I was fortunate to read this book while taking Dr. Thrasher's course on Spiritual Formation at Moody. Reading this book will provide a significant peak into the seminary course he taught as it tracks very close to his lectures.

Dr. Thrasher was one of my profs in grad school. His teaching had a profound effect on all of us students, so we were thrilled when he started writing books! It gave us an opportunity to have his teaching/ lectures on key topics summarized and recorded for future review. This book does not disappoint. An excellent work for people looking to understand God's will for their lives as well as for those who just want to know God better. Highly recommended.
Dr. Thrasher was a professor of mine in grad school and this book is basically the content of one of the classes he teaches. It impacted the way I think about God and the way I view prayer, among other things. I recommended it to anyone NOT looking for a quick fix.
