Item Description...
Every moment of your life is like a page in a Where?s Waldo book. God is there, the Scriptures tell us?on every one of them. But the ease with which he may be found varies from one page to the next. God is closer than you think!

Publishers Description
Two works of art help John Ortberg think about the presence of God. One is Michelangelo Buonarroti's brilliant painting of God and Adam on the ceiling of the Sistine Chapel. God is close. His hand comes within a hair's breath of the hand of the man. It seems to say that God is closer than we think---he's here, now, today, accessible to all who will but 'lift a finger.' The second work of art is Martin Hanford's cartoon character Waldo. He is on every page of the Where's Waldo? books, but he can be difficult to find. In the same way, even though God is present on every page of our lives, he's often not easy to spot.In God Is Closer Than You Think, John Ortberg examines this frustrating paradox of the Christian life. 'When it is so easy to 'see' God all around me (in trees, in birds, in nature) why is it so hard to feel his presence---especially when I need him most?' Ortberg helps readers discover the secret to living daily in the reality of God's most frequent promise in Scripture, 'I will be with you.'

Where's Waldo?  Nov 9, 2006
I purchased this book for a small group setting and it fit the bill perfectly. Ortberg has a way of uncovering truth and in this book, encourages you to find Waldo, a God who wants to be part of your everyday life. I enjoyed it personally, was challenged by it and found the group setting enhanced my learning. I do look for God differently now since I've read the book. He is closer than we think.
I would have kept the orginial jacket cover. It focuses you to the subject matter much better.
Not bad  Sep 23, 2006
This book is a pretty decent book if you are interested in a mostly narrative style of discussion on Christian Living. Entertaining, well written, and clear, I would recommend it if you are looking for this type of book.
Don't try so hard!  Jul 18, 2006
This is a very helpful little book on how to find God in your everyday life. The discussion of Martha & Mary is particularly astute. My only complaint about the book is that Ortberg tries way too hard to be funny and even hip. (This is the first book of his that I've read, so I don't know if he does this all the time or not; I suspect he does.) Humor should be natural, not forced, as it is in this book. His attempts to be hip are merely pathetic. For instance, he quotes the line "The jerk store called & they've run out of you" attributing it to a friend of his. He obviously has no clue it comes from a Seinfeld episode! Still & all, a good book, though, for a Christian at any level.
I Am Convinced!  Apr 13, 2006
Upon a recommendation from my pastor, I picked this book up and I was not disappointed. John Ortberg writes with a Max Lucado approach. Taking everyday things and making us realize that they too have a place in our spritual walk. He challenges us to look for God in everyday occurences. His premise, as indicated by the title, is that God is more active in our everyday walk than we give Him credit for. In turn, he challenges us to do our part in praying that God bring His Kingdom to earth.
God Is Closer Than You Think  Mar 15, 2006
This book helps the reader to better understand the different levels of relationship there is with God. It is also a wonderful gauge to see where our level is at any given time. This book is encouraging and uplifting to a mature believer or one just starting out. I recommend it to anyone who wants a more intimate relationship with our Heavenly Father.
