I consider myself to be a “seeker”; but in reality I’m more of a “waiter,” that is, I’m waiting on God to make the move and do all the work. Author David Edwards writes for those who wait and wrestle with the hopes of experiencing God’s presence; but he shifts the question from, “Where are You, God?” to, “What am I doing to find God?”
Edwards writes from the personal experience of his own journey. Artfully illustrated, he leads the reader through 10 rather ordinary, easily workable approaches drawing from the lives of biblical characters about how they experienced God’s presence. This is not a book of heavy, excruciating spiritual disciplines but rather 10 “seekerfriendly,” proactive techniques for those who truly hunger and thirst to experience God’s presence.
