"A transformative book that I would recommend for everyone to read.  He does an amazing job at describing the various ways people relate to God and points to the best way – living __with __God, not for Him, under Him, over Him or from Him. A nice side effect is being more aware of the countless times in the Bible that God relates to His people by saying He is with them."​   * [[https://​amzn.to/​2IryaLY|With]] a book by Skye Jethani.

Highly recommended by Ken G. "The Christian life is not fundamentally about being a moral person, obeying a set of principles, or doing spiritual disciplines. The Christian life is about opening our heart to a relationship with the living God. As we depend on the indwelling Spirit and experience abiding in Christ, we will learn an obedience that comes without the burden of guilt and shame."​+  * A series of lectures on spiritual formation by Dr. John Coe of Biola University.
