Living Close to God (When You’re Not Good at It) is a very interesting and challenging book. This book would be a great book for a devotional. I tried to read it straight through and found it difficult. The reader needs to take time to digest the author’s suggestions. The author is obviously passionate about the topic and his experiences. The reader also needs to take the time to experience the Word as the author experienced it. Using the book in this manner would make the book most useful. I agree with the plea at the end of the book to read it again. I think that one could learn a lot from this book by reading it multiple times. This book is more about your spiritual growth than finishing a book and putting it on the shelf.
