Like many other friends, I have tried to study the 29th of December letter. In this process, it has been helpful to structure the content of the letter. However, I noticed that all letters explain extensively “the process of sustainable growth” where clusters are moving along a continuum of stages that are marked by milestones.

If you wish to get a better overview of this “process of sustainable growth”, perhaps the below study guides/aids will be of assistance. This post has one new study guide/aid and also references previously posted material on this topic.

  • A  listing the steps of the “process of sustainable growth” with references to key letters for further explanation and elaboration of each step from different perspectives. The elaborative references are from the 29th of December 2015 letter, the 28th of December 2010 letter, the Ridvan Message of 2010 and Insights from the frontiers of learning.   – Steps of Process of Sustainable Growth

Every now and then, I read a good non-fiction book. After having read it, I try to present the main points and the reasoning of the author, only to find myself failing. It seems that although  I have read the book, I have not really read or understood it as I should have. In order to remedy this, I experimented with a method. The method is simply to identify key sentences in each chapter or section and then number them. If I am successful in my attempt, I can go back and read those key sentences and get a pretty good repetition of the main points of the chapters. I tried this with the book “Revelation and Social Reality” written by Mr. Paul Lample. It is indeed a really good book about the whole process and relation between the Word of God and transformation of our own selves and our Society. I feel that, having read this book, I have widened my perspectives and increased my understanding of how the process of social transformation can take place. What I did more this time, was to write down all the key sentences and thus creating an outline of the book. One could perhaps say it is also a compilation. The outline cannot replace reading the book but it can, I hope, prove to be a powerful tool in better understanding and remembering what one has read.

Fortunately, this book can be downloaded for free from the publishers webpage – Palabra Publications.

You can find the outline here, Outline of Revelation & Social Reality
