In this insightful book, Frank Hasel gives practical suggestions, which are tried, tested and refined in the crucible of experience. Suggestions, which if applied will have the same transformative result, giving a richer more meaningful relationship with God. In simple, logical steps he teaches us how to pray for others in a more meaningful, effective and structured way, bringing blessing to both the person who is praying and the person prayed for.

It is a practical tool which will enrich, deepen and expand your understanding of the Bible and help you to remember and apply what you learn to your life.

This is not a book to sit on the shelf, rather a daily companion to be used and applied. I would recommend this to anyone who is willing to step out, try something practical and different and longs for a closer walk with God.

- Audrey Andersson, Executive Secretary, Trans-European Division of Seventh-day Adventists

Books about the Bible can sometimes be chiefly cerebral. With his years of experience as a teacher, pastor and theologian, my friend Dr. Hasel has written a striking interactive journal that weaves the logical hunger for truth with the inner desires of the heart. I especially like the many pithy quotes from great authors about the Word of God and prayer. Without a doubt, this will enrich the devotional life of all who embrace it.  

– Doug Batchelor, Speaker/Director, Amazing Facts 

Deep within the heart of every human being is a desire to know God. This inner hunger longs to be satisfied. Many people attempt to satisfy this hidden hunger through materialism, pleasure seeking, status or wealth. Frank Hasel’s book reveals that an intimate relationship with God is the only way to satisfy the aching longing of the human heart. But “Longing for God” takes us a step beyond merely telling us what we need, it shows us how to achieve it. This book is a journey to the heart of God revealing how to have a meaningful prayer life and a life changing study of the Word of God. May you be drawn near to God’s heart and understand His will for life more fully as you read these pages. 

- Mark A. Finley, Assistant to the President of the General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

This book is a 'Treasure Chest' of inspiration and practical tips to deepen your prayer life and walk with God! In fact, once I started reading the prayer chapters at the end of each month, I couldn't put the book down. This book has already challenged me to go deeper in my own prayer life. However, I appreciate that Longing for God is more than just inspirational reading as it is uniquely formatted in such a way as to help us read thru the entire Bible in one year. I highly recommend this book and will be sharing it widely. I know it will be a real blessing to many!

- Melody Mason, author of Daring to Ask for More

Finally, a simple yet profound resource to help us on our prayer journey with God! Like the Scottish cleric Robert M’Cheyne, the author encourages the reader to follow a balanced Scripture reading plan that reviews the entire Bible in one year.  Meaningful prayer is a response to this encounter with the Living God in His Word. Test this life-changing resource for yourself and then share it with your family and friends!

- Derek Morris, President, Hope Channel, author of The Radical Prayer 

This book is an amazing goldmine on how to have a relationship with God.  It is filled with practical steps for enriching your devotional life that I have personally been very blessed by in my own experience.  If you are feeling in a dry place spiritually, or you don’t know how to begin a relationship with God, or you are longing for a deeper experience with God, then this book is for you! It will motivate you and teach you how to study the Bible and pray!  But more than just giving information about Bible study and prayer, the pages of this book engage you in a life changing experience that will lead you on into the very depths of the heart of God!

- Janet Page, Associate Secretary for Pastoral Spouses, Families and Prayer Ministries, Ministerial Association, General Conference of Seventh-day Adventists

Frank Hasel's 'Longing for God' rejuvenated my prayer life.  The simple honesty of his narrative and the practicality of his suggestions for heightened communion with God shone light into some neglected corners of my soul.  If your heart's cry is 'Lord, I want to know you more,' I strongly recommend this book. 

- Cindy Tutsch, Associate Director (retired), Ellen G. White Estate  

I am thrilled that Longing for God is now available in English. Having used this book myself (the German version), I can tell you that it will call you to a deeper, more reflective study of God's Word that will help you internalize the precious truths found there and profoundly enrich your personal walk with God. Because of my own experience using this book, I see this as the perfect Christmas gift to share with family and friends of all religious persuasions who are longing for a deeper walk with God.  

- Nancy Wilson
