Review: The Pleasure of His Company: A Journey to Intimate Friendship with God
Bethany House Publishers
A pleasure to read as well as a journey sums up how I see this book from Dutch Sheets. Sheets style is gentle, but still able to lead his reader toward God. I like that and especially in this format. The book is divided into 30 readings or chapters and could easily be a devotional book for anyone. As the back cover says, “Learn from Dutch Sheets as he shares his life lessons for cultivating an intimate relationship with God.” But before you think he’s going to share a formula or 7 easy steps, listen to what he has to say in this quote, “Every time I see another church-growth conference advertised, I cringe. It isn’t that the principles shared are wrong… But each of us still must allow the Holy Spirit to show us how and apply the principles to our personal lives and ministries.” (150) He wants each of us to travel our journey as the Spirit leads. That makes this valuable resource to start our wheels turning toward discovering the pleasure of God’s company. And that company is a genuine pleasure.
Thirty days of reading can start a new habit in your life. I recommend this book for its gentleness and prompting toward the journey. See if you agree with my thoughts when you read through this for yourself.
I received this book from the publisher in return for a review.
