God Only Knows - Can You Trust Him with the Secret?

Overview

Experience that moment when you blink through astonished eyes and realize that what you just witnessed was God in your life.

Joe spent decades butting heads with God. He fancied himself a believer, but only, in truth, because he had been brought up to be. He had never really given it much thought. God was there, somewhere. Just not much of a factor in his life. Or so he thought until the day God actually spoke to him. Joe says. "He couldn't have painted a better picture if He ...

Overview

Experience that moment when you blink through astonished eyes and realize that what you just witnessed was God in your life.

Joe spent decades butting heads with God. He fancied himself a believer, but only, in truth, because he had been brought up to be. He had never really given it much thought. God was there, somewhere. Just not much of a factor in his life. Or so he thought until the day God actually spoke to him. Joe says. "He couldn't have painted a better picture if He had waltzed into Dallas, placed his hand around my throat and said, 'Look stupid, I've gone to a lot of trouble to set all this up, now back off and let this man talk!'"

Joe did back off, and what happened next began a rela¬tionship with God that would turn his life on its ear and leave him forever changed. But it took another twenty years for Joe to fully, unequivocally trust God. And to actually see the way God had been active in his life from the beginning. To understand how every devastation that he believed to be surely the end of life as he knew it had to happen exactly as God orchestrated it or there never would've been a Benji. Or a Benji film that became the #3 movie of the year. And there never would've been a best selling book that is changing the lives of horses all across the planet. Or a second love of his life after his Carolyn was called home.

God Only Knows is like reading a novel, emotionally involving and full of conflict while ever shredding away the camouflage of our resistance to fully trusting God so that we might ban the worries and concerns and climb out of the devastations because we know He is there, front and center, giving us the actual evidence that He is actively involved in our lives and loves us. Evidence that we can see and feel and touch.

Joe had to learn that God's plan almost always involved the dreaded word change; that very harsh times are often the cook pot of wonderful events; that God is always working in your life whether you want Him to or not. All of that is what this book is about. While hopefully inspiring others to listen up. To experience for themselves that moment when you blink through astounded eyes and realize that what you just witnessed was God in your life. To develop a truly personal relationship with Him, and to absolutely trust Him. Hopefully a little sooner - no, a lot sooner - than Joe did.

Meet the Author

Joe Camp showed us the heart and soul of a dog when he created the canine superstar Benji. And he lured us into the soul of a horse in his engaging, emotional, and often humorous best seller The Soul of a Horse: Life Lessons from the Herd, now in its 11th printing, a book that set traditional thinking about horses on its ear while changing the lives of horses and people all across the planet. Camp now deftly lures us into the heart and soul of his own life and his struggles with God in the book God Only Knows – Can We Trust Him with the Secret?

Camp has written, produced and directed seven theatrical motion pictures (including all of the Benji movies) cumulatively grossing well over the equivalent of $600 million in today's dollars, making him one of the most successful independent filmmakers of all time. In addition to his eight books about horses, Joe has also written three novels from his own screenplays, and several children's books. Joe Camp, film writer, producer, director, author, passionate speaker, and the man behind the canine superstar Benji believes that anything is possible if you work hard enough and have faith in yourself and God. Now he believes that, but Joe spent decades butting heads with God. He fancied himself a believer, but only, in truth, because he had been brought up to be. He had never really given it much thought. God was there, somewhere. Just not much of a factor in his life. Or so he thought until the day God actually spoke to him. Until the day when he blinked through astounded eyes and realized that what he had just witnessed was God in his life.

Even with all the accomplishments and media exposure, Camp is still in awe of his own success. "Inside, I'm still a kid sitting in a dark theater in Little Rock, Arkansas, watching Disney's 'Song of the South' or reading books like the Black Stallion with happy tears rolling down my cheeks," he says. "To be able to bring that that kind of happiness to others is very special."

    This is my favorite media review out of hundreds we have receive

    This is my favorite media review out of hundreds we have received: "Camp has become something of a master at telling us what can be learned, in this case specifically from horses, without making us realize we have been educated, and, that is, perhaps, the mark of a real teacher. His tightly written, simply designed, and powerfully drawn chapters often read like short stories that flow from the heart. " Jack L. Kennedy, The Joplin Independent
