Is there something missing in your life? Do you long to be closer to God? At some point in our lives, many of us have the desire to become more intimate with God. The process of drawing nearer to the Creator, however, can be rife with confusion and uncertainty. In this refreshingly candid and clear study, author Steve Korch does not claim to know all of the answers, but he does offer his help in demystifying the process. Formed over several years of reflection and experience with this topic, these insights will provide you with tangible reference points for evaluating and building a more intimate relationship with God.

About the author (2000)

Born in 1950, Steve is from the heart of the "Boomer" generation. His parents divorced within a few months after his birth and his father returned to his homeland of Sweden. Steve's mother remarried soon after that. He has one brother and one sister by his step-father. Steve has two more brothers and two additional sisters living in Sweden. Steve grew up in California, most of those years in the Santa Cruz area. Steve was raised in a fairly common, middle-class home. He was never much of a student. Surfing played a big role in his life during high school years. After a disastrous first semester of college, Steve joined the Army. It was at this point that he came to grips with the Gospel, and received Jesus Christ as his Savior. His military experience also included a year as a co-pilot in Vietnam. Back as a civilian, Steve returned to college, receiving a B.A. in history from Biola University and an MDiv. from Western Seminary. In 1971, Steve met the most beautiful girl in the world and married her the following year. They have enjoyed thirty-eight wonderful years of marriage. Ruthie is a professional artist and art teacher. They have three children and five grandchildren. Steve has served as the lead pastor of three West Coast churches. Along with his 20 years of pastoral experience, Steve also served as an ER chaplain. Steve has had the privilege of traveling to Sweden, Vietnam, Israel, Mexico, Siberia, Yucatan, the northern Philippines, Cebu, the British Isles, and parts of Europe. He is experienced as a tour guide and a missions team leader. He is a full-time professor and Director of Pastoral Training for the San Jose campus of Western Seminary. Steve teaches courses on applied theology and communication skills. Steve enjoys exercise in the form of running, biking and surfing (hey, he lives in Santa Cruz). Steve plays guitar, but can't sing to save his life. His first book, My Soul Thirsts, an invitation to intimacy with God, has made a powerful impact in thousands of lives. Other books in progress included Coming to Your Senses, and The Legionnaire's Son. Steve is a creative spiritual leader as well as a gifted speaker and teacher.
