Publisher's Summary

God longs to call you friend.

Are you missing the essentials to living a joyful, purpose-filled life? Are you devoted to your church or your religion but still struggling to find meaning and passion in your faith? Do you love your family, work hard, contribute to your community, but still feel your life is somehow incomplete and hollow at the core? Are you restless in your spirit, with a nagging sense that there must be something more?

Gifted Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, has known this struggle herself. As she studied Scripture looking for a way out of the emptiness, she found her answer in the amazing story of Abraham, a very ordinary man who became extraordinary for one pivotal reason: he pursued God in a life of obedient faith, not knowing where that decision would take him.

Despite struggling, as we do, with compromise, fear, family, quarrels, failure, doubt, and disappointment, Abraham became a man God called His friend.

Anne followed Abraham’s lead and began a lifelong pursuit of knowing God, as he truly is, in an intensely personal relationship. Through personal anecdotes, unforgettable stories, and God-inspired insights, she invites you to draw closer to God, who is as committed to you as he was to Abraham and longs to call you friend.

    "Powerful and convicting"

    This audio was very powerful and convicting as Lotz outlines what one REALLY needs to do to truly have a fulfilling relationship with Jesus. We must give up everything, and Lotz gives many examples to what exactly that means. Very helpful and thought provoking.

    "A Road to the God-Filled Life"

    This book was one of the best books I have ever heard. The words Anne wrote will help me to return to the narrow road that I had slipped off. Self led many days, not Christ. I was truly blessed by the life of Abraham and Sarah and the way God led them and the lessons I learned through Genesis.
