    Easily leads you into experiencing God

    What a precious book! Starting out by comparing God's grace to the relentless honeysuckle vine, at the end of each chapter, if you follow the book, you'll be led through a scripture meditation, then prayer, and into the very presence of God as you hear the Spirit speak truth and love to you. If you've ever had a hard time feeling God's Presence, this book, chapter by chapter, trains you and leads you to experience God's Presence. Very readable, very applicable, with true life stories that will blow you away. I confess, I haven't read all of it...yet. This is not a read once and pass on for me. It's a read once, put it away, read again.....and if you pass on books to friends, you'll want to buy them a copy and keep yours.

    Relentless Love: is a must read for all Christians. It is a hear

    Relentless Love: is a must read for all Christians. It is a heart warming lesson in the mercy of God that reminds us that it is through His great love, mercy and grace that we are saved. Mr. Gardner has done a wonderful job in reminding us that the very heart and character of God is mercy, and I have found the book to be very inspirational and straight to the point, and there is much t to be learned about God and His love for us.

    Touched by the Heart of God’s Unmerited Love

    “Relentless Love” encourages the reader to focus on three aspects of God’s mercy. Each chapter is filled with life-changing insights and instruction for reflection, prayer, and journaling. A series of spiritual growth exercises provide guidelines emphasizing:

    • God’s Mercy – Feel the Passion
    • God’s Mercy – Experience the Presence
    • God’s Mercy – See the Glory

    Thom Gardner understands the ministry of equipping and healing members of the Body of Christ. His writing is filled with examples from the Scriptures, rich in practical illustration, and powerful in application. I found myself engaged in the truths of God’s compassion, forgiveness, and his abundant blessings toward me as contemplated the nature of unmerited love.

    Whether describing the heart and character of God, His acts of mercy, or His understanding of our humanity, Gardner skillfully guides the reading into a new longing for the presence of God and a deep seated desire to see His glory. The contemporary stories illustrate the struggles and sinfulness of man and the power of God to meet us in our need, to provide redemption and renewal as His love and plan for each of us unfolds.

    “Relentless Love: Unfolding God’s Passion, Presence, and Glory” is a refreshing reminder of God’s unmerited love and mercy. Powerful, Christ centered writing!

    A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The views expressed are my own. As reviewed for Midwest Book Review.

    Excellent

    If you are looking to expand your relationship with the Lord this is the book. The book has spoke to my heart as I have spent time journaling and meditating on the Scriptures and reflecting on God's heart.
