Becoming Curious: A Spiritual Practice of Asking Questions

Casey Tygrett
Publisher: IVP Books, 2017, 192 pages.
ISBN: 978-0830846276
ASIN: B0716J26S2


This is a book about the discipline of asking questions. Tygrett suggests that curiosity moves us deeper into the lives of people around us, leads to opportunities we never knew existed, helps us understand our emotions, and if focused on Jesus, will make us more like him. Instead of settling for easy answers in life, Tygrett implores us to ask questions for the sake of transformation of the soul. Questions can bring something beautiful, poetic, joyful, and happily disruptive to our lives. When we make curiosity a spiritual practice, we open up to new ways of knowing God and knowing ourselves as well.
