What a blessing to have been a student of John Hannah! Sitting in his classroom was like trekking through mountain ranges, the majesty of the living God on display all around, glorious vistas opening up in the words of his lectures. I’m delighted that this book will make Dr. Hannah’s teaching available beyond his classroom, and I’m eager to keep copies on hand to give it away to anyone seeking a more intimate walk with God.

It is rare to find a book on cultivating a life with God that is so deeply grounded in theology, so honest about the everyday realities of Christian living, and so free of the type of formulaic approach that occupies far too many books on spiritual life.

Any Christian who wants to think deeply about the normal Christian life and what it means to ‘struggle successfully’ will benefit from the practical insights found in these pages.

This book will rescue you from a self–help, quick–fix, perspective, and yet challenge you to follow Christ practically in old and bold ways—all while believing the best is yet to come.
Mark Yarbrough, President and Professor of Bible Exposition, Dallas Theological Seminary, Texas
The reader walks away not with a sense of the impossibility of the Christian life, but with a renewed longing for authentic intimacy with God.
