The I Ching has been used for thousands of years by billions of people and you will learn how to use this remarkable tool to ask for God’s guidance on how to respond to your greatest challenges.
You will learn how to properly form your questions, manipulate the query stones to receive six numbers, translate those numbers into one of the 64 ancient I Ching archetypes, and then interpret those archetypes into specific actions that God is calling on you to take.
You will learn how to integrate the most widely used discernment tool in history into your daily spiritual practice.

What kinds of questions are appropriate for the Christian I Ching?
The Christian I Ching is not a fortune telling device. It is a serious tool for helping us understand how God is calling us to move forward in a given situation. So it is not appropriate to ask, "Is there a move in my future?" It is appropriate to ask, "How is God calling me to respond to this move opportunity?"
How does the Christian I Ching relate to other I Chings?
The Christian I Ching is a reinterpretation of the I Ching from a Christian perspective. The 64 archetypes correspond to the 64 hexagrams in a typical I Ching.
