Hungry For God: A Book Review and Giveaway

About The Book:


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.

My Review:


As I read through Hunger For God, I found myself making notes and underlining many parts of the book. I haven't done this to a book in a very long time. I could not put Hungry For God down and read it in only a couple days.


 It was a fast and easy read, but one that is packed so full of information, that I will be going back through the book again in the near future. I love that there is a discussion guide, perfect for individual and group study, with some very thought provoking questions. Throughout the book, you will be encouraged with many ideas of how to grow deeper in your relationship with God. 


A theologically strong book, that I highly recommend and give a thumbs up to!
