3.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book, disappointing subtitle April 25 2012
Format:Paperback
The sub-title of this book is what peaked my interest - "awakening your five spiritual senses to the wonders of grace." I am a left-brained, linear, thinker... not at all intuitive and not much of a "sensing" person. Thus, I figured this book would be a good stretch for me and my faith.

The author sets out to explain how we experience heaven here and now, on earth. In five sections, he presents how 1) We can feel the freedom of God's grace, 2) we can hear the Spirit bearing witness, 3) we can see the finished work of Jesus, 4) we can smell the fragrant aroma of Christ, and 5) we can taste the goodness of the Lord. While each theological area is clearly articulated, it unfortunately only appealed to my intellect, not my senses.

This was a thoroughly understandable and reasonable book to my way of thinking. The theology in this book was superb! A good mix of Old Testament and New Testament with thorough explanation of key verses throughout. The author did a great job of examining common evangelical phrases and ways of talking about faith, that actually contradict Scripture (even though well-intentioned). This was a superb theology text! Farley concluded each chapter with a "Heaven Speaks" section that summarized the truth of Scripture on the topic as if spoken from God (with Scripture references noted at the end) and then a reply in the form of a prayer.

However, this reader did not feel challenged with anything new - new information, new ways to think about Christian faith issues. It was what I would wish to write as a logical, thinking person who would explain how to "sense" and "feel" things in an orderly fashion. In its purpose it disappointed the reader, though it contains plenty of excellent, bibilical content.

4.0 out of 5 stars A Solid Book on Grace Feb. 24 2013
Format:Paperback
I loved the emphasis on grace and found this to be a solid book I could recommend. It is very meditative and is best read slowly, with time to think about each chapter. Some of the "heaven speaks" (what God thinks) were good, and some were a bit cheesy. I understand the author's struggle - he is trying to get his readers to internalize grace. Grace, unfortunately, is hard to instantly internalize.

4.0 out of 5 stars Shows us How to Live Heaven on Earth April 25 2012
Format:Hardcover
The cover of the book is telling. By showing the peeling of the front cover to reveal heaven, it is a visual image of what the five senses of grace can essentially uncover. Each sense is used to uncover a certain aspect of living heaven here on earth. The operative word is "awaken" our senses to embrace the reality of heaven now. The affirmative word is "already" where we live our Christian lives from the position of "done," "victory already" and "new beginning." Grace is all around us for us to experience with our heart, hear with our ears, see with our eyes, smell with our noses, and taste with our tongues. The most encouraging message to take home is to recognize the perfect work God has done for us, the ever presence of God being with us, and the promise that God will help us. Always. The work of grace is already done. All we need to do is to be awakened and embrace the wonders of grace.

I find the prayers in every chapter under "Heaven Speaks" very enlightening. Printed in light blue, it is followed by a personal response that readers can adopt. There are many Bible references for the interested reader to research and to meditate more on. At the end of the book, the discussion questions allow readers to work through the book in groups. The strongest part of the book is the way Farley is able to hone in the five senses with Bible references on pages 213-5.

As I read this book, I am reminded of a book published back in 1996 that promotes quite a similar idea. Tim Dearborn's Taste and See also deals with awakening our spiritual senses toward loving God. Dearborn's book focuses on knowing and loving God. Farley's version offers an opportunity to realize the grace that has been given to us. Dearborn is focused on spirituality.

3.0 out of 5 stars A good read... April 24 2012
By Carla
Format:Hardcover
This book is a quick & easy read, but not exactly what I was expecting... But really, until you crack open the book & start reading you just don't know anyways, do you?! ;) Anyways, this book wasn't what I would usually pick up but I did find it interesting, although not as inspiring for myself as I had hoped. I don't know if it's because it isn't written by a woman as I didn't relate as I had with other books of ths type of genre written by women. Overall it is a good book though, no complaints, and if you're looking for something inspiring that is Biblically based, you will enjoy this.
