Editorial Reviews

Review

Our ministry is getting people to come apart in groups, but the real work is accomplished one by one. Monte Kline s book is a rich treasure house of guidance for individually facing God through retreat. ----David R. Talbott, Director of Advancement Mount Hermon Christian Camps & Conference Center, Mount Hermon, California

Face to Face lays out a game plan for a deeper and more meaningful relationship with Christ. ----Tom Flick, Motivational Speaker and former NFL quarterback

Only you and Him. It stands to reason you need some quality time Face to Face. ----Stu Weber, Author of Tender Warrior

About the Author

After a background in Christian ministry on college campuses, Monte Kline focused his attention on the biblical design for health in body, mind, and spirit. Experiencing the spiritual refreshment of many special times away with God, he began a study of personal retreats as found throughout the Bible and employed by Christians throughout the centuries. In this book he shares how you can create your own face to face encounters with God, believing that theres no substitute for your own personal encounter with God.

This is a very handy and easy-to-read guide for anybody who wants to plan a personal retreat with God. I'm happy to be able to recommend it to anybody who never knew there was such a book, but could benefit from the advice about tailor designing one to suit our needs.

In the first part, the author looks at histories of Biblical folk who took time to make personal retreats. There are many more than we may think. He suggests tips for us to get to know the real Person of God, instead of getting away and trying to worship someone we've made up in our own heads. He also gives tips at the outset about how we can increase our thirst for God, if we find it lacking. This includes the way we may prioritise 'urgent' demands and our true attitude toward mundane, routine tasks. There's also a good, comprehensive section about fasting, if we should choose to include this component in our retreats. As I've often found instructions about fasting a bit waffly and unclear in other books, I appreciated this one.

So that was all interesting, clear reading, but my favourite section is the one which sets out recommendations about setting up our own retreats. I love the idea that rather than regretting the fact that we can't take many long retreats in a year, it's possible to take several one day, closer to home ones for the same benefit. I like even more that this book stresses the value of doing just that, to take away the guilt some of us may feel for putting aside the time. (I'm imagining my family saying, 'Mum's taking one of her retreats' and being fine with it.)

Toward the end, Kline even includes an excerpt from a journal he kept on one of his own retreats, to give us a springboard to help plan our own. I'll definitely keep it on hand to refer to when I need it.

Thanks to the author for providing me with a review copy.

Because I sense a personal need for a deeper walk with the Lord, I have been reading books to help me find a path to it. The author states very clearly that the goal of this book is "to lead you into a life of `face to face' meetings with God - encounters after which you will never be the same.|"

His in-depth study of the many times that Jesus Christ went off to a quiet place to meet with His Father and what happened immediately thereafter make the reader sit up and take notice. They help create a thirst to find that same kind of close relationship with the Lord. Since God the Son needed and carved out special times with his Father in heaven, how can we expect to maintain our spiritual life without spending in depth time with Him to learn what He wants to teach us through one-on-one encounters?

The writer frequently quotes men recognized as teachers in the evangelical world. One of those quotes reminds us that we are human beings, not human doings.

Once we recognize our own spiritual impotency, we are likely to be driven to overcome our emptiness by carving out time for a Spiritual Retreat with the Lord. Most of the book details how and what and where to make that happen. . . and what to do when it does.

The author considers a recording of one's ongoing relationship with God in a personal journal to be essential for spiritual growth. That's where we bare our hearts to the Lord and subsequently become aware of His presence in our lives.

The large font, frequent use of bold face type and lots of white space on each page make this book inviting. Five or six questions at the end of the ten chapters in this fast paced book provide opportunity "For Further Thought & Discussion" and make the book a good one for group study

Highly recommended for all who want a closer walk with Jesus Christ. (I read the soft cover 2010 format.)

-Hope Irvin Marston, author of EYE ON THE IDITAROD: AISLING'S QUEST

I enjoyed the forthright style of writing throughout the book. Page 18 provided an excellent list.This list gave Scripture to support our unrealized identity in Christ. This is a list I will refer to often. Author Monty Kline threaded nuggets of gold such as this list throughout. There were sections at the end of each chapter for further discussion and thought, which would be invaluable for a small group environment. The Notes section also a nice touch and an excellent point of reference.

The second paragraph of the Introduction in Face To Face in my understanding was the mission statement for the entire book. So important for the reader to read the Introduction, as the Introduction was clearly an exhortation to become more personal with God.

Face To Face provided quotes from famous Christians. I enjoyed Larry Crabb's quote (page 36) as well as the author's journal entries from previous Personal Retreats. I enjoyed the journal entries and very much related to what Mr. Kline shared. The writer clearly had a way of allowing me to feel that I was his friend, and his encouragement and gentle prodding to for me to pursue a personal retreat was quite endearing. His soft humor did not escape me and I appreciated his interesting comments throughout the book.

One criticism was I would rather not have to read Rick Warren's quotes (see Church of Tares).

My biggest takeaway were "Track 5 Moments". I quote, "Track 5 Moments are noiseless moments, moments when God's voice shouts from his creation. They are intense, almost Edenic moments when your connection with God is unhindered-when you are "face to face". Personal Retreats invite you to Track 5 Moments." Sign me up!!!
