Best Friends with God is an excellent and uplifting book by Christy Bower and published by Discovery House publishers. It was released on April 10, 2010.
I normally just read and review fiction books, but this was a book that I knew I had to try out. I have wanted a closer relationship with God; because I knew that He loves me. I decided that this book sounded like it would be good to read alongside my personal devotions in the Bible, and I was right. This is a very uplifting book that is inspiring me to draw closer to God. It is not written in a preachy type of format, but instead pulls characters from stories in the Bible and makes them come alive. Then, the author explores these stories and the message within them. She tells about her personal experiences and feelings, which made me feel better knowing that I was not the only one who felt a certain way. Then, the author goes through some related verses about the story/parable from the Bible. The way Christy Bower weaves Scripture with personal stories and life lessons really show how much God loves us and cares for us. I really enjoyed this book and was greatly uplifted by it.
Thank you to Discovery House publishers and Net Galley for letting me read and review this book!
