Living Close to God (When You Aren't Good At It) - 2 Stars

 "Living Close to God (When You Aren't Good At It) by Gene Edwards, offers up a fascinating topic - after all, don't we all wish to live close to God? The book tells a personal story of fitting God into a busy life, and how it worked for one person. The personal story does point out some important scriptural references, and give some solid advice on building a stronger, more personal relationship with Christ.

However, this really was more of the story of one person, and how through their own busy life, they were able to find a closer connection to God. There are a few helpful suggestions, but nothing life-changing in this particular book.  There are many general references to scripture, which are great, but I didn't really find this book particularly helpful in fine tuning my own personal walk with God. 

I wouldn't recommend this book to someone who is actively seeking a closer relationship with God, as really this is more of a personal story or testimonial than anything else. If you are interested in a good personal story, than it is worth the read.
