God calls people to him, and until you have had an experience (relationship) with GOD you can't truly follow him. This is where the author suggests that you seek out where GOD is doing his works around you. Rather than you saying "I will do this for GOD", the author would have you first find GOD, let GOD change you through an experience/relationship and then let GOD show you where he is working. That will then be your opportunity to join GOD in his works and grow your relationship further.
That is general gist of this book - I'm far from perfect but it reads well and it has proven to be extremely helpful to me. If you are seeking a deeper spiritual connection with the ALMIGHTY, then this book could be just what you need.
There are two major methods Christians serve God: (1) Wait on the Lord for confirmation, then proceed or (2) proceed, asking God to stop you if it is not His will (a.k.a. asking God to bless your plans). Many have made the mistake of using method #2, whether on their own initiative or bad advice from others. Others have been blessed by using method #1. I have experienced both and realize the need to seek out God's will by watching to see what God is doing around me. Henry Blackaby does a good job of breaking it down to 7 principals or steps.
This book is good for many types of readers. You can read only one chapter, all the chapters or some number in between. You can skim parts of however many chapters you want. Many good insights in this book. Sometimes God does call you to do something outside of your primary gifts.
May the Lord bless you as you grow in knowing and doing the will of God.
