I received a copy of THE PLEASURE OF HIS COMPANY: A JOURNEY TO INTIMATE FRIENDSHIP WITH GOD by Dutch Sheets from Bethany House. This is a pleasant, inspiring read that includes thirty chapters. I found myself enjoying each chapter, and upon completion of the chapter, I would set the book aside to contemplate what I had read. The chapters also sparked familial conversations.
Dutch Sheets uses thoughtful prose and real life examples, which make the book more personal. I prefer when the authors of inspirational texts draw in the reader through personal experiences. Not only do I feel a greater connection to the author, but also to the text, and it helps me to revel in what I read.
The humor helped to make the chapters fly by. I can see this being used in a Church group or Sunday School for older teens. The chapters all encourage the reader to be uplifted. I can see this helping someone suffering from depression or anxiety. The chapters are truly comforting, quite soothing.
I highly recommend this book to anyone who loves God or seeks a more fulfilling relationship with religion. I will be passing this on to a friend in hopes that they will enjoy it just as much.
