Item description for The Vow: How a Forgotten Ancient Practice Can Transform Your Life by Ed Gungor...

In this follow-up to "There is More to The Secret," Gungor challenges the church to return to authenticity and community by encouraging believers to make vows and, as a result, insert various Christian practices into their lives.

Publishers Description
In his first release since the best-selling There is More to the Secret, Ed Gungor challenges the church to return to authenticity and community.

Over and over again in scripture Christians are encouraged to "make vows to the Lord" (e.g., Psalm 76:11). Is it possible that making vows-- intentionally inserting various Christian practices into our lives-- would have great value to 21st-century Christians? What if we thoughtfully and publicly articulated vows before God and those we love? Would it help our lives take on the tone of the eternal? Has something been lost in the openness of the 21st century? The answer is yes

Gungor says: "Vow-making is an old trail that was very familiar to the ancients who have gone before us, but is virtually unknown for we moderns. As I have wandered down this path, it has been both intriguing and empowering, and, on another level, just plain dangerous. But I really think it's leading somewhere. That's the why of this writing."

Reviews - What do customers think about The Vow: How a Forgotten Ancient Practice Can Transform Your Life?

Forgotten Promises  Jun 23, 2008
Reviewed by Carol Hoyer for Reader Views (6/08)

"The Vow" by Ed Gungor is a powerful book that makes each reader look at promises they have made and changed depending on their circumstances and how they feel. Each of us at one time or another has promised that we would live the good life and remember to love and obey God's words. How many times have we broken those promises?

When we think of vows today, we think of marriage vows - "to love, honor and obey." That is what making vows to God meant in ancient times and the definition has not changed today. Mr. Gungor spends time talking about the history of vow making, how he came to realize its importance to him and how many of us believe they are outdated and not worth it. In a society that is fast-paced, high in crime and violence, does it really do any good to say that one will follow the right path, be kind to others and live a good life?

The author does a wonderful job of explaining how vows started, what their purpose is and why we should make them. Each chapter builds on the other and he gives very good examples of making vows that are easy-to-read and understand. Vows don't have to be heavily detailed or large in quantity - a vow is something that says "I want to be better in my life; I want to be more accepting and believe that there is good."

"The Vow" is a very thought-provoking read. The end result after reading this book is that when we make a vow to God, we need to honor it.
