A Hunger for the Holy: Nuturing Intimacy with Christ

Front Cover
Simon and Schuster, 2010 M05 11 - 199 pages
Using the imagery of the psalms as a backdrop, author Calvin Miller explores our hunger for intimacy with our Holy God. Insisting that the pathway to God's holiness is through a journey into our own selves, Miller yet maintains that our end is not to know ourselves but to know Christ. Our hunger for the Holy leads us to a table for two in a quiet wilderness. Here, Miller says, we meet as "ardent lovers in the lonely desert of the human heart. There, he speaks as much as we do, and even when both of us say nothing, we are rapt in a welded oneness."

In Miller's inimitable style, he graciously invites us to satisfy our hunger for the holiness of God as we meditate on the psalms and are challenged to know the God of the universe in a personal, intimate relationship.

Humbling reminder of our relationship with God

User Review  - Raes - Christianbook.com

Based on his earlier book (The Table of Inwardness - an amazing book, although no longer available), Mr. Miller continues his humbling guidance toward a simpler and less distracting relationship with our Lord. Very easy reading yet filled with deep truths. Read full review
