My thoughts: ENJOYING GOD is a really informative read. Sproul shares his own personal stories of dealing with losing a love one and the soul searching experiences he faced after the death of his father. He offers hope and encourages you to seek answers through God’s word. I like that the author has provided scripture throughout this book. Overall, a very eye opening book. ** I received a complimentary copy of this book in exchange for my honest and unbiased review.**
