Book Description

These pages give you practical help to look honestly at yourself — and by doing so, to attain the deepest desire of every sincere Christian: union with God Himself.

No longer will you be diverted from the search for God . . . or live in fear of losing your soul. Rather, with the help of the monk Hubert van Zeller, you’ll learn how to spot — and avoid — dangerous spiritual distractions. You’ll find out how to keep your feet on the path that leads to holy wisdom: true knowledge of yourself . . . and of God.

From van Zeller, you’ll discover how to grow into the person Christ means you to be — no matter how far you still have to go. Your new knowledge will draw you closer to God and charge your life with a transforming spiritual vigor.

How to Find God is a spiritual banquet for every Christian who wants to attain true self-knowledge and to be united with Him who is the fount of all joy.

Editorial Reviews


American Benedictine Review
Brisk and readable . . . a book for all who enjoy the inner search, the life of genuine prayer.

The Priest
Magnificent. . . . Its simplicity makes it of value not only for adepts but for all who can crawl, however feebly, to their Father s arms.

5.0 out of 5 stars A life changing book! September 13, 2002
By A Customer
This book is wonderful insight into the mind and soul of humanity. The subject matter is not something to be taken lightly. The title of this book sums it up very well: "How to Find God, And discover you true self in the process!" is a very spiritual book that has helped me to understand myself better than I've been able to. I am in my mid 20's with and had no problems understanding this book (I actually understand this book much better than I understand myself), but I have a strong Christian background and I could see this book as being confusing to someone who lacks this. Even so, I would recommend this book to everyone who seeks to know themselves. This book is so inspiring that I've had to read several pages again and again and simply marvel at how true and insightful are the author's words. Van Zeller (the author) was a Benedictine Monk I believe, and he was educated by the Benedictines in the early part of the 20th century. I am very excited to read more of his works. At times, he can be a little wordy, but there is no comparison to Shakespeare !! Much of the style is very straightforward and personal. Here is quote from the very beginning of Chapter 7, that is a favorite of mine: "It is a common mistake to confuse the virtue of religion with the love of God." A mistake that I've made several times in my own life. This doesn't sound like Neo-Shakespearean intellectualism to me. This is truly the voice of a good man who found God and himself.

Life Changing Book!!!! This book isn't at all hokey and psychological dribble...deep intellectual and spiritual material that does wonders in a true Christian's pursuit of God. Finding one's own self is simply the result of finding God's Truth and this book does an amazing job of jam packing spiritual depth into readable and simple terms. Recommend it for any Catholic!!!!

1.0 out of 5 stars Hard to read June 3, 2001
By A Customer
I wanted someone else's insight as to how they found God.
This book might be good, if I could understand it. I have a Bachelor of Science degree, but it is too intellectual for my taste, and I was rather good in English. At first I thought it sounded Shakesperean, and sure enough he quoted from Shakespeare later on. If you want a simple dialog, this is not the book for you. If you loved literature and Shakespeare in college, go for it. To quote one paragraph from the book: "The first step toward knowing who I am meant to be is to know who I am not meant to be. And it is this person, this false identity, whom I carry around for the greater part of my life under the mistaken conviction that this is I myself, the real me, who has to be repudiated.
It just wasn't for me. I was looking for something more personal.
