The Presence explores different paths and behaviors which can bring us into God’s presence. Being in God’s presence is not something that occurs all the time. There will be times when we are in His presence and other times when we are not . The presence contains experiences from the author, as well as other people the author has written about. The presence helps answer the questions, “What is my part in entering into God’s presence?” and “How do I reach the presence of God?”.
Each chapter holds a valued message which can help in building relationships with God. The Presence was not a page-turner for me, but it did hold my interest in and throughout each chapter. Alec Rowlands provides supportive Biblical content which upholds his main points continuously throughout The Presence.
I recommend The Presence to all readers.
