    Abide in Me

    I first came across this book over 15 years ago - I was on the fast track going no where. From the very first page I read; I was profoundly struck with its message. As I opened my heart to the spiritual messages and my ears to the words of wisdom; this book has made a miraculous difference in my life. I have continued to purchase copies over the years for my friends and loved ones. Who is to say that the LORD does not reach out and whisper words of grace today? (Isaish 30:21)/(Psalms 32:8) ¿As the Father loved Me, I also have loved you, abide in My love¿ (John 15:9) This book will help you abide in His love. Words cannot describe the beauty of the spiritual connection this book can inspire.

    I was privy to read portions of this book before it was readily available in the states at that time, I wrote the pages down so I could view the words at my convenience. Since 1987, I have been giving God Calling books away to any one that had a personal problem or spiritual need. Every time, I have been blessed by their personal gratification from their own experience when reading this book. I have read this book God Calling daily, for over 15 years, and have always been Blessed each time with something new and spiritually fulfilling. I feel a renewed personal relationship to Jesus, a One on one Guiding me or teaching me or comforting me when no one else can when I am reading this book. The purpose of my giving the book to others, friends as well as strangers, is to give the spiritual insight and comfort that I could never give. A personal exceptional and excellent spiritual healing and spiritual intervention from the Divine. Take a look and read this book in a quiet place when feeling down or even when you are joyful and experience what I have had the pleasure to encounter for over 15 years. Be Blessed

    In 1986, my husband gave this devotional book to me as a 'little surprise'. It has been the most inspiring devotional book I have ever used. I read the words and hear Christ's loving voice talking directly to me. It is amazing how each day the words are the right words I need to hear. The pages in my book are worn and torn; but, it still shares the message of our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. I pray it will bless you too.

    This book should concern Christians

    I bought this book on the recommendation of a respected Christian friend but became very concerned about the books content when I read the following quote of one of the 'two listeners' included in the preface: 'We were being taught, trained and encouraged day by day by HIM personally, when millions of souls, far worthier, had to be content with guidance from the Bible, sermons, their churches, books and other sources.' 'So to us this book, which we believe has been guided by our Lord Himself, is no ordinary book.' I then read some of the passages in the body of the book and noticed that they were all written in the first person as if Christ himself were saying the words. The publisher even claims in the synopsis of this book that these are the words of Jesus Christ. I would urge any discerning Christian to read a review of this book by the Christian Research Journal, Summer 1988, Volume 11, Number 1, page 29. Following are a few excerpts from the review. 'There is no denying that many statements in the book are inspiring. Scripture is often quoted in God Calling. But cultic literature often quotes Scripture. Reading Scripture wherever it may be found and being blessed by it does not automatically legitimize the publication in which it is included.' The review also states that if you believe the comments of the anonymous author that I included above then....'the implications are immense: 1)Personal guidance is better than the Bible. 2)God Calling has more actual words of Christ than the Bible. 3)Extrabiblical revelation is being received today.' I would urge you to read this review in it's entirety before using this book as a devotional or recommending it to friends and family.
