    In his newest book, Dutch Sheets discusses having a relationship with God. Mr. Sheets speaks of his own experiences and illustrates practical ways in which we can practice being in the presence of God. He also writes of the circumstances that can get in the way of our relationship with God such as distractions. The author uses examples of individuals from the Bible to illustrate the importance of a relationship with God. I enjoyed the depth and the examples of how we can practice a relationship with God. The prayers at the end of each chapter also served as a point of reflection and are a great example of how we can communicate with God.

    Note: I have received a copy of this book from Bethany House Publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    I had a hard time reading this book, not due to bad writing, but there was to many things that I disagreed with.

    It was clear from near the beginning of the book, before I looked anything up, that he is part of a much more liberal church. After looking up the place where he went to school and works, I wasn't surprised to see a rock band advertised as having been there.

    I didn't agree with a lot of his philosophies and ways of worship. This is one book that I cannot see myself recommending to anyone to read.

    I received this book free from Bethany House Publishers for purpose of this review, I was not required to write a positive review, the opinions I have expressed are my own.

    The Pleasure of His Company by Dutch Sheets is a good devotional book. It is laid out in a way that you can treat each chapter as a daily devotional or you can opt to read to your heart's content. It is well written and easy to read. One of my favorite things about the book is how much he uses Old Testament, Hebrew, and Greek words. He defines them and applies them to today. The most meaningful one for me was the translation of the word "wait". He used three Old Testament words that are translated to wait, but they each show a different aspect of waiting. After explaining each one in detail, his definition of all of them together is, "Quietly waiting with a strong, calm trust; longing for His presence and eagerly expecting Him, for you know He'll come; and knowing that as He does, you and He will experience an increased oneness, a braiding together, as your hearts and lives become more entwined" (Sheets 85). I just think that is a beautiful picture and put new meaning to the term, "waiting on God".

    I give this book 4 out of 5 stars.

    This is one of my new favorites!

    This guy writes in a great conversational tone with humor at times. The book is full of inspiration, insight and I love that he's not afraid to go deep. Word studies on certain passages really open up meanings, and I love those!

    This is the first book I've read by Dutch- don't you like that name? I hope it won't be the last. This one is well written. I know, I know, but that really matters to me.

    The crux of the book is this- relationship and religion are not equal, not even in the same ballpark.

    The Pleasure of His Company makes a great devotional. But, it's not light stuff, but meaty even though it's written in such a way that it doesn't seem "scholarly" - it actually is. I'm impressed. Get it for yourself and definitely get a copy for someone you care about. This is one of those "game changer" books.

    In his new book, "The Pleasure of His Company", Dutch Sheets shares lessons he has learned to help us draw closer to God and cultivate a "real" relationship with Him. Personal stories aside, Sheets presents the wonder of spending time in God's presence in an encouraging tone. When we spend time in God's presence, we learn. We are encouraged and God draws us to Himself.

    God doesn't desire worship as much as He longs to spend time with His children. This is the message Sheets wants us to learn. Sharing personal lessons and valuable insights into Scripture, Sheets draws us closer to God and helps us cultivate a relationship with God that is both sustaining and encouraging. This devotional length book can be used as a daily reminder of how much we mean to God and how we can yearn to be in His presence as much as He wants us to spend time with Him.

    God is real. His passion and love for us is immeasurable. Sheets shows us a God who is present and desires our companionship. I will be reading "The Pleasure of His Company" often. The prayers at the end of each chapter are heaven sent.
