The subject of this book is intimacy — intimacy in our relationships with one another and intimacy with God. It’s a mixture of sound theology and practical advice. As usual, John Ortberg does not disappoint. In an eminently readable fashion, he takes on some difficult topics such as:
*Defining and understanding true intimacy
*How to connect with others
*The importance of commitment
*Barriers to commitment
*Vulnerability and authority
*Intimacy in suffering
*How to repair intimate relationships
Every reader will find something helpful and enlightening that can be applied to their own life and circumstances. It would be a great choice for a small group study. And if you’re wondering how it connects with the theme for this month (death and dying), check out the chapter entitled, “Who Will Cry at Your Funeral?”.
VERDICT: 5 STARS. I loved it!
