Format: Hardcover
This book is amazing. If you really want to know God and His heart more then its a must read. By the end you will want to devote yourselves totally to God and what He means to us, whilst still carrying on your lives. Mike looks at things like God's emotions, fasting, intimacy, spiritual warfare, right through to spending time with God and it becoming so second nature that its the thing you crave for.
Get this and be changed.....for the better.

Format: Hardcover
I have been searching for a book such as this for a long time.

A must read for those who want to experience God's exhilarating and awesome presence! Not only that, but to have peace in times of distress and pain.

Mike truly helps us to open our eyes to know Jesus for who He is and how to be a stable Christian throughout lifes' ups and downs.

He shows us through the life of David that we humans make so many mistakes and yet if our heart is set on loving God, God will take us through our hardship and turn our situations round for good.

Truly a book for spiritual growth. Those who are want to live a life of spiritual peace and abundant love- You MUST READ this book!

Really brings a Bible life "to life"!... 18 Jun. 2004
By Joshua Claassen - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
...The life of King David, that is. Bickle uses the story of King David's life, as well as the Psalms, to reveal a profound truth: why King David managed to possess one of the closest relationships to God in the Old Testament--and better still, how readers can emulate him in a New Covenant environment.
My only gripe with this book is a relatively minor one, but it is, nonetheless, the reason I give this book 4 stars instead of 5. The practical steps to actually achieving what Mike Bickle promotes here are hidden somewhere in the text, and never stated up-front: in a chapter of their own, for example. Rather than do this, he brushes quickly by the practical issues in a matter of a paragraph or so. While the answer IS there, it becomes visible only to the dedicated searcher--or perhaps, to one inspired enough by his glowing portrait of God's affections on first reading of the book to read the book through a second time, and discover the practical application that way--which, given his motivation in writing the book in the first place, I suppose was his point: to create the wholehearted lovers of God he perceives David to have been the first of. A minor flaw, as I said--not enough to keep this from being a truly meaty read to any incipient "God-chasers" who happen to be reading this review! Buy it, and find the first "best-kept secret" of the Christian church: God actually _likes_ us!

GOD'S GENTLENESS MADE DAVID GREAT!!! 26 Feb. 2005
By Heather Negahdar - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
"Because for your sake I have borne reproach; shame has covered my face. I have become a stranger to my brethren, and an alien to my mother's children; because zeal for your house has eaten me up." Psalms 69. 7-9

I have never read anything from Mike Bickle, but I have to say for sure that I was very refreshed and blessed by this work AFTER GOD'S OWN HEART.

This book is based on the Life of King David who in the Bible and everywhere on earth, is known as the man after God's own heart. God had great love for this man David, who, despite what he was going through, always knew that God was there for him. He was never afraid to approach God, even when he had sinned and David like us was a man who had sin. But he was always quick to repent, for he trusted God and loved God greatly. Many of us sin but we are always afraid that God is too much into punishing us that He does not have time to forgive. Not so with David. David loved God passionately and his heart was fixed on God. God had chosen David while he was still tending sheep and perhaps it was God's constant and attentive love along with His protective arm around David from this time and right through the battles of his life that David was ever aware of, more than most people are. David knew how to confront God in weakness for we went after God in a big way. He was in constant prayer and fasting, and had a zeal for building a placeof worship and prayer, a zeal for building God's temple.

While everyone was looking for the mistakes that David had made, David got on with his life pursuing God and clinging to him in body mind and soul, begging to be cleansed, begging to be perfect in His sight.

There is so much to learn from this book and I will suggest this fine material for all Christains and the newly Born Again.

Good move Mr Bickle!!!

Intimate Encounters with God 3 July 2009
By Richard R. Blake - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Paperback
In "After God's Own Heart" Mike Bickle sets out to help the reader understand the emotions and passions of God so that, like David of the Old Testament, we might become men and women emboldened to enter into and experience the pleasure of encountering God, men and women who reflect the heart of God.

Mike introduces the reader to God's tenderness, His happy holiness, affection, jealous anger, and matchless beauty. He goes on to describe a principle of transformation he has labeled "beholding and becoming" and the discovery that God enjoys us. Mike helps the reader understand how fasting "tenderizes the human heart" and releases supernatural joy.

Mike maintains that God is the author of real pleasure and that it springs from God's very personality. Mike uses examples from the New Testament to illustrate the experience of fresh encounters with the heart of God, His fullness, and His righteousness.

Bickel's writing is deeply meaningful, his message, life transforming, a call to single-minded devotion and a heart of unwavering commitment. "After God's Own Heart" is an exciting invitation to explore and gain a new understanding of an intimacy with God the Creator and man's Redeemer.

By Gerdi Klaus - Published on Amazon.com

The Truth has set me free! Never in my life have I experience Jesus so real before. His love has flooded my entire being, and my capacity to love Him back has increased and deepend beyond words!This is a book for anyone who has been caught up in "works/religion", and trying to win God's love with following a set of rules. His waves of love will crush those walls as soon as you let Him!

Highly recommended 22 Jun. 2006
By beloved - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Hardcover
From the beginning of creation God had a zeal for us. He didnt need people to be happy , but He loved us, delighted in us and really wanted us. Not only corporately, but personally. And in this book you will discover Gods heart of delight. He loves you and is passionate about you, and when you really become aware of that, you will love Him back and be passionate about Him not because you have to but because you cant otherwise! This book really helps to grow in understanding, and passion of God, it helps in really experiencing His love and that He is glad that you exist
