Reviews

"Combining the spiritual practice of curiosity with the art of asking soulful questions is a salutary path to inward transformation and social change. Just consider what would happen if through every community, people asked, 'What can I do for you?'"--Frederic and Mary Ann Brussat, Spirituality & Practice, May 2017
"Recommended for new believers or those needing spiritual reorientation."--Gerald Wisz, Christian Market, June 2017
"Curiosity may have killed the cat, but for Casey Tygrett it is also an essential ingredient to human growth. It takes only a little curiosity to move us toward knowing our friends better, to stumble across unforeseen opportunities, to understand our own thoughts and feelings. Pastor, blogger, spiritual director and author, Tygrett takes an engaging approach to being more curious. When we stop asking questions, he says, we give up. That's how asking questions becomes a spiritual practice."--Chauncey Mabe, Success Magazine, April 28, 2017
