Editorial Reviews

Review

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.

By A Customer on September 13, 2002
Format: Paperback
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.

This is not a book to skim through. It is very deep and profound. I found myself reading a paragraph and then rereading it, to really absorb what was being said. That is the point, absorb it. Think about the words and how they apply to your life. The problem today is that people want a quick fix, doesn't work that way.

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!!!!

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.
