Reviewed by Michelle Stanley for Readers' Favorite How well do you know God? Imagine God is a Christian guide by Rick Pribell. The primary goal for writing this handbook is to teach people how to become closer to God. It can also be used as a study guide. Developing a positive and everlasting relationship with Him will ensure our happiness and spiritual well-being. In order to achieve this, we mustn’t worship false idols. Obeying the Ten Commandments and emulating God’s character are other steps to follow. Evil and sin will control our lives if we abandon Him. Learning to control emotions and choosing our reactions can enable the right choices. Seeking His forgiveness is important; are you forgiving too? The path to salvation isn’t easy but it can be rewarding. Rick Pribell describes his own past experiences when he started several business ventures, convinced that making money made him happier. When these failed, he realized that not practicing his faith regularly was the main cause of failure and his misery. Reconnecting to God changed his life. The inspiration to write Imagine God came when Rick Pribell was seriously ill. Being sick made him reflective and he decided to create a handbook that could be a step-to-step guide to Christian living. The main objectives are to recognize God, building a better relationship with Him while sharing His love with others. Know why you are created in His image. Learn how to deal with problems. Bible scripture examples are included in each chapter to enhance the passages. Imagine God is a motivational and helpful counseling handbook that can be used personally or in Bible studies.

An inspiring, unifying message for us all, about our God. I’ve read a lot of Christian books, and this book stands above the stack, because it has a very unique message. Pribell offers us his insight into how we are all, as humans, created in God’s image. Using our emotions and the way we process and think, he brings us into a deeper understand of how God must think and feel, making Him more real to us. After all, our God only wants a relationship with us, and this book shows us how that’s possible. Pribell didn’t come to his faith easily. Born and raised Jewish, accepting Jesus was against everything he was taught. Living a prosperous life working with a successful packaging export distribution business and dabbling in real estate wasn’t enough. He wanted more out of life and knew there was something missing. His travels around the world taught him what it was. Then, in 2015, a life-altering heart attack made him look deeper. The result is an amazing book filled with scripture verses, a personal story, and a very inspiring photograph. If you want to know God more intimately, or if you are searching to fill that thirst for “something more” that you can’t quite quench, this book has the answers. We are indeed created in God’s image, and that alone gives us grounds for praise. Well-grounded in scripture, short and concise, this book offers the hope and encouragement we all need to embrace the life we were meant to live. Highly recommended.

What is your relationship with God and how can you use life examples to improve your understanding, connection and relationship to Him? These questions are at the core of “Imagine God” by Rick Pribell. As he writes in the preface, “The purpose of this book is to share a simple but powerful revelation exposing how we can begin to know God.” Pribell writes that his goal is for this revelation “to become a branch of hope for you to grab, to pull yourself up by” as you pursue a genuine, deep and real understanding of God. Regardless of your faith, this book uses real-life situations to show how God works through you and in you. It’s a concise primer on faith and constantly challenges the reader to “find yourself closer to Him.” And it can also be used as an “effective workbook for introspective study.” Divided into four parts, each chapter is followed with relevant gospel passages to enlighten and inspire, but also to confirm the author’s assertations. Pribell argues that we were all created with the ability to know God intimately, by being created “in His own image”. Using real-life circumstances and situations, Pribell demonstrates how we are able to relate to God by reflecting on our emotional responses, enabling us to know him in a much deeper and more personal way. Rick suggests a number of insightful questions you might ask yourself at various points in your journey. In the third part of the book the author outlines the steps one might take on what he calls “a path to salvation.” And in the final section, Pribell shares his own spiritual journey and relationship with God. And he discusses the photo on the cover of “Imagine God,” which is of an image of a rising sun and a cross. This image was what he awakened to after reading a prophecy from Zechariah the night before (LUKE 1:78-79 NIV). It serves as both an inspiration and as a symbolic metaphor in his own spiritual journey. “Imagine God” is a concise and practical guide to developing the kind of relationship with a higher power that the author experiences and that is fulfilling and true. It may take work and careful consideration, but through the lessons in this book, you can adopt and develop a closer personal relationship with God.

‘Believe, be grateful, and become renewed.’ Author Rick Pribell offers his biographical information as a Testimony, a technique much in keeping this impressive book. Having graduated from the University of Florida he travelled the world with his export distribution business, married, altered his career with a stint in real estate, and when that didn’t materialize, he found solace in Christianity – a diversion for a man raised Jewish. Suffering a massive myocardial infarction in 2015 with the resultant surgical quadruple bypass, Rick found new health and new spiritual life. He has since been committed to sharing his new perception and helping others discover God for themselves. In his Preface, Rick states his ‘mission’ in providing this supportive guide – ‘The purpose of this book is to share a simple yet powerful revelation exposing how we can begin to know God. The potential is already inside of us. This can be useful as an effective workbook for introspective study…By understanding what it means to be made in the image of God, each and every one of us can then look within ourselves and begin to relate to God. The epiphany transcends our religious differences, it can transform anyone desiring to learn the personality of God, His like and dislikes. This can lead us to appreciate Him confidently and form an everlasting relationship with him…’ What follows in this luminous book, in Rick’s enlightened state, is a sensitive and accessible path to come to an appreciation of divine communication by coming to accept and understand and appreciate the concept that we can ‘imagine God’ – a discovery that allows recognition of God’s perspective on likes, dislikes, and what is good versus what is bad. Suffusing bountiful scriptural references to support his thoughts, Rick manages to open a portal of enlightenment few other authors have accomplished. At this moment, as we live in a time of global chaos, IMAGINE GOD is a restorative treasure. Rick Pribell’s commitment to enhance others lives in the way his own life has blossomed is most welcome.

An inspirational guide to understanding God’s words. This book was written after the author, Rick Pribell, had a heart attack in 2015. This near-death experience, a prophecy from Zachariah (Luke 1:78-79, NIV,) and his own inspirational encounter with a rising sun brought about a profound need to share with the world his message of “…how our emotions reflect God’s spirit, an epiphany that transcends religious differences.” I have never read another book which so clearly and in such a straight-forward manner conveys the word of God in a format which will encourage the curious, and the needy, to explore the meanings behind his teachings in an easy to understand way. Simply and yet with great clarity, in his own words the author explains what is meant when God said he had created us “in His own image.” Once we understand this, the author then explores how our emotions, actions, thoughts, hopes fears and wants, are reflected in how God wants us to act, towards others, in situations, and in our journey of faith. In reading it I felt it helped me to understand his word so much better, look at emotional situations in another light, and it has enabled me to begin to know Him, and what he wants me to do and be, more. The photograph on the front cover was taken by the author himself in Melbourne Beach, Florida. It has great significance to the author as it symbolizes a light shining in the darkness and showing him a path to guide his feet. It is a picture and a meaning which can be an inspiration to us all… At a time when Scientific American reports 23 percent of us have forsaken religion entirely, this book is sorely needed. It is inspiring and heart-warming to read, helps us to understand how much God loves us, and its short compact format makes it quick and easy to reference when needed. Highly recommended!
