Enjoying God ~ Book Review

Enjoying God
 By: R.C. Sproul
About the Book: 
Confused, angry, and hurt after the death of his father, a young R. C. Sproul began his personal search for ultimate truth with these piercing questions: Who are you, God? And why do you do the things you do? 

In Enjoying God, you'll journey with R. C. Sproul to discover the nature of God through his marvelous and often surprising attributes. In this warm, personal account, Dr. Sproul communicates deep wisdom of God as he shares his earnest, lifelong passion to know God and the profound hope he ultimately found in the attributes of God. He encourages each one of us to dig deep and seek the God who is alive, who is real, and who is love.

My Thoughts:
Enjoying God is the first book I've read by R.C. Sproul, and it is seriously so AMAZING!!!! (I know I say that about every book, but this one is now on the top of my "favorite books" list.) I loved how Mr. Sproul explored and scrutinized the many attributes of God. It is such a neat study and one I am excited to read again. Theologically, I found it to be very accurate and informative. Christians, both new and long-time, could learn a wealth of information about God, as Mr. Sproul shares, by studying His characteristics. There were just a few places that were a little difficult to understand, but re-reading the section a couple times helped. I would say that teenagers and adults would benefit most from reading this book, and would eminently endorse it. 

I received this book from Baker Books in exchange for an honest review. 

I hope you all have a blessed week. 

Rejoicing in the living, just, and faithful God of truth and love,

Psalm 89:1-8
I will sing of the mercies of the Lord for ever: with my mouth will I make known thy faithfulness to all generations. For I have said, Mercy shall be built up for ever: thy faithfulness shalt thou establish in the very heavens. I have made a covenant with my chosen, I have sworn unto David my servant,Thy seed will I stablish for ever; and build up thy throne to all generations. Selah. And the heavens shall praise thy wonders, O Lord: thy faithfulness also in the congregation of the saints. For who in the heaven can be compared unto the Lord? who among the sons of the mighty can be likened unto the Lord? God is greatly to be feared in the assembly of the saints, and to be had in reverence of all them that are about him. O Lord God of hosts, who is a strong Lord like unto thee? or to thy faithfulness round about thee?
