About the book:

God Is Closer Than You Might ThinkA thin curtain separates the physical world from the unseen spiritual realm. And sometimes God pulls it back to give us a glimpse of the other side. In Heaven Touching Earth, ordinary people share more than forty all-new stories of miracles, healing, divine provision and protection, and encounters with angels and demons.

These true, uplifting stories will remind you that even when you don't see obvious evidence of God at work in your life or get quick answers to prayer, there is a loving Father who protects and provides and is always working on your behalf in the invisible realm.

Whether you're simply curious about the supernatural world or longing for a fresh experience of God's presence, these inspiring stories will touch your heart and strengthen your faith in the God of miracles.

My review:

This was such an encouraging book that I did not want to put down!  I liked the variety of stories, from seeing angels to being healed to dealing with spiritual warfare; there was never a dull moment and I wasn't sure what would happen next!  Some of the stories brought tears to my eyes and most made me rejoice!  One of the stories that really stuck out for me was about a couple women who were praying for another woman and realized she was possessed by an evil spirit.  I can't imagine how scary that must have been, but she was delivered!  Even though God tells us He is always with his people, it's nice to have a reminder now and then, as the people in these stories can attest to personally, and we can be encouraged as we read these stories.  Sometimes it can be easy to question why God doesn't share this type of experience with all believers, but He is God and we are not and our role is to trust Him, no matter what.  He has a purpose for it and a plan.  This wasn't a reward because these people were superspiritual or church leaders, as the editor points out; they were just ordinary believers who prayed and asked for help.  Who knows, maybe one day something like this will happen to you!  I love books like this and it did not disappoint.  I highly recommend it!

I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.
