Item description for Loving God With All Five Senses by Tammy B. Melton...
Overview Whether it's a glimpse of a beautifully marked butterfly, the scent of a lilac bush or the shrill cry of a new baby, every day you experience God's creation through the gift of your senses. As intricate and awesome as our physical senses are, they can provide us with information that transcends the natural when we realize what each one signifies in the spiritual realm. Together they provide a road map to a more intimate relationship with God. This insightful Bible study shows the new Christian as well as the seasoned believer how to taste and see that the Lord is good, and how we can let the Lord be our vision and give us discernment. It also warns of the spiritual pitfalls that result when we misuse God's gifts of taste, touch, sight, hearing and smell. "God is immense, vast, and transcendent, but Tammy Melton shows biblically that He is also intimate, close, and somehow knowable. Tammy's unique premise is not one of manipulation or formula, but of discipline and mystery. Loving God With All Five Senses will inevitably breathe life into your extraordinary journey of pursuing God.

Reviews - What do customers think about Loving God With All Five Senses?
Great read; even better as a Bible study tool. Feb 24, 2008
I decided to use this book as a guide for my Bible study for a 6 week period, and it was great! Each chapter has a "Going Deeper" section that allows you to dig deeper into scriptures to emphasize the point of the chapter. The great thing about this book is that the chapters themselves are very informative and thought provoking even if you don't have the time to devote to the "Going Deeper" sections. There are numerous scripture references in the text itself, and also many fascinating facts that show the wonder of God's creation of the human body and our senses. Tammy Melton does a wonderful job of illustrating how God wants us to draw closer to him, but we have the choice to make on whether we'll recognize the awesomeness of God in us and around us, or be drawn away by our appetites. This book is easy to read and would make a great gift for a new Christian or anyone who wants to draw closer to God.
