The Assignment

The ASSIGNMENT is a book that was inspired by constant questions from people who simply wanted to know, what life is all about? The desire to find purpose and significance is a staggering need for the modern church of today. People who find it truly know peace. Those who do not, can search a lifetime and never know that the answer is right in front of them. Inside these pages are unique perspectives that are expected to trigger those “ah ha!” moments for every reader. Truly, this could be the “GAME CHANGER” that effects you for the rest of your life!

My Thoughts:

I have heard so many people in life talk about finding themselves and I think did you think your lost? Well, I think what most people are searching for is what is their purpose in life, not really searching for themselves.  We all look for a reason for anything that happens whether is be a positive or a negative.  In this book the author discusses not only the meaning of life, but also the purpose of life or our journey through life.  
The book is divided into 13 chapters which are about 4 to 5 pages in length.  At the end of each chapter Key Words are reviewed and defined as used in the chapter.  The next area is Workbook Activities which includes several questions that the reader can answer.  Each one is designed for the reader to dig deep within themselves and find answers or thoughts abut the chapter.  
This is a well written book that is easy to comprehend. The author uses both scripture and logic in his explanations.  The layout of the book is perfect for a small group study or even an individual. I would recommend it to anyone looking for answers as to why we are here.  Even though this book is small it is filled with a vast amount of knowledge that would benefit anyone in their journey of life.
