About-

Sharing in God’s Presence means far more than “getting saved” and experiencing God’s blessing in our lives. As believers, his presence becomes a very personal part of who we are and what we do—God actually shares himself with us!



The language that we use often fails to capture the depths of God’s nature penetrating ours, the fullness of his Spirit permeating our hearts, and the innermost infusion of his presence in our lives. But the truth couldn’t be more intimate: “The person who is joined to the Lord is one spirit with him” (1 Corinthians 6:17)!



This book is an invitation to share in God’s presence by allowing God to share himself with you.
God wants everyone to share in his embrace. As we accept our responsibility for prayer, ministry, and even revival, we share in the very precious dynamic of give and response that’s involved in an intimate walk with Jesus Christ.



For a general readership, this book is a reworking of material from the second half of the author's academic work God's Absence and the Charismatic Presence.

Endorsements & Reviews-

“Too many view God as an observer, sternly watching us from a distance. Roy Kindelberger flips that view on its head. Not only is God present with us, but Kindelberger reveals God's presence as a source of loving transformation. This book weaves together a theology of divine presence, while inviting readers to respond to the God lovingly present to us.”

—Thomas Jay Oord, author of The Uncontrolling Love of God: An Open and Relational Account of Providence



“Finally, we can hold in our hands a book that clearly illustrates the foundational truth that has been taught by the church from the beginning—although not always emphasized enough—that the essence of what it means to be a Christian is to have a direct, personal relationship with Jesus Christ as our Lord and Savior and share in God’s presence. Thank you, brother Roy, for your rich insights!”

—Joseph F. Wehrer, Regional Representative for Bridges for Peace, and Bible teacher



“This book helpfully frames the biblical story and the Christian life in terms of God’s desire to be present with us. Everything from the atonement to the gifts of the Spirit are construed via God’s presence to show that God aspires to share the divine life with us in open-ended and fully relational ways.”

—John Sanders, Professor of Religious Studies, Hendrix College
