Publisher's Summary

The Bible is filled with examples of an intimate God, a God keenly interested in connecting with ordinary people. He promises to be with us. He says he will personally guide us. Yet somehow, intimacy with God eludes us. Caught up in the mainstream of life, we know we're missing something vital. But how do we attain it? God Is Closer Than You Think shows how you can enjoy a vibrant, moment-by-moment relationship with yoru heavenly Father. Not some abstract theological concept, but the real deal, intimate connection with a deeply personal God.
Best-selling author John Ortberg reveals the face of God waiting to be discovered in the complex mosaic of your life. He shows you God's hand stretching toward you. And, with his gift for storytelling, Ortberg illustrates the ways in which you can reach toward God in return and complete the connection, to your joy and his.


What the Critics Say

"Those looking for an approachable, quick read on a difficult subject will appreciate this guide, which alludes to the mysteries of God's intimacy with Christians, but doesn't get bogged down in too many details." (Publishers Weekly)

Great listen again and again

I'm on my third listen and I still laugh at the funny parts and want to pause the playback to make notes at the parts that really touch me. John Ortberg is, as always, an excellent teacher. His insights and comparisons to every day life make what he has to say so relevant to today's society and lifestyle. He is a gift! Where's Waldo? He's closer than you think ...

He makes God feel closer

John is serious about many things but has a great sense of humor that makes this a joy to listen to and packed with wonderful lessons. I highly recommend this book. It isn't a one-size-fits-all, feel-good book. Practical and entertaining. He helps you find God using examples both sublime and ridiculous, from Michelangelo to Where's Waldo to a 2 1/2 year old child. If you listen to this and don't learn something, you weren't listening!
