    This review was written for God Is Closer Than You Think.
    This may be great for seekers, new Christians or those who like light reading. I found it filled with stories that take up much space but do not 'move' the content of the chapters along. However, when the book is used along with the study guide and the DVD material in a small group Bible study the book gets supplemented. In other words, there is a significant investment in other resources which are extraneous to the book. Hence my low level rating for the book.

    I look forward to any book by Ortberg. Read this book a couple of years ago lent it to someone and haven't got it back, so I ordered a new copy!

    What I most enjoyed about the book is the author's manner of expression and his way of wording anecdotes which bring the reader realistically, easily and personally closer to God.

    This review was written for God Is Closer Than You Think.
    John Ortberg explains a closer relationship with God with humor, insight, and imaginative analogies. This is a fast read but provides a lot of food for thought after the book is finished. I keep a copy handy for giving to others because John Ortberg explains these ideas so well. This book can indeed change your life for the better.
