my review....

James W. Goll has written a book that fairly breathes with God's spirit, and every time I finished a chapter I felt like I had moved closer to God's heart. The book is a very well-written, practical, and surprisingly moving guide for those seeking greater intimacy with God, and those seeking to understand the prophetic gift and how to hear God's voice. The book is designed to be read one day at a time over a 21 day period, and those who follow this plan will be led step by step into a closer relationship with Jesus. I have read a number of different books on spiritual gifts, and what stands out in this book is the wonderful focus on knowing Jesus as lover of our soul, as our best friend, prior to ever trying to use the spiritual gifts he has given us. When it comes to the gift of prophecy, I also appreciate the hands-on advice that he gives for those who want to grow in their gifting, with a constant focus on knowing the author and perfecter of our faith ever more intimately.

This book is one that I will no doubt be reading over and over during the coming years, and I am so glad that I took a chance on diving into a book by an author I've never before read. Those who are interested in learning more about the gift of prophecy, or who just want to grow closer to God and learn to hear his voice more clearly, should plan on getting a copy of this book. 4.5 out of 5 stars.
