Dr. Greg Hunt had devoted nearly 30 years to congregational ministry, helping people experience God and find their way in life. Then came his crisis of faith and calling: He turns to God for guidance, but is unable to "find" God. Neither his education-a Ph.D. in theology-nor his religious involvements-senior pastor of a multi staff congregation, civically and denominationally engaged leader-could protect him against the disorienting impact of the experience. Days turned into months. Months became seasons. Seasons added up to a year, then two. He began to wonder if his faith had been delusional: Was God even real? In the midst of his struggle, he tries a sometimes desperate experiment of devotion: could he have a personal encounter with God through the redletters of Jesus, as recorded in the Gospel of Matthew? The outcome is startling, and changes his life entirely. Greg's story draws readers into potentially life-transforming journeys of their own. An in-built Study Guide personalizes your experience.
