God longs to call you friend. Are you missing the essentials to living a joyful, purpose-filled life? Are you devoted to your church or your religion but still struggling to find meaning and passion in your faith? Do you love your family, work hard, contribute to your community, but still feel your life is somehow incomplete and hollow at the core? Are you restless in your spirit, with a nagging sense that there must be something more?
In The Magnificent Obsession: Embracing the God-Filled Life by Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, she reveals how she has known this struggle herself. As she studied Scripture looking for a way out of the emptiness, she found her answer in the amazing story of Abraham, a very ordinary man who became extraordinary for one pivotal reason: he pursued God in a life of obedient faith, not knowing where that decision would take him. Despite struggling, as we do, with compromise, fear, family, quarrels, failure, doubt, and disappointment, Abraham became a man God called His friend. Anne followed Abraham's lead and began a lifelong pursuit of knowing God, as he truly is, in an intensely personal relationship. The Magnificent Obsession by Anne Graham Lotz contains personal anecdotes, unforgettable stories, and God-inspired insights, as she invites you to draw closer to God, who is as committed to you as he was to Abraham and longs to call you friend.
The Magnificent Obsession: Embracing the God-Filled Life by Anne Graham Lotz is a wonderfully spiritual book.
