Editorial Reviews

Review

"All who encounter Nancy see her deep walk with God that radiates from within her.  To discover her secret, read this book slowly so that her intimacy with God can be yours too."
-Evelyn Christenson, Author What Happens When Women Pray

"My dear friend's book is so timely...so urgent.  Its beauty in style and words will woo you to the feet of the Lover of your soul, and there teach you how to converse with the Sovereign ruler of the universe.  It will show you how to be still...to cease striving, to let go, to relax...and know that He is God.  He has not left His throne."
-Kay Arthur, Precept Ministries

"One of the greatest young Bible teachers and Christian speakers of our time.  She is both biblical and practical... Spend an enjoyable and rewarding quiet time developing an intimate relationship with God."
-Vonette Bright, Campus Crusade for Christ

From the Back Cover

ARE YOU IN NEED OF ENCOURAGEMENT TO SEEK AFTER GOD WITH YOUR WHOLE HEART?

The God of the universe created us for fellowship with Himself!  We realize this and even long for that sweet intimacy with God, but it often seems so out of reach.  Yet even in the busyness of daily life, we hear those whispers calling us, drawing us to set at Jesus' feet.

Nancy Leigh DeMoss demystifies the process of coming to know God intimately.  In A Place of Quiet Rest Nancy shares from her heart and life how a daily devotional time can forever change your relationship with Jesus.  She addresses the common frustrations and pitfalls that most of us encounter in our devotional life, and makes practical suggestions for overcoming them.  Nancy gives us the encouragement--and tools--to seek after God for a lifetime.

Okay, I finished this book! You'll find my initial review below - I was the first reviewer of this book. This book has impacted me more than any other book I've read on the subject of having daily Quiet Times with the Lord. If you need to be convinced of the need for this in your own Christian walk, or you need to get back on the path, please read this book! Nancy Leigh DeMoss does such an outstanding job with this book. Chapter 6, entitled "The Hard Thing for me is..." discusses many "excuses" or things that stand in the way of having productive daily devotional times. The author addresses all these issues and gives really practical and helpful suggestions, all the while giving examples from her own life.
One of the women in our small group Bible Study had been to a Women's Conference where Nancy Leigh DeMoss spoke on this issue "Devotional Time: Duty or Delight" and she came back and told our group about it. I was already reading this book and after hearing about the conference and looking at my book, every woman in our group wanted the book for themselves and already several of them are reading it and reaping the benefits of a closer walk with the Lord! Nancy, when are you writing another book?

Format: Hardcover
This is an excellent book from one of the great Christian women of our day. I have found this book so encouraging and instructive. Though it was written primarily for women, I have found great help in it. I think every Christian would benefit from the practical Biblical teaching that Nancy DeMoss gives. Very few, if any, leaves are left unturned. Extended time is given to issues such as obstacles to overcome, dealing with distractions, preparing our hearts for devotion, time in the Word, and both praise and prayer. Each chapter ends with a "Making It Personal" section, giving a list of application questions, and a testimony relating to the devotional life from other Christian women such as Elisabeth Elliot, Joni Erickson Tada, and Kay Arthur.
This book has added meaning to me, because I was on staff with Life Action Ministries for three years and know Nancy DeMoss personally. Her testimony regarding her father's consistency in daily devotions had an impact on me in 1994. I also remember her own personal testimony in 1995 when the Lord did a lot of the ground-breaking work in her life in this area (this book being one of the results!). She is a special Christian woman with a special message to ladies of this generation. Men, this would be a great gift for your wives! (Ladies, reading and applying this would be a great gift to your husbands!) Highly recommended!

Format: Hardcover Verified Purchase
If your daily time with Christ has become no more than a check on your "to-do" list, then let this book turn it for you, as it did for me, into a daily "love time" with Jesus Christ. The book has been adequately described in detail by other reviewers, but I just wanted to confirm their reports and relate that this is a book that will change your daily devotional time to an activity you cannot live without. Journalling, Bible study, intercession, singing, and other elements of a daily quiet time are covered in detail. Nancy De Moss shares her own failure at times to carve out her time with Jesus and does not set herself up as an example of perfection, but gives us enough tools to help us keep our devotional life vibrant. With notebook and Bible nearby I now thoroughly enjoy my time with the Lord each morning. The book is a great gift but be sure to give one to yourself first. Keep it, and re-read it once a year. It will become a favorite for a "renewal week-end" for yourself once a year.

Do you need a break? Do you need a refreshing? Stop what you are doing now and make a cup of tea and emerse yourself in the soothing book. It will aid you as you slow down from your fast-paced lifestyle. It will enable you to pause and rest.
I have read alot of devotionals and many books encouraging the reader to have quiet time with the Lord. But this one is the best yet! If you already have a daily established time set aside for you and the Lord, it will make you guard it even more. If you have not yet begun, you will be excited to do so and wonder why it has taken you so long!
Full of rare jewels, overflowing with treasures; reading this along with your journal is a must! You will not only record great finds from within the book, but also from within your relationship with the Lord!

I respect Nancy Leigh DeMoss and her walk with God. She shares insight and stories about her faith, her struggles and others' stories as well. This book draws you into intimacy with God. It teaches you practical steps in several spiritual disciplines, but articulates how to have intimacy-not just a routine. I really enjoyed reading it and was very challenge by each chapter. I enjoyed the review questions and the personal reflections from several Godly women. The only thing that I would change about this book is to write it for men and women. It is a great book on spiritual disciplines and will impact anyone who reads it. The special focus that it places on women will be especially helpful to young mothers though.
