I found the material in this book to be extremely helpful in my own spiritual life. Anyone who has longed for sustained intimacy with Jesus will find help here. An intimate relationship with Jesus won't just happen. One has to be spiritually intentional. Chole gives readers the tools for such a journey.I really like that readers are required to do personal soul work before venturing further to developing an intimate relationship with Jesus. That section of the book answered many questions for me [...]

If yesterday’s word was “simple,” tomorrow’s word will be “slow.” Our culture is shifting from fast food to health food both physically and spiritually. Self-care, soul-care, life coaches, and spiritual retreats all show our dissatisfaction in quick fixes and fast faith. The Sacred Slow is an invitation to unhurried honesty before God. Formatted as 52 experiences, The Sacred Slow reminds readers on every page that God never wanted to use them: He always wanted to love them. Experienc [...]

For ME, the Sacred Slow has become a place of refuge. I sink my teeth deep into this book and find myself slowing down. I hit the pause button and sink deep into my chair and my breathing isn't as heavy any more. I take in every single word that Alice offers and I find through her writing that I am getting to know Jesus better through the art of slowing down. It's a place where we all say as humans we've allowed sin of busyness to steal joy, where we look at our lives and stop making excuses for [...]

A Slower Way to Connect with GodIn our culture, we love fast food, social media, anything that gives us instant gratification. As Chole points out, this may not be the most effective way to connect with God. Conferences and spiritual retreats are great for the quick fix, but we need something on a daily basis that connects us to our Savior. This book consists of 52 chapters. The format is a devotional followed by exercises. One exercise focuses on how your heart responds to the reading. The othe [...]

Alicia Britt Chole's The Sacred Slow: A Holy Departure from Fast Faith offers 52 spiritual exercises that highlight the importance of soul-care. Ours is a world driven by "fast" -- fast food and quick fixes. Our culture has been conditioned to have it all, and have it now. This beautiful devotional highlights the love of God that flows toward us every moment of life, and often in ways that slow all that fast living.Each chapter -- one for every week of the year -- offers a brief reading with two [...]

This is less of a book that you read and more of one that you do. It's about taking the time to understand you and how you identify with God. It's a guided process for going deeper in your relationship with God. I found the earlier movements more beneficial for me than the later ones. I had already journeyed through much of what was in movements eight through twelve. Others will likely have a different experience reflective of their own faith journey. The beauty of this book is that it will spea [...]

I received a complimentary copy. I feel like this book brings about a chance at fair discussion and debate and it incorporates tones that usually have people arguing about for hours on end. It depends on your strength and knowledge based on your own thoughts as this portrays what the author wants the reader to feel and think about. It is faith laced not really faith based but includes enough to push you a certain way when reading.

Could be done with several activities over 12 weeks, or one activity a week over the course of the year. Activity options include thought questions to discuss or journal over and action steps. Includes a facilitator's guide for groups as well as some space to complete a few of the activities in the book.

Can't recommend this enough! The combination of her thought provoking questions and insights coupled with the important (though often overlooked) message of slowing down with God is well worth the time and effort to soak in. If you feel frantic in life and your relationship with God this book is a must read!
