Overview

The Experiencing God ministry is even more vibrant today than when it began. As it continues to rise, and the world continues to change, the Experiencing God book has been revised and expanded with more than seventy percent of its material newly written.

A modern classic that has sold millions of copies worldwide, Experiencing God is based on seven Scriptural realities that teach us how to develop a true relationship with the Creator. By understanding how God is working through us even as we try to fathom His ways, we can begin to clearly kn

Editorial Reviews

Jon Kent Walker
Canadian pastor Henry Blackaby wrote Experiencing God, a 13-week interactive discipleship workbook, for use in the Southern Baptist Convention. Yet the 224-page course about knowing and doing the will of God is now being used in at least 17 other denominations, including Church of God, Assemblies of God, Roman Catholic, Vineyard, Mennonite, and Episcopal churches.

Blackaby, 63, says Christians often ask the wrong question: "What is God's will for my life?" What they should be asking, he says, is, "What is God's will?"

Blackaby developed the material through years of serving as a pastor in rural Canada. Often he had no resources and had to wait on God's provision. The work book, which emphasizes a deeper relationship with God, teaches that to know God intimately requires knowing his Word.

The Experiencing God, (LifeWay Christian Resources) work book has sold more than 2 million copies, plus another 2.5 million ancillary products, including a specialized Bible.

"It's popular because it's interactive and meets people where they are," LifeWay's Sam House says of the workbook. "Rather than emphasizing a process, Experiencing God emphasizes a relationship with God. Some people go through it two or three times and they get something new every time."

Prayer man: Blackaby wants to see revival.

What People are saying about this

Kristie Toniny
I had been churched all of my life, but I never truly understood what it meant to have a personal relationship with God until I went through this material. The whole concept of Experiencing God allows it to move easily from one denomination to another.
Warren D. Freiheit
Those in his church who have gone through the study have developed a deeper appreciation and understanding of God's work. — (Lutheran Pastor Warren D. Freiheit, Peoria, Illinois)

I am still reading Experiencing God. I am taking my time to read this book. It is so great and full of truth in knowing God personally and doing the Father's Will. If you are serious about having a relationship with the Father, having a better relationship with God, and being sure of His will,this is the book.

I am presently in the 5th week of the Experiencing God class. I cannot explain what a life changing experience I am having. I feel very strongly that every christian should take this class and experience God in such a way. Your life will never be the same! I had two dear friends tell me that it is life changing, and I just thought 'oh well', but, every day God reveals something new and wonderful to me. I am learning to listen and hear HIS voice.

I purchased this book last week and I have not been able to put it down. I have reread chapters to better comprehend the significance of the teaching here. This book has shown me so many errors of my ways and given me a sort of peace and tranquility, like never experienced before. This book, in my opinion, should be a required read for all Christians.

"Experiencing God" by Henry T. Blackaby and Claude V. King, is another in a series of Study Guides I have been thoroghly happy to have read. This guide takes the reader through a series of expectations that anyone who reads and studies the Bible through easy to understand stories and Scripture. This book allows the reader to first read the text, followed by going to their Bible and looking at the full Scripture being discussed. It also allows the reader to gain that fleeting knowledge and apply it to their everyday life. As this book begins, we are first introduced to the Chapter "Knowing God by Experience". One of my favorite quotes in this chapter is that of the Lord as Provider. "We can know about God as a Provider as we read the story of Abraham. But we really come to know God as Provider when we experience Him providing something for our lives." Just think, as we experience God, in the truest sense, we develop a closer relationship with God. He does provide. "Experiencing God" is yet another selection that should be part of the Christen Library. Thank you Blackaby and King for putting together this realistic and true information.
