Publisher's Summary

Humans are unique in that we were not just made in the image of God; we reflect his very nature. If we understood our spiritual, neurological, psychological, and even physical connection to God, we could bring solutions to every problem humanity faces — and many would be practical, even scientific, solutions.

In this book, Shawn Bolz shares a series of rich, divine encounters that have defined his spiritual perspective so others can be released into new ways of thinking and experience an expansion of their spiritual intelligence. To walk with God, you need to know not only his heart but also his mind. As believers, we were designed to commune with God, sharing not only conversation with him but also his thoughts and perceptions — to know his mind through his Spirit. When Adam and Eve walked with God in the cool of the day, they didn't always need the verbal communication that so limits humanity today. They had inner communication from their connectedness.

This is the kind of connectedness Solomon, Joseph, Daniel, Esther, and the apostle Paul experienced, and this is what God wants to restore to His people today. This book will help listeners gain a fresh vision of their faith so they can walk out their spirituality exactly as God intended and take their place in the coming move of God.

Great listen!

Love his prophetic prospective on arts and media. I enjoy hearing from a trusted prophet about areas I am not involved in. Great writer! I have enjoyed several of his books.

A must read to grow in the wisdom of God.

After walking out parts of what God has revealed to me from this book. I find myself going back to it again and again to receive more revelation of God's plans and purposes. Not only for myself but others as well.

Encounter has shifted my perspective

Thank you Shawn for sharing your Encounters with God. They have stirred a hunger in me to ask God new questions and see Him in so much more than I did before.

“Encounter” has fundamentally changed my perspective on the ultimate source of all innovation post Creation. I’ve always been a slow adopter but now I have the freedom to embrace advancement as a gift from God to the world. Essentially, God gifts us with ideas and visions of the future so that we can partner with Him to bring them to earth, as it is in His heart and mind in heaven. He gifts us in this way because He loves us - ALL of us. And He has made every human being with a unique combination of His glory! Yes, His grace will allow all men to use His gifts and ideas for advancement for their own purposes - whether good or bad - but we should not fear bad and stop doing good to bring heaven to earth in every sphere of life!

Thought Provoking on the Goodness of God

The goodness and enormity of God’s love for man and our world captivated my thoughts and what has been lost in our rebellion against God. I remember once dreaming of amazing possibilities. I am hopeful to see the goodness,of God thrive in the land,of the living. And, as I recently retired, looking for where I can walk into my next place and identity with God while supporting people to be free from the roots of death has stolen what Father, Jesus and Holy Spirit intended for us together.

I am still trying to see the connections to the threads in Scripture. Beatitudes, yes. Psalm 139 and God’s forming us before the foundation of the world. Stewards of the planet and our brothers/sisters, yes.

Overall, definitely glorifies what Jesus came to do to bring God’s Kingdom to earth. And, speaks volumes of the brilliance and majesty of the Trinity and value of all of creation.So, worth imagining and listening too and with the author. Absolutely.

Awakened to the beautiful plans for humanity!

Having listened to the Audible version of this prophetic Encounter twice now, I feel so deeply stirred to pursue God more intentionally for His beautiful purposes for my life on earth now and in eternity, and also feel faith-filled for how the Lord has made every provision for each of His children- to walk in their destiny. Shawn’s writings (and Greg Sim’s narration) are so full of God’s anointing that I’m constantly in wonder as I listen to the stunning revelations - and am so thankful Shawn has the generosity of heart to share these Holy encounters with the wider Body of Christ. I pray (and believe) that these words become living seeds in my life - and all those who will read this book - so that we all begin to live the fullness Christ paid for! Thank you Shawn Bolz for your life of curiosity and obedience.
