“Is something missing from your life? Are you aware that God has more for you? Seek Him. He will give you a chazown. And not just any, but one that is tailored specifically for you.”
Hard to Pronounce, Easy to Discover
Chazown (kha-ZONE) is the Hebrew word for the dream, revelation, or vision God was thinking about when he made you. You’re one of a kind, placed on earth with a plan that’s yours alone to carry out. God isn’t hiding it. He wants you to know and embrace it!
Fulfilling your chazown is one of the most enjoyable, rewarding things you’ll ever do—because the blueprint is customized by your architect, the One who knows you best. That doesn’t mean it’s always easy though, which is why author Craig Groeschel provides plenty of battle-tested ways to stay on course.
Why waste another day aiming for the wrong target—or none at all? Take your first steps toward pursuing God’s chazown for you!
“It is depressing to consider how many people will go to bed tonight never having thought of how God wanted them to spend the day. As Craig points out, this is a deadly cycle that quickly culminates in a wasted life. Chazown reminds us of the brilliance of our God who carefully created us and empowered us for a life of purpose. I pray it rescues many from an eternity of regret and leads them toward the satisfying and meaningful life God intended.”
—Francis Chan, best-selling author of Crazy Love
“Craig Groeschel dreams God-sized dreams. But he’s also one of the most down-to-earth people I know. You can’t get close to him without getting a vision infection. And his church, Life Church, is like a church on steroids. Creativity oozes out of every pore, leaving a trail for churches to follow if they want to impact culture. If you need a dose of vision, pop the Chazown pill.”

I read a lot of Christian, non-fiction "self help" type books. I liked that this one not only included the "why" and "what" but also the "how", something that is often left out, in my opinion. The practical steps needed to act on the inspiration the book provides are a nice addition, that I believe are new in this rerelease of the book.
