Do you long for purpose in your life, passion in your faith---and intimacy with God? Lotz understands the struggle you're going through---and shares her own journey from spiritual emptiness to fullness in Christ. Through personal anecdotes, unforgettable stories, and inspirational insights, she helps you relate to God as Abraham did---as a close friend. 288 pages, softcover from Zondervan.
If you or someone close to you is devoted to their church but still struggles to find meaning and passion in their faith; who loves their family, works hard, contributes to their community, but still feels life is somehow incomplete and hollow at the core; who is restless in spirit, with a nagging sense that there must be something more
there is The Magnificent Obsession. Gifted Bible teacher Anne Graham Lotz, daughter of evangelist Billy Graham, has known these struggles herself. As she studied Scripture, looking for a way out of the emptiness, she found her answer in the amazing story of Abraham, a very ordinary man who became extraordinary for one pivotal reason: he pursued God in a life of obedient faith, not knowing where that decision would take him. Anne followed Abrahams lead and began a lifelong pursuit of knowing God, as he truly is, in an intensely personal relationship. Through personal anecdotes, unforgettable stories, and God-inspired insights, she invites you to draw closer to God, who is as committed to you as he was to Abraham, and longs to call you friend.
