To George MacDonald, all of life's truth could be discovered in an extremely simple two step process: realizing who God is, then obeying Him. He offers a path of discovery to knowing the Father intimately, a path whose only door is obedience. Challenging his readers with the idea that true "knowledge" of God is far more than mental assent to gospel truth, he brings the reader to the feet of a wondrously loving Father who wants to be known in the heart.

Review 1 for Knowing the Heart of God
Best book I have read outside the Bible
Date:October 26, 2013
George MacDonald has radically transformed my view of God, causing me to understand that *everything* God does is done out of love. MacDonald also challenged me to take the commands of Jesus as if He really meant us to follow them, and to realize that the only path to spiritual growth is through obedience.

Review 2 for Knowing the Heart of God
Date:July 11, 2009
George MacDonald had tremendous insight into God's nature. This book is excerpts from his other writings that will renew your love for God, change your life, and deliver you from traditional and dead ways of thinking.Know in advance that MacDonald did not believe in an eternal hell; however, if you miss out on being awed and moved to holiness by the love of God because of a problem with his doctrine, you're making a bad mistake.
