Enjoying God: Experience the Power and Love of God in Everyday Life
“I'm so often reassuring myself and others that feelings aren't a good sign of my spiritual state that I forget to seek and enjoy communion with God. This book reminded me of all sorts of ways in which the Lord is offering me himself to enjoy.”See All

“"Enjoying God" is gourmet food for the weary soul. Tim Chester shows us how we can really, expansively, and truly enjoy our communion with Godnot by any weird spiritual techniques but by drilling down into our oneness with him. As we understand the three Persons of God more richly, we are invited into a more vivid and real experience of him. This is profound truth in simple and engaging writing.”See All

“I absolutely loved this book. It has been a huge blessing, like cool refreshing water for my soul. I frequently found myself identifying with the sin, struggles and faulty thinking Tim Chester so vividly describes in various scenarios and illustrations, which also helped me see how my view of our triune God is often so flattened and limited. My heart was softened and warmed as Tim held up all that the Father, Son and Spirit have done, and continue to do, to enable us to truly experience and enjoy an intimate relationship with God and know his daily goodness, grace and love in the messy reality of our daily lives. I finished the book marvelling at our glorious God, feeling humbled, excited, encouraged and spurred on.”See All

“The best books are biblical, practical, personal, pastoral, and worshipful. "Enjoying God" is one of those rare books that excels in each area. I commend it highly.”See All

“From the authors of Scripture onwards, the Lord's people have always known that the purpose of life is "to glorify God, and to enjoy him forever". But each generation, in fact every Christian, needs to discover this anew. And the way is not an easy one. But it is the only path worth taking. In "Enjoying God", Tim Chester shares his own experiences in walking along this gospel road and issues a warm invitation to join him. Accept it, and, with Tim Chester as your guide, you will never regret it.”See All

“We talk a lot about knowing and glorifying God, but what about enjoying him? And not just as an abstract Being, but as the Father, the Son and the Holy Spiritenjoying each Person in all of his difference as well as divine unity? And not just in happy times or at church, but in every circumstance of life? It just keeps getting better and better as you turn each page of "Enjoying God". This book will lift you into the presence of the Source of all joy.”See All

“Winsome in its unpacking of theology and compelling in the sweep of its applications, "Enjoying God" is neither an essay on the Trinity nor a "how to" manual, but something close to both. It is among the best of the rising number of books that instruct Christians on how to cross the bridge from enjoying God on the Lord's Day to enjoying God every day. Tim Chester is in no danger of making God little more than a useful utility to increase our pleasure; he is far too God-centered and gospel-centered for that. But if we desire to experience for ourselves a little more (one of Tim's favorite words) of the truth that in God's presence there are pleasures forever more, we shall be hard-pressed to find a better guide.”See All

“Tim Chesters books are always unusually accessible. He can distill great amounts of complex theological truth into short, digestible chapters. In this book, he brings this skill to bear on the subject of communion with Godperhaps the greatest privilege of a Christian. But it is one little understood, and even less is it actually enjoyed. I urge you to read this volume. It will make you hunger and thirst for fellowship with God.”See All

We believe in God, we serve God, we love God but do we ENJOY God as much as we can? Does our head knowledge translate into affection of the heart? Do we have a meaningful relationship with someone we can't see? Do we feel excited about God everyday, in every context?
Tim Chester shows us how to relate to each of the three persons of the Trinity, and what this look like in practice. Readers will discover that as we engage more with God, and understand how awesome he is, we can enjoy him more.
This isn't a book about the Trinity. It's a "how to" book exploring how we relate to God (for which we need a true understanding of the Trinity). In day-to-day life, how do the three persons of the Trinity relate to us, and how do we respond?
