Book Description

As the grandson of Billy and Ruth Bell Graham, Tullian Tchividjian grew up hearing the Christian faith preached to millions. Yet he struggled to come to faith personally. His first book, Do I Know God? captures the sincerity and intensity of his own spiritual quest, and shows the way for a new generation of seekers.

Combining careful thinking, warm personal story, and an exceptional grounding in biblical truths, Tullian delivers trustworthy answers to the questions you’ve been asking:

·Is it really possible to know God?
·Is being “spiritual” or “religious” the same thing as having a relationship with God?
·What is the relationship between saving faith and good works?
·How does believing God’s promises assure me of salvation?
·How do my feelings for God affect my relationship with him?
·How can I trust that God is present when I feel only his absence?
·Can a relationship with God assure me of a future with him in eternity?


Do I Know God? was written with a wide range of readers in mind: those outside the Christian faith, newer Christ followers who feel confused about their relationship with God, and long-time Christians who have never gotten clarity on key questions like eternal security and assurance of salvation, faith and works.

Tullian shows readers how to discover a genuine, vibrant and enduring relationship with God. And it all begins with the vital question: Do I Know God?

Editorial Reviews

Review

“Apart from the Bible, this may be the most important book you could ever read because it will help you answer the most important question you could ever ask: Do I know God?”
–From the foreword by Billy Graham


“To know that you know God and God knows you is life’s greatest source of peace, joy, and strength for the journey. Tullian takes strugglers by the hand and leads them with sure steps towards this certainty. Here is a book to be trusted and treasured.”
J.I. Packer, author of Knowing God

“With wisdom, grace, and transparency, Tullian helps clear the sometimes uncertain path of knowing and following after God. I am thrilled to endorse this thoughtful work and trust you will find it equally engaging and helpful.”
Ravi Zacharias, author of Can Man Live Without God

“Warm, fresh, and helpful, Tullian’s insightful answer to the question ‘Do I know God?’ will be a guide and an encouragement to many.”
Os Guinness, author of The Call

4.0 out of 5 stars Biblical and Pastoral December 10, 2007
Format:Hardcover
There can be no question more important to a person than this one: "Do I know God?" Those who do know Him have the privilege of being adopted into the family of God and being assured of an eternity in His presence. Those who do not have no such privilege and no such hope. In America the vast majority of people claim to be Christians and claim to know God, but so many lives simply do not bear this out. People may know about God, but they do not know God as He is. And so many will perish, going to the grave with some kind of false assurance, thinking they know God when really they do not. It does us all good to ask not once but throughout life, "Do I know God?"

God wants us to know Him and not only that, He wants us to know that we know Him. He wants us to be able to find certainty in this most important relationship. This certainty, the certainty that allows us to have confidence that we are saved and that God loves and will preserve us, is the subject of Do I Know God? by Tullian Tchividjian. Though not a household name, his full name provides some important context: William Graham Tullian Tchividjian is the grandson of Ruth and Billy Graham. As a young man he rebelled and ran from the faith, but was radically saved in 1993 and has since entered the pastoral ministry having first graduated from Reformed Theological Seminary in Orlando, Florida. In 2003 he founded New City Presbyterian Church in Florida where he serves as pastor.

Tchividjian wrote this book to show that we can have assurance of our salvation and to teach the reader how we can have this kind of certainty. "The Bible makes it clear that if you're confused about which group [those who know God and those who don't] you belong to, you don't have to remain confused.

5.0 out of 5 stars Solidly Biblical and very pastoral book on Assurance November 25, 2007
Format:Hardcover
I just read this book over thanksgiving weekend. great book. Tullian does a great job explaining how praying the sinner's prayer, making a decision, being religious, being spiritual, doing good works, and having 'faith' all don't necessarily imply that you really KNOW Jesus. He makes the point that desiring Him in your heart, living a changed life, and trusting in His faithfulness are 3 key areas that we look for assurance that we've really been born again.

But the best and most helpful chapter in the book is probably chapter 10 - "Knowing God in the dark night." It's all about those 'dry' seasons where we just don't feel His presence (and sometimes begin to wonder if we really know Him). Tullian makes the great pt that if you ache for His presence, that's an evidence that we DO have a relationship with Him.

overall great book for anyone struggling with assurance. I wasn't even struggling with assurance when I picked it up and it still helped tremendously. Praise be to God for His saving and assuring Grace.

Everyone who has agonized over Matthew 7:22ff, (where Jesus predicts that many will say to Him, in that Day, that they were certainly expecting His welcome, but were wrong), will want to read Tullian's careful Biblical study of the question, "Do I Know God.?"
Hopefully many of those that answer that question with an emphatic affirmative will read the book. The presentation is interesting; relying on personal anecdotes making the profound exposition most readable. The footnoted quotations, supporting the logical progression of Tullian's ideas will be invaluable to those asked by others for help with this question.
The strong endorsements of J.I. Packer, Ravi Zacharias, Os Guiness, and Tullian's grandfather, Billy Graham commend this book to all of us that care about our personal answer to the Title question.

4.0 out of 5 stars Timely Book on Assurance of Salvation March 11, 2009
Format:Hardcover
In Do I Know God? Tullian Tchividjian sets out to accomplish three goals: 1) Examine what a real relationship with God means; 2) Help Christians examine their own faith so they can make their "calling and election sure" (2 Peter 1:10); and 3) Recommend spiritual disciplines to help Christians thrive "emotionally and spiritually" in their own relationship with Christ. In all three goals I believe the book succeeds.

Writing in a clear and simple manner, Tchividjian proceeds to explain the concept of salvation in a way that even one with little prior understanding of the Christian faith can understand. He manages to do this, however, in a way that doesn't insult the intelligence of his readers, no matter their level of spiritual maturity.

While identifying what an authentic relationship with Jesus Christ looks like, Tchividjian ensures that his readers understand the difference between knowing about God and truly knowing God. To do this, Tchividjian briefly talks about his own life experience. Though he was raised in a Christian home by godly parents, attended a Christian school and frequented church, Tchividjian never knew God as a child. This lack of a relationship, he explains, led to his rebellion as a teenager. Tchividjian writes:

"By the age of sixteen, I had dropped out of high school, managed to get myself kicked out of the house (the police literally escorted me from my parents' property), and set off party hopping across South Florida. At the time, of course, I was very pleased with my achievements. Freed from the constraints of teachers and parents, I pursued pleasure harder than most my age, trying desperately to "find myself" through promiscuity, drugs and alcohol.
