About the Author

K. Paul Dawson's journey in ministry consists of two decades of mission work and an additional fifteen years of church renewal. His work has stretched from the Amazon jungle to the Arctic Circle. He has served as a church planter, educator, evangelist and author. While his path has been unique, the process hasn't. Like others before him, his spiritual identity began with a naïve trust in what was known. The problem, however, is that one never knows what he doesn't know. So, knowledge is compelled to yield to mystery and Paul's appreciation of God grandeur came to exceed the scope of his knowledge.
Next came a certain pride in what had been achieved. That too was revealed to be vanity-for reasons too numerous to mention. With a touch of maturity, he began a focus on what he was becoming by the grace of God. That was a positive step. Lastly, he arrived at life's defining question: what motivates and consumes us? Does God stand at the center of our life or not? That represents a common spiritual trajectory. It begins with the arrogance of knowledge and ends with a God that transcends it. Hence, we start ministry full of ourselves-but conclude it, hopefully, filled with awe.
What qualifies Paul to write on this specific theme is his keen awareness of how unqualified he is to do so. Paul, at long last, grasps the irony of ministry: We go out by the power of God's intent on changing the world. Yet, ministry anticipates the transformation of just one individual: YOU! Paul submits this volume hoping that his journey and story can help transform yours.
