Overview

Bestselling author Cecil Murphey (90 Minutes in Heaven) has enraptured countless readers with his lyrical style and deft storytelling, selling millions of books and winning numerous awards. Yet behind the scenes of his successful career, Murphey is on a personal quest for a deeper knowledge of God and himself. Out of this thirst for the transcendent comes Knowing God, Knowing Myself, a collection of reflective statements captured with Murphey's inimitable style. These aphorisms are often surprising, meant to startle the reader out of "common wisdom" into uncommon meditation; the goal is God- and self-discovery.

Whether readers begin with a desire to know God or to know themselves, Knowing God, Knowing Myself will invite them to discover how these two longings are inextricably entwined. As they reflect and journal through this unforgettable book, readers will experience a growing awareness of God's presence and a deepened inner life.
