Walking With God

If your like me, a fan of John Eldredge, as soon as his new book Walking With God was released, you were either on the internet, or in your favorite local bookstore ready to pick up a copy. I've often wondered what it would be like to spend a day, a week, or a month with Eldredge. Canoing the waters of the wild west, leading a cattle drive like the cowboys of yesteryear, or hunting wild elk. His books stir in my soul a yearning for the beauty of God's creation, and a longing to walk with God in deep relationship.

This book represents a unique look into the journal entries of Eldredge over the period of a year. There are no chapter divisions, simply a catalog of the seasons as they come and go. Eldredge invites us to walk with God over the course of a year with him, through the good times, the bad times, and the strange times that life offers up to us.

This book will stir your heart, and challenge your mind. It's narrative is inviting and easy to read, you feel as though you are in deep conversation with a close friend. Eldredge has the ability to share with you his life in an authentic manner without pretense. Eldredge will challenge you to view every event in your life as spiritual, from the moment you wake, until you lay your head on the pillow at night, God is intimately involved in a relationship with you.

Eldredge challenges our assumptions about spirituality, and our view of God in a non threatening way. This book has the ability to stir the deep desires of our hearts, challenge our faulty views of God, and spur us onto living in deeper relationship with God, all in a unique narrative approach.

This book will be a great help to anyone seeking a deeper relationship with God.
