Today you can see God in action. Today you can hear God speaking to you. Today you can connect with God heart-to-heart. Today!
Intimacy with God can happen right now – a closeness you can feel, a reality you can experience for yourself.

God Is Closer Than You Think
Six Sessions on Experiencing the Presence of God
The story of the Bible is the story of God's desire to be with people. God is extending himself,
stretching out to reach us, to fill our lives with his presence. Every moment of your life is like a page
in a Where's Waldo? book. God is there, the Scriptures tell us--on every one of them. But the
ease with which he may be found varies from one page to the next.
In this six-session Zondervan Groupwareâ„¢ video curriculum, award-winning author John Ortberg
serves as guide and interpretive leader for experiencing the presence of God in everyday life. With
his engaging and humorous style, Ortberg transforms our view of God's presence from one that
may seem hidden or distant to one that is closer than you think.
The curriculum kit is designed for churches to use as a spiritual growth campaign. It includes a six-session
small group participant's guide, a six-session DVD (with a thirty-two-page leader's guide)
featuring John Ortberg teaching, a CD-ROM (with sermon resources and promotional materials),
and one copy of the hardcover book.
The participant's guide, Small Group Edition DVD, and book are also sold separately.
