If you want a more rewarding spiritual life, if you want the pleasure of knowing your Creator's heart, this soul-lifting book is for you.

With profound insights from the Bible and stories you won't soon forget, The Pleasure of His Companyis like a spiritual mentor, showing you simple ways to enjoy God more.

This powerful book can also be enjoyed as a daily devotional.


Now for my thoughts:


Just for one moment, imagine yourself inviting God for tea, perhaps a stroll in the garden... How would you prepare yourself, what would you share?
The Pleasure Of His Company: A Journey To Intimate Friendship With God invites us to discover a refreshing spiritual life with God. 

Divided in 30 chapters Dutch Sheets' latest book brings practical suggestions on how we can journey alongside God and enjoy His company to the fullest.
Beginning with 'The Person' to the last chapter 'The Price' each segment includes a prayer reflecting the chapter, and includes the scriptures and passages which inspired the prayer.

"Lord, help me to keep my Christianity real simple; resting in Your grace and trusting in Your love." 
As he thanks God for His amazing grace, the author reminds us of the famous lyrics:

Amazing grace, how sweet the sound,
That saved a wretch like me.
I once was lost, but now I'm found,
Was blind, but now I see.

As customary you cannot but feel Dutch Sheet's flowing style as he describes a simple practice of drawing away from life's many distractions and concentrate on listening to the words of God, but always as a Friend.

"Good Shepherd, I choose to rest in Your abundance and drink from Your living waters. Let my heart never be led astray from a simple, pure, and steadfast devotion to Christ. May the pleasure of Your company always remain my favourite and first choice." 

Using a light conversational tone as if the Lord himself was sitting across the table, Sheets reveals some of his own experience whilst inviting each of us to develop a more intimate relationship in our relationship to Him. 

Finding a special place to 'visit', placing ourselves in the right frame of mind, enjoying His presence and thus making Him a priority in our life.

The Pleasure Of His Company is a delightful insight in making your relationship with God that much more enjoyable!

An excellent addition to church, home library or youth's pastor resources!
