Knowing the Heart of God presents MacDonald's philosophy for discovering life's great truths.

The main idea that permeates this entire book is that obedience comes before understanding. Men seek to understand God reather than obey Him when Obeying Him is the only way to understand. This book will provide you with new inspiration- not to understand God more, but to obey Him more. This book also serves as a good resource for learning about God's love. One of McDonald's favorite topics is the inexorable love of God, and the editor of this book did not abandon that subject. Anyone who finds solely non-fiction books too dry should try this book. The editor combines selections from McDonald's sermons, his fiction, and his poetry. George McDonald himself would be pleased with the selections printed in this book.Was this review helpful?

A constant flow of ideas, encouragement, and insights into faith's journey. The editor co-mingles essays, poems, and book excerpts from MacDonald, clustered around Biblical theme's and texts. I used this as a study guide, devotional resource, and pure pleasure reading. Give yourself this gift -- a book full of good writing, powerful intellect, and spiritual hope for daily life.Was this review helpful? Yes NoThank you for your feedback.
