"God really is real! I never experienced him before now."
"I felt like there had to be something more--I think I've found it!"
"God doesn't just love everyone--he loves me!"
It's exciting when someone has a living encounter with the God of the universe. A lightbulb goes on, and everything feels new. But with that sense of exhilaration comes the realization: in order to take one's faith seriously, things must change.

"How can I keep this alive?"
The authors of Encounter Jesus believe that what's really being asked is: "Now that I've discovered Jesus, how do I become his disciple? What do I have to do to continue to encounter him?" An encounter with Jesus is a very significant experience, and Fr. Dave and Deacon Ralph show readers how to move from discovering their faith to following Jesus wherever he leads them along the path of discipleship.
