A guide to personal spiritual renewal for those who feel disconnected from God, faith and transcendent purpose.
Drawing on the well-known story of the prodigal son, the author shows how most people set out with good intentions, only to find themselves floundering in what he calls "spiritual amnesia." He dares readers to accept a 30-day spiritual challenge by praying each day, "God, if you are real, make yourself real to me." Then he walks readers through the five crucial awakenings that take them from doubt and confusion to love, purpose and meaning.
:"God, if you're real, make yourself real to me."
Each of us spends our lives on a journey toward God. Yet often our most deeply felt longings-for meaning, for love, for significance-end up leading us away from, instead of toward, our Creator and the person he made us to be.
Finding Your Way Back to God shows you how to understand and listen to your longings in a whole new way. It's about waking up to who you really are, and daring to believe that God wants to be found even more than you want to find him. It's about making the biggest wager of your life as you ask God to make himself known to you. And it's about watching what happens next.
