God has communicated with his people throughout the ages in many ways. Adam and Eve encountered him directly in the Garden of Eden, Teresa of Avila experienced him through visions, and Francis of Assisi heard his voice in nature. Connecting with God gives practical advice for connecting on a deeply personal level with God. It uncovers new places to look for God, while providing reflection questions and activities to reinvigorate communication with God in such traditional areas as prayer and Bible study. Divided into twelve chapters conveniently organized for individual or group study, each section explores a different area in which you can deepen your communion with God. A combination of readings from Scripture as well as classic and contemporary works of spirituality, reflection questions, exercises, and activities help prompt true spiritual growth.

Review 1 for Connecting With God: A Spiritual Formation Guide
Date:March 20, 2009
We are using this book for a Bible study, one lesson per week at our church. We have almost finished. I highly recommend this book for group study. It would be okay for individuals but you would miss out on conversation stimulated by the discussion questions. I am impressed at the improvement in my nearness to God because of this study. The authors go through about a dozen ways we connect with God: scripture, prayer, silence, other people, visions, angels, wrestling, and a few more. Some, such as visions and angles we have no control over. As an engineer, I initially looked upon some of the concepts as a little hokey. But, I was wrong. They all seem to work in their own way. I wish someone had introduced me to this much earlier in life. It should be an early part of a new Christian's orientation to the Faith.
