – often without our awareness.
The 8 Ways of God are the motivational methods, functional systems, and developing processes that our heavenly Father uses to help us grow and mature as His children. The Christ Culture shines light on the Ways of God and helps us see how to best apply them to our personal experience.
This book describes the transforming spiritual atmosphere that is formed when the Ways of God actively function among us. The quality of our daily life improves as we learn to have godly attitudes and develop godly behaviors in this interactive culture of Christ.
“The Christ Culture is a great reflection of the Lord’s desire for us. Keith has found a way to lovingly, yet powerfully, provoke us to come into the true nature of ‘Christ among us.’” Sandi Querin.

Research has shown that our retention is greatly increased when insights are discussed. Friendly conversation helps enlarge everyone’s understanding and can ease the application of new insights into our daily lives.
Each time we pursue learning within the context of probing discussions, amazing things happen: A unique depth of understanding develops and personal accountability is encouraged as we “spur one another on toward love and good deeds” (Hebrews 10:24). Life is truly meant to be lived together!
