Book Review - God Space


Think you don't have time or space for spiritual stuff? That intimacy with God is impossible?
Here's how-in the life you already live-you can make time and space for God.

GODSPACE offers seven practices that help busy Christians pay attention to God. They help us align our sometimes messy daily lives with our spirituality. And they strengthen our most important relationships, giving our lives meaning, significance, and purpose.

It's not holding a set of beliefs, reading the Bible, going to church, or even praying that determines how we connect with God. It's our pace of life. When we live hurried and distracted lives, we miss the chance to experience the intimacy we desire with God.

Experience God more deeply and live more joyfully by exploring these seven spiritual practices:
•Critical thinking

With abundant wit, humorous anecdotes, and authentic sharing of her own joys and struggles, KERI WYATT KENT guides us toward a deeper and more meaningful faith in the midst of our overcrowded, cluttered lives.


KERI WYATT KENT is the author of ten books and the co-author of many more. She continually writes for a variety of print and digital publications, including Christianity Today, Gifted for Leadership, The High Calling, SmallGroups.com, and Today's Christian Woman. She also serves as lay pastor at Willow Creek Community Church, where she has been a member for almost 30 years.


This book encourages us to pay attention to God so we can live a life that is more spiritually abundant and focused.

The seven principles are not difficult and, in fact, I was excited to start implementing many of these ideas into my own life. I really liked how she encourages us to slow down, to set the electronic devices down for a day, and to clear our lives of the clutter that weighs us down.

I really learned a lot about the Sabbath and what it is and what it isn't. Too many rules have been written about the Sabbath and I have felt guilty when I break any of these "rules". She shows us how we can connect with God on this Holy day in many ways.

I enjoyed how Keri was was honest about what worked in her life and what didn't. She shares from her heart and doesn't preach at us. The book is easy to read and very enjoyable. This is an excellent book for anyone wanting to draw closer to God. I highly recommend this to everyone and give it 5 out of 5 stars.
