With that in mind, Ortberg writes about intimacy with one another and intimacy with God. We often feel if we get too close to people we will end up getting hurt, so we erect barriers to keep people away and ourselves protected.
He explains, we will learn
- how to recognize and respond to desires for connections.
- how to get past our fear of intimacy.
- how to sidestep common relationship pitfalls.
- how to make God and active part of our everyday lives.
This is book is filled with anecdotal stories, illustrations, discussions about scripture and God and is written in a very readable manner.
Overall, it is a very good book. Possibly one of the deeper writings of Ortberg.
