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.

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 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!
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.
Another great feature of this book is that at the end of each chapter (after the questions section), there is a personal reflection written by other Christian women such as Elisabeth Elliot, Kay Arthur and many others. There are 12 of these vignettes, one for each chapter and they correspond beautifully with the material in the chapter.
When I finish this book, I'll write another review! I recommend this book highly!
I hope to see other reviews of the book here! Don't you wish you could writen authors directly!
