It's always fascinating to think about this possibility to change one's own life radically,
Encourage not to lead our way with our "rational" mind, but to give importance instead on our heart, faith, and intition.


PREFACE

A former Black Panther leader and radical of the 1960s returns from exile and announces, “My life has turned 180 degrees. I have been born again.”

[quote, John 3:3]
“I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God”

Man apart from God is spiritually dead.


PART ONE: MAN’S PROBLEM

1. Why Am I So Empty?

But what about the greater issues of life and death? Do we plan?

THE SELF-MADE MAN

We are taught to be independent, to make it on our own. As we look at an individual we may say, “Now there’s someone who’s made it!” We admire him and respect his ability to “pull himself up by his bootstraps.”

FAME AND FORTUNE

the meaninglessness of life for a man who has everything to live with, but nothing to live for.

IS THE INTELLECTUAL SEARCHING ?

“Man today wants to experience God. It is not faith or knowledge which is the key word, but experience.”

WHO NEEDS HELP ?

When it comes to the disasters of our inner earthquakes some intellectuals want to know the source of help and all the details concerning that source.

If anyone is to find the answer to his search he must reject much of his old system and plunge into a new one. He will see the possibility of what he thought was impossible.

“When you find yourself lost in the mountains, never go down—always go up. At the top of the ridge you can get your bearings and find your way again.”
We can become lost in the mountain of life. We have two choices; we can either go down and get caught in drugs, depression, emptiness, and confusion, or we can keep heading up. The direction we go will determine whether we find ourselves or not.
