5.0 out of 5 stars Prepare to have your faith challenged and life shaken! July 18, 1999
By A Customer
Format:HardcoverThis book is probably the most spirit filled and guided work I’ve read in a long time. You can not help but hear the voice of God calling you to a deeper relationship with Him as you read this amazing classic. From begining to end each page is an impassioned plea for the reader to abandon “comfortable Christianity” in order to truly know God as He desires to be known. You can see right away that truly Mr. Tozer wrote this book on his knees. I found myself challenged to look at my own faith in Christ and what I should be doing with that faith in every chapter. Sometimes with weeping and confessing and always compelled to deep times of prayer and renewel in God’s presence. The chapter entitled “The Blessedness of Possesing Nothing” should be required reading for anyone confessing Christ as their Lord. I was totally blown away and my life with Christ and my own pursuit of God has been forever enriched. I have read this book over and over and shared much of it with friends and family. If you are “stuck” in you walk with the Lord, let the Spirit of God use this book to shake you loose and move you onward and upward.

5.0 out of 5 stars A Book Saturated with God’s Presence! December 15, 1999
By Cameron B. Clark VINEā„¢ VOICE
Format:Hardcover|Amazon Verified PurchaseThis is one of a few books I’ve read that, upon reading it, actually manifested God’s presence. In line with the teaching of the book, God impressed upon me his love and his desire for a more intimate relationship. I broke into tears. Few books have had that impact. The chapter entitled “The Blessedness of Possessing Nothing” is a profound call to absolute simplicity and abandonment to God who owns everything you may think you “possess”, including yourself! Surrender it all to God and see what miracles will be wrought for His glory. Let God possess you! For those who want other recommendations, try “The Christian’s Secret to a Happy Life” by Hannah Whitall Smith, “A Testament of Devotion” by Thomas Kelly, “Abandonment to Divine Providence” by Jean-Pierre de Caussade, “The Practice of the Presence of God” by Brother Lawrence and, for those who want to experience God’s holiness in a powerful way, “The Holiness of God” by R.C. Sproul. – Brad Clark
5.0 out of 5 stars The Pursuit of God – made easier to know and practice. April 1, 2011
By Mike
Format:Kindle EditionDidn’t realize that when they called this book a classic they really meant it. Many ideas and also clear direction to a more full walk with God (which, I think, is what we all really want). For the believer, God’s “distance” is never the issue. It is only that we are to tune in to Him and the reassurance of His already immediate presence is known and felt by us. The idea of God’s Throne in one’s life (and there is room only for One on the throne at any time) is simplified. Yes, we want to walk with God. But remember it is He who reaches out to us before we can know Him in the first place. No wonder this book is so highly regarded

Fantastic Bible Study September 4, 2005
By Colleen
Format:PaperbackI begame a Beth Moore groupie with her first Bible Study on the Old Testiment Tabernacle and have followed her with each successive study that she has written. I’ve also traveled to see her speak, and gone to a similcast or two. That’s the kind of lady she is. If you read her, you’ll love her too, and be trying your best to keep up with her.

This study did not, at the time it was released, have videos to accompany it, so I consequently passed it over and moved on to the next one. I think it’s been more than a year now that Beth finally put videos to this study and made it available as an online study. I completed it last year. It is excellent, as is all her stuff.

I recommend it HIGHLY for the working woman, like me, who hardly has the time to get the laundry done or bills paid on time. You can do each lesson at whatever pace you want and when you have finally completed it then you can log on and watch the video. It took me about 8 months to complete this 10-week study at my own pace. Although I missed the fellowship of the ladies in sharing our stories and meeting in person, it was still very rewarding to have spent the time in God’s word. I still benefited from THAT immensely.

You can’t do a Beth Moore study without growing closer to Jesus and wanting to have the relationship with HIM that Beth has with HIM. She actually has two available online, this one and BELIEVING GOD.
