About the Author

After a background in Christian ministry on college campuses, Monte Kline focused his attention on the biblical design for health in body, mind, and spirit. Experiencing the spiritual refreshment of many special times away with God, he began a study of personal retreats as found throughout the Bible and employed by Christians throughout the centuries. In this book he shares how you can create your own face to face encounters with God, believing that theres no substitute for your own personal encounter with God.

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.

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.

This is a very handy and easy-to-read guide for anybody who wants to plan a personal retreat with God. I'm happy to be able to recommend it to anybody who never knew there was such a book, but could benefit from the advice about tailor designing one to suit our needs.

In the first part, the author looks at histories of Biblical folk who took time to make personal retreats. There are many more than we may think. He suggests tips for us to get to know the real Person of God, instead of getting away and trying to worship someone we've made up in our own heads. He also gives tips at the outset about how we can increase our thirst for God, if we find it lacking. This includes the way we may prioritise 'urgent' demands and our true attitude toward mundane, routine tasks. There's also a good, comprehensive section about fasting, if we should choose to include this component in our retreats. As I've often found instructions about fasting a bit waffly and unclear in other books, I appreciated this one.

So that was all interesting, clear reading, but my favourite section is the one which sets out recommendations about setting up our own retreats. I love the idea that rather than regretting the fact that we can't take many long retreats in a year, it's possible to take several one day, closer to home ones for the same benefit. I like even more that this book stresses the value of doing just that, to take away the guilt some of us may feel for putting aside the time. (I'm imagining my family saying, 'Mum's taking one of her retreats' and being fine with it.)

Toward the end, Kline even includes an excerpt from a journal he kept on one of his own retreats, to give us a springboard to help plan our own. I'll definitely keep it on hand to refer to when I need it.

Thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy.

I was impressed with the similarities in our backgrounds as far as authors we have read and what has impressed us along our journeys. I believe in personal retreats as a way to discern God's heart for us when we are in great need of growth, guidance and reassurance. From the female viewpoint I would add a few segues, such as the example of Susanna Wesley, who achieved her personal "retreat" under her apron in her bedroom. Her children knew not to interrupt her communion with God while that flag was over her head! I do agree that we need to find a quiet spot of seclusion, as much as we can manage, to get alone with God, and hear his heart, and let him have access to ours. Sometimes complete aloneness is just not possible, but I've found times on church retreats can be made to suit as well, especially when coupled with writing down our questions and answers.

I was surprised to find that, before I came to the chapter on journalling, the Lord ministered to me to begin a daily "diary." I had to determine not to become overly analytical with it so as not to bury myself in critical self searching before ever writing anything down, because that can be my downfall. Once I had started jotting down a few daily events, I realized that some deeper thoughts surfaced for my consideration which I had not even recognized I was worrying over. Once written down, I could let them go. Then I was pleased and surprised to read the chapter on journalling, and I am continuing the practice, finding it a good daily help in my spiritual life, as it adds reflection at the end of my day.

Your chapter, Journal of a Personal Retreat, was a very good idea. I believe that was the point in the book when I was sure I understood the points you were making.

A review of Face to face: Meeting God in the quiet places

This book, written by Monte Kline, is formatted as a small groups study. There are questions at the end of each chapter, which helps to spur on discussion of the key points expressed. It seems to be a mix of a sermon at times, a devotional during other times, wrapped up in a self-help guide. The book is well written, uses plenty of scriptural references where appropriate to support his views, as well as crediting quotations referenced throughout with either in-text citations and/or footnotes.
In the book, he describes the ‘busyness’ of the modern world. He states, “When we recognize ourselves as human beings, not human doings, we will plug into the source of that being”. I agree with this. All to often, as Christians, we busy ourselves with the work of the Kingdom as well as our daily lives, forgetting to plug in and recharge ourselves with the power source, i.e. God.
Another interesting quote from Kline, “Power is a function of focus”, is an interesting thought. Light, scattered and diffused is rather benign. Focus that scattered light, and you get a powerful beam that can be used for great purpose. The key is the focus. If we want a powerful relationship with God, we need to focus.
“Learn from Jesus and resort to special prayer when you are going through a difficult trial or contemplating a new endeavor for the Master’s glory”. What Kline is saying is to find a personal retreat, a place away from others, a place you can be alone and connect with God when you have a particularly troublesome problem in your life. Jesus did this. Moses did this. Paul did this as well. We need to locate a place where we can focus solely on our relationship with Jesus. Get connected to God. Find peace in His presence.
