Ideal for church, individual, or small-group use. Paperback Number of Pages: Harvest House Publishers Publication Date: I thought that is what they meant by church. So I attended and received salvation and lost my roommate. Was blessed with a good job, and gained prosperity in Spiritual things of God.
I had spiritual encounters a few times before the Japanese roommates, but did not know how to seek God properly. I recommend this to all new born again Christians that need to develop a strong love and relationship with God. The author and I have many things in common except I do not have the Church religion background.
I stepped out in faith, and I have the same fundamental experiences when face to face with God in my life with God It is a must read book and their is scriptures and it is only for those who want to become wealthy spiritually instead of worldly wise.

When I read this the first time I was so excited to find someone who believed exactly as I did about the way God speaks to His people. Of course, Blackaby provides a tremendous amount of scriptural support for his position, so that was also very helpful. His view remains unusual, though no longer unique. He will lead you provided you are doing the When I read this the first time I was so excited to find someone who believed exactly as I did about the way God speaks to His people. He will lead you provided you are doing the other things in the book Where others say, "the Lord helps those who help themselves," Blackaby answers that God often does nothing until His people can "cease striving" and rest in Him.
I have never read a better explanation for the way God speaks, including how to know His voice, and the various media through which he speaks whether scripture, other Christians, circumstances, or the Church. This is an excellent book and I cannot recommend it too highly. I'm glad they made a 'book' version. The workbook is probably better because it is so engaging. But so many people will not buy or really use a workbook, so the book version will reach a lot of people.
May 06, Jeremy Manuel rated it liked it Shelves: Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. Despite this, my thoughts on the book are mixed. The point of the book is to find ways to experience God. In particular to see where God is working, and to be involved in His work. Overall, I thought that the principles that Blackaby presents for doing this are pretty solid. Nothing comes to mind that made me really wary when came down to his basic principles of how to experience God. There were two things that I did dislike about the book Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic.
There were two things that I did dislike about the book though. First, it suffers from appearing to be a bit prideful. I don't know Henry Blackaby so I have no idea what he is really like, but the writing style of the book just smacks of arrogance sometimes. Even in trying to be humble at one point he says that God had to look high and low for someone as ordinary as me. Not to mention constantly referring to some conference where he tells how somebody's life was changed by reading his book. Not that it isn't good to have testimonials, but the frequency of such examples, with few examples that don't involve the book or Blackaby himself, started to rub me the wrong way.
The second problem I had with the book, was that it gave a lopsided view of how God may speak to you. Many of Blackaby's examples are amazing. It is about how he and his wife were called to Canada to pastor a small church and all the amazing things that were done there or how people were called to serve God in amazing circumstances and amazing outcomes. These examples naturally led me to ask is this how God speaks to everybody?
What about God speaking to people in the everyday, in our communities, in things that are not "full-time ministry. We are not all meant to be Paul or Moses at least in terms of our accomplishments. So while I thought it was solid on its principles, the tone of the book and the examples it gave slightly diminished its value in my eyes.
Jan 09, Maya rated it really liked it. We read this book with our Bible study group and it was a good one to dive into with others to discuss. Blackaby covers all the different ways we can experience God and how important it is to pay attention to each of these. The overall theme of the book is to pay attention to how God could be working around you and how He wants you to be part of that. Instead of asking in prayer all the things you want, ask Him what He wants for your life, what you should jump into and for guidance.
The book dis We read this book with our Bible study group and it was a good one to dive into with others to discuss. The book discusses different ways that God can speak to his people and how each of us can experience Him as couples, in our children's lives, in the church, marketplace, and His kingdom.
I will admit that at times I felt like there was story after story about Blackaby at a conference and how someone's life was changed by something he said. But if you can get past some of that there is good ideas to grasp onto and new ways to look at convening with God. Blackaby does a wonderful job at making sure the reader understands that this whole following God thing is not easy and that you will run into hardship and obstacles as you try to follow His will for your life.
I wish he would have gone into this a little more but he does an overall good job of covering it. He does not call you to get involved in His activity merely so people can see what you can do. He will call you to an assignment that you cannot accomplish apart from His divine intervention. God's assignments have God-sized dimensions. But if you are God-centered, your focus remains on Him alone. Storms may rage around you, but as long as you have God in your sight, you'll stay the course. Apr 22, Shane Gliser rated it it was ok.
A concerned Christian's review: Nobel intentions but with more theological holes than you can shake a cross at. For example the very thesis verse is taken out of context and thus flawed. This is not to say that it is without value. It is good at getting people into the word and getting people used to the i A concerned Christian's review: It is good at getting people into the word and getting people used to the idea of seeking God on individual level.
In that regard, it's great. However, due to the flawed theological premise, it could lead to long-term disillusionment, frustration, and unfounded fear and doubt for believers who have been told through the book that if they're not hearing from God that there is something wrong with their Christian walk. This book is filled with both good and bad theology.
Unfortunately the bad theology is enough to cause the reader to be misled by the major theme of the book: Blackaby bases his entire theological foundation on the misinterpretation and poor application of several passages in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John. This makes the entire book built on a faulty interpretation of an important passage that is about the trinitarian nature of God and not about how the Christia This book is filled with both good and bad theology.
This makes the entire book built on a faulty interpretation of an important passage that is about the trinitarian nature of God and not about how the Christian finds God's will. Most Christians will not agree with my take on this book because Blackaby's work is so popular and so many Christians have gone through an "Experiencing God" seminar. How can such a popular book be so wrong? My advice concerning this book is to Google "critiquing Experiencing God Henry Blackaby" and read what other apologists have said about the false information contained in Blackaby's book.
Oct 11, Laura rated it it was amazing. It is very intense and hard core. It will literaly grip you and make you want to put it down because there is no way to get through it without being changed by it. If you are seriously committed to hearing what God wants you to do or what He is trying to tell you, then I highly recommend it.
If you are struggling with your committment, i still recommend it, but you will be faced abbruptly with "His Will". Jul 07, Laura rated it did not like it. Blackaby promises that believers today can hear the voice of God the way people did throughout the Bible, ex. Joseph, Moses, Daniel, Paul. And God will give specific instructions to each of us. Instead the epistles are full of exhortations to follow the commands of Christ which are clearly known to anyone who has access to the written Gospels. Blackaby says that, just like in the Old Testament, when God speaks today we will clearly know it is God.
This will be because we have such a deep relationship with God. Oct 16, David Brown rated it liked it. More importantly, only by following Christ as our example can we please God, and I believe that the only way to know how to be like Him is through careful and prayerful Bible study. Furthermore, I got the impression that Blackaby unequivocally believes that he indeed knew and consistently knows the will of God. He simply hoped that his actions were in line with what he knew from his studies of Scripture. And did he know the Bible? Years before his renowned political career, in a tiny one-room schoolhouse in Indiana, each student in turn regularly read from a single classroom Bible.
Read the words he spoke to a delegation of black Americans who had presented the President with a Bible in In regard to this Great Book, I have but to say, it is the best gift God has given to man. All the good the Savior gave to the world was communicated through this book. But for it we could not know right from wrong.
Could not His will have still been done if the outcome had been reversed? I believe that God can work his will in many ways, both through positive experiences and even through negative experiences resulting from the travesty of our human condition.

Jul 15, Crystal rated it it was amazing Recommends it for: Christians seeking to deepen their relationship with God.
This was a wonderful devotional--the best I've ever used. Henry Blackaby skillfully guides you through selected Scriptures and reflection questions to a deeper understanding of God, His word, and your faith in Him. I read this a long time ago--I actually want to get another copy of the workbook now, years later, and go through it all over again.
Who can't use a little help with their spiritual walk? Dec 28, Nathan Albright rated it really liked it Shelves: My roommate gave me this book because he somehow ended up with more than one copy of it, which happens from time to time with books. This particular book offers readers a course on experiencing God, and it is meant to be taken with a small group as part of a congregation.
The authors assume that those taking the course will be married and parents, which is more than a bit irksome for those of us who are neither. It can be said that the authors wish to deal with the subject of experiencing God My roommate gave me this book because he somehow ended up with more than one copy of it, which happens from time to time with books.
It can be said that the authors wish to deal with the subject of experiencing God through Bible study and obedience and are decidedly anti-mystical in their approach . As might be imagined, I am somewhat ambivalent to the authors' approach, not least because the authors seem to be Calvinist in their approach, caught in a tension between emphasizing God's initiative in calling people and the way that we should be rather than do and a need to emphasize obedience to God and action conducted in faith, something the authors fail to explain as deeply as they wish.
In about three hundred pages or so the authors manage to include twelve weeks of five lessons apiece as part of a course. Course topics include God's will, looking to God, God's pursuit of a "love relationship," God's invitation, God speaking in two parts! Each of the units ends with some notes and plenty of questions that come from a dvd that I did not have, which was a bit irksome.
The book also has a closing section with names, titles, and descriptions of God, some simple artwork throughout, and encouragement for the people taking the course to sign an Experiencing God group covenant! Throughout the book there are also a great many times where the author references how important the book was to other people, which is a bit off-putting and definitely humblebragging at best. All in all, my feelings about the book are mixed.
I am in favor of the authors' approach towards obedience and seeking to study the Bible, but find their viewing themselves as examples of faith and obedience to be rather irritating, especially considering their frequent use of the NIV translation rather than the superior M-text and their frequent references to the fictive and unbiblical Trinity.
In one drawing the authors even manage to claim that the Holy Spirit is a person, protesting a bit too strongly. This is a book that offers a great deal of encouragement to obey God, but the authors as usual are pretty unspecific about what that means. This is a book that tries to browbeat the reader into feeling bad about their depraved nature and making them distrust their own feelings and experiences while puffing up the pride and ego of the writers, which is all kinds of unsettling. In many areas, the authors are simply contradictory in their approaches, urging ecumenical harmony with other congregations while slamming unspecified 'cults.
Anyone who wants a deeper relationship with Christ, or who is seeking what He desires from them. This one changes lives forever.
The Grace Walk Experience: Enjoying Life the Way God Intends Workbook
This workbook right here is one of the most life-changing experiences of my young adult life so far. Myself and a small group from my Bible study decided to start this Bible study in November, We broke each unit up into two weeks. This study really opened my eyes to what the Lord desires from me. Not from my entire life as much as from day to day. This book list seven things to go with the study beginning w "Most Bible studies help people. This book list seven things to go with the study beginning with how God is always at work around us, how He desires a love relationship with us that is real and personal, how important and crucial it is to the Christian walk to obey Him.
I didn't agree with everything in this book. The author spoke about making a covenant relationship with church members and also had one or two statements that I didn't quite agree with. However, the majority of it I did. If you ever decide to read this amazing study, I strongly encourage that you do! However, it will have an impact on you. Henry and Richard Blackaby and Claude King don't really use nice little watered down words Are you willing to surrender all to God? If the Lord called you home this very second, could you stand before Him and truly say, "I love You with all my heart?
Oh, yes, these were all tough questions. But I encourage you Coming away from it, I can honestly say that I feel like I have a deeper relationship with God and not only that, but I have gained a whole new perspective on Him as my Lord and Sovereign King.
This study really helped me recognize His activity where He was working somewhere near me and, as it says so often in the pages, to join Him. Jun 23, Chris rated it it was ok Recommends it for: I mean, I am a Bible believing, Gospel teaching, praying, hands up worshiping, church going, holy spirit filled, child of the King, Jesus praising, woman of God who has gained much wisdom - saved by God's grace - and humblingly receiving mercy on a continual basis for I am a sinful human being. Having said that, what I got from Experiencing God Bible Study, is we don't matter one iota to God except that we bring others to Christ through our works.
If you go through spiritual boot camp in your life as a Christian, suffering, growing pains, lots of valleys, very few mountain tops, etc. That's all that matters. If you are disobedient, and don't do what he tells you to, he will use someone else to get the job done and then take everything away from you, never talk to you again, and basically throw you away. If God heals you, or blesses you in any way - it's only because He wants you to do some kind of big God-sized work. If you don't, you are useless. I'm not saying this is what the Bible says. I'm saying this is what I personally understood from this bible study.
Also, he is inconsistent in his teachings. Especially in explaining how we hear from God via the Holy Spirit. Which is a whole other rant I won't get into. See, I gave my life to the Lord in Near the beginning of the Millennium, I remember seeing on TBN, advertisements for a new approach for churches to grow. How they could follow a proven business plan, and it will make them rich.
This is when the emergent church as we know it today, all started. Then, you have some new-age teachings that have crept into the church as well. For anyone who has spent the bulk of their lives as a Christian the past 2 decades, has been taught a slant on the Bible that teaches what God can do for us - not what we can do for God. The good news about this Bible study, is it offers a needed balance.
