COLORADO SPRINGS, March 3 /Christian Newswire/ -- Author Susan D. Hill says, "Everywhere I go, I meet people who say they have all the ingredients of their faith--they pray, attend church, read the Bible, and give money to the poor. Yet, their cake isn't baked because they don't know God. And what's worse, they don't know how to know God."
In Closer than Your Skin (WaterBrook Press, February 2008), Susan assures readers that knowing God is more than spiritual rhetoric; it's a genuine, tangible reality when our eyes are open to his presence. With honesty, she vividly captures the experience of genuine intimacy with the Creator and reveals how to move beyond obstacles that stand in the way.
Susan writes not as an authority but as one sharing her notes along the way, delighting in the truth of Jeremiah 29: 13-14a: "You will seek Me and find Me, when you search for Me with all your heart. And I will be found by you."
Through these unforgettable insights and the interactive study guide, readers will find that God is standing at the door, knocking, asking to be allowed in. Joanna Weaver (Having a Mary Heart in a Martha World) extols, "I love Closer than Your Skin! Susan D. Hill lives a life of passionate pursuit of God."
