I started off a little skeptical on this one. I have read books before on getting closer to God. They usually are full of legalistic ideas that you can do to achieve this. It was refreshing when right out of the gate Gene admits that he is not a spiritual person. It came across that this guys has been where I am and understands. It wasn’t a bunch of things that we can do to achieve the closeness we are supposed to have, it was a way to create a longing or a passion to spend time with Him.
The chapters are really short. Which helps with my short attention span. It is a very easy read that you look forward to reading. It starts off really simple and then progresses deeper. So don’t stop reading it if it seems to simple. Keep going and it will catch you where you are at. There is also a group study guide and a personal study guide in the back of the book.
This is a book I am going to recommend to a few people I know. We all long to walk a little closer with God. Get started by picking up a copy of this book.
I received this book for free from WaterBrook Multnomah Publishing Group for this review”.
