Noise and words and frenzied, hectic schedules dull our senses, closing our ears to His still, small voice and making us numb to His touch.
Charles Swindoll offers all new insights from his own journal to guide people on a journey of intimacy with God. This keepsake book includes pages in Swindoll's handwriting collected in an embossed, antique-looking cover.

A few months ago, I was sharing a rushed dinner with some friends and complained that my life had become one hurried blur. Too much going on, not enough down time, and, most disconcerting for this Christian, I was reeling from a lack of quality time with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ. One of my friends recommended I read 'Intimacy with the Almighty.' Later that evening I logged onto Amazon.com and purchased a copy. A few days later, while I was on the verge of a 'Tyranny of the Urgent' induced meltdown, this gem arrived in the mail.
Thanks be to God. This essay is a quick read -- but packs the most punch you can imagine from a tiny 80 or so page book. Read it and see what a fantastic, simple-to-follow (but beautifully written) blueprint for spiritual growth Chuck Swindoll lays out.

He introduces some disciplines which we would all do well to practice, but doesn't really talk about the "how." In other words, and at the risk of sounding flippant, my reaction on finishing this book (about a one-hour undertaking) was: "Tell...
Satan has a unique strategy for every culture. In North America today he has chosen the rat race. Keep Christians too busy doing good things that they forget Who they are doing them for! This little book helps us get back on track. Slow down, find time to be alone with God in a quiet place. Journal your thoughts. Then surrender! I have purchased several copies and given them to leaders in our church. Thank you Chuck!
