Over the years, FC Vogt has pursued truth and spirituality in many ways. This led him down various paths of learning and experience. He wanted to write about it in a way that might be helpful to other travelers on this trip. He wanted to leave the mark he could in the pursuit of spiritual formation because it was so important to him. Writing about them from the broad lens of faith gave him a broad context that would include all that he considers necessary components of a rich spiritual life.

“Four Legs and a Stretcher: Building an Intentional Faith that Leads to Godliness” (published by Archway Publishing) is a metaphor for the intentional efforts one must make to develop an intimate and meaningful relationship with God, which Vogt sees as the goal of faith. A second metaphor woven through the chapters of the book describes growth in faith as a spiritual journey that can be purposefully and successfully traveled if properly equipped. Throughout the book, readers will find anecdotes and highlights from Vogt’s life that will make their faith journey relevant and achievable.

“Faith is God’s method of bringing mankind into consecrated fellowship with him. In relation to this, faith is essentially about the presence of God in our lives. Faith determines the degree to which our knowledge of God transforms into a relationship with God. Faith measures how we respond to it, deepen our understanding, and change our lives because of it,” Vogt points out.

When asked what he wants readers to take away from the book, Vogt replies, “God wants every part of us, but especially our hearts. And a heart-centered practice to build and grow in divine faith is what I hope to impart through scripture, some thoughts from other writers, some metaphors that have helped me, and some stories about how God personally was involved in bringing me to Him. I pray that the words on these pages will speak to your heart and have a helpful effect on your perspective and understanding of your faith journey.
