Closer Than Your Skin by Susan D. Hill

Like the vast majority of Christians, author Susan Hill felt frustrated in her search for spiritual intimacy, unable to bridge the gap between knowing about God and personally knowing Him. Closer Than Your Skin traces her journey beyond the trappings of faith to an everyday companionship with God.

Through stories of her awe-inspiring experiences, Hill assures readers that knowing God is more than spiritual rhetoric; it’s a genuine, tangible reality when our eyes are open to his presence. With undeniable honesty, she vividly captures the experience of genuine intimacy with the Creator and reveals how to move beyond obstacles that stand in the way.

Readers will discover that divine encounters aren’t reserved for moments of crisis or the select few. Through these unforgettable insights and the interactive study guide, they will find that God is standing at the door, knocking, asking to be allowed in.

Jamie here: I tell you what, this book is something. I started dog earing pages so that I could share some of the insight this book contains, but I found that I was dog earing nearly every page. I was especially touched by the chapter titled "Never Good Enough; The Trap of Condemnation," although "Exposing Martha; A Lifestyle of Overdoing," had its place in my current situation. Though that will come as no surprise to those of you who have been hanging around here lately.

But she teaches by example that God is everywhere around us, speaking to us, showing Himself, revealing Himself, if only we'll look and listen.

And it is your lucky day. I have an extra to give away! But it will require a comment from you. I'll draw one winner and notify you in about a week, which reminds me, I have another drawing from last week to do. I'll try to post that tomorrow. Assuming that puke doesn't prohibit it.

Anyway, don't wait, hoping to win my copy, buy Closer Than Your Skin here.
