9 Spiritual Styles: How do you most naturally connect with God?
The 3 Colors of Your Spirituality portrays nine spiritual styles and helps every believer identify which one is the most natural way for them to connect with God: the sensory, rational, doctrinal, Scripture-driven, sharing, ascetic, enthusiastic, mystical or sacramental style. Based on this fundamental discovery, the book outlines a growth path resulting in passion, balance, and maturity.
