Publishers Description "If you crave the real experience of God's presence in your daily life... If you sense there's more to Christianity than service, study, and superficial spirituality... If you're ready to go beyond knowing "about" God to truly "knowing" Him... " Here's where life with God begins. Is God really like a father who cares about the details of our everyday lives? Then why does He often seem so far away, distant in the moments when we could most use a personal touch from Him? So many of us have lived in that unspoken longing. In these incredible stories, you'll see how one person found that God is not always content to wait for us to discover Him amid the clutter of life. Instead, when we simply hold out our hands, He illuminates our ordinary world and gives us new eyes to see. "Closer Than Your Skin" traces the journey of an ordinary Christian who longed to move beyond the trappings of faith to genuine life with God. Her story reveals how to overcome the obstacles that most often block such intimate connection. Through this remarkable account, you'll gain tangible insight into what a daily, vibrant companionship with the Creator really feels like once you wake up to the eternal reality all around you. "Interactive study guide included. "

Reviews - What do customers think about Closer Than Your Skin: Unwrapping the Mystery of Intimacy with God?
Though provoking Feb 2, 2010
Susan HIll sends the reader in a lot of personal directions. The way the bibical references are woven into the plot helps reading the Bible more meaningful and helps one apply it more closely to our personal lives. I've eagerly passed this on to family.
Just what I needed! Nov 27, 2009
I bought this book right after it came out, but did not start reading it until last week. God KNEW that this was the time I needed to hear from Him. As I read I was drawn in to the stories - I mean I LIVE right where she was headed in NH. I had been through many of the situations she faced and NOW was the time God wanted me to hear from Him. Every person needs to read this book if they want to really begin to see and hear God in every circumstance of their lives. Thanks for the reminder, Susan, that God is in everything around us if we will just listen to His voice.
God is WITH us! Mar 7, 2009
Thanks for this wonderful book! It truly helps you to reflect on circumstances (and see Him there) and be on the watch for God everyday. You will see the ways He will communicate to you and ways you can acknowledge Him (in service to others, etc).

My sister went to a book party with Susan D. Hill and sent me the book. Oh how I wish I had picked it up immediately. Hill is witty and smart, and God and Jesus seem so much more real to my everyday life. I have never enjoyed a book so much that has also made such a difference in me. Fabulous work...please write more!!
Practical approach to intimacy with God May 12, 2008
This is an absolutely phenomenal book. If you have ever wondered things like "does God really care?" or "Can you really hear me?" or "How do I know you are there?" read this book!
Written in a conversational manner, Susan lays out a road map to paying attention to the little details of life that show that God does care, does hear and is here. In a truly practical fashion, this book cleans out your spiritual ears and allows you to relax and receive the presence of God in your life. From overcoming the obstacles of achieving that intimacy to watching for details, Closer Than Your Skin helps you find a new level in God that you probably never thought possible in this lifetime. In the 30 days since I finished the book, I'm 100% more aware and on fire once again!
