I LOVE THIS BOOK!! Philip Yancey candidly speaks from his heart, and says all the things we're all thinking or have thought. He has a great way of expressing all the doubts he's had in the past with his own brand of humor, and then brings you around the way he came to a better understanding of how to hang onto your faith in a God Who truly loves us. I highly recommend it!
This is a great book; was used as a study in Sunday school class. There is much to learn and discuss; chapters can be used for weekly study & discussion. Also, a great book for personal reading & study. Yancey is a great writer.
Life has a way of toppling our presumptions as Christians. Just when we're confident we understand God, the bottom drops out. We lose someone. Our health fails. Or our own intellect begins to shout objections it once only whispered. Where is God with the answers? How are we supposed to relate to him, anyway?
If you've sensed a disturbing disparity between God's promises and life's relities, between theology and experience, this tape is for you. Award winning author Philip Yancey ariculates the fundamental questions that confront us all: How does this Christian life really work? HOw do I communciate with God? If God heals, why hasn't he healed my loved one? If he changes people, why am I still the same? How does God work----and how does he work for me.
With trademark candor, Yancey trims away false expectations of God with the twin edges of Scripture and human experience. If you're ready for a spiritural journey that reconciles faith with honesty, start here. Reaching for The Invisible God helps you move from tough questions to a deeper relationship with a God you can trust, love, and live for with all your heart.
