Living in the Companionship of God by Jan Johnson

Living in the Companionship of God: A Personal Retreat Guide by Jan Johnson is a bible study which guides the reader on a journey for develkoping a stronger relationship with God.  This interactive books requires the reader's particpation through the guided reflection pieces and suggestions.  Divided into seven conversations or chapters- each section is dedicated towards a specific aspect in a relationship and in communication with God.  Throughout the book specific activities are suggested for the reader to meditate on.  Relevant biblical verses from the bible are included as well, providing the basis for the truths that are communicated in this book.

This book is based on the popular concept of the spiritual or religious retreat.  While most people have neither the time or money to simply get away from their daily lives to an isolated, scenic spot to reflect and mediate, the reader can replicate the spiritual retreat in his or her own home or private space with the aid of this book as a guide.  In fact this book can be used to create one's do it yourself at home retreat- and if the reader is motivated enough and serious enough to follow and persever with the book's suggestions, the same spiritual goals may be achieved.  As a blogger for Navpress publishers I recieved a copy of this book for the purpose of writing a review.  The opinions expressed in this review are my own.
