When I first saw the cover of this book I was sold. I mean, who doesn't want to have more intimacy with God - and what person isn't enticed by the great layout of this cover. They say don't judge a book by it's cover but we all do, and I shouldn't have because while this book has some high points, it was a disappointing read overall.

Brian Lake takes you through a deeper study on Esther's life in Romancing the King with the overall objective of the book being to show us how God desires us to enter into His courts - into a place of intimacy with Him. Lake tells of how Esther was called and how we are called as well. He tells of how Esther spent time preparing for that special place of intimacy, and how we are to do the same. Furthermore, Lake goes on to tell of our purpose and destiny here on this earth.

So while all that might sound appealing in bullet-point form, I must say the book lacked that engaging ability that all of us readers love to see and have in books. Honestly, with hundreds of thousands of books in the field of Christian literature, to read a book that lacks the ability to fully engage the reader - it's just not worth it, and it surely isn't worth it for the non-avid reader.

To bring Brian Lake due justice, there are some good things to say about this book as well. For me, the top two qualities of this book are his topical discussions on issues that bring us into more intimacy with God and the Points to Ponder sections at the end of each chapter. Two topical sections that he gives some great explanation on are fasting and communion. For example, he tells the reader about different practicals of fasting that can help us enter into a deeper place of intimacy with God.

Brian Lake brings to the table ingredients necessary for the Believer to truly "feast" with the Lord in intimacy. Not head knowledge but heart knowledge. "We can go to conferences, acquire biblical books and tapes, and not ever really know Him." If you desire to gain strategies and habits that will open the windows of heaven in your life than this resource is for you!

Because we were created to know Him, when we know what He likes, Lake says, we will be favored by the Lord just like Esther in the Bible. This is not an easy one, two, three step to intimacy, but if the reader is serious about ongoing relationship then heed Lake's advice that the degree of access we have to God's presence is connected to the depths of our relationship with Him. While you understand the importance of quiet time, fasting, and reading the word, discover also how to rid yourself of constant busyness and purge out sin that wrecks intimacy. "In order to access the windows to the kingdom, we must clean the rooms in our hearts. Then,and only then will we access the rivers of living waters, revelation, power, and love of the kingdom. "
Learn the truth about the Holy Spirit and that He responds to a hungry heart for God.

I discovered how to better posture myself for key visitation experiences. By spending time in His presents, the author exhorts, the love and trust relationship sores and casts out fear. Included also in this book are seven steps to knowing God: faith, virtue, knowledge, self-control, steadfastness, godliness, and love. This work stimulated me to design a regular intimacy with the Father and to realize if we are not in a right relationship with God that we will not have a visitation or manifestation of His presence.

Brian Lake's "Romancing the King" is filled with life changing principles for finding intimate fellowship and union with God. Brian's writing is fresh with a new vitality and enthusiasm for finding purpose and power in your life by pursuing the presence of God. The book is magnificent in scope and practical in application.

In profoundly meaningful conversations with God Brian leads the reader into the eminent presence of the King. Brian reminds the reader that transforming worship is more than forms, creeds, styles, and methods. This worship involves a "presence driven focus" on experiencing intimacy with God.

"Romancing the King" is founded on the Word of God. Brian Lake writes of his personal experiences and revelations introducing a rising generation of new believers to their purpose and destiny as he encourages them to explore a deeper level of worship.

If you desire to have an intimate relationship with your heavenly father, this author offers some practical examples for developing a deeper relationship with him. Most noted was his application of scriptures & his down to earth approach to this subject matter.

I have to tell you that the grammatical errors were minimal and bearable. I was even able to pass the fact that Moses received the stone tablets from under the mountain. Some of the scriptures had prepositions missing and there was at least one paragraph repeated in the book. But all that aside, i was interested in Sid Roth's endorsement. He said, "to watch the miracles as you follow the revelation from the Book of Esther". Most of chapter one was devoted to looking at Esther and her preperation for the King. The author then veers of this topic and does not return to it until the middle of Chapter 5 (page 85). The author was making a good correlation between Esther and how she had to romance the king and by understanding this we could better understand what God desired from us. I wish Brian would have written the whole book the way he wrote about Esther and the king. With the rest of the book, I had no issues with the points he was making. I just did not understand how it related to the story of Esther. i thought that since Vrian started with Esther that he was going to continue with Esther all the way through the book. I may have to read this one again at a later time. I was looking to strength my relationship with God. To know Him personally and not just intellectually. I thought that Romancing the King sounded as intimate as you could get and would be very beneficial to me. Maybe it will at another time.
