In the book The Power of Knowing God, author and Pastor Tony Evans, writes about how really knowing God can change your life and your view of life. Evans writes: “The pursuit of God is not an ethereal, cloud-nine visit to nevernever land as you play the harp and sing songs. No, the pursuit of knowing and understanding God unlocks all you need to fully live out the victorious kingdom life you were made to fulfill. But one question remains: How bad do you want it?” Evans also writes: “See, a crisis is not just a crisis. It’s never just a crisis. It is an opportunity to experience and know God to a degree and depth that you have never known before.” This is a good, easy to read and understand book on how to know and connect with God better. I would highly recommend this book to anyone. I received a copy of this e-book from the publisher via NetGalley in exchange for an honest review.
Losing hope when things get rough, and not trusting God. That is a problem I bet all people have. No matter what their faith. Maybe I am wrong but who doesnt have doubts? The problem is when the doubts overtake us. This book focuses on Christian belief and Bible usage. I found this to be a very real help. Tony speaks in a conversational tone. The book is filled with examples of how to refocus on what God promises. I especially liked the comparison of Jesus having to experience the dirty garage as well as the sunny day. Excellent book,
Tony Evans demonstrates again what a wonderful teacher/preacher/man of God he is as he instructs readers on how to claim for themselves the power of knowing God. This highly readable, relatable and motivating book, tells readers that God is willing to meet us anytime, anywhere, whatever our circumstances because He longs for a deeply personal relationship with each of us.
Building this relationship, as with all other relationships will take honesty, truthfulness, transparency and commitment. We must seek to know God and His ways, make Him a priority in our life, seek to discover His plan for us as individuals.
So much is covered in this book that I can not begin to do it justice. I can tell you that I found it captivating, that it resonated with me and spoke to my soul, that it "woke me up" and challenged me, that I almost read it through in one sitting (was 10 minutes from the end of the book when we arrived at our destination and had to unpack the car).
This book will benefit all Christians, those new to the faith as well as long-time believers. Tony Evans keeps it real and has so much to offer. Do yourself a favor and set aside some time to read this book.
