“Chazown: (pronounced khaw-zone) from the Hebrew, meaning a dream, revelation or vision.”
Craig Groeschel’s Chazown is based on the verse found in Proverbs 29:18: “Where there is no vision, the people perish.” The subtitle sums up the entire book: Define Your Vision, Pursue Your Passion, Live Your Life on Purpose. Who among us does not want to know whether or not we are living God’s vision for our lives?
In a Biblically-based, reader-friendly format, Mr. Groeschel walks the readers through the necessary steps to discover God’s vision for their life and how to implement that vision.
The book is divided into five sections and within those sections, each chapter contains the wisdom and direction the reader needs to walk the journey of discovering their vision. The readers will find Key Thoughts that will motivate them to think how the truths in the preceding paragraphs might apply to them. At the end of each of the five sections are exercises designed to challenge the readers to pray and think about the questions posed by Mr. Groeschel. The readers are encouraged to participate even further by writing down what God shares with them during the exercise.
There is also a personal and/or group study guide, as well as helpful appendixes to assist the readers in developing a personal time line and clarifying their core values and spiritual gifts.
This book is revolutionary. If you don’t know the vision God has for your life, Chazown will help you to discover that vision. If you’ve ever wondered if you are following God’s vision for your life, this book will confirm that for you. And if you are positive you are following God’s vision, this book will reinforce your vision even more.
Chazown is a book that that will become a permanent part of your library because you will want to read it…and read again every year or so. It is that good.
