Item description for Seeing God: Twelve Reliable Signs of True Spirituality by Gerald McDermott & Michael Kramer...

Overview
TV evangelist scandals. More varieties of Christianity that Baskin-Robbins has flavors. These are times of pluralism and disenchantment with organized religion. How do Christians today know which leaders and companions in faith to trust? For help, Gerald McDermott returns to the work of Jonathon Edwards, the eighteenth century preacher and college president widely regarded as the greatest American theologian ever. Edwards wrestled expertly with similar questions arising from frontier revivalism. Now McDermott, not only a leading Edwards scholar but also a master teacher, makes Edward's insights accessible and practical for today's Christians. Seeing God offers a clarifying glimpse at the signs of genuine Christianity- yesterday, today and for the ages.

Review: ?The joyful, God-centered theology that undergirds this book provides just the right foundation?..for a discriminating assessment of what is solid, and what is ephemeral, in a life of godliness.?

Reviews - What do customers think about Seeing God: Twelve Reliable Signs of True Spirituality?

A Good Read, but...  Feb 10, 2001
McDermott's "Seeing God" is a good read, but you would do better to pick up the original John Edwards, or one of Dallas Willard's texts.

McDermott does illuminate spirituality through his "twelve reliable signs;" however, he does not plumb the depth of spirituality in the way Edwards does with his "Affections."

This book would serve best in a high-school Bible class, or as a small group text for new believers. For those needing more meat, see J. Edwards.

 
McDermott Gives Good Intro for Postmodern Pilgrims  Dec 26, 2000
Excellent introduction to a vast 'gold mine' of deep spiritual insights available from Jonathan Edwards [really THE GREATEST thinker America ever produced] and leads you to deepen your spiritual life. Leads you into a largely 'uncharted territory' for mainstream 20th [oops 21st] Century American Christians--that great well of deep Christian theologians and thinkers of the mid 1600s to early 1800s. Preacher/Theologian/Writers like Edwards and Whitefield and Milton and others are great food for hungry postmodern pilgrims. I think McDermott lays good groundwork of which another good 20th Century Christian Preacher/Theologian/Writer has built upon and popularized even more, that is John Piper, who has really brought Jonathan Edwards to the forefront and Piper's writings are highly recommended as well as Dallas Willard. McDermott's book lead you to that place, as Piper calls it, of 'Being Delighted in God' as Dallas Willard puts it in his book 'Divine Conspiracy' "Knowing Jesus as an essential part of the here and now." In other words 'Seeing God' helps us to become people who are God-centered, God-treasuring, God-filled, God-honoring, God-glorifying with wholehearted, whole soul commitment. 'Seeing God' is a refreshing, introspective and challenging read. Get it and you won't be disappointed.
 
One of my top five books  Mar 28, 2000
After reading this book I couldn't help but take time to carefully examine my own spiritual life. In a modern format McDermott write a "Cliff's notes" summary of Jonathan Edwards' work, Religous Affections. In three different categories he summarizes the unreliable signs of false spirituality and then gives us 12 reliable signs of true spirituality. He mixes biblical texts with his own comments as well as gives personal stories of people who illustrate these points. One could easily do a 12 week sermon series of this great book-one sermon per reliable sign. Please read this book!
