Book Review | Experiencing God

experiencing god book reviewTopping the bestseller list today is “Experiencing God,” a fabulous book by Richard and Henry Blackaby and Claude King! The Experiencing God ministry is even more vibrant today than when it began. As it continues to rise, and the world continues to change, the Experiencing God book has been revised and expanded with more than seventy percent of its material newly written. A modern classic that has sold millions of copies worldwide, Experiencing God is based on seven Scriptural realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator. By understanding how God is working through us even as we try to fathom His ways, we can begin to clearly know and do His will and discover our lives greatly and gracefully changed.

This bestseller book has almost 600 Amazon customer reviews, with 92% in the top rating categories! There are 31 chapters in the book, so if you read a chapter per night you’ll finish the book in one month.

I’ve read this book a few times now and each time I discern a new concept. It’s focus is on relationship with the Lord, how God speaks, and joining God where He is working. Every page is filled with a powerful message! At the Womens Bible Cafe, we’ve facilitated a Bible study version of this book several times.
