Book Review | Chazown: Getting in God’s Zone

From the beginning the usefulness of Craig Groeschel‘s book is found in the short, compact and direct chapters. Each chapter gives you one thing to think about as Craig walks you through the process of discovering and articulating God’s vision for your life. For anyone that is truly searching to understand what God has designed them to do, but has been unable to put that idea or dream into words, Chazown would be a great resource to give out.

This is not about getting rich quick, or “5 Easy Steps to a Better Life.” Chazown requires hard work. Sometimes making you look deep within yourself, asking difficult and even uncomfortable questions so that you will be able to honestly interact with God in the journey to living out God’s vision for your life. American culture tries to convince the church and her members, that it is possible to achieve instant gratification. That is what they are selling. But Craig makes it clear, that you cannot make the changes required in a day. It takes the steady and persistent work of being self-disciplined.

Chazown in both encouraging, practical and entertaining. It is simple to read, and there is a ready progression from one topic to the next. Each building on the previous one and building the framework that you need to discover, achieve and live into your Chazown.
