Not Your Average 'Self Help' Book
- By LadyReadsAlot on 06-04-18
A lot of Common Sense for the 21st Century
I friend of mine bought the hardcover book for me as a gift so I decided to get the audio book as well. I my opinion this is one of the rare books "self help" that I found myself agreeing with. The author is actually not talking about theories or things that will give a person warm feelings and make them feel good about themselves. Rather, this is about the experience of the author apply his 12 rules to everyday life situations.
- Rediscovering the One I Thought I Knew
- By: Fr. Anthony Messeh
- Narrated by: Fr. Anthony Messeh
- Length: 5 hrs and 54 mins
Too many people stumble through life with an inaccurate view of who God is. They believe in His existence, but don't know how to relate to Him in a practical and meaningful way. As a result, they fail to achieve anything beyond a superficial relationship with their Creator, and live less-than-fulfilling lives. In Whatever, God, Fr. Anthony Messeh shares his unique story and the lessons he's learned that helped him go from a "don't get too close to God because He might ruin your life" Christian, to a fully devoted "I can't get enough of God in my life" believer.
