Finding God & Your True Self: a desperate journey

From the back cover: "It takes heart to do anything worthwhile, and finding God is no different. We will never find God with our 'own understanding' (Proverbs 3:5). Our intellect and powers of reason are no match for a God who, many times, defies explanation. When we truly find God, we will also have to come to grips with our False Self in order for our True Self to emerge. Through the death of the False Self and the resurrection of the True Self, we will come 'to know this love that surpasses knowledge' (Ephesians 3:19). The spiritual journey is a desperate one in the sense that we cannot make it on our own. We must possess a deep yearning and longing for God's presence. The old hymn says it well: 'I need Thee every hour.' The pursuit of our True Self requires a struggling with and striving after God. And likewise, it is only through resting in and wrestling with God that our True Self emerges. Come! Let's find God and Your True Self."
