Publisher's Summary

If you or someone close to you is devoted to their church but still struggles to find meaning and passion in their faith; who loves their family, works hard, contributes to their community, but still feels life is somehow incomplete and hollow at the core; who is restless in spirit, with a nagging sense that there must be something more...there is The Magnificent Obsession.

Gifted Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, has known these struggles 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. 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".

CONVICTING - A GREAT READ

I listened to this on Audible. I re-listened to portions I knew that spoke to my heart and spirit, prayed on the things I journaled, and then bought the book to have as reference - that's how it impacted me.

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.

Authentic and inspiring!

Every chapter specifically ministered to me during a challenging season. I became more hungry for more time with my Savior, just when I thought I have reached the ultimate obsession, I realized I still had a magnificent obsession still available to me. Excellent book, Anne's voice was a delight, I felt like we were sitting down together having a cup of coffee.

Heart changing.

I have listened to this book twice and plan on listening to it over and over. So much to glean.
I am grateful Anne read the book herself. I don't believe another narrator would have been able to express what Anne is conveying because Anne is doing what we are all called to do - and that is to love the Lord our God with all our heart, soul, mind, and strength.
I am hopeful that I, too, can come to know and love Jesus Christ as my Magnificent Obsession.

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.

Less of me and MORE of HIM in my life.

Timely. Open honest humbly stated conversation calling all Christians to examine their walk with the Lord.
