Moody Publishers By Searching

Isobel Miller gave up God for worldly pursuits. But as graduation approached and her engagement was broken, she questioned that decision. "If You will prove to me that You are, and if You will give me peace, I will give You my whole life." God heard Isobel's prayers. He reached out to her, ending years of searching. Her response was to dedicate her life, along with her husband, to missionary service in China.

A friend recommend this book to me years ago. I have finally gotten around to reading it and have found that Isobel Kuhn is a new favorite of mine. I would highly recommend this book to others. In this book, Isobel Kuhn tells of her journey to faith in Christ and the struggles that she encountered along the way. The book ends with her leaving to go to China as a missionary.

Excellent book, very well written, stirred me up in my own faith. Bought a 2nd copy to give to a friend who is searching for something, but is cynical toward the Christian faith...

Recently read Green Leaf in Drought By Isobel and knew I wanted to read up on her. There was no disappointment in this little book. "You will find Me when you search for Me with your whole heart." She searched and she found. "By Searching" is so much better than fiction!

"By Searching" is an excellent memoir of Isobel Miller Kuhn's early adult years. The premis is that three possible paths exist: the high road, the misty flats, and the low road. MRs. Kuhn's story is how she found herself on the misty flats and gradually approached the low road. In a series of events, she recounts how God set her on the high road and led her on the path of becoming a missionary in China, a wife, and a mother.The The quality of the story is entrancing and her skill in writing it is compelling.

This is a great book about and by Isobel Kuhn, describing her struggle with Faith and finding Christ. The books starts off, when she get's confronted by her professor stating that her beliefs are merely a result of her parents. She becomes agnostic. But eventually starts searching for God and finds Him. Easy to read highly recommended!

Isobel's searching for Truth and then searching for God's will is reflected in this book. She tells of the rocky roads, the plains of doubt that she experienced and the joy in seeing the Lord work in her life. She saw God move through prayer alone. This book ends shortly after her arrival in China.
