Reviews - What do customers think about Experiencing God Youth Edition Workbook (Limited Ed)?
Best Bible study ever Feb 15, 2010
I have done the adult version of Experiencing three times in my life. This time I am going through this version with my two children (ages 12 and 15). It is a wonderful way to get your teens to know how to relate to God, how to recognize and hear His voice, and how to join Him in His work instead of co-opting Him to join them in theirs.
Experiencing Assumptions Dec 31, 2008
While many Christians today will be surprised to hear this, the very idea that God has a personal will for your life separate from His Sovereign or His Moral will is not uncontested. Blackaby simply assumes that his readers already agree with this view without giving any evidence for it (nor even bothering to state it). This assumption has gone unnoticed by most Christians, for this view of God's will is prevalent among evangelical churches. But the fact is that the idea of God having an individual will for every believer that can be known in advance may not be true. Blackaby's further assumptions (such as God's means of communication) are themselves based on this questionable premise. This opens the door for questioning not only Blackaby's methodology, but the most fundamental aspect of his teaching.
Further, "Experienceing God" promotes a dangerous view of God's methods (does God speak today like He spoke then? And to whom?); a dangerous view of the Christian Life (does the Bible always portray the believer's life like Moses' or Abraham's?); a dangerous view of Scripture (are only parts of the Bible God's word for us?); and a dangerous view of Christ - (did Christ have crisis of faith or make major adjustments for the Father?). These are all expanded upon here: [..] In light of the very questionable and unsupported assumptions Blackaby relies on for his whole system, the objectively false philosophy he espouses, the confusing and sometimes contradictory methodology he supports, the dangerous consequences that many of his principles could lead to, and the impossibly subjective and circular means of verification that the system is tested by, it is my conclusion that Experiencing God should not be taught as a means for discovering God's will today (although it would be useful as a resource for learning how God spoke to unique men and women in Biblical times in order that they might fulfill their truly "God sized" assignments).
The New Testament does not teach that Christians must try to figure out where God is at work around them so that they can join Him. We already know God's will for us in this regard, we already have our "marching orders":
* Preach the gospel (2 Timothy 4:2) * Defend the faith (1 Peter 3:15) * Disciple the nations ( Matthew 28:19-20)
God is at work wherever we are - what are we waiting for?
A milestone in my walk with God Aug 17, 2000
Experiencing God totally transformed the way I thought about God, how He communicates to us and uses us, and how I need to respond to Him. I first went through this book in high school, and I am now about to go through it again with a friend who needs spiritual growth. I highly recommend this book to anyone who is serious about growing closer to God and living for Him. It does take some time to do the daily study, but it is extremely well worth it. God will reveal Himself and His ways through this study, and you will be able to know Him and to understand his purposes. This is one of the best studies I've ever done, definitely a milestone in my walk with God. And it is simple enough for anyone to understand, yet it presents spiritual truths that will challenge you.
Something everyone should use Aug 12, 1999
I have used this workbook twice, once with the youth staff at my church, and once with a high school guys' small group. I am convinced it is the best study book I have ever used. This book will transform how you view your relationship with God and bring you closer to Him.
Awesome stuff!!! Jan 8, 1999
I did a full study of the workbook for a youth discipleship class, and all I can say is I would most highly recommend it for individuals wanting to get closer to God, as well as for youth discipleship groups. It's easy reading, with cool illustrations, it's challenging and relevant to today's youth focuses...
