Mac Brunson says that finding your way to God does not have to be left to chance. God has revealed Him self to the world in the person of His Son, Jesus Christ, and in the pages of His Word. The Bible reveals his thoughts, emotions, personality, and character so that we can know Him, not just know about Him. For those tired of searching for the meaning in life, or those weary of the humdrum routine of doing spiritual exercises with no apparent result, Brunson's book will help them find what they are looking for.

I believe that the vast majority of Christians do things to "seek God," but we have no real idea why we are doing them. Many of us go to church on Sundays because that's what we do in our culture, because it's the Baptist, Presbyterian, Evangelical, or Church of Christ thing to do. We spend our time reading the Bible and praying because that is what "good Christians" do. We do these things because we were raised to do them, because we want to be better people, because we want to improve our marriages, because we want our children to have a good foundation for life. Well, is this so wrong? Not at all. Desiring these things is healthy and right. But, and you knew a but was coming, they should never be our primary purpose for going to church, reading our Bibles, or praying. When we approach God with these things as our primary motivation, we actually walk away from our so-called spiritual experiences unchanged and without a revelation of the sacred. Our desire and prayer, instead, should be to get a vision of God so overwhelming that we can do nothing but get on our faces before Him. When that happens, everything else will dissolve and the glory of the living God will come into view.
