I felt surprised. I expected a book that extolled the virtues of God, saying he's gracious and loving. Instead, I got insight on how God uses his virtues to work in lives. Reading Ms. Collier's stories helped me more than just listing God's great qualities. In addition, the book is full of Scripture written out, which directly connected each story to his word. This book was a pleasant surprise.
Also she introduces a wonderful idea to implant in my own devotional time. I won't ruin that surprise, but it's a delightful idea that I can see anyone implementing. I was glad to see how it worked for Mardi Collier, because I could see how it would work in my life. That increased my motivation to really ask myself, What Do I Know About My God?
A group of ladies gathered at my home to go through this book. We were each deeply challenged by the message of "What Do I Know About My God." It is written in a straightforward manner, but is far from preachy. Each of us felt that we could relate to the author, and the way she presents her method of Bible study is both simple and profound. I would highly recommend this book to any woman who seeks to know God.
The contents of this book are just the tip of the iceberg in getting to know God. Each part of this book, from cover to cover, directs the reader to God's Word. Having the privilege of being able to meet Mrs. Collier and sit under her teaching during our church's Ladies Retreat, it is obvious that this book was done not to elevate self, but to elevate God. This study, if pursued to its fullest, will lead to a lifetime of getting to know God and in doing so will lead to personal spiritual growth that just might surprise and change you...for the better.
I've recommended this book to so many people. This book will be a great tool to better know the true God of the Bible. Whenever we sin, we choose to love ourselves more than God. One of my "Timothys" brought to my attention that she doesn't know if she loves God enough to change bad behavior. How accurate that is to all our lives. This technique will allow you to make God real in your life so that you can choose to love God...because you KNOW God!
