About the Author

Shane's story is not unlike many Christians today. Growing up in church, he was taught that God was kind, loving, and always protected His children, but at a young age, tragic circumstances would wound Shane's heart beyond repair. He ran from God as fast as he could, but through some incredible experiences, God proved Himself faithful, and at 28 Shane had a personal encounter with the Lord that changed his life forever. He would come to know Christ, not through what he was taught, but by experiencing Him first hand. Since that time, Shane has been passionately committed to reaching others like himself who have known about God, but who have never known God. This book is the inspiring story of his pursuit to know Christ and Christ's faithful response to his prayer, "Lord, help me know you." It is a story of redemption, restoration, and revelation. This story might possibly change your entire perspective on the Christian life.

The most chilling words in the Bible for me are those spoken by Jesus in Matthew 7:23 "I never knew you; Depart from Me..." Who was He speaking to? Jesus said that MANY would say "'Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name cast out demons, and in Your name perform many miracles?" That means those people will be active in the church and ministry - and most likely call themselves Christians -- and yet He will say "I NEVER KNEW YOU; Depart from Me"

No matter how we were introduced to Jesus or came into His church, our enthusiasm, or maybe the directions given to us, led us to jump in trying to serve or please him with our deeds. But that is not how Jesus lived or walked with His first followers, His disciples.

This book begins there - highlighting how we gloss past the desire that Jesus so clearly spelled out - that we KNOW Him. Jesus asked the disciples in John 14 "Have I been so long with you, and yet you have not come to know me?"

The author concisely demonstrates the heart of Jesus is for us to truly know Him, which will lead us to truly love Him, and then to serve Him. The author diverts to his own story (testimony) from a young child with complete faith in God to a grown man carrying the wounds of this life that shaped in him an image of an uncaring and distant God. He takes us through his decision to leave God behind and make his own way in the world. Although rebellious and unworthy, God pursues him and loves him until.... well I won't spoil the story, but obviously God breaks through or there would never have been a book called "Lord, help me know YOU.

Very well-written. Great guide on how to get to know Christ, if that's your thing. The book is very easy-to-follow and the information is broken down in nice, easy-to-read chapters.

I think that the author rightly identifies the problem that most Christians face and that is the expectation of service and understanding why they do what they do. However, What I don't like about his book is that while the author states that his book is not a 'how to' book to know God better, he goes ahead and does exactly what he says he is not trying to do: he provides steps on how to one can come to know God. What makes me most hesitant about the book is that this is a book about the author and how he came to know God and now that he knows God, he will show his readers how they can too if they just follow his example and it is not really about how God has been with him the whole time even when the author didn't know it. This boom is a book about getting to know Shane Walsh nit God. Alos his use of scripture to make his points are shallow and taken out of context and when that happens the point of certain passages can be lost or confused. The book is a burden to read and puts a burden on others. Now I am not saying that the author is not being genuine or that his book may not be useful at all. I think that he really is trying his best to understand what it means to know God, however if the foundation is not laid correctly, the building will not stand and I don't think the foundation of this book is grounded securely in the truth of the Gospel. I would say that if you desire to know God, read the Bible and faithfully a attend a church where you will hear the the Gospel preached and the sacraments administered (Lord's Supper and Baptism). You will come to know God much better from reading the Word of God and hearing the Gospel preached, and be reminded of what Christ has done for you on the cross when you receive the sacraments, much more than from reading any book that makes God a supporting cast member instead of the main character.
