We shared a post last week that contained a video of a pastor's concerns with both books,"One Thousand Gifts" and "Jesus Calling", and the mysticism contained throughout them. The pastor also shared deeply of his concerns with the romantic, sensual language used by Ann Voskamp in "One Thousand Gifts" to describe her relationship and encounter with God.

Like most women do after church is over, I was busy talking. And talking some more. I mean, hey . . . Sunday only comes once a week, and some of these people I only see once a week!
