Chazown By Craig Groeschel

Chazown is a really interesting and thought provoking book. Craig Groeschel leads you through a number of different categories and life circumstances that help in the discovery of what it is that God created you for. He helps you to discover what your core values and your spiritual gifts are, as well as what past experiences helped form you into the person God desires you to be. According to Groeschel, where these three overlap you can see what God's vision is for you life (your Chazown).

It is a very well written and well thought out book with a strong biblical base. I had a difficult time with was that some of the chapters seemed to be geared towards someone who was older than my 21 years. Eventually, however, I will be at the point in my life where those chapters fit better. So, that's not much of a quarrel, and more of a need to wait and read it again later.

This book is absolutely worth the money ($14.99) that it is listed for on the back cover. It facilitated many nights of retrospection and introspection. Both of those lead to some very surprising, and oddly comforting, realizations about my life and future. I would highly recommend this book.
