Amazing Encounters With God / Review

Author: Clayton King
Paperback: 192 pages
Publisher: Harvest House Publishers
Language: English
ISBN-10: 0736937765

Book Description:
Mac Powell of Third Day called Clayton King’s previous book, Dying to Live, “A must-read.” An evangelist and missionary, Clayton has spoken to millions, including hundreds of thousands in the teen-to-thirties age group in the U.S.

Through his firsthand stories in Amazing Encounters with God, believers will see freshly that they can step back and be amazed by God…as Clayton is after poking around in a dark church basement; meeting a drunken millionaire on an airplane; considering a horse sticking his head through barbed wire; having a surprise encounter with the IRS; seeing a baby born dead…and God’s credibility in a whole village start to crumble.

A great reminder that God speaks through ordinary occurrences, using ordinary things to reveal Himself.

“He is still close, maybe as close as the next person you meet, the next song you hear, or the next conversation you have.”

My Review:
Do you want to meet God today? Clayton King takes us to a place we rarely enter...God's presence, and reminds us that we are in His space at any given moment; that He is there at the most common events; that He is there when we don't realize it. God is everywhere in our world and in our personal lives. We can commune with him if we open our spiritual ears, eyes, and hearts to His existence. Each moment of our life can become a sacred moment when we learn to recognize Him. He is waiting.

Amazing Encounters With God (Stories to Open Your Eyes to His Power) is well-written and inspiring. It will take you on a grand adventure and sit your heart in the providence of God. Highly recommended.
