Overview

Falling in love is one of life’s greatest joys.
So imagine the endless joy of falling head over heels for God.

Falling in love is one of the most magnificent experiences of human life. Remember what it feels like? How it happens? You spend time with that special someone, get to know each other, and then one day find yourselves so intimately connected it is as though your souls have become intertwined.

Compare that experience with your current relationship with God. Why doesn’t it feel just as passionate, just as wonderful? Gary Moon believes it can.

If you’re not head over heels in love with God, you’re missing out on an incredible experience–but you’re not without hope. Falling for God will inspire you to pursue a passionate, intimate relationship with a God who–even though he doesn’t need anything from you–wants more than anything to be united with you.

Through Bible study, personal meditation, and classic spiritual exercises, you’ll discover how to experience this loving connection with the lover of your soul. The journey will take you through honest conversation and active communion to a deeper experience of intimate union with God. Falling for God will move you to embrace an all-out passion for joyful and abundant living.

Editorial Reviews

From the Publisher
“Gary Moon writes with a combination of thoughtfulness, guidance, and joy that will serve every reader. He has taken the deepest longing of the soul and the wisdom of great minds from past centuries and woven them in a way that is accessible and helpful to any who want to grow close to God.”
–JOHN ORTBERG, teaching pastor of Menlo Park Presbyterian Church, Menlo Park, California, and author of Everybody’s Normal Till You Get to Know Them

“Gary’s use of story, imagery, and an uncommon vocabulary masterfully stirs our heart’s hunger for God Himself. He also gives us practical ways to revel in the love of our ever-pursuing God. He has encouraged me to listen anew to the voice of my Father.”
–DIANE LANGBERG, PH.D., psychologist and author of Counseling Survivors of Sexual Abuse and On the Threshold of Hope

“Not many books stir hope that my appetite for God can actually be satisfied in this crazy, disappointing world. Falling for God does. In these well-written pages, Gary offers profound, simple, practical, and warm companionship on the journey that matters most.”
–LARRY CRABB, speaker, psychologist, author of The Pressure’s Off,
and founder of New Way Ministries

“With heart-stopping insights, practical suggestions, and sly wit, Gary Moon draws readers toward Christ so powerfully we long to bow our hearts in worship. Falling for God is destined to become a classic on spiritual formation.”
–SANDRA D. WILSON, PH.D., seminary professor and author of Into Abba’s Arms

“Who could resist falling for God when Christian spirituality is properly understood as a love affair of cosmic proportions! If your heart longs for Perfect Love, this book is for you. It speaks to head, heart, and body as all are involved in the transforming romance that God offers.”
–DAVID G. BENNER, PH.D., C.PSYCH., Distinguished Professor of Psychology and Spirituality, Psychological Studies Institute in Atlanta
