Close Enough To Hear God Breathe
I had never read anything by Greg Paul, so wasn't sure what to expect in his book, "Close Enough to Hear God Breathe". I was pleasantly surprised at this book! Greg Paul does a wonderful job of relaying bible stories, as well as his own personal experiences wit and realism. Paul tells stories of his own intimacy with God, which make the reader yearn for that same intimate experience with our Creator. One of my favorite stories Paul tells in this book is of the hard time he went through when his father passed away. I thought it was a true testament to his intimate relationship with God that he was able to find a sort of sweet contentment even in the tragic loss of his father.
"Close Enough to Hear God Breathe" tells stories of hard times as well as good times, and how God has stayed faithful and intimate with his children through both. I think that it's important to remember that even when things are hard, it doesn't mean that God has forsaken us. Building that intimate foundation with the Creator is an essential part of Christian living, and I think that Greg Paul does a wonderful job of illustrating that concept with his book. It's a great read, and I wouldn't hesitate to get any other books from Greg Paul. His writing style draws you in, and you don't want to put the book down until you get through the whole thing. Loved it!
