Experiencing God in a Deeper Way It is always good to find a new author who writes in a genre that identifies with you and your passion. Jeff Deyo struck just that kind of chord with me. Jeff not only has a passion for worship but a gift of communication that resonates with the reader. “Awakening Pure Worship” describes a holistic approach to worship; a lifestyle of prayer which invites the presence of God into all areas of your life, biblical worship expressed in up to date terms for a modern age. Jeff uses a conversational style, reader-friendly, as he relates experiences of his spiritual journey; his authentic search for God. Jeff’s enthusiasm is contagious, as the words of his compelling call to worship appear to “jump off the page” in a celebration of unrestrained praise. Each chapter opens with a quote from a well-known pastor, author, or worship leader that establishes a desire on the part of the reader to linger in the presence of God, more profoundly, more fully, and more deeply. Jeff’s writing is refreshing, transformational; “Awakening Pure Worship” is a book for anyone seeking a fresh encounter with God in worship. I have personally been helped by Jeff’s writing and am asking Jesus to rekindle in me the desire to experience a growing, passionate, daily connection with Jesus God, by “cultivating a closer friendship with Him. A complimentary copy of this book was provided for review purposes. The opinions expressed are my own.
