In this new book, Cynthia Heald takes women deep into the Word to explore God's relentless, passionate pursuit of those He Loves. She begins with God's question to Adam and Eve, "Where are you?" and ends with Jesus offer, "I stand at the door and knock." In between she leads her readers into listening and responding to the words with which God earnestly seeks the hearts of His loved ones. With strong Bible teaching, compelling insights, and personal stories, Cynthia helps women understand that these words are evidence of the Lord's great love -- designed to lead them out of the trees into freedom, out of guilt into forgiveness, out of darkness into His light. Whether you are in hiding from God and others or ready to go deeper into your faith and relationships, In the Secret Place of the Most High will help you answer God's loving call, "Where are you?"

Cynthia Heald is an author and speaker best known to women through her bestselling Bible study series. She and her husband, Jack, are on full-time staff with The Navigators. Heald is a guest speaker at the Women of Faith conferences and is a frequent leader of women's retreats.From Publishers Weekly:
Heald's devotional is fairly reminiscent of Jerry Bridge's recent title, I Exalt You, O God, which exhorts Christians to divine adoration, though Heald's work focuses more on inviting Christian followers to richer intimacy with God. Heald's reputation for producing meaty, high-quality Bible studies for women precedes her as she centers on the subject of knowing the God who hungers for a relationship with his children. Heald (Becoming a Woman of Excellence; Becoming a Woman of Faith) opens with a one-page dialogue between "the Father and the child," which ends with God urging the child to continue along the path toward divine companionship. This prayerful dialogue provides a rough structure for the devotionals that follow, as Heald uses familiar Bible verses as the foundation for 28 meditations. She skillfully and compassionately explores topics such as forgiveness, holiness, discipline, comfort, peer pressure and justice. Each devotion includes a pertinent Scripture verse, an illustration, a biblical perspective on applying these life lessons and poignant quotes. The only flaw in these reflective mini-epistles is the simplistic, single-sentence prayers that follow. (One reads merely, "Dear Lord, may You always be my first love. Amen.") Lengthier, more in-depth prayers appended to Heald's messages would have added a better balance to her substantial devotionals. Overall, however, Heald's fans will come away with a fuller understanding of how God relentlessly pursues his people.
