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?

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!

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.

Okay, I must confess, I haven't finished this book yet. I've read about 50 pages of it. But I really couldn't wait another day to review this incredible book. The subtitle is "Finding Intimacy with God Through a Daily Devotional Life". This is not a book of "shoulds" and plans that you have to follow to the letter. Nancy DeMoss's enphasis is that we shouldn't have devotional times to please God (he couldn't love us more already), or to feed proud of ourselves, but to spend time with Jesus Christ, the Lord of our lives!
The book is beautifully laid out, from the inviting cover, to the organization of the chapters of the book to an appendix of devotional books (I could add about 3 times as many, though! <g>).
The whole book centers on establishing a vibrant devotional life, starting with the priority, the purpose, the pattern, and the problems that come up when we're trying to have a good devotional life. Then Nancy DeMoss has chapters on receiving the Word, responding to His Word,
A great feature of this book is that at the end of each chapter, there is a section of questions called "Making It Personal". These questions are just outstanding and get you thinking about what you've just read and you can apply what you've learned to your life immediately. Unlike some other study questions I've run into in other books, these questions do not have an obvious answer and really get you thinking. I find that writing the answers down in a journal helps me a great deal and it will be interesting to look back at the answers in future years.
