Hungry For God (Book Review and Give Away)

Hungry for God

 

“In your heart you feel the longing---an emptiness that can't be satisfied by food, or friendships, or entertainment, or success, or anything this world can offer. Only God can fill the void. More than you know, you hunger for God. In Hungry for God, critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg puts you in touch with your desire for intimacy with your Creator and what it takes to find fulfillment.”

Each chapter offers discussion questions for small groups, Bible studies, and book clubs.  The book comes in paper back and audio book format.

My Thoughts:

One of my favorite quotes from this book is “I’m convinced that people today know a lot more about how to become a Christian than about how to be one.”   As pointed out by the author, the reason is that we don’t spend enough time with God, studying His word and listening to His voice.   We aren’t hungry for God!

Have you ever wondered “God is that you talking, or was that me?”  I think we’ve all been there at some point.   Margaret Feinberg points out some practical, Biblical ways to hear God’s voice more clearly.  She also shows you how to respond when you realize that you really did miss God…now what?

Give Away:

I will give away one copy of this book at 8pm one June 18, 2011.  If you’d like a chance to win, just leave me a comment below.  Be sure to leave a way for me to get in touch with you!

I would love this. Might spur me on to reading my Bible more, I get so caught up in the things that keep our home life ticking along.
