I want to know God as Abraham did as his friend. As His friend. Are you missing something vital? Something that is essential to living a joyful, purpose-filled life? Are you devoted to your church or your religion but still struggle to find meaning and real passion in your faith? Do you love your family, work hard, contribute to your community, but still feel your life is somehow incomplete and hollow at the core? Are you restless in your spirit with a nagging sense that there must be something more ? Internationally acclaimed Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, has known this struggle herself. As she studied Scripture looking for a way out of the emptiness, she found her answer in the biography of Abraham, a very ordinary man who became extraordinary for one pivotal reason: he pursued knowing God in an authentic experience that was hammered out on the anvil of his everyday life. Despite his frequent mistakes and numerous weaknesses, Abraham became a man God called His friend. Anne adopted Abrahams life goal as her own and began a lifelong pursuit of knowing God as he truly is, in an intensely personal relationship. In The Magnificent Obsession she shares how that pursuit now enriches her life and strengthens her faith with each passing moment. Most importantly, through her unforgettable teaching stories and God-focused insights, she shares how you also can know God as Abraham didand be known by Himas His intimate friend.

I couldn't get passed the first chapter, it was like reading a Christian fiction book mixed with spiritual advice from a Christian living book, it was confusing.
