And I love that his stories have such heart. I appreciate as well how with sweet transparency, he takes us along on his journey to satisfy the yearning to grow closer to God. Loving every part of Knowing God, Knowing Myself!

    Skillfully Succinct Wealth of Wisdom

    A prolific writer, Cecil Murphey is adept at succinctly stating a deep spiritual truth in a quick and easy literary vignette, and even more skillfully in an aphorism. Only a writer would be content to hide a wealth of wisdom in a tiny little phrase called an aphorism—a hidden treasure for seekers to find! Yet that is what Cec Murphey does in Knowing God Knowing Myself, a book of sixty-eight original tweet-worthy quotes with an accompanying meditation that reflects on how a life situation or circumstance caused him to know God better.

    This book is an excellent chair-side book to pick up for a quiet moment of reflection and meditation. Cecil Murphey's simple and straight-forward manner results in well-written, to-the-point reading that men will especially enjoy.

    Out of a quest for a deeper knowledge of God and himself, Cec Murphey wrote Knowing God, Knowing Myself. In these 68 short chapters, Cec uses his wealth of knowledge and personal experiences to bring the reader closer to self-discovery and to God. Each chapter ends in an aphorism, a golden nugget for the reader to use to reflect upon his or her own life, to discover how to improve it, and to grow more Christ-like. For example: “We can always teach others and share the knowledge and understanding we've learned. We can also learn from those we teach.” And we can all learn valuable lessons from this special book. I highly recommend reading it slowly, perhaps as a daily devotional, and carefully digesting each chapter.

    Insightful book filled with wisdom

    My husband and I read this book slowly - one chapter per night. Each chapter was full of insight and wisdom, and caused us to think (and talk) about our life's journey. Cecil Murphey's honesty and transparency made the book refreshing and even challenging. Some of the stories brought tears, others laughter - all brought thought and examination. It's an excellent read, and I highly recommend it.

    Sometimes less is more. And in the case of Cecil Murphey's KNOWING GOD, KNOWING MYSELF: AN INVITATION TO DAILY DISCOVERY (Regal, 2010), fewer words mean abundant wisdom.

    Murphey, who has served authors such as Dr. Ben Carson (GIFTED HANDS) and Don Piper (90 MINUTES IN HEAVEN) as ghost- and collaborative writer, uses his writing skill and passion for spiritual exploration to present this poignant, personal offering. His dual commitment to know God and know himself underlies this sensitive collection of meditations. Each moves toward an aphorism (pithy statement of truth) gleaned from the wisdom of years as a Christ-follower.

    The author's distinctive voice shines through each brief (two to four pages) chapter. He uses only the most essential word-gems, polished until they gleam with truth. And his transparency about his spiritual shortcomings made it easier for me to contemplate my own.

    Murphey's aphorisms both pricked my spirit and pulled me closer to God. Statements such as "I am seldom angry about what I think I'm angry about" and "Many things grab our attention; fewer things grab our heart" left me nodding my head in agreement as tears rolled down my cheeks. I thank God--and Cecil Murphey--for this insightful book.
