Face to Face with Bill Johnson

When I first picked up his book a couple years ago I knew nothing of Bill Johnson. I intended to preview Face to Face with God for our church library. The cover is beautiful. The tagline enticing: “The ultimate quest to experience His Presence”. Ever on the lookout for books that encourage the believer to grow in his knowledge of God, this one seemed promising.

Then I read the first chapter. In it Johnson defends his personal quest for ‘deep encounters with God’. He

Bill Johnson has for many years been moving n the power of the Holy Spirit and teaching others to do the same. I love his style both in writing and speaking because he has a rare talent for making the spiritual seem practical.

In this book he talks about meeting God face to face which should be the normal experience for christians. He tackles subjects such as growing in favour with the Lord, seeking His presence and receiving joy.

One stand out quote in the book is this: “In the Old Testament if y

If you are a hyper-charismatic Christian and believe in this nonsense, you will love this book.

If you are a mainstream Christian, this book may offend you and is full of claims that are inconsistent with the bible and Christian doctrine.

From the point of view of a skeptic, this book is full of magical mumbo-jumbo in the name of Yahweh and has no place on any bookshelf. It is a time waster and full of nonsense deepities. Your time will be well spent elsewhere.

Nothing beats the face of God, His hand is great, cause it displays His power and strength. But His face shines His amazing love over and through us.

Good book. Created a hunger for God. I didn't agree with all of the book, but loved the passion it created in my heart to experience God in a real and meaningful way.

I have watched several videos from Bethel to include Bill Johnson, Kris Valloton, and Heidi Baker. So I was already aware of their views on miracles, Jesus, the kingdom, and those of us who hold to sound doctrine. I underlined something on most pages and made comments. Rather than go through each one, let me cite what I believe to be major errors in Bill's theology. He believes that Jesus was merely a human relying on the Holy Spirit during his three years of ministry. Though he acknowledges tha ...more

As I have sought God throughout my life, I found myself questioning why, oh why, were we not encountering God in the ways HE said we should as a mark of the Believer. Sitting in a church pew, being on committees, volunteering, etc...and yet not seeing the miraculous that we should be seeing if Jesus Christ is the same yesterday today and tomorrow. (Hebrews 13:8). I have been seeking out where God is moving and Bethel is one of those places. Bill Johnson not only seeks His face, but invites you t ...more

Another great book by Pastor Bill. I love reading his books because you see his love for the Lord and his love for people. He wants his readers to see and experience “God’s love for people (us) is beyond comprehension and imagination”. Pastor Bill, also, touches on some of the “controversial” issues/theological beliefs of the Charismatic Movement that may cause some confusion. He did a wonderful job in explaining and working through those issues. This book was an excellent companion to my mornin ...more

A life changing book.

To truly understand what has been given to us through the death and resurrection of Jesus Christ, and to really see and know the presence of God in worship will never leave us untouched. I was taken to new and greater places in the Holy Spirit while reading this.

I thoroughly enjoyed this book!

I’ve been listening to Bill Johnson’s teachings for almost a year now and his words in this book are just as clear as his preachings. The prayers at the end of each chapter are so powerful & he took me deep into the Bible, further than I’ve gone before. I highly recommend this book if you want to learn more about what it means to host the presence of God, what it means to submit and how you can bring the presence of God into every situation in your life.

I wanted more!

This book stirred and provoked deep within. Bill Johnson's books always do. I savored it - just one chapter a night before bed. I didn't want it to end.

Had a powerful encounter while reading this - fire baptusm. Posed, ready, anticipating more and more transforming face to face encounters.

I highlighted more of this book than I have any other in a very long time! So much depth. At times, it was a little meaty and I'd have to read a paragraph over and over to meditate on it before moving in. But it challenges me in the way I've been living and praying and seeking God.

Face to Face with God and shine His glory.

I love this book that lead us expressing with glory of God by face to face with Him. Every chapter, Pastor Bill reflection main point and lead us pray with him.

This book was awesome. Bill Johnson is a man who exudes passion for God and invites others to do the same. If you are feeling dead in your relationship with God or looking for a Biblical and honest approach to what it means to have a real ‘encounter’ with God, please read this book.

Exactly what I needed to read in this very season of hunger for more of God in my life. So many simple and profound truths, wisdom and insights (underlined pretty much the entire book as I always seem to do with Bill Johnson’s books).

Where 'Heaven Invades Earth' is written to try to convince you of Bill Johnson's approach, 'Face to Face with God' assumes you are already on board with the miraculous, and takes you deep into the rationale and experience.

Timely read in the season our world is facing. Bill Johnson ties together Scriptures that are prophetic for what’s ahead and how we as believers are being prepared to reflect God’s glory to draw people to Christ. Inspiring and exciting.

He lays out the biblical principle that lives are changed by dramatic encounters with God and that we should pursue such encounters.

So encouraging!

This book has been such an encouragement in my faith. Be in the presence of God and see Him do amazing things in and around your life.

I won this book in a Goodreads Giveaway in exchange for my honest opinion. This is a Christian non-fiction book that will help the reader to have their own life changing encounter with God. Face to Face With God is the very appropriate title of this book by Pastor Bill Johnson.
I slowly worked my way through the ten chapters of this book complete with a prayer and questions at the end of each chapter. It has helped me to understand certain concepts about my faith with more wisdom than I did befor

“If you lack joy, there is one way you can engage in the process of gaining ever-increasing joy: learn to rejoice. A choice to rejoice cannot depend on circumstances, because it operates from the heart of faith. It lives regardless of what has happened, embracing the realities of His world that can only be accessed by trust in God and His Word. Rejoicing releases joy.” 0 likes
