Experiencing God is considered a modern Christian classic. Despite this, my thoughts on the book are mixed. The point of the book is to find ways to experience God. In particular to see where God is working, and to be involved in His work. Overall, I thought that the principles that Blackaby presents for doing this are pretty solid.What is Blackaby’s teaching?
Blackaby’s teaching throughout Experiencing God is heavily tilted toward discerning some particular “assignment” or “task” from God for a person’s life.How does Blackaby know God’s will?
Blackaby is also concerned to make sure that His readers understand that he is not peddling a method or a formula for divining the will of God. “Knowing God’s voice,” he writes, “comes from an intimate love relationship with God.” (p.138) A vital love relationship with God is vital to knowing His will.What does Henry Blackaby do for a living?
Henry Blackaby is founder and president emeritus of Blackaby Ministries International, an organization built to help people experience God. He and his wife Marilynn have five children and fourteen grandchildren and live in Rex, Georgia.
