From the Back Cover
"If we want to know God personally, to relate to him intimately," says international evangelist Che Ahn, "we must be prepared to receive and experience his glory." Born out of his personal experiences with numerous revival movements around the world, Ahn provides insights into the manifest presence of God--his glory--showing how it reveals both his character and his power.
But Ahn takes it deeper by exploring the ways God's glory is displayed. Ahn also discusses God's purposes for revealing his glory, how he uses it to make us one with him, how his glory calls us to holiness, and much more. An invaluable resource, this book will appeal to believers who are looking to go deeper with God and allow his glory to transform them.

As a side note, while reading this book, I was already personally hoping to have more glory in my life and to be encouraged and taught how to help spread it. I believe that because of a yearning I had in my heart already once I opened up the pages of Ahn's book, the flame was kindled brighter in me and each page had to be highlighted and explored further. Some examples of God's manifestations in his book have seemed far too fantastical to me, yet the bible had similar instances occur: such as clouds appearing in temples/churches, people claiming to have gems fall from the sky and gold caps forming on teeth. Che Ahn explains that there are records and dental experts who can back up these facts as well. So who am I to judge?
*Book provided for review by Bethany House
Che Ahn's book begins as a testimony of what the LORD is doing right now around the world - many things that my own family has witnessed also. As people are spending time getting closer to the LORD, praising and worshiping him and getting hungry for more of HIM - both corporately and separately, He is showing up. My own family has seen gold dust appear on people, tasted manna (wafer-like food from heaven) that appeared and they've seen angels. Che Ahn tells about things that he has witnessed and also shares the stories of others - people being raised from the dead, seeing angels, things appearing such as angel feathers (I asked my sister, since she has seen angels and she says that yes, many of them do have wings with feathers), flawless gems and gold dust, rain inside of buildings, etc.
Before you think that I am getting excited just about the experiences - but trust me, how could an experience with God not be exciting? Please understand, I agree that the purpose of experiencing God's glory personally in our lives ultimately bring HIM glory, changes us for the better and MORE THAN ANYTHING is meant to help fulfill the Great Commission of letting the world know about him.
Something that my Dad heard as a young Christian and that I heard recently was "be careful that you are not seeking experiences more than God." When my Dad first became a Christian about thirty-five years ago, he had some amazing experiences with the Holy Spirit. When he went to church and told people about it, they told him this. My question is: If I am seeking experiences more than God, why would He answer my prayer to experience more of Him? (and how could it be bad/wrong to experience more of God?). I don't think He would answer my prayer to reveal more of Himself - or anyone else's prayer either - if it wasn't a good thing.
The LORD intends for the same power that raised Jesus Christ from the dead to be at work in our lives. As Che says, salvation is the beginning, but He does not intend for His mighty power at work in our lives to stop there!
