Book Description

Does God Want to Speak to You?

There's No Substitute for Your Own Personal Encounter with God

Imagine having a meeting with God that would forever transform your Christian life. What if you could create special times alone with God for illumination, direction on decisions, and just the delight of being in his presence like nothing you've ever experienced before? What is you could come "face to face" with God? Following the pattern of Abraham, Elijah, Paul, and other biblical characters, FACE TO FACE shows the way you can create those life-changing encounters.

You Will Discover

  • A way to meet with God and hear his voice
  • Keys to escaping the "noise" and busyness of life
  • A radically different and intimate way to pray
  • A method to "capture" your spiritual transformation
  • How to encounter God through a Personal Retreat

5.0 out of 5 stars Face to Face---much needed material April 7, 2010

I really liked your book "Face to Face" (if I didn't, I'd tell you that too!). It has stimulated me to restart my journaling and to plan a personal retreat.

I hope your book is a huge success and will go on to additional printings.

It will be a blessing to many. It has been to me.

I enjoyed the forthright style of writing throughout the book. Page 18 provided an excellent list.This list gave Scripture to support our unrealized identity in Christ. This is a list I will refer to often. Author Monty Kline threaded nuggets of gold such as this list throughout. There were sections at the end of each chapter for further discussion and thought, which would be invaluable for a small group environment. The Notes section also a nice touch and an excellent point of reference.

The second paragraph of the Introduction in Face To Face in my understanding was the mission statement for the entire book. So important for the reader to read the Introduction, as the Introduction was clearly an exhortation to become more personal with God.

Face To Face provided quotes from famous Christians. I enjoyed Larry Crabb's quote (page 36) as well as the author's journal entries from previous Personal Retreats. I enjoyed the journal entries and very much related to what Mr. Kline shared. The writer clearly had a way of allowing me to feel that I was his friend, and his encouragement and gentle prodding to for me to pursue a personal retreat was quite endearing. His soft humor did not escape me and I appreciated his interesting comments throughout the book.

One criticism was I would rather not have to read Rick Warren's quotes (see Church of Tares).

My biggest takeaway were "Track 5 Moments". I quote, "Track 5 Moments are noiseless moments, moments when God's voice shouts from his creation. They are intense, almost Edenic moments when your connection with God is unhindered-when you are "face to face". Personal Retreats invite you to Track 5 Moments." Sign me up!!!

5.0 out of 5 stars Great Content May 19, 2010
We all need and desire more of a sense of God's personal presence in our lives. Monte makes a very compelling case for the use of personal retreats to accomplish this purpose. He does not claim personal retreats are the "end-all-be-all" but he does invite the reader into a new way of journeying with God. His book is very instructive and very informative. While I greatly appreciate the instruction and information, my favorite part of the book is the application. It is one thing to be inspired to seek God in new ways, and it is another, and better thing, to be equipped on how to pursue this new way. He uses his own experiences to give the reader a vision which can, and should, lead to action. If you describe your walk with God as more of a limp, or if you face a pivotal crossroad in your life, or if you simply long to experience more of the personal presence of the God who created and loves you....this book is for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Good book December 8, 2014

It was thought provoking to be reminded about encountering God in a fresh and personal way. I want to meet God face to face every day and hope to find those special uninterrupted times to retreat from the things that demand my attention that I may hear a word from the Lord.

More About the Author

Monte Kline (b. 1949) grew up in the small village of Coal Valley, Illinois. Attracted to the mountains and seashore of the Pacific Northwest through vacations as a child, he went to college at Oregon State University, graduating with a degree in earth science in 1971. After having come to college as a confirmed atheist, he became a Christian his sophomore year.

Upon graduation, he and his wife, Nancy, served for several years in college campus Christian ministry, during which time he developed a serious cancer condition. After undergoing weeks of agonizingly painful conventional cancer treatment, a friend suggested he pursue a natural medicine approach, an approach that ultimately restored his health and implanted a desire to communicate biblical principles of health. His first book, EAT, DRINK & BE READY grew from that experience. Subsequent health-oriented books and booklets include THE JUNK FOOD WITHDRAWAL MANUAL, VITAMIN MANUAL FOR THE CONFUSED, THE SICK AND TIRED MANUAL, and BODY, MIND & HEALTH.

In 1984 Monte completed a Ph.D. in Nutrition & Wholistic Health Sciences and went into clinical nutrition practice. His Pacific Health Center clinic, headquartered in Sisters, Oregon, uses a virtual health screening technology available to anyone with an internet connection for assessing nutrient deficiencies, food and environmental sensitivities, toxins, and compatible supplements and natural remedies.

Monte's most recent work, FACE TO FACE: MEETING GOD IN THE QUIET PLACES focuses on deepening one's relationship with God through Personal Retreats. He recently completed a revised and expanded edition of his 1992 book BODY, MIND & HEALTH.
