A Must Listen to Christian Classic

I read this book many years ago and it helped me to grow closer to God. I am definitely enjoying much more the audio version while I walk in the park to enjoy God’s love and presence. This is a book you can listen to over and over - just listen to a conversation each day and meditate on it during the day.

Excellent narration by Robert Lograsso.

I received this audio-book free for an honest review by the author, narrator, or publisher. Thank you!!!

As good as I remember!

Absolutely essential devotional listening. If this doesn't kindle a fire in your soul and a longing to know your Creator better and His Son Jesus, you probably need to listen to it twice!

His points on not letting your failures make you gunshy to approach God again straightway is super helpful. God doesn't put you on probation every time you screw up! You can run right back into His presence and know that He is right there where you left Him. So far from emboldening the struggling immature Christian to continue in sin, this is the surest remedy to shortcut the wallowing in it!

He also has a nice section about throwing up short prayers throughout the day just to maintain the connection with the Father.

This book is soooo helpful. And the narrator does a fantastic job.

I was given this free review copy audiobook at my request and have voluntarily left this review.

Great reading. Well done.

I enjoyed the book as a read, but the narrator brought it home. I hope to hear more of him, and Brother Lawrence.

Beautiful collection of devotional thoughts

I had to force myself to focus on this one. I kept getting distracted. When I did focus, however, I enjoyed this very much and found it helpful in centering me upon Christ.

I was provided a free reviewer's copy of this audiobook in exchange for an honest review.

A good meaningful listen

A good book to realize the presence of God in your life. I must confess I will have to listen to this again and probably again after that. I would probably do better to read this myself. Not that the narration isn't great (because the narration is very good) but that I feel I would get more out of it if I am able to concentrate more on reading than listening while I am doing something else. Perhaps I should take a nature walk by myself and listen? At any rate, this is helpful to bring me closer to God and feel his presence in my life. I will surely listen to this again when I am able to get away from outside distractions to allow myself to feel it.
