Does the idea of intimacy with God seem farfetched and irrelevant to your real, daily life? Ever wonder if your own “little story” has any significance in the larger scheme of things, or why God’s Word doesn’t seem to speak to you? In Close Enough to Hear God Breathe, listeners will encounter a rich message that recounts the story of a God who has been inviting all of humanity, and each individual, into his tender embrace since time began. Beautiful prose, powerful stories, and inventive teaching walk listeners though this, the Bible’s foremost narrative thread.
Both subtle and radical, full of common stories told in extraordinary fashion, this book weaves the experiences of the individual into the great tapestry of the biblical saga. The listener will learns to hear the voice of God speaking in the ordinary events and relationships of life, as well as in the broad, deep current of Scripture. Reading the Bible ought to be like putting one’s head on God’s chest. Close Enough to Hear God Breathe will help listeners do just that. And when they do, they’ll hear him whisper, "You’re my child, my love, my pleasure."
The title is very good and the author uses many examples from his family life to illustrate how we can get closer to God. But then I am not sure if I like to hear all the time what is children did when they were younger, I was looking for little bit more solid teaching. The author seems to like telling stories and I am sure many listeners like them, but this time it did not attract me so much.
This book wasn’t for you, but who do you think might enjoy it more?
this book was not able to keep my attention, to much babbling between getting to the point of each chapter.
