I must admit- I enjoy reading Christian non-fiction. I have so many wonderful books! Yet I do not value all of them the same, as some Christian non-fiction can be hit and miss. That is why I was pleasantly surprised when With: Reimagining The Way You Relate to God sky-rocketed to the top of the list of my favorite books even before I had gone through more than a few chapters. With addresses some concerns about Christianity that I feel often are not well-addressed or discussed in most circles. This makes this book a novelty in some of its approach to relating to God.
The purpose of the book is to give a clearer picture of what it means to live “with”, or “alongside” God- not just over, from, for and under. The book goes into detail about what each of the postures in relation to God misunderstand about God and His nature. I believe that this book will likely challenge you and compel you to re-evaluate the way that you relate to God. I feel that it has brought me closer to God. The content of the book is not complex, and neither is its message of living “with” God. Yet somehow the author succeeds in creating a compelling case for why many of us miss out on some of the rewarding experience of living alongside our Creator, and how we can better understand and live out this idea.
Disclosure: BookSneeze provided me with a complementary copy of With: Reimagining The Way You Relate to God by Skye Jethani in return for my honest review.
