Brian Lake's "Romancing the King" explores life changing principles for finding intimate fellowship and union with God. Brian's writing is innovative with a new freshness and enthusiasm for pursuing the presence of God. The book is breathtaking in possibility and provides practical steps for applying the truths developed throughout the narrative.
Brian shares personal profoundly meaningful conversations with God Brian hr leads the reader into the eminent presence of the King. Brian takes the reader beyond forms, creeds, styles, and methods to a transformation that leads to experiencing intimacy with God through: friendship and fellowship with Him, understanding God's nature and character, spending time with Him, pursuing purpose and personal destiny, entering into the deepest level of worship.
Lake also challenges the reader to examine the spiritual disciples of fasting, prayer, and praise. He describes the availability, ministry, and power of the Holy Spirit to the follower of Christ.
I especially enjoyed the new insights into the life, purpose, and destiny of Queen Esther as she entered into the King's presence with her requests.
The "points to ponder" offer an amazing opportunity to personalize the narrative and to develop a personal study beyond reading as the you the reader record your observations, reflections, and step for action as a result of your study.
"Romancing the King" is rich in Bible content accompanied with Brian's own personal experiences and revelations. The book is designed to introduce a rising generation of new believers to find their purpose and destiny.
