Publisher's Summary

In Drawing Near, John Bevere invites listeners to explore a life of intimacy with God. Emphasizing the need for obedience, he urges us to practice - just as we would practice anything we hope to improve - our communication with the Holy Spirit. Understanding that prayer is a dialogue, not a monologue, Bevere encourages us to listen at the Father's feet. Study questions in each chapter offer opportunity for reflection, and a "how to draw near to God" section offers practical steps toward developing true intimacy with him.

Prequel to Your Greatest Love Story

DEFINITE READ IN MY LIST OF OVER 200 books... in my top third & of my new favorite author: having read three of his other books prior to this one. Imagine a love story written about you & it’s the greatest ever... this book CAN be the story before that one.

Imagine the greatest times you’ve ever said “me too” to something truly awesome that someone else has said: this book can be that for you too.

I prefer this book more than JB’s Pathway to His Presence, but I still recommend that one too.

Great material! Spiritually uplifting :)

Good audio even though I'm used to listening to the actual author's voice. Definitely a book to take slowly and soak in a chapter at a time. Will be rereading this soon.

Beautifully written and inspirational!

Great for developing a more intimate and intent relationship with the Most High God! Backed with scripture and real life events to support the premise of the book.

It dies exactly what it says on the tin if you will let it.

This book was a great blessing an a source of direction and stillness when I really needed it. I repeated chapters over and over in my first read, it was so gripping and made plain revelation that had been there all along but I’d either forgotten or simply never noticed before.

I’ve since re-listened several times and will keep doing so until it becomes a part of me.

A blessed guide to getting near to the Lord

I've been looking for something to help me get to the next level in my faith. I prayed into it and came across this book. It has given me just what I needed at the right time.
I'd recommend it to anyone who is seriously looking to draw near to the Lord. Very much Holy Spirit led.

Solid teaching from John Bevere

John Bevere never shirks from saying what needs to be said and this book is no exception. The narrator is very good. No over acting. No weird pronunciations as in one book I listened to. In short, No distractions. Full of helpful examples John teaches how we can achieve intimacy with God, and also why we fail to achieve intimacy with the one we are supposed to love most of all. Highly recommend. I want to listen to it again.
