God the Father is offering a deeper life to His people--a closer relationship with Him through greater intimacy with the Lord Jesus Christ. I desire to live in this deeper dimension of knowing and experiencing God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ, and to help others to do the same.

I spend time quietly listening in the presence of the Lord and writing what I "hear" Him saying. I have written this book as a compilation of some of the illumination I received from the Lord in those times.

I have endeavored to write this book, not for rapid reading, but as a work of the Holy Spirit, insightfully helpful, opening awareness of the presence of God to the reader. My intention is not only to communicate knowledge to the mind but also to impart revelation in the heart because the things of God are spiritually discerned.

The fullness of Christianity flows out of fellowship with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ---intimate sharing of the deepest kind between Christians and their precious Father and Lord. This fellowship is not only possible, it is readily attainable.

In Experience the Living Christ! I share the way that the Lord speaks to us in our quiet times and then uses what He has revealed to us to bring us into closer fellowship with Him. Each chapter will progressively lead you into the presence of God by unveiling an essential biblical truth, presenting an admonition to enter into that truth, and offering a prayer to enter into the dynamic of that truth.

I pray that these truths will bring you into deeper fellowship with God the Father and the Lord Jesus Christ.
