Life in the Presence of God

Life in the Presence of God
By Kenneth Boa
Publisher: InterVarsity Press
Genre: Christian Living
Release Date: 11/2017

The author, a veteran writer and practitioner of spiritual discipline and formation, says that if there’s a secret to practicing the Lord’s presence, it’s that people who live consistently in God’s presence know that the Christian life means abiding in Christ.

Boa says we need to take our life with God into all aspects.

In the first section of the book, Boa surveys the Bible to see what it says about living in God’s presence. The second part, with twice as many chapters as the first, covers the why and how of practicing the presence of God, including insights from neuroscience as well as real-life examples.

Readers will come away with practical tips for increasing their practice of God’s presence. Boa is a fellow traveler, and readers will feel that, along with a strong dose of encouragement. This book should resonate with believers of every age and level of maturity. Recommended.
