My review:

I really enjoyed this book and felt it had a lot of great information.  I loved how it was pointed out that God desires to have a personal relationship with you and that He pursues you and rejoices over you!  He talks about how we have to make spending time with God a priority, no matter how busy we are.  Only we can make that decision and we have to remember that that's the most important thing, not doing good works or being busy for the Lord.  I really enjoyed the many word studies and how a verse's meaning would become incredibly clear after you see the deeper meaning in which Hebrew or Greek word was used.  He used many personal stories and many Biblical ones as well.  The chapters averaged about 6-7 pages; this would work really well for a devotional.  This book was convicting in a good way, where you are determined to change because you're looking forward to spending time with God, not out of guilt.  The way Dutch described his relationship with God was wonderful and something we can all have!  I highly recommend this book!

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