Expecting to See Jesus--the expanded edition of I Saw the Lord--is the result of Anne Graham Lotz's life lived in the hope of Jesus' return.
As you journey with her through the pages of the Bible, you'll come to realize why she lives her life expecting to see Jesus at any minute. And, she wants to make sure you and all other Christians are ready for that moment when your faith becomes sight.
Anne knows from personal experience that it's in the busyness of our days, as we're drifting in comfortable complacency, that we most need a wake-up call--a jolt that pushes us to seek out a revival of our passion for Jesus that began as a blazing fire but somehow has died down to an ineffective glow.
In Expecting to See Jesus, Anne points out the biblical signs she sees in the world all around us and shows how you can experience an authentic, deeper, richer relationship with God in a life-changing, fire-blazing revival.

Lotz uses the experience of Isaiah when God appeared to him after King Uzziah's death as an example of revival (at times stretching that story to make it fit her points) and recounts the revival story of a friend who had a life-changing experience at one of Lotz's revival meetings. At times Lotz's reasoning is questionable, as when she assumes that any waning of spiritual emotion is evidence of sin, or suggests that every difficult circumstance is God's way of telling us to "wake up But there's some good basic information on living the Christian life, written with great enthusiasm.
