"Lisa's case for a heart revival provokes thought, inspires change, and spreads a hopeful message: God is not hiding; he wants to be found by those who want him. Lisa vulnerably guides the reader toward this truth, which fosters a deeper love of God, a more intimate knowledge of who he is, and an understanding of why we want him."
—Mark Batterson, New York Times bestselling author of The Circle Maker
"This is not an easy read, and that is the highest compliment I can pay Lisa in her carefully penned but drastically bold work I Want God. If you feel like you have everything and at the same time you have nothing, read this book. It is a proclamation, a manifesto, and a rally-cry for those of us who are weary and hungry. Be warned: saying 'I Want God' will require much of you. In return, God will bring a revival to your heart and an abundance of Himself to the empty spaces around you. He will bring healing and hope."
—Anne Marie Miller, Bible teacher and author of Permission to Speak Freely and Lean on Me
"Reconstructive heart surgery. I Want God not only provides new life for your weary, worn-out soul, but it motivates you to exchange a lesser life for one that hungers after true joy. Written by a flawed and honest pilgrim, Lisa Whittle has walked this path toward soul revival before, and like a kindly guide, ushers us toward the renewed life in Jesus we've always longed for."
—Mary DeMuth, author of The Wall Around Your Heart
"This book resonates with the deepest cry of my heart."
—Sheila Walsh, Bible teacher and bestselling author
"I turned the first page, devoured the rest, and here I am...speechless. The reading of I Want God is a wrecking and a revival and a resurrection, all at once."
—Jill Kelly, New York Times bestselling author and speaker
"Lisa Whittle's writing strikes to the center of who we are meant to be. I am inspired and moved and deeply grateful for how she pours her heart out on every page. This book is no exception."
—Annie F. Downs, author of Let's All Be Brave

I was so excited about this book. It is small, yet it is so full of truth it took me quite some time to truly digest it. I read this because there was a part of my heart that felt completely unsatisfied about my relationshipt with God. I wanted to want God more than anything else. I felt like I was ripping God off and myself. No matter how hard I tried though, I still felt so far away. Well, far away unless I was in a crisis. In crisis I would often find myself huddled in my shower stall crying out to God. He always met me there. What I longed for was that closeness without the desperation.
Lisa showed me that I should be desperate for the Lord and that knowing God and wanting God will create a revival of our souls and when that happens we will see God move. Things may get crazy and they may get uncomfortable but in that total committment, we can be secure.
Wanting God means not necessarily giving up things, though that can happen, but definitely putting other things down that are taking God’s place. That was probably the biggest thing for me. I realized with much sadness that I had sinned against the Lord by putting so many things ahead of him. This isn’t about guilt. Not once did I feel anything more than conviction of how I can change things, and with excitement, I can say I have.
Anyone who feels something is missing in their relationship with the Lord and who really wants to take some steps to do something about it will find something in this book. It is hopeful, it is challenging, and for me it came just in time. I feel newly inspired in ways that not only I had not been in a long time, but also in ways I desperately needed.
