The Lord has blessed Bob Sorge with revelatory insight into many of the dynamics of the secret place, and has equipped him to share his passion for God with us. Sorge avoids making this a formulaic tome or a "how to" handbook on intimacy with God. Instead he writes in very clear, concise, personable, non-repetitious language and is totally consistent with scripture on the joys of seeking God.

There are so many books that attempt to provide a recipe on how to have a personal relationship with God, yet the only thing accomplished by following such manuals is that we become so acclimated to pursuing a prescribed formula that we fail to pursue God. Consequently, we become cookie cutter Christians void of fire and passion, so preoccupied with adhering to a fixed set of ambiguous rules that we miss the main thing. Thus, our interaction with God becomes nothing more than a mundane ritual. However, this author, to the reader's delight, keeps the main thing, the main thing--white hot pursuit of the Holy God. "Secrets of the Secret Place" emphasizes that because we are individuals each of us has a different relationship with our Lord. God didn't create us to be mass produced worshipers having no distinctive features. Instead of pointing the reader to a blueprint, Bob Sorge invites the reader to a Person (Jesus Christ).

The author encourages the passionate pursuit of God through Prayer, Reading God's Word, Fasting, Listening, Adoration, etc. The theme of the book never deviates from the Person of Jesus Christ--He is the Star of the book and the Hero of the story. Of course, Sorge shares some of his own personal experiences, but he doesn't overdo it; his illustrations are well-placed and do not detract from the central theme.

5.0 out of 5 stars You'll Come Back To It Again and Again May 4, 2006
All of Bob Sorge's books are incredibly profound, highly insightful, lovingly targeted, and passionately revelatory, but I have been coming back to SECRETS OF THE SECRET PLACE over and over for several years now. My copy is dog-eared and worn, and I am back here to purchase another one for myself and a few friends. To say this book was a breakthrough in realizing new and intimate views of God's love for me in prayer and throughout my days is an understatement. I wish I could bottle the "Secret to Feeling Attractive to God" Chapter, because it did (and still does) make me feel so desired and loved by my God. Besides the whole book, I come back to that chapter again and again. If you haven't already looked at the chapter titles, I would highly recommend it, because you will be blessed and given insight about the book just from reading them. They will definitely pique your interest. This book comes highly recommended. It's no secret: You should buy it. : )

5.0 out of 5 stars Meat for the Hungry Heart January 2, 2003
This book is top-grade meat for the heart hungry for Jesus. It's one of my top two favorite books after the Bible. Definitely a treasure which I'll always be reading. The chapters are short, but rich. Sorge shares practical tips from scripture (not formulas!) which if applied, will usher you into the throne room. Furthermore, Sorge's writings reveal he's been there, and he's still going. Awesome revelations!
If you want to get up-close-and-personal with God, this one's for you!

5.0 out of 5 stars Life Changing Book September 14, 2001
This book came into my hands at just the right time. I have been struggling with ministry responsibilities and God has been trying to draw me into his rest. I am still reading this book and so many things have changed in my relationship with God. Now, being alone with the word and in prayer is first in my life. God is teaching me the meaning of humility and he is pointing out my weak areas and I don't mind it. Bob Sorge has been some places in God that I in my 49 years of knowing him have not yet been.

Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Bob Sorge's "Secrets of the Secret Place" has revolutionized my quiet time (secret place). His struggles and insights highlight the importance of daily time with God and address the many impediments that can stifle it. Bob Sorge subtly turned my attitudes without any guilt trips. If you're going through a tough time in your life or in your prayer life, or you're hungering for a closeness with God that hides in the recesses of your memory or you've only seen from a distance, then read this book and discover all the secrets for yourself.

5.0 out of 5 stars Pivotal in my life July 20, 2006
I have learned so much about the character of God in this book. I have become a lot closer to him by better understanding how much he wants to meet with us, how strong his passionate love is (although I think I can never grasp that), and how God will answer the request to draw us close to him. _Secrets of the Secret Place_ has really been helpful in inspiring me to make changes in my schedule to spend beautiful time with the Lord, to be desperate for that time, and to have it be a fruitful time. God has really spoken to me this book. I HIGHLY suggest it for anyone who wants to be closer to God!

More About the Author

A teacher and author, Bob Sorge has been walking in the crucible of a sustained personal trial for 21 years. Through the fire, God has burned into his soul a passionate message of God's ways and how He walks us through the darkness to the highest heights of grace. Before the trial, Bob wrote the book, EXPLORING WORSHIP (and its accompanying WORKBOOK), which has received international acclaim as a primer for worship ministries. During this 20-year trial, an additional 18 books have emerged from the intensity of the journey. Several of Bob's books address issues of suffering and deliverance (such as IN HIS FACE, THE FIRE OF DELAYED ANSWERS, PAIN PERPLEXITY & PROMOTION, and UNRELENTING PRAYER). Some of his books address issues he has had to confront in his own soul (such as ENVY, DEALING WITH THE REJECTION AND PRAISE OF MAN, and LOYALTY), while other books are for worship ministries and leaders (such as FOLLOWING THE RIVER, IT'S NOT BUSINESS IT'S PERSONAL, GLORY, and OPENED FROM THE INSIDE). His best-selling book is SECRETS OF THE SECRET PLACE (see the curriculum that is available along with the accompanying DVD series), and his latest release (winter 2012) is BETWEEN THE LINES: GOD IS WRITING A STORY WITH YOUR LIFE. Having served as a senior pastor for thirteen years, Bob is now traveling domestically and abroad to bring his message of hope to the body of Christ. Bob and his wife, Marci, live in Kansas City, Missouri with their three children and six grandchildren.
