Book Review: The Pleasure of His Company by Dutch Sheets
A Journey to Intimate Friendship with God. That’s the subtitle to this book. A journey it is. This book is not a step-by-step list of things to do nor is this book a deep theological work, but a journey of sorts. Not traveling from one place to another, but more about who you are traveling with, in this case, God.
I found this book to be a very enjoyable read. I especially enjoyed the author’s genuineness and authenticity. Glimpses of his real humanity shone through. I appreciate his honesty. This much authenticity is rare to find and this case, funny, too.
The author’s conversational writing style was also enjoyable. Given the importance and gravity of the topic he balanced it well with stories and more than a dollop of pleasant humor.
While reading, at some points, worship songs came to my mind. I think he must have been truly drawing me into His company.
Overall I found this book to be extremely encouraging and not the least bit condemning nor judgmental. Most of all each chapter felt like an invitation—an invitation to know God more intimately and the invitation felt just like the way I’ve felt the Holy Spirit do it—with gentle loving nudges. So each chapter felt like a gentle loving nudge from the Holy Spirit towards the Father.
