Book Read #1: The Gift Of Self Discovery by David Benner.

Words from Chapter 1- Transformational Knowing of Self and God:

Knowing God and knowing about God are two different things. What can you learn about yourself and God that can only arise from your encounter with the divine?

Although Jesus told Peter he would deny him, Peter did not want to believe it. Doubting Jesus was easier than doubting himself. The interweaving of the deepening knowledge of self and God that we have seen in Peter’s experience illustrates the way genuine knowing of God and self occurs. Peter could not truly know Jesus apart from knowing himself in relation to Jesus. He did not know himself until Jesus showed him who he was. But in learning about himself, he also came to truly know Jesus.
