The Quest Lessons

The Quest For Spiritual Awareness

The Quest

In response to The Christward Ministry's many requests from serious students who wish to apply deeper Christian principles to their everyday living, this study course entitled The Quest is being republished online.

Six volumes were originally published with 12 lessons in each volume. Many of these lessons were also given as lectures during this time. It is intended that each lesson occupy a month's study. This series of lessons is designed to give its readers a twofold experience:

  1. To reveal more about the step by step ways to apply the Christ teachings, thus leading to success in the quest for spiritual awareness.
  2. To furnish students with a course of spiritual instruction that combines the metaphysical mystical, and esoteric levels of Christian truth, giving depth and meaning to the consecrated Christian life.

The course opens with humanity's most vital and needful occupation—improved relationship with God. Some of the lessons will contain devotional topics, but these will later be balanced by deeply esoteric subjects. It is suggested that the student review each lesson again and again before going on to the next so that the reminders for applying the techniques will be ever fresh in your mind and heart.

Happy studies and practices to you! May you experience an ever expanding, heightened consciousness, strongly in tune with Christ and His glorious Way!

Sincerely yours,

Flower A. Newhouse
