Our deepest need is to live in conversation with God. To hear his voice. To follow him intimately. This is the single most life-changing habit that a human being can adopt, because it brings us back to the source of life. Yet most Christians have never been taught how to have a conversation with the Creator.
In this revised and updated edition of his classic Walking with God, John Eldredge opens his personal journals to tell a year’s worth of stories about walking and talking with the Lord. By putting words to the things God has shown him through some amazing experiences, Eldredge helps readers shed light on the miraculous truths that God is showing them right now.
Some of John’s stories will help readers recall lessons they didn’t know had been forgotten, some will open up new horizons, but they will all help readers tell and interpret their own story: the story of their intimate walk with God.

From Publishers Weekly:
For bestselling evangelical author Eldredge (Wild at Heart), Christians are meant to inherit the kind of intimacy that Adam and Eve had with God in the Garden of Eden, but the belief that God only speaks through the Bible hinders a Christian's ability to experience that intimacy. Drawing from a year's worth of journaling about his walk with God, Eldredge models how talking to God is as easy as checking daily to ask, What are you saying, Lord? Sometimes when Eldredge queries God, God's response confounds him. For example, when God responds repeatedly with two words, My love, it takes an accident and a personal epiphany for Eldredge to understand that God wants him to rebuild [his] personality based on [God's] love. Through everyday life lessons, personal anecdotes and a lot of scripture, Eldredge shows how Christians can get into direct conversation with God, encouraging readers to ask for answers about anything and everything. Eldredge's story (as opposed to chapter) format is supposed to better help readers to pause along the way at those points where God is speaking to you, but it results in a lack of real organization and may make it difficult for readers to uncover an overarching theme in the course of a section.
