These thoughtful meditations on knowing God will aid readers in understanding and embracing what God reveals about himself in his Word.
Stephen E. Smallman was in pastoral ministry for forty years. He now serves with CityNet Ministries of Philadelphia and as adjunct faculty for Covenant Theological Seminary and Westminster Theological Seminary. While a pastor in the Washington, D.C., area (19671996), he taught seminars for Prison Fellowship. Smallman lives in Dresher, Pennsylvania, with his wife, Sandy. They have four grown children and nine grandchildren.
As usual, Steve Smallman leads us to Christ. As we follow Steves lead, we discover that Christ is leading us to himself. Follow along for forty days and see his glory. -John Yenchko, Pastor, North Shore Community Church, Oyster Bay, New York
Steve Smallman is an experienced, godly pastor with a heart for helping people grow in the knowledge of God---not just theologically but also experientially. The scriptural meditations will refresh your spirit, renew your passion for God, and help you find rest in the gospel grace of Jesus Christ. -Philip Graham Ryken, Senior Minister, Tenth Presbyterian Church, Philadelphia
Steve Smallman invites us in these daily devotions to follow Moses in his passion to press on to know the presence of God. I was greatly blessed by Steves challenge. -Rose Marie Miller, author, From Fear to Freedom
In a hurried and cacophonous world, Steves gentle and wise insights, framed by Scripture reading, hymns, and prayers, will help readers grow in the knowledge of God, pointing in every meditation from Moses and his experience on the mountain to the Lord Jesus Christ. -Michael Kelly, Assistant Professor of Old Testament, Westminster Theological Seminary
This book is just what one expects from a seasoned pastor who has a heart for providing edifying nourishment for the soul. What is particularly refreshing is a view of Gods grace often overlooked in Gods dealing with Moses on the mountain. -Robert I. Vasholz, author, The Old Testament Canon in the Old Testament Church
When considering what it means to know God, many Christians instinctively turn to the life of Moses. Moses was a man who knew God in a deeply personal way, and the book of Exodus is a good place to start for anyone yearning to know God better. Forty Days on the Mountain is a collection of meditations on how God revealed himself to Moses and how Moses responded and related to Almighty God.
These readings are brief but profound and can be read in forty consecutive days or spread out to allow more time for reflection. Each reading is more than a casual thought for the day; each is one component in this close examination of what it is to know God. Themes include the necessity of obeying God, the ugliness of sin, the power of bold intercessory prayer, and Gods eternal glory.

Tell us a little about yourself. I grew up in New York City in a non-religious family. I became a believer in 1956, went on to Bob Jones University, and then to seminary. I pastored a presbyterian congregation (PCA) in the Washington, DC area for 30 years and now live and work in Philadelphia. I have been married for 46 years to Sandy and we have four children and ten grandchildren.
What was your motivation behind this project? After 25 years in the same church I finally got away for a sabbatical. The text I meditated on was Exodus 33:14,15--"if your presence doesn't go with us, do not send us up from here." The Lord restored his presence through my time of reflection, and the things I wrote during that time I wanted to pass along to bless others.
What do you hope folks will gain from this project? This book allowed me to bring together the thinking I have been doing about what it means to know God through Jesus, which was Paul's repeated prayer for believers. I hope that readers will use the Scripture readings I suggest and my thoughts to grow in that knowledge for themselves.
Who are your influences, sources of inspiration or favorite authors / artists? One of my first models was Archibald Alexander, the first professor of Princeton Seminary and a pastor and evangelist. I also appreciate the writings of AW Tozer and Henri Nouwen. Dr. Francis Schaeffer has also has a major impact on my ministry.
Anything else you'd like readers / listeners to know: My great passion has been to understand just what goes on in the process of spiritual birth. I finally got to write about this in my first book, Spiritual Birthline--Understanding How We Experience the new Birth. I have a website about this: www.birthlineministries.com
