I love john bevere and read many of his books as well as his wife's. However, some of his views I disagree with. I read an article for a magazine where he wrote that we cannot pray Gods will without speaking in His tongue. I do not agree with this.
The book felt like a to do list rather than focusing on seeking Him. John wrote that fear of God is what keeps us from sinning, contrary to what Jesus said while on earth, but only quoted Old Testament. I feel like on this topic he made points then found verses that backed them up rather than the other way around. He would touch on a great topic then cut it short and move on, which was disappointing. I stopped reading the book 2/3 of the way in despite how long I've been pining over it before purchasing.
I purchased this book because I wanted to do exactly what it said "Develop a Life of Intimacy with God" and it has provided me with sound teaching, perspective and understanding to help me do that very thing and above that. This book has been a blessing to my prayer life, has helped me to understand the reverential fear of the Lord and what worship truly is, and has increased my faith and my trust in God.
By the time I got to half way through the book, especially after reading the chapter on what hinder's intimacy with God, I had to stop and send a "Thank You" message to the author on Facebook telling him Thanks for writing this book and the impact it was having on me.
I am still reading the book but already, it has challenged me and called to come up higher in my walk with Christ. One of the most eye opening teachings he covers and of course backs everything up with scripture, is obedience out of delight vs. obedience out of restriction. With John Bevere's...
This is the best and what I would consider the most essential spiritual book I have ever read (not including the Bible). It spells out the incredible amount of love God has for each and every one of us, and what He has done to pursue us and make it possible to draw near to Him. The invitation is mind boggling. Even if you know the basics of Christianity, getting this intense Biblical breakdown is so good for the soul. I have recommended this book to tons of people and they are all doing the same. Definitely read it!
