In Sacred Thirst, author and pastor Craig Barnes brings us face-to-face with our desperate longing for God. Like the woman at the well, we have tried to satisfy our parched souls with so many other things-even religious things. But when we get to the bottom of our desire, we find Jesus quietly waiting with his living water-intimate communion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.

Remember that God is everywhere, all around us, constantly reaching out to us, and interested in meeting us, even in the most unlikely situations.

Advertisements tease us with dozens of ways we can be fulfilled. Many preachers and book promise Christian fulfillment. With a fresh reading of the early chapters of Genesis, he says that much of our pain and disillusionment arises from wrong expectations of the gospel and of life. Echoing comedian Bob Newhart, Barnes "would like to make a motion that we face reality.

Jesus once said, "Whoever drinks of the water that I will give them will never be thirsty." So why are Christians still thirsty? We throw ourselves into church work, Bible studies, prayer, missions, fellowship. Yet still we search restlessly for something more. What are we missing?Perhaps the answer is, more of Jesus. Church meetings and programs, ministry, Christian counseling, and home groups are all good, but they are not him. It doesn't matter how devoted we are to these wonderful activities; they are not the same thing as communion with Jesus. Our souls crave him alone.In Sacred Thirst, author and pastor Craig Barnes brings us face-to-face with our desperate longing for God. Like the woman at the well, we have tried to satisfy our parched souls with so many other things―even religious things. But when we get to the bottom of our desire, we find Jesus quietly waiting with his living water―intimatecommunion with the Father, Son, and Holy Spirit.This book is filled with unique insights into human experience and the character of God. With his keen understanding of the needs of contemporary Christians, Barnes points to the only way our thirst will ever be satisfied. Drawing from his rich background in the Bible and his tender insights as a pastor, he leads us into a new understanding ofourselves and the uncontrollable but gracious God we seek.

Barnes writing style is almost a "flight of ideas": A well written book should develop concepts with smooth and consistent flow. There may be good lessons, but they get lost in sections with paragraphs interjected that seem almost disconnected from the main point of the chapter. This criticism also applies to some of his other books. It is if the book is a cut-and-paste of portions of sermons he delivered and now amalgamated into a book.

Perhaps a second edition could address this criticism.

I cannot begin to explain how much the insight of this book meant to me since the death of my son. It reinforced the goodness of God and that although he allows suffering to grow us He doesn't want us to live in that suffering.

I am a widow and have been questioning my faith as I struggle to remain on this earth without my precious husband. Mr Barnes tackles a great subject which I totally relate to at this time. Read it slowly.
