I'd Like You More If You Were More like Metakes on one of life's most important questions: How can I get closer to God and other people?We were created for deep connections. When people have deep connections, says John Ortberg, they win in life. When they don't have deep connections, they cannot win in life. I'd Like You More if You Were More like Meoffers help in overcoming one of the biggest obstacles to making deep connections: the fact that we're so different. Different from God and different from each other.The good news is that connectedness is not based on similarity, but on shared experiences. When one person invites another to share an experience, they're connected. It can be sharing a beautiful sunset or a meal, having a great conversation over cup of coffee, going for walk, or even teasing somebody. And when we share those same experiences with God, we get closer to him, too. God wants to connect with us--so much that he sent his son to live as a human being. God took on flesh and shared every human experience. So we don't have to wonder what a close relationship with God looks like anymore.An intimate relationship with God and other people doesn't have to be a cliché, it can be a daily way of life.… (mer)

This is an excellent, clearly written book looking at different aspects of connection, communication and (in the broadest sense of the word) intimacy.

Ortberg writes in an engaging manner, peppering his teaching with anecdotes, many of them against himself. Whereas I struggle to read more than a couple of pages at a time with some authors, I read a chapter of this every day for a fortnight. Pausing was in order to process and think about the contents, not because of my mind wandering.

While there isn't anything new as such, there are many points made in ways that struck me afresh. I particularly appreciated comments about love languages, and the way that in each interaction with anyone else, we can choose to respond positively or negatively, moving towards or away from that person in ways that can mount up over time.

The intended audience is Christian; there are many Biblical references, and Ortberg gives examples from Jesus' life of his ideal way of relating to those around him. But much of the content could be of relevance to anyone wanting better communication, and closer relationships.

Highly recommended. ( )

An easy read, and Ortberg feels like a companion that is alongside to give you insight into yourself and others. A good devotional type read. However,
I was preparing sermons on appreciating the diversity of gifting and cultures that we have in the church and I think I hoped for more depth and meat than this book ever offered. ( )
