About the Book

Encounter will help you encounter God in such a way that you are able to walk in His original design for you, which is to not only commune with Him through conversation but to be aligned with His mind. When you share His thoughts and perceptions, you will be able to live the abundant, supernatural, super-empowered life God desires for you.

“As I read through Shawn’s new book “Encounter…” it felt like a tuning fork to bring readers into resonance with the fundamental frequencies of God’s heart. Like when Peter fell into a trance, his theology got adjusted, his beliefs about people were corrected, and his assignment was given. In this new book, Shawn is laying out a series of encounters that have not only shaped him, but will do the same with our present generation of believers. This book will help you perceive what God does, so you can do what God is doing. I believe it will also pull you into more of your own encounters with God, and I’d recommend reading it with that in mind.”

“There has been so much talk and thought on the crises, we’ve accepted as everyday life…but maybe the real crises is the gap between what we’ve accepted as our real-time reality and what is biblically available. I’m so excited that my great friend Shawn Bolz has written this timely catalytic piece that will bring perspective, hope and fuel for partnering with what Heaven will release in this hour. The “Encounter realm’ is opening up over the nations and the activity of the Kingdom will increase. Shawn is uniquely qualified to write on this subject, based on his life and experience. This book will be a classic and will be a measuring rod for the next move of God! You need to get this read this right now!

“Wow! This is a timely word and a necessary charge and encouragement. In Shawn’s new book, Encounter, he details what God has shown him and what He feels God is speaking right now. We live in a strange and often discouraging time, but this is a word to bring hope and stir up faith for what is ahead. I highly recommend this book!”

“All it takes is an encounter with God for your life to be forever changed. In his new book, my good friend Shawn Bolz shares astonishing God-encounters and biblical truths that will stoke your hunger for more of God. I believe Encounter offers a glimpse at the spiritual reality behind the words in 1 Corinthians 2:9: “Eye has not seen, nor ear heard, nor have entered into the heart of man the things which God has prepared for those who love Him.” If you want to know more of God’s heart and His plans for your life—and if you want to live out your faith with a keen sense of hope for the future—this book is for you.”

Congratulations to Shawn Bolz on his latest book release. Shawn continues to be a bridge between the entertainment industry and the radical raw power of the growing church. His work with entertainers and business leaders gives him a unique vantage point. I’ve known Shawn for some 13 years and have been impressed by his articulate ability and his extraordinary prophetic insights. He does a great job in breaking down complex issues and giving practical understanding.

Shawn, once again, translates God to us in a way that only he has the ability to do. This is a modern day Final Quest filled with prophetic imagery and insight to what God is speaking to this generation. He has masterfully related personal encounters he has had with God inviting us into the same encounters. I’m grateful for Shawn’s faithfulness to the prophetic ministry. You will be deeply impacted and blessed by this book.

Michael Miller Upperrom/Lead Pastor

Encounter is all about divine connection with God’s nature as He sees it in fullness of life. Being made in God’s image and according to His likeness is the primary purpose of His Kingdom on earth. Our sonship with Jesus permits and provides for us to walk with God at increasingly higher levels of relationship and fellowship. That enlightenment produces an alignment with God that empowers us to see what He sees, and to know by experience all that He is longing to reveal to us because Jesus lives in us, and the Spirit of wisdom and revelation guides us into all truth.

I have always enjoyed Shawn and Cherie’s journey into the majesty of God’s love, the vastness of His presence, and the all embracing beauty of His nature. This book fits that profile. It pulls on your spirit, it tugs on your heart, your eyes become wide and your mind is opened to all of the majestic realm that you belong to because of what Jesus did!
