    1. Great devotional book. Includes a scripture, a meditation, and a prayer for every intimate moment. Quick read, although not designed to be read in one sitting. This book is meant to get you closer to your heavenly father. Experience one to two stories or moments with Jesus each day. The author Ken Gire has an incredible insight into the life of Christ. Shines a light on cloudy biblical stories and scriptures, makes them brighter and more memorable in your mind. This bok was a blessing to experie [...]

    2. Absolutely one of the most beautiful and insightful books exploring the likely human emotions behind some of the more pivotal moments in biblical record. My favorite was "An Intimate Moment With Mary," as her reality--that of a young virgin having just given birth to the Messiah--is settling upon her. It's a precious and provoking collection, and a great gift idea!

    3. A wonderful style of writing! Unlike any other "devotional". For those who want to dig deeper into the life of Jesus for awhile, this book is recommended and there is three other books similar to this one by the same author for the same purpose to dig deeper into Jesus' life. loved every part of it!

    4. really good book. i ended up doing this as a devotional, one per day. gire has a real gift to take you right into these major scenes from Jesus's life and make you consider the different emotions and thoughts of the moment. definitely brings the Bible to life and makes you think. each chapter ends with a prayer related to the issues brought up by that scene.

    5. I "won" this book during a White Elephant exchange. I really learned a lot from it. It's short and easy to read. It takes a new look at some Bible stories I was familiar with, but it really makes them come alive. They include Nicodemus, Peter, Mary and Martha, Peter, and Judas. I highly recommend it. (And I can loan it to my friends, since I own it.)

    6. If you need a refreshing look at your devotional time look no further than this book. This book brought Scriptures to life for me, with the characters becoming not only recognizable but almost touchable. I wouldn't miss Ken Gire's writing!

    7. This is one of my favorite devotional books I have gone through. The format for each "intimate moment" with Jesus is first the scripture, then an author's descriptive writing of what the characters might have been thinking/feeling and then a meditative prayer on the passage. I really enjoyed it.

    8. Just love Ken Gire's books. . .what a gifted author. He has a way of describing a Biblical character or event like none other. You feel as though you yourself were there, and these precious people who knew The Lord were your best friends!

    9. I absolutely loved Gire's Reflective Life, but this devotional book was a bit reminiscent of some of the cheesier Lucado books from back in the day that take a small concept and wax eloquent for several pages. I'm sure it's awesome for some, but it's a bit off-putting for me.

    10. Loved this book. Ken Gire speaks to my soul when he writes, and I become a better person because of how he links nature and the Bible. Definitely on my list of books to read again.

    11. This is the title of several books in a series by Gire. The edition that I am reading is subtitled "Learning to Hear." It ponders the parables that Jesus told in the book of Luke. There are some deeper truths and practical lessons about spiritual things to be learned from taking the time to dissect the parables that Gire chose. It is so thought provoking that it is the book that we discuss in a daytime book club/Bible study here in Illinois. It is a hard to find edition but worth the effort.

    12. Amazing - Our Lord suffered so much for us and this book really helped me to see and feel what He went through. The book also brought His suffering into how it relates to today's world. Powerful reading for Lent or any time you need to reminded of our Savior's love for us.

    13. Features a collection of moments in the life of Christ. First in scripture, then in an essay, and finally a prayer. Insightful.

    14. Beautiful retelling of some of the most moving parts of scripture. I felt drawn closer to the truth behind the Bible reading this book.

    15. These beautiful encounters with Jesus come alive through Gire's ability to bring the reader into the moment. I loved every day of this devotional!

    16. I have to really thank Ken Gire for writing "Intimate Moments with the Savior: Learning to Love." This book is an unbelievable read, a very moving experience. I suggest when reading this book, the reader should choose a quiet area, no noise, not even any music. That may enable the reader to fully experience the author's ability to make the reader feel as if he or she is actually in the presence of the Savior, looking into His eyes. Reading this book can be a humbling experience, when looking at [...]
