Reviews and Endorsements

I have known Norman Mears for the last ten years. His passion to know and honor Jesus Christ is consistent and unshakable. His desire for others to know the risen Savior in a personal and intimate way is the essence of this fine book.

Dr. James J. Seymour, North Haven Church

This is quite a book and is penned by someone who has walked the path for many years.... This is a good read for the new believer; although much will have to be walked out to fully appreciate. This is a good book for the mature believer; just as when one checks the map to make sure they've been on the right path towards their destination.... Solid, charismatic, and thoroughly Christocentric.

This powerful work reminds me that supernatural living is directly associated with my intimacy with God.

In some places outside of the United States, our cost to provide my book Experience the Living Christ! Learning to Live in the Presence of God exceeds the price that people can pay for it. Many people who want the book have been going without one. We are preparing a series of booklets to make the material available to those people, and to facilitate translation into other languages. Each booklet contains one chapter. Upon completion, we will have twenty-one booklets.
