One day, as you're traveling down your life's road, you'll encounter your Creator. Chances are, you have already encountered Him, possibly many times, but did not realize it. Or maybe you did realize it and chose to turn the other way. But this time, He will get your attention. You will "hear" Him calling you. You will feel the cry of your soul in response. And you will recognize the pull of God-consciousness on your self-consciousness. What do you do?

Since everybody is different, your encounter with the Creator will be orchestrated especially for you. But at the same time, everybody's life experiences will follow the same model. Encounter proposes that how you interpret your experiences in life determines to a large degree whether or not you will see God's model of the perfected man in yourself.

Once you meet Him, God is easy to fall in love with. The hard part is being "remade" in His likeness. Encounter describes this "make-over," this transformation process, so you will be able to follow it in your own life. The author suggests new ways of considering and understanding past and current events, and explains the forces at work and play within the human psyche. To help you through this trying and sometimes painful process, the Creator has given you a two-edged Sword of Forgiveness and Faith to release you from guilt and fear, Gloves of Compassion and Gratitude to resolve painful memories, and a Plow of Wisdom and Discernment to uproot misconceptions and allow the seed of truth to take hold in your heart and mind. Encounter describes the function of each in detail and provides easy-to-follow instructions for their use.

The Creator is the guiding force behind the transformation process. He created Universal Law to guide you and Divine Love to empower you. Your part is to love Him with all your heart and walk in His way. This means gradually relinquishing your Free Will and surrendering to God's Will... not an easy task for the only creature on Earth with the power to say No to God! Indeed, free will is powerful, but, as argued in Encounter, free will is not free: we pay dearly for it.

Encounter introduces man's Lower Self and Higher Self, describes the beauty of Universal Law, talk's about man's God qualities, his childlike nature, his innocence, and his reason for being here. The book states that we can all have a one-on-one relationship with our Father God and reveals how you should react when you encounter your Creator.

Expect some surprises along the way.

Gayle Allen Goree was born in Alabama during the great depression. Her parents were good, hard-working people who taught her morals and ethics and instilled in her a love for God. Her childhood mentor was her beloved grandmother who patiently answered Gayle's philosphic and religious questions. In the process, she awakened in Gayle a desire for spiritual knowledge.

When she was fifteen, Gayle's father died and the family relocated to Florida. She married at eighteen, raised two beautiful daughters, and worked with her husband in direct mail advertising. During this period, Gayle was heavily involved in the Presbyterian church, serving various positions, including deaconess. Later, Gayle joined the Catholic church, serving there as a member of the Parish Council.

The hunger of spiritual knowledge was always in Gayle's awareness, but in the early sixties she had a spiritual experience that brought her quest to the forefront of her consciousness and she began to study.

Among the first selection of books Gayle bought was the newly released The Christian Agnostic by Leslie Weatherhead, a renowned English churchman and author. The subjects in Dr. Weatherhead's book offered new and exciting avenues of thought to Gayle. Her inquiry deepened, taking her from theology and Christian history to the eastern religions, metaphysics, philosophy, and psychology. Her formal study was through Eckerd College in St. Petersburg, FL and Wright State University and the University of Dayton in Dayton, OH.

Encounter with the Creator is the fruit of Gayle's intellectual pursuit plus ten years of experience- experience proving the truth of each given postulate by incorporating its underlying principle into her life. She says, "I went through the transformation process and am intimately, acquainted with guilt and forgiveness, fear and faith, selfishness and self-aggrandizement. What I learned about the process does not belong to me alone, but to any and everyone who chooses to follow the Path to his or her Place of Knowing. All paths are different, but each one is the same. It helps.
