I love my relationship with God. He’s here with me in a very real way, and it’s amazing. But I never stop thirsting for more and looking for ways to make our relationship even more amazing. That’s why I was excited to see what Brad Huebert had to say in his new book, Go with the Flow.
I met Brad at a writer’s conference once, and he is a fun guy. But this is the first time I’ve had a chance to read his writing in book form, and I’m glad he invited me to give my honest review in exchange for the book.
The phrase “non-religious” on the cover drew me in immediately. I can’t stand books that try to boil God (or our relationship with Him) down into a formula or put Him in a box. Brad’s writing is easy on the brain, it reads more like a conversation than a sermon.
But despite the cover saying “non-religious”, it wasn’t long before Brad starts outlining this approach to quiet time straight out of the Old Testament!
WHAT? How much more “religious” can you get?!
There was a page or two when I just shook my head and thought, “Yeah, he’s flowing. But he’s flowing in a goldfish bowl, not a river.”
But hang in there – it gets better. This isn’t a formula. I love that we can mine the riches of God’s symbolism in the temple layout and find a structure from which to springboard our quiet time. tweet this
And that’s what it really is: just a springboard. From there, it’s “to infinity and beyond!”
You want go deeper with God?
Get serious and actually DO what Brad outlines here.
Do it for 2 weeks straight.
I believe you’ll never be the same.
The beauty of this little book is that whether you’ve been a Christian for 50 years or 5 days, you can do this. And because our God is alive and loves to meet with us, you can find Him in this simple yet rich approach and have a wonderful time. And because time with God inevitably brings transformation, you’ll be changed. For the better. And that’s why I gave the book 5 stars — I can recommend it without reservation and trust that God will do something amazing for every single person who actually applies it to his or her life.
