Drawing Near: A Life of Intimacy with God by John Bevere Very Good Condition, Clean, Unmarked, foxed with plastic book cover. Description - In Drawing Near, John Bevere invites readers to explore a life of intimacy with God. Emphasizing the need for obedience, he urges us to practice-just as we would practice anything we hope to improve-our communication with the Holy Spirit. Understanding that prayer is a dialogue, not a monologue, Bevere encourages us to listen at the Father's feet. Study questions in each chapter offer opportunity for reflection, and a "How to draw near to God" section offers practical steps toward developing true intimacy with Him. Editorial Reviews: Bevere, host of the weekly television program The Messenger, offers keen biblical insights in this spirituality book about enjoying true intimacy with God. God, writes Bevere, longs to have intimate communion with each of his children and has taken great pains throughout history to establish relationships with individual people. Drawing upon numerous biblical stories, many of which are relatively obscure tales from the Old Testament, Bevere displays a rare talent for detailed scrutiny of the text. Readers will be startled by some of his fresh, perceptive observations about various biblical passages, or the attention he gives to certain glossed-over details. The writing is not exceptional, but the prose is straightforward and conversational, as though Bevere were sitting down to a small Bible study with a few friends.
