‘Knowing God’ is a collection of articles, forming an introductory style bible study guide.   The Author’s aim is to help others understand that There is nothing more beautiful and exciting than having a wonderful relationship with a loving God.”  And in order to bring this point across, Sana Edoja has chosen topics that are likely to affect individuals who haven’t yet come into a relationship with Christ.  

The book is broken down into different headings, based on the title of the articles.  The reader can therefore, choose topics of interest and be able to have easy access to bible references dealing with that particular aspect of their life.  Sana also urges readers to heed Paul’s advice according to Acts 17:11 as they study this book, “Now the Bereans were of more noble character than the Thessalonians, for they received the message with great eagerness and examined the Scriptures everyday to see if what Paul said was true.”
 

I believe the message that the author would most like to drive home is found in article 17, and in its title: “We have authority and victory over the enemy through Christ”.  In this article, Sana reminds us to focus on Christ.  Using the scene of Matthew 4:6, she reminds her readers that the devil also knows scriptures and that “there is no greater lie, than one that’s mixed with truth.” For this reason she urges readers to Focus on God, for “when we know the word of God like Jesus did (2000 years ago) and confess the scriptures throughout our life, using them to combat the lies of Satan,...” We will win the battle. 


The author shares her experience in little bite sizes particularly in article 33 “God has given us free will” and others such as “Overcoming Temptation” and “Sexual Immorality” relating the practical side of what takes place when one does not focus on Christ.  Having found Christ we are now responsible so article 40 is fitting towards the end of the book as she asks the question: “Are you fit to be God’s disciple?” Sana once enjoyed “clubbing on weekends”.  Having found Christ, she lost interest both in that hobby as well as in the music. “I found that clubbing and worldly music were doorways for sin...” listing a few of these sins as “lust, violence, drugs, sex and alcohol” and points out that “they don’t satisfy the craving needs of our souls for love.”  And so it is important to not conform to the ways of this world as article 41 highlights.

My recommendations, in order to get the best out of this book, would be to treat it as a reference guide rather than a book you sit down and read from cover to cover.  It would be a great gift for a new-born believer, to help towards spiritual growth.  But you may need to get your spectacles out if you have difficulty reading fine prints.
