Review: 40 Ways to Get Closer to God

40 Ways to Get Closer to God by Jerry MacGregor

Sometimes faith demands action. This practical book gives Christians ideas for how to adjust their hearts to get closer to God. 

Each chapter contains a unique challenge and a brief explanation that puts the challenge in context. Exercises include acts of service to others, extended prayer, Scripture memory, fasting, a day of gratitude, media fasting (no TV or Internet), evangelism, and much more. The challenges are broad in scope, allowing people with varying personality types and learning styles to benefit from them.
This book is very helpful for those Christians who desire to grow in their relationship with God. Each of the 40 days gives one tip or idea for growing in your relationship. I didn't do all of them, such as the one the requested fasting. I do not support fasting  myself, but I know it can be a helpful tool for others.

This book was a great resource in my relationship with God and I plan on using some of the tools I learned in the future to grow even more!

I received this book free for review from Bethany House Publishers. I was not required to post a positive review, simply an honest one.
