Experiencing God has ratings and reviews. As I participated in a group study on Henry Blackaby’s book: Experiencing God, I not only discovered. When we read Blackaby’s words more than thirty years ago, we never imagined the Experiencing God family of Bible studies would become one of the most. I eventually put that material into the book Experiencing God: Knowing and Ten years after its release, more than three million copies of the workbook had.

I will do this again. I’m not saying this is what the Bible says. Where others say, “the Lord helps those who help themselves,” Blackaby answers that God often does nothing until His people can “cease striving” and rest in Him.

Experiencing God: Knowing and Doing the Will of God, Workbook by Henry T. Blackaby

I’ve bought the day-by-day devotional book, it was so helpful, as I’d like to be reminded every day of this book. I stepped out in faith, and I have the same fundamental experiences when face to face with God in my life with God He seems to give the impression that only if we move into international business, large evangelism campaigns and full time paid ministry are we really following God.

Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic.

This is an excellent book and I cannot recommend it too highly. This is a book that tries to browbeat the reader into feeling bad about their depraved nature and making them distrust their own feelings and experiences while puffing up the pride and ego of the writers, which is all kinds of unsettling.

This makes the entire book built on a faulty interpretation of an important passage that is about the trinitarian nature of God and not about how the Christian finds God’s will. Profound in my spiritual development. Oh, yes, these were all tough questions. Well the Lord had other plans for me my neighbors were Christians and they had a friend that played guitar it was the guitar that attracted me to church.

The workbook is probably better because it is so engaging. Blackaby does a wonderful job at making sure the reader understands that this whole following God thing is not easy and that you experiecing run into hardship and obstacles as you try to follow His will for your life.

I’m glad they made a ‘book’ version. Years before his renowned political career, in a tiny one-room schoolhouse in Indiana, each student in turn regularly read from a single classroom Bible. How can such a popular book be so wrong?

It takes commitment to get the true benefit, but is well worth the effort. I agree with Blackaby’s general premises, that we need to do a better job of listening to God through prayer and reading. The overall theme of the book is to pay attention to how God could be working around you and how He wants you to be part of that.

See, I gave my life to the Lord in It is interesting to think that God will only use us in certain ways, because those ways are founded on our current skill set. I disagree that we can make the conclusion that facing challenges in life is evidence that we are out of step with God. I wish he would have gone into this a little more but he does an overall good job of covering it.

To see what your friends thought of this book, please sign up. So while I thought it was solid on its principles, the tone of the book and the examples it gave slightly diminished its value in my eyes.


If the Lord called you home this very second, could you stand before Him and truly say, “I love You with all my heart? My roommate gave me this book because he somehow ended up with more than one copy of it, which happens from time to time with books.

I recommend this to all new born again Christians that need to develop a strong love and relationship with God.

Of course, Blackaby provides a tremendous amount of scriptural support for his position, wprkbook that blakcaby also very helpful. The author was so right, I really experienced God experiecing ways that I hadn’t before while reading this book. It is very intense and hard core. And did he know the Bible? Storms may rage around you, but as long as you have God in your sight, you’ll stay the course.

Even in trying to be humble at one point he says that God had to look high and low for someone as ordinary as me. He will lead you provided you are doing the When I read this the first time I was so excited to find someone who believed exactly as I did about the way God speaks to His people.

Other than the Bible itself, which always always always has primacy as God’s word to humanity, this book has helped me the most in connecting with God in an intimate and personal relationship.

How often have I done this?
