It's hard to want something you don't know you are missing. Sadly, many believers have never experienced true intimacy with God because they don't understand what it is or how to achieve it. But we humans were created for intimate fellowship with God, and this has always been His deepest desire. Scripture clearly states that the Lord yearns for us and seeks those who pursue Him. Yet we must come to Jesus on His terms-not our own.
In Drawing Near, John Bevere invites readers to explore a life of intimacy with God. Emphasizing the need for obedience, he urges us to practice-just as we would practice anything we hope to improve-our communication with the Holy Spirit. Understanding that prayer is a dialogue, not a monologue, Bevere encourages us to listen at the Father's feet. Study questions in each chapter offer opportunity for reflection, and a "How to draw near to God" section offers practical steps toward developing true intimacy with Him.

Bevere, host of the weekly television program The Messenger, offers keen biblical insights in this spirituality book about enjoying true intimacy with God. God, writes Bevere, longs to have intimate communion with each of his children and has taken great pains throughout history to establish relationships with individual people. Drawing upon numerous biblical stories, many of which are relatively obscure tales from the Old Testament, Bevere displays a rare talent for detailed scrutiny of the text. Readers will be startled by some of his fresh, perceptive observations about various biblical passages, or the attention he gives to certain glossed-over details. The writing is not exceptional, but the prose is straightforward and conversational, as though Bevere were sitting down to a small Bible study with a few friends.
