A good soul edifying book Apr 9, 2008
As a Christian book reader, I recommend this for uplifting, and learning. We can't ever learn too much!
Real Christianity Mar 6, 2008
Theology is often seen as abstract. This book nails it down to everyday life! Do you want real satisfaction in God? This will lead you into the truths of the Bible.
Have peace in your life with this book Apr 8, 2007
This book can complete your life. I have always struggled with my significance in life and this book completed my life by letting me know I already had significance by Christ's death. I now have peace in my life knowing how I am significant by no power of my own, but am just as significant and equal as a human being through Christ's death. What a peace this book gave me.

It isn't worth your time. Feb 21, 2006
"The Search for Significance" by Robert McGee is a book that esteems self-esteem, but in a less fashionable style than "The Purpose Driven Life." I do not recommend it. It will not change your life. Buy Lewis' "The Four Loves" and "Mere Christianity" instead.
See Yourself As God Sees You! Jun 26, 2004
McGee has written an excellent book (contrary to what some reviewers say) about obtaining significance in life through Jesus Christ (what He did for us and Who He is) instead of through our fleshly effort and the fickle approval of others.
Among the points McGee covers in the book include:
1. The abundant life does not mean a problem-free life. 2. Our worth is based on what God says about us and what Jesus Christ did for us, not our performance or the opinions of others. 3. God wants to be the Lord of our lives and He is unwilling to share that Lordship with anyone or anything. 4. Express your hurt and anger to God first before going to other people (the Psalmnist often did this). 5. The worries of this world are the main culprit in hindering our spiritual growth. 6. Christ, not self-improvement, is to be the goal. 7. God is not obligated to bless us, but does what is best for His honor and our growth. 8. 5 ways to use God's affirmation as an offensive weapon for changing our lives.
Yes, despite the pain and pressure in our lives, we can and do have a hope in Jesus Christ!
Read the book and be encouraged to focus on Jesus instead of yourself or others, to get your self-worth and significance.
