A Daily Walk with God provides a verse or short passage followed by a brief reflection for each day. In addition, Christopher J. Hensley includes a spiritual discipline or exercise every seventh day, inviting readers to explore spiritual exercises such as lectio divina, guided prayer, and the Jesus Prayer; spiritual disciplines include fasting, reflection, praise, and simplicity. This journey will both fortify your faith and guide you to a richer experience of the Divine.
From a pastoral perspective, Chris has done a fine job inviting us to a daily walk with God, so that we can reclaim our true identity in Christ, whose light shines, as he says, “through the cracks of our clay.” I was pleasantly surprised by Chris’s openness and realistic assessment of the human self in need of a Savior, who offers to be our companion through pain, grief, sufferings, transitions, addictions, or in all of life. His view of God is refreshing and uplifting.
I like how Chris guides us through the practices of the disciplines of Presence, covenant, love, Lectio Divina, kindness, sleep, Sabbath, discernment, and so many others. He is aiming at being “seasoned with the salt of Christ” no matter what. Overall, I see A Daily Walk With God as a formative tool that will warm the hearts of readers.

Perhaps today more than ever, people are longing for spiritual rootedness in the midst of frenetic and fragmented living. Christopher Hensley offers what spiritual seekers desire in a form that makes its own contribution to the simplicity that belongs to the spiritual life: short Bible-based meditations that draw from the riches of Christian spirituality and guide the reader in taking up spiritual practices, written by a pastor gifted in communicating theological truths clearly and simply.
