Overview

In your heart you feel the longing—an emptiness that can’t be satisfied by food, or friendships, or entertainment, or success, or anything this world can offer. Only God can fill the void. More than you know, you hunger for God. In Hungry for God, critically acclaimed author Margaret Feinberg puts you in touch with your desire for intimacy with your Creator and what it takes to find fulfillment. Feinberg writes, “The sound of his voice is spiritual nourishment, his voice a banquet for my soul—every syllable a tasty morsel, every expression flavored with love.” With rare insight into the Scriptures, human nature, and the heart of God, Feinberg invites you to discover the ways in which God speaks to you not from the top of some holy mountain, but in the midst of your everyday affairs. Learning to hear God’s voice isn’t as much a destination as it is a journey, and if you travel far enough, you’ll find yourself abiding in the presence of God. Passionate, honest, and filled with wisdom and inspiration, Hungry for God will help you cultivate the holy intimacy your spirit craves.

Made me wonder how I managed to "box" God in... This book helped me hear and see God more than I ever have. He is the only thing that will fill that emptiness inside us that we try to fill with technology, business, work, relationships, food, etc.

When I discovered this book was available for a blogger review, I hopped on the first chance I had to get a copy. It sat on my shelf, patiently waiting in line, while I finished up a couple of other books ahead of it. I am glad I saved it for when I did, for I read it at the perfect time for my life. God has this very cool way of bringing books into my life at the exact moment I need them - and this book is one I won't soon forget. Margaret is candid throughout this book, revealing her own moments where she struggled to know God so intimately that she came to deeply hunger for Him. She craved to have Him be her fulfillment, and through many trials and tribulations - as well as the best moments she could experience - she has found time and time again that God is always there to satiate her hunger. To hunger for Him, is to long to know God in a deep and intimate way. This is the whole premise of this whole book. As you chomp through it, page by page, morsel by morsel, you find yet another satisfying bite that just fills you up, reminding you to never give up in the pursuit of knowing God intimately in your life. She reveals the truths of how many people throughout scripture always yearned to know God in deep ways, and through good times and bad, they found Him in the most obscure areas; usually in the quietness of the heart, and the pains of life. I cannot recommend this book enough to folks out there who have been trying to find out who God is in their own personal lives, and how He can relate (and speak) to them in such intimate ways. As a lifelong seeker of God myself, I can honestly say others - who have the same deep, innate desire (hunger) to know God in such a personal way as I do - won't walk away on an empty stomach (heart) with this book. --------- Disclosure of Material Connection: I received one or more of the products or services mentioned above for free from Zondervan Publishers in the hope that I would mention it on my blog.

A Phone Tree Book Review ~ Hungry for God by Margaret Feinberg is a deeply thought-provoking book that encourages the believer to learn how to hear the voice of God in the ordinary and the everyday. From the first page of this book to the last, I found myself eager to learn how I could grasp more and more of God. I wanted to learn how to immediately apply the countless suggestions mentioned by Ms. Feinberg. I wanted to begin seeing the Kairos in my everyday existence, as well as begin "hearing" the language of God. In truth, Ms. Feinberg's book challenged me to stretch myself a bit. There were parts of her book that moved away from the conservative or rather traditional views so familiar to many Christians. Still, her insight was refreshing and her personal stories were enchanting. I would absolutely recommend this book as a "must read." It will provide much food for thought and influence the reader to look beyond the immediate and into the divine.

Margaret Feinberg takes us on a spiritual journey that simply allows us to ask ourselves, "How can we find God?" Certainly this is a question that nearly all of us would love to answer. Personally speaking, I know there have been countless occasions when I wished God would just speak to me directly, rather than forcing me to go to extremes to simply find out what He is supposed to be saying to me in any and all circumstances. Mrs. Feinberg weaves her own personal life experiences to show us how we can seek the heart of God. The book is well written, and is easy to read through. This is truly for the average laymen to grasp and is simple enough for anyone to pick up and read through in short order. The answer to the question of how do we hear from God is not necessarily answered in this book directly, but in essence, it actually is. What we should glean from this book is that God speaks to each of us in our own unique way. This is perhaps the grandest mystery of life. We all want God to shout it through the loudspeakers what our next move should be, but ultimately what Mrs. Feinberg is telling us is, "If you seek out God, He will speak to you in a way that is unique to you, and you alone." So pick up a copy of this little gem, and then put the lessons into practice in your own life, in your own way. This book is a jumping off point to drawing you closer to the heart of God. And that is ultimately beneficial to us all. Disclaimer: I received a free copy of this book from Zondervan, in exchange for this review.

Written in only six chapters, Margaret Feinberg shows us how to be spiritually hungry for God and then how to recognize and prepare for it on a daily basis. The chapters, "Unforgettable Invitation," "Kairos Moments," "Shaped by God's Voice," Readiness," "The Language of God," and "Have You Heard?" are the different ways in which we need to listen and observe God on a daily basis. From the back of the book: "Learning to hear God's voice isn't as much a destination as it is a journey and if you travel far enough, you'll find yourself abiding in the presence of God." About the author- Margaret Feinberg lives in Colorado with her husband and dog. She is a writer and speaker and has been named on of the "Thirty Emerging Voices" of Christian leaders by Charisma magazine. My thoughts- My favorite chapter was, "The Language of God." This chapter was divided up into the many ways that God speaks to us. I enjoyed reading Margaret Feinberg's reflections and learning the many ways that God communicates with us if we are willing to listen. I thought that "God Thoughts" and "Nature" were the best ones, because to me, they are two of the more obvious ones that may get over looked in our daily life. To get thoughts from God we need to pray, be quiet and listen. God whispers, so we need to listen for the quiet words. Going outside and being a part of nature is also a way that we can observe the awesomeness of God. It doesn't need to be in a park or in your yard, you can just look out the window and observe. Would I recommend? Yes, I would highly recommend this book by Margaret Feinberg, because we need to know how to satisfy our spiritual hunger and this book can help us do that.
