We often live our lives by setting goals, taking advantage of opportunities that come our way, even following dreams that would fulfill our "ego needs." But Joseph Castleberry says that each of us has a deeper dream, one that takes us beyond ourselves and places us at the heart of God's will for us. It is a deeper dream that enables us to transcend our own self-concern and wade into the bigger stream of God's kingdom and his work in other people's lives. Only the pursuit of this deeper dream can truly fulfill us, says the author. As you read, Your Deepest Dream, not only will you gain insights to discover your deepest dream, bur you will learn how to get past barriers that are keeping you from fulfillment. Finally, you will gain skills for leading others to success in making their dream come true.
