Book Description: How do we really know that God is truly active in our world today? How can we recognize God's "footprints" not only in our vast and complex universe, but also intimately at work in our individual lives? Where can we find the totality of truth that will lead to great holiness of life as well as personal fulfillment? Amazing Odyssey of God's Grace In this exciting new three-tape (or CD) series, Coming to Know God, you will discover Alex Jones' infectious faith as he shares his deep love of Christ and His Church. Since his conversion to Catholicism, Jones readily affirms a profound gratitude to God for "being home" within the Catholic Church, and a tremendous love for the priesthood, the Sacraments, and the many holy believers he has encountered. In the first talk, "The Church Fathers Knew Best," Alex recounts how stumbling across the testimony of these ancient Christian believers literally changed his life and ministry. Through his intense research and reflection of the Early Church Fathers, the former Protestant Pastor was led to an incredible discovery of the priceless truth contained in their writings. From this ancient testimony, Alex quickly realized that many beliefs he held as a "Bible-believing" Protestant were insufficient and even unbiblical! And the deeper he dived into history, the more convinced he became that the Church has always been hierarchical, liturgical and "Eucharist-centered." You'll find out why Alex now boldly contends, "if it's new, it ain't true and if it is true, it ain't new"! In the second talk, "Keeping Our Eyes Fixed on Christ," you'll learn how to open your eyes of faith to the pervasive Presence of God in our midst. Rather than being distant or remote, Our Lord is very much present in our world, but we must move beyond our sinfulness to recognize Him both within us, and all around us. Using Biblical stories to illustrate his spiritual insights, Alex shows how we must get beyond our "sin nature" to fulfill God's will and experience His mercy. Only in this way can we overcome our sins and develop "acuteness of vision" to be able to discern God in our lives. In his final presentation, "Becoming a Friend of God," Alex Jones reflects upon what it means to form an intimate friendship with the Lord. Here he reveals the immeasurable benefits of "walking with God" despite the sacrifices and sufferings it may entail. While it may not be easy or popular, the radical transformation that can and will take place when one comes to know Jesus is astonishing. When we feel utterly alone and totally cast away from everyone else, Alex explains that God is close at hand. And when we fail and fall deeply into sin, God does not abandon us. Rather, He eagerly waits for the moment when we turn our hearts back to Him to seek His awesome forgiveness and mercy.
