Item description for God Is Closer Than You Think Large Print by John Ortberg...
Overview The Bible is filled with examples of an intimate God, a God keenly interested in connecting with ordinary people. He promises to be with us. He says He will personally guide us. Yet somehow, intimacy with God eludes us. Caught up in the mainstream of life, we know we're missing something vital. But how do we attain it? God Is Closer Than You Think shows how you can enjoy a vibrant, moment-by-moment relationship with your heavenly Father.

Reviews - What do customers think about God Is Closer Than You Think Large Print?
Excellent Read! Nov 3, 2008
This was my first time reading John Ortberg and I really enjoyed and learned useful techniques to apply in daily life. The author has a good sense of humor and reminds of Max Lucado. I will be reading more books by John Ortberg.
Another Ortberg Treasure Sep 9, 2008
Each chapter holds special insights, inspiration, and application. Each with a twist of Ortberg's zany humor. I use this kind of book for daily devotional reading - sometimes only half a chapter just to savor it and let it soak into my life.
Challenge to become more aware of God and His wishes Jun 24, 2008
God is closer than you think! I read this in conjunction with the video study series in our home bible study group. The challenge is to become aware of his presence and learn to do as he wishes.

Book will change your perspective on your circumstances. May 18, 2008
This book is well written, easy to understand and apply to your life now. It's so good it's worth being read more than once. The other thing I discovered is that when applying what you have read your behavior is changed and you are renewed no matter what you are experiencing.
A Challenge to see God in all I do! Mar 10, 2008
I put off reading this book for a while, but when I got my Kindle this was one of the first that I purchased for it. I can only say that I wish I had read it sooner.
I appreciate the challenge that John gives us to keep God in the forefront of all that we do. I know this may sound difficult, but I believe that as he states with practice it becomes easier.
I have found that you can't just read this book, you have to put it into action in your life. If you do I believe you will be amazed at how much more you see God in all that you do daily.
Thank you John for the challenge to sit at the feet of Jesus and learn!
