I read this book over 30 years ago but didn't realize at the time just how rich in spiritual insight this classic is. I am glad I read it again and recommend it for anyone wanting to grow in their faith.
I have known about this book since the early eighties when I read it as a college student seeking answers to hard questions. What I found here was, perhaps, new and better questions--Like, Who is God? How can I know Him? How will knowing Him change me? I have used this book numerous times in small group studies and given it away more times than I can count. It is solid biblically and theologically, as well as warm, inspiring and devotional.
I read this book as part of a church men's group and I found it very insightful. In some parts, DeHaan explains his views in an easily understandable way. In others it was more complicated and required rereading to get a more complete understanding. I still recommend this book as the author works to help the reader understand how to get a deeper more meaningful relationship with God.
Definitely one of the more insightful books I've read on the nature of the God of the Bible, and knowing Him as He has revealed Himself therein.
Eminently readable and practical, it fits neatly alongside such Christian classics as Knowing God by J.I. Packer and The Knowledge of the Holy by A.W. Tozer. I'm surprised that I hadn't heard of this book being recommended before coming across it in a sermon series I was listening through online.
Do yourself a favor and invest the time and money necessary to carefully and prayerfully read through this lovingly crafted work. The rewards will be well worth your effort.
