Do I Know God?

This is the title of a book that I will be ordering soon.  It looks extremely good and comes out at the end of August.  Too often Christians don’t ask themselves this basic question nor are they prepared to talk with others about how to know if they’re saved.  Many, many people around us assume that they’re "in", but have no ground for that assurance.  So you owe it to yourself and to others to be able to walk through this issue in a careful, biblical manner.

Tullian Tchividjian’s forthcoming book, Do I Know God? Finding Certainty in Life’s Most Important Relationship, published by Multnomah and due out at the end of August should help with that.  Here are the endorsements:Do I Know God

fresh, and helpful, Tullian’s insightful answer to the question ‘Do I
know God?’ will be a guide and encouragement to many.”—Os Guinness 

wisdom, grace, and transparency, Tullian helps clear the sometimes
uncertain path of knowing and following after God. I am thrilled to
endorse this thoughtful work and trust you will find it equally
engaging and helpful.”—Ravi Zacharias

people are confused today as to whether we can truly know God. Is it
possible to actually have a relationship with the Creator of the
universe? This book by my former student Tullian Tchividjian makes it
clear that we can have such certainty and how that certainty is
possible. It is thoroughly biblical, well balanced, excellently stated
and illustrated. May God use Tullian’s volume to bring many to the
wonderful assurance that God loves them in Jesus Christ.”—John Frame 

has written a good, simple, solid book on a crucial subject. Tullian
wants you to know God and to know that you know God. Do you know God?
This book can help you answer that most important of all questions.
What better reason is there to spend money on buying a book—or time on
reading it?”—Mark Dever

is a warm, personal book about assurance, about how we can know we have
been redeemed by Christ. It is written with pastoral wisdom for a
church often afflicted by deep currents of uncertainty and sometimes by
faltering discipleship. It speaks to our time with biblical
fidelity.”—David Wells 

“To know
that you know God and God knows you is life’s greatest source of peace,
joy, and strength for the journey. Tullian takes strugglers by the hand
and leads them with sure steps toward this certainty. Here is a book to
be trusted and treasured.”—J.I. Packer

prayer for you, the reader, is that you will listen carefully to what
my grandson says here. Apart from the Bible, this may be the most
important book you could ever read, because it will help you answer the
most important question you could ever ask: Do I know God”—Bill Graham
