About this title
We know that Jesus is supposed to be the vital center of our lives. But until we make sure that He is, life will always leave us feeling unfulfilled. Discover why intimacy with God isn't just the hallmark of overachieving believers, but the mostFrom Publishers Weekly:
Believing that we have left our first love, God, and feel an emptiness in our lives, Stowell urges us back into an intimate relationship with God. Stowell uses Bible stories like Adam and Eve's choosing to disobey God and the prodigal son's choosing to leave his father with inheritance in hand to illustrate humanity's disposition to leave in search of knowledge and autonomy. He uses these examples, also, to point out the ways that God continues to seek out these lost souls and pursue them with love. Stowell draws upon interviews with noted Christian personalities like Adrian Rogers, Bill Bright and Joni Eareckson Tada as he reveals these Christians' struggles in their search for intimacy with God. Finally, Stowell shares his own search for this intimacy by noting, "I love the fact that Christ pursues intimacy with me.... I am ashamed of my self-sufficiency. And I love the fact that He is still knocking, still keeps pursuing." Stowell's book is not chock-full of steps to follow to achieve greater intimacy with God. Rather, this book is an introduction to, and a rather simple overview of, a facet of the Christian life that Stowell believes is fundamental to Christian spirituality.
