The Meaning of Life is the transcription of a series of six talks given by Norman Grubb in the early 1970's to Camps Farthest Out, a non-denominational group of Christians seeking to find the deeper truths of God…of themselves…of life...and how to live it. CFO had numerous guest speakers and this was one of several times Norman shared his `knowings' with them. Norman's passion and joy was always to tell every seeker how a perfect God lives in His perfectly created humans.
In John 17, Jesus' last prayer before He goes to the Cross, Jesus prays for all of those who will believe in Him…that we might be one even as He and the Father are one. Jesus called the promise of His Cross oneness and unity…Norman spoke of the fulfillment of His promise as our union with Christ. In these talks Norman shows us, step by step, how the Father accomplishes His purposes for each of us.
The front cover of this book is a `shadow' of this very truth. It is a picture of Moses' burning bush - a common bush aflame, yet not consumed…a profound image of man aflame with the Living Christ, but remaining fully human! This IS the meaning of life…God living and moving and having His being in and as man…Christ was seen and experienced through the human Jesus two thousand years ago and since Pentecost…Christ, by His Holy Spirit, has come to live again in all who receive Him.
