Praise for Chazown

“It is depressing to consider how many people will go to bed tonight never having thought of how God wanted them to spend the day. As Craig points out, this is a deadly cycle that quickly culminates in a wasted life. Chazown reminds us of the brilliance of our God who carefully created us and empowered us for a life of purpose. I pray it rescues many from an eternity of regret and leads them toward the satisfying and meaningful life God intended.”
—Francis Chan, best-selling author of Crazy Love

“Craig Groeschel dreams God-sized dreams. But he’s also one of the most down-to-earth people I know. You can’t get close to him without getting a vision infection. And his church, Life Church, is like a church on steroids. Creativity oozes out of every pore, leaving a trail for churches to follow if they want to impact culture. If you need a dose of vision, pop the Chazown pill.”
—Mark Batterson, lead pastor of National Community Church, Washington DC, and best-selling author of In a Pit with a Lion on a Snowy Day, Wild Goose Chase, and Primal

“Craig Groeschel is a leading voice among the new generation of communicators. He knows how to articulate people’s deeply felt needs, and—even better—to help them identify and pursue their God-given dream with passion and purpose.”
—John Maxwell, author, speaker, and founder of INJOY Stewardship Services and EQUIP

Are you as happy as you want to be? If you were lying on your death bed and knew that time was running out--and also knew that your "doing" days were over--what kinds of thoughts would be running through your mind?

This might be a poor way to start a review for a book that I really, really want you to read. I hope not. I hope it rings a responsive chord. In 1991 I had a heart attack, and for 48 hours, I did not know whether I'd live or die. Those hours were filled with regrets--a realization of great hopes unrealized.

I got a second chance, but this book made me realize that I still have many hopes unrealized. After reading the book I now know why--and what to do about it. Chazown is from the Hebrew and it means "vision."

God has a unique plan or vision for your life, but do you know what it is? Do you believe that the God of the universe could have a plan or vision that fulfilling it would bring you more happiness, joy, and peace than you thought imaginable? More than your own plans even?

Groeschel lays out a way of finding that vision and acting on it that revolves around three knowable things, things that will take time to explore:

Your core values: What do you get passionate about? What gets you righteously angry when it is violated?

Your spiritual gifts: What are the things you do noticeably well, and love to do?

Your experiences: These experiences, both good and bad that make you who you are today.

The book lays out step by step how to focus and clarify these three things and identify where they converge. The author provides downloadable forms and a journal to help you with the thinking needed to find the answers to all the questions. It is a process, not a crash course--but a worthwhile process. It is simple, but not easy.

Armchair Interviews says: This is a challenge to you. Get this book if you are ready to maximize joy, peace, and happiness!

Everything about this book works! Good job marketing team!

From the moment I saw it on the shelf to opening the first few pages, I knew I'd found a book I could read, follow, and enjoy. It's so obvious that the book would work for an "addhd-ddd" like me that I had to have it no matter what it was about.

Each chapter of the book is set as to entertain those with a short attention span but much more likely to simply convey concepts that , run together, would be too difficult to apply to your own life. The multi colored pages, font disposition, and appropriate smatterings of art all accent the learning experience.

As much as I enjoyed all of the things mentioned above (yup, this book is intended to teach) this is about getting focused on your meaning, purpose or calling and taking the steps to realize God's dream for your life. Not only do we have dreams for ourselves, there is that specific and very special purpose (call/dream) that has been woven into the very fabric of our living. Too many people are bereft of any understanding of their "call" and therefore live a life of searching and struggling and missing the dream dreamt of us all.

If you know where you're going with life, this is a great book to work through with a struggling friend. If, like most people, you're trying to find your passionate dream to live out but a little unsure of your purpose in life, this eye catching little book will add great benefit to the search.

It is very difficult for an "outline" or "set of disciplines" book to not become a formula for growth work, which almost always results in the reader relying on the formula for growth instead of God and their love of and desire for God.

Groeschel avoids this mistake and has written a wonderfully clear and concise approach to achieving what you really want out of your life with the amazing thought that, wait for it, it might actually entail you taking this stuff seriously and making it a priority. What's amusing is that despite the fact that deep down we all know this, we either forget or disregard it. But Groeschel won't let you any longer.

The writing style is very conversational and light, which is why some individuals can correctly criticize the book for being a bit "surface-level" however this is not a book aimed at getting you to really contemplate and assess your beliefs but is more focused on equipping you to achieve an active growth through doing and planning.

In fact, planning for growth is the key message of this book, as the book's key verse echoes, if not screams, "Where there is no vision, the people perish (are unrestrained in other translations)," - Proverbs 29:18. I actually prefer the unrestrained translation because it hits closer to Groeschel's message, "Growth rarely, if never, happens by accident."

As a 27 year old collge graduate in the 3rd year of my profession, my thoughts began to wonder to what is next? Is my job all there is? Is there more to life? Is there more to the life I have been given? Chazown in simple yet profound language has given me a reason to look forward to each new day, and to not get bogged down in the monotony of everyday life, but to see life with a purpose, my OWN individual purpose that only I was created and put on this earth for.
Pastor Craig has delivered an awesome book on vision and purpose in life, but also has the tools nevessary to help us whether it is the online journal, or DVDs' that help us in finances, physical fitness, or relationships, this is one book that covers it all. I had read the Purpose Driven Life and thought it was alot of fluff, but Chazown not only had spiritual insight into the purpose God has for me, but also has the tools ( Life Development Plan found at [...] ) to help me determine and fullfill God's chazown for MY life.
