Reviews - What do customers think about Christian Meditation: Experiencing the Presence of God?

Spiritual High  Mar 7, 2008
As one who seeks a closer relationship with God, just by reading the excerpts and exploring the book has put me on a spiritual high. That alone has kindled my interest and motivated me to purchase the book. No doubt, this material carries an anointing that cannot be reached by the ego alone. The writings in this book has the propensity to make my heart sing without a doubt.
 
PROFOUND, THOUGHT PROVOKING, AND AT TIMES HUMOROUS.  Sep 2, 2007
A VERY POWERFUL INTRODUCTION TO MEDITATION. FINLEY REALIZES THE HUMAN HEART, WHICH YOU'D HAVE TO UNDERSTAND IN ORDER TO WRITE SUCH A WORK. SO GLAD I READ THIS BOOK. I CAN OPEN THE BOOK TO ANY PAGE, AND IT'S LIKE I'M READING IT FOR THE FIRST TIME.
 
Descriptive beyond Christian Experience  Mar 31, 2007
Finley does a wonderous job of explaining the silence and its relationship to God or a God. His take on the comtemplative path is thoroughly explained in surprising detail. My leanings are Buddhist, but this is the best and most detailed explaination of the meditative process that I have ever heard. For those new to meditation as well as very experienced ones of all faiths.
 
Christian Meditation: Experiencing the Presence of God  Mar 22, 2006
A good book to introduce those with little or no theological background to the principles and practice of Christian meditation. I found it very helpful, as one with considerable theological training, in getting back to the basics of spiritual practices.
 
Reads like an audio script....  Mar 8, 2006
This book wasn't bad, and it was nice having a meditation source with a Christian feel. Mr. Finley writes in a very relaxing mode, and really pounds in the basics; sitting, silence, release thoughts, etc..
If your familiar with meditation, not much new here. If your new to meditation, it would be a good starting point.
Again, Mr. Finley writes in a peaceful and calm way, very friendly, but don't get too relaxed or you might miss some points.
