2.0 out of 5 stars Nothing but fun reading, October 5, 2006

This review is from: God Is Closer Than You Think Participant's Guide: This Can Be the Greatest Moment of Your Life Because This Moment is the Place Where You Can Meet God (ZondervanGroupware Small Group Edition) (Paperback)
This book is okay for fun reading. The observations offered by the author are slightly entertaining, and may be even quite insightful to the very easily-impressed and motivated readers. For example, using conductor and resistor as analogy is misrepresenting the physics and meaning of the scientific terms. The counterpart of conductor is insulator. Actually a resistor in an electrical circuit is the part that does all the work - that makes the light bulbs or pickle glow, for instance.

Using surfing as an example of overcoming failure is okay. However sidetracking to muse about sharks and dolphins is juvenile and distracting.

I suppose this book is targeted for the average person and below for marketing purpose

Humility.
Grace.

I enjoyed this book very much and believe it will work very well for a small group study. We are going to partner it with a study on the Brother Lawrence book, The Practice of the Presence of God.
