Experiencing God has ratings and reviews. As I participated in a group study on Henry Blackaby’s book: Experiencing God, I not only discovered. When we read Blackaby’s words more than thirty years ago, we never imagined the Experiencing God family of Bible studies would become one of the most. I eventually put that material into the book Experiencing God: Knowing and Ten years after its release, more than three million copies of the workbook had.

Could not His will have still been done if the outcome had been reversed? If God wants to use you in a way that you do not particularly experiencinh qualified for, pray about it. But does he teach that is how we hear from God? But, perhaps, God wants to blxckaby His strength through you. He will call you to an assignment that you cannot accomplish apart from His divine intervention.
This book is filled with both good and bad theology. This workbook right here is one of the most life-changing experiences of my young adult life so far.
Blackaby says that, just like in the Old Testament, when God speaks today we will clearly know it is God. Blackaby covers all the different ways we can experience God and how important it is to pay attention to each of these.
Preview — Experiencing God by Henry T. Do we really require extra-biblical messages from God in order to know the Truth? These examples naturally led me to ask is this how God speaks to everybody?
Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. I loved reading story after story about how people’s faith determined the magnitude of what God was able to do in their lives. I believe more baptist laymen and ministers need to read and learn from this worknook It is a must read book and their is scriptures and it is only for those blxckaby want to become wealthy spiritually instead of worldly wise. My friend and I had trained during electronics in the making of pc boards, she was Japanese and we became friends and experienckng introduced me to the Lotus Sutra.
Jan 12, Brian rated it it was amazing. Chapter 25 – Reflection Questions. First, it suffers from appearing to be a bit prideful.
My advice concerning this book is to Google “critiquing Experiencing God Henry Blackaby” experiencimg read what other apologists have said about the false information contained in Blackaby’s book. Near the beginning of the Millennium, I remember seeing on TBN, advertisements for a new approach for churches to grow.
And are mostly about planting churches.
The bad news is, it goes way overboard. This is a book that offers a great deal of encouragement to obey God, but the authors as usual are pretty unspecific about what that means. Feb 01, Kymberly rated it it was amazing. Blackaby bases his entire theological foundation on the misinterpretation and poor application of several passages in the fifth chapter of the Gospel of John. I am in favor of the authors’ approach towards obedience and seeking to study the Bible, but find their viewing themselves as examples of faith and obedience to be rather irritating, especially considering their frequent use of the NIV translation rather than the superior M-text and their frequent references to the fictive and unbiblical Trinity.
God’s assignments have God-sized dimensions. Jun 15, Emily rated it really liked it. If you are seriously committed to hearing what God wants you to do or what He is trying to tell you, then I highly recommend it.
For my complete review, see http: The second problem I had with the book, was that it gave a lopsided view of how God may speak to you. Not to mention constantly referring to some conference where he tells how somebody’s life was changed by reading his book.
Return to Book Page. If you’ve ever wondered what a ‘personal relationship’ with God is all about, read it. The workbook is probably better because it is so engaging.
What to even say about this book? But I encourage you Having said that, what I got from Experiencing God Bible Study, is we don’t matter one iota to God except that we bring others to Christ through goe works.
Knowing and Doing the Will of God. Who can’t use a little help with their spiritual walk? I will do this again.
This is the type of study that must be lived and digested for awhile. As might be imagined, I am somewhat ambivalent to the authors’ approach, not least because the authors seem to be Calvinist in their approach, caught in a tension between emphasizing God’s initiative in calling people and the way that we should be rather than do and a need to emphasize obedience to God and action conducted in faith, something the authors fail to explain as deeply as they wish.
Instead of asking in prayer all the things you want, ask Him what He wants for your life, what you should jump into and for guidance.
Obedience is the turning point for me. You get to work alongside Him in His work. Anything challenging often reaps tremendous results.
