Book Recommendation

I have just finished The God Who Draws Near by Michael Haykin. I don't have the time to post a full review. However, I would highly recommend it. The subtitle, "An introduction to biblical spirituality" explains the heart of this work.

Many of us have steered clear of the word 'spirituality' because of New Age misuse of this word. The author lays out a biblical foundation that will help clarify what it truly means to be spiritual as a Christian. This is a great read for new believers as well as more mature Christians. Haykin has a way of weaving church history and key historical figures into the book too. The examples of the Puritans are especially encouraging and convicting.

When you buy this book you might want to get two. You'll want to give one away, it's that good.
