If you’ve ever thought that your neighbors don’t want to hear about God, you’re wrong. Ask.com, a question-based search engine, recently released the top 10 most frequently asked questions. The list is based on over a billion searches on their site since the year 2000. I was expecting to see silly questions, or childish riddles, but I couldn’t be more wrong.
Take a look at the list:
1. What is the meaning of life?
2. Is there a God?
3. Do blondes have more fun??4. What is the best diet?
5. Is there anybody out there?
6. Who is the most famous person in the world?
7. What is love?
8. What is the secret to happiness?
9. Did Tony Soprano die?
10. How long will I live?
Are you as surprised as I was? Your friends and neighbors, your family and the people you work with want to know about spirituality. They are asking questions about God, life, death, love and happiness. These are huge questions and it can be intimidating to try and take them on. But we do have the answers and now there’s a new tool that can help you as you share.
Soul Cravings Prequel is an authorized, abridged version of Erwin McManus’ popular book Soul Cravings. Soul Cravings and Soul Cravings Prequel deal with the search for three things everybody craves: destiny, intimacy, and meaning.
Take another look at that list of questions. How many of them are answered with these three cravings? You can use Soul Cravings Prequel and the companion site icravechange.com to share your faith in a open, conversational way. There is a series of videos on the site where you can hear Erwin McManus talk about each of these cravings. Try sharing one with a friend and have a conversation about it.
Soul Cravings Prequel is also fully integrated with mentoring. There are discussion questions peppered throughout the book. You can use these as conversation starters or encourage your friends to send their responses in to us and a mentor will carry on the discussion. You can order Soul Cravings Prequel books (just $4 each) from our site. We also have a Personal Mentoring Starter Kit available which includes the prequel and several other mentoring resources.
