"Practice the Presence of Jesus" by Wally Armstrong Book Review

Experience the Gift of His Friendship
Do you want to experience Jesus as real? When we look at Jesus’ life on earth, we see Him calling people to simply know Him. He made no demand on them to believe theological propositions. “Follow me” was the invitation which they accepted. They got to know and communicate with the real person. There is a big difference between believing something is true and experiencing it as real. This is the story of how Wally Armstrong learned to communicate with the real person of Jesus in his everyday life. Armstrong experiences Jesus up close and personal and introduces readers to the same experience. In a conversational manner, he explores what it is like to have a relationship with Jesus as if He is sitting right there next to us. He keeps an empty chair ready and imagines Jesus sitting beside him as they talk.
My rating: 5 of 5 stars
How would you like to truly be friends with Jesus?  That's right--what would that be like?  This is a simply written book, not overly theological, but written in a way that everyone can easily understand.  Honestly, there is not a whole lot to say except that this is written by a golfer who put this idea to the test.  And it is easier than you might realize.

All too often, Christians tend to see God like their earthly father.  If they had a bad earthly father, they may see God in the same way.  Nothing could be further from the truth.  Pick up this easy-to-read book today, and you just might find that your spiritual life has changed forever!

I was sent a copy of this  book in exchange for my honest review.  I was not financially compensated, and all opinions are 100 percent mine.
