How to Find God will help you look honestly at yourself — and by doing so, to attain the deepest desire of every sincere Christian: union with God Himself.
No longer will you be diverted from the search for God . . . or live in fear of losing your soul. Rather, with the help of the monk Hubert van Zeller, you’ll learn how to spot — and avoid — dangerous spiritual distractions. You’ll find out how to keep your feet on the path that leads to holy wisdom: true knowledge of yourself . . . and of God.

From van Zeller, you’ll discover how to grow into the person Christ means you to be — no matter how far you still have to go. Your new knowledge will draw you closer to God and charge your life with a transforming spiritual vigor.

How to Find God is a spiritual banquet for every Christian who wants to attain true self-knowledge and to be united with Him who is the fount of all joy.

"Brisk and readable . . . a book for all who
enjoy the inner search, the life of genuine prayer."
American Benedictine 

"Magnificent . . . Its simplicity makes it of
value not only for adepts but for all who can crawl,
however feebly, to their Father's arms."
The Priest
