Great work on THE most important Christian topic

The Church, especially the American Church must recover the hostorical and Biblical practice of the Presence of God.

We are living as functional athiests in this world, as sheep who cannot hear their Shephard's voice, and so are Lords of our own lives, led not by the Spirit, but by our own broken wills . We have tossed aside the living and active relationship with the Lord Jesus Christ - being and doing only that which we see and hear the Father doing just as He did - that we were made for, in favor of a dead traditionalism.

This is the same traditionalism that seeks the kingdom through law rather than love and grace, that throws stones at, rather than pouring out love on, broken sinners, that put people in power who create policies that crush the poor and oppressed in the name of cowardly fear, and that sent Christ Himself to the Cross.

Learning to hear and obey the Holy Spirit by constantly making ourselves aware of His real and abiding - but gentle and loving - voice, is what produces the fruit of a Christianity that actually looks like the profundly beautful kingdom of God, and not just another ugly version of the violent, tribal, hateful and destructive kingdom of the world.

This book gives practical advice on developing tbis kind - the only real kind - of relationship with God. If you are a Christian, and you feel confused, directionless, that God is silent, then read this book.
