Walking With God
I never read self-help books. Not for me, no thanks. That type of thing strikes me as somehow… contrived, maybe? Therefore the prospect of reviewing what is ostensibly a religious self-help book seems both a wee bit pompous and a wee bit sad. I needed something to latch onto, something to steady a world that was spinning out of control.
So what is this book about, you ask? Eldredge presents the book as almost a personal journal, a series of anecdotes and personal recollections over the course of a year.
1. Walk with your head held high
He then extrapolates those events into guidance about how to communicate with and find guidance from God in a variety of ways. Stuff like asking God what you should do in a given situation, seeking His counsel for the direction of your life, and really listening to the response.
Sounds crazy, right? My version of Christianity was a series of texts to be studied, interpreted sometimes in very non-standard ways, I might add , and codified into a code of beliefs, not a personal relationship with the almighty creator of the universe. That all changed after Walking with God. He cautions people against inserting what they want to hear in the space in their minds and using that to justify whatever it is they want.
Ugh… did that come off as sappy as I think I did? Dead puppies. Whether you believe in a higher power or not, oftentimes pain is the stimulus for some of the most fundamental changes in our lives.
You can either let that pain consume you or never learn your lesson from said pain or you can grow from it, becoming stronger, more resilient, and alter your life for the better. Walking with God also describes a technique for asking God what scripture to read. It takes a lot of trust to do a thing like that, but I guess the whole religion takes a lot of trust or belief, if you prefer in the first place.
I call bullshit on that one. Know what I mean?

Based upon that criteria, you could make the case that it deserves a five-star rating. But considering some of the junk I had to ditch along the way, five sounds a bit excessive. Four, on the other hand, sounds just right. View all 8 comments. Aug 06, Paul Alkazraji rated it it was amazing. It begins with laying out the Biblical case for the availability, and desirability, of an intimate personal relationship with the Lord.
Eldredge is a very well-read writer with a knowledge of literature, and film, that add other layers of interest to his work. Yet there is a pick-up-truck-loving, outdoorsy manliness about him that gives him an everyman accessibility as he watches hawks and scouts for elk with his boys on a Colorado ranch. By this reviewer:. Feb 13, Kevin Beasley rated it really liked it. I was one who felt like I arrived to life "20 minutes late". John Eldredge talks about people like me in his original work with Brent Curtis Maybe you've felt that way too.
You know, like when you show up for a movie and you know there's a fair share of action and adventure, but you don't quite know exactly what the storyline is. I became a fan of Eldredge the day I first picked up that book and I've remained a fan througout the release of "The Journey of Desire", "Wild I was one who felt like I arrived to life "20 minutes late". I became a fan of Eldredge the day I first picked up that book and I've remained a fan througout the release of "The Journey of Desire", "Wild at Hear" and others.
Now he has released his next installment A departure from his previous style of laying a foundation and building upon the principles. In his latest book, John takes a beautiful stab at raw transparency. As he opens his personal journals we learn what it means for John to walk one year with God. He holds little back as he shares with us some personal struggles and a pursuit to listen to the "still small voice" of God.
If you find spiritual warfare to be uncomfortable, you may not like this book. John shares his experience and journey through praying intentional prayers against the enemy and his forces. Some of those stories were a little much for me, but the overall content was excellent. Since I finished this book, I have a totally new perspective on listening to and actually hearing the voice of God as He directs us in every aspect of our daily lives.
I highly recommend a read through this book! Sep 19, Cristine Braddy rated it really liked it.

As usual in a book like this, there were things I agreed with and things I disagreed with. But what I loved was his honesty and the challenge to see the spiritual in my everyday life. Jun 02, Ben rated it it was amazing.
