Item description for The God Who Draws Near: An Introduction to Biblical Spirituality (Emmaus) by Michael A. G. Haykin...
Overview The God who draws near is an attempt to recapture an understanding of true biblical spirituality and what that means for daily living. With so many ideas abounding of what spirituality is, both secular and religious, many are confused about what forms the basis of God-honouring spirituality. By going back to 'the Source' and mining the pages of God's Word, Michael Haykin draws together the main threads of vital spirituality and provides the foundation for believers to anchor their lives in truth, faith and an active, growing relationship with God - that very God who was pleased to draw near to us through his Son. May these pages help you to draw near to him.

Good Introduction to Spirituality, But It Wasn't the Deepest Nov 21, 2009
I got this book for my wife. She read it and was unimpressed, feeling it was elementary. I then read it, partially for research on my next novel. I felt the same way.
This book deals with important points, but it could have been done better.
One distraction is Haykin's obvious Calvinistic stand; he didn't ever mention anything leaning away from the five points. When quoting people, he used adjectives like "Baptist" and "Puritan" as if that colored what they said. A non-Calvinist would be distracted because of this emphasis.
A GREAT BOOK Apr 11, 2009
I actually work a Christian bookstore that carries a wide "Variety" of books on "Spirituality" including Joyce Meyer, Paula White, and Joel Osteen. We actually have a "Spirit Filled Living" section. A few months ago i placed a stack of these very biblical books on the shelf with the books of several prosperity focused charismatic writers. To my amazement, i have sold many many copies of the book to buyers, who are excited for it's apparently unique desire to found itself on SCRIPTURE. Wow thats a unique thought, writing a book on Spirituality that focuses on SCRIPTURE. Also, i think the fact that it is one of the few new books on sprituality featuring something else on the cover other than somebodies latest teeth whitening job doesn't hurt. Cheers!
