A few months ago, I was sharing a rushed dinner with some friends and complained that my life had become one hurried blur. Too much going on, not enough down time, and, most disconcerting for this Christian, I was reeling from a lack of quality time with my Lord and Savior Jesus Christ.
One of my friends recommended I read 'Intimacy with the Almighty.' Later that evening I logged onto Amazon.com and purchased a copy. A few days later, while I was on the verge of a 'Tyranny of the Urgent' induced meltdown, this gem arrived in the mail.

Thanks be to God. This essay is a quick read -- but packs the most punch you can imagine from a tiny 80 or so page book. Read it and see what a fantastic, simple-to-follow (but beautifully written) blueprint for spiritual growth Chuck Swindoll lays out.

You will be truly blessed!

P.S. - I have since order six more copies and am planning to give them as Christmas presents. Not only is this a great read, but it's an attractive package (leather-look green cover with gold writing - great holiday colors)

Format: Hardcover
Let me preface my remarks by saying that I'm a HUGE fan of brother Chuck, and I have great love and admiration for him as one of today's preeminent Christian leaders. Of all the persons I could choose to emulate, it would be Chuck Swindoll. In reviewing this book, my comments are intended to be totally objective and not a criticism of the author.
My main impression of this book is that, while it provides some valuable insights about some spiritual disciplines that every committed Christian should undertake, it stops far short of being a truly practical resource. Chuck Swindoll steps aside briefly from his hectic life to take stock of some key things that many (most?) Christians miss in their day to day walk with God. He introduces some disciplines which we would all do well to practice, but doesn't really talk about the "how."
In other words, and at the risk of sounding flippant, my reaction on finishing this book (about a one-hour undertaking) was: "Tell me something I don't already know." As a believer who seeks a closer relationship with God, I have long since recognized the need to try to slow down my lifestyle and find time to get alone with God for prayer, study and meditation. I have been struggling with these very issues for some time: how to balance work, parenthood, church activities, household chores, rest, etc. while still finding a way to spend a meaningful amount of time communing with God.
It was my hope that this book would be more of a "how-to guide" than just a simple overview of these truths, and in that sense I was a bit disappointed. Don't misunderstand me, I think the book is great as far as it goes, but I wish Chuck had taken the time to take this important subject into much greater detail. He speaks of "depth" but doesn't really provide it here. Had he done that, I'm sure I could have derived much greater benefit from it.

Format: Hardcover
Satan has a unique strategy for every culture. In North America today he has chosen the rat race. Keep Christians too busy doing good things that they forget Who they are doing them for! This little book helps us get back on track. Slow down, find time to be alone with God in a quiet place. Journal your thoughts. Then surrender! I have purchased several copies and given them to leaders in our church. Thank you Chuck!

Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
This short book (80 pages) by Swindoll is one of the most practical books I have ever read. It will be difficult to practice, but if you want to establish a meaningful, full, devotional life, this may be the best thing you can get. It is profound in its simplicity. Gut wrenching in its difficulty to accomplish.

Format: Hardcover
This small, quick read packs quite a powerful punch for the Christian looking for a closer walk with the Almighty.
The author shares with us his experiences with his walk with the Lord and helps us to see, through his life how he was able to draw closer to the Almighty, bringing him to a more fulfilled relationship.
He uses examples, such as turning from our busy lives and being still to know that He is God. He speakes to us of what it is to trust God and to surrender to One that loves us. Tenderely he leads us step by step into a deeper knowledge of knowing the way to a closer walk with Him.
This is a very good read, not too long, but extremely useful to the Christian seeking intimacy with their Maker.

Format: Hardcover
I could never imagined how taking the time to enjoy solutitude with my Lord and Savior was what was missing from my life. Swindoll reminds us that when we are sooo busy, we are missing what is most important--HIM, our Almighty, the great I AM. This book was so short, but it's words and basis will remind you of what is probably lacking in your life. I was reminded that depth is needed for a relationship to grow. Solitude is needed to "grow" that depth and stillness to hear HIM. Go for it--read this book! What have you got to lose?

It is hard to believe that a book this small can say so much. This book is foundational in laying the ground work for any person who is seriously looking to stregthen their relationship with God. The focus is on four disciplines that if practiced faithfully will make your relationship with God more real and true, then that which you are currently experiencing. Read this book.
