Publisher's Description

Why has the human race, the world over, been so fascinated with . . . some might say obsessed with . . . God? This built-in attachment to God crosses religious, political, ethnic, cultural, and generational barriers.

Drs. Clinton and Straub reveal fascinating research about this worldwide phenomenon. From avoidant, anxious, and fearful to secure and personal, the range of responses to our internal attachment to God has a profound influence on the way we do relationships, intimacy, and life choices.

With helpful self-assessments, intriguing questions, and surprising revelations, this book moves from worldwide statistics to personal challenge, offering the means to become securely attached to God in a way that can have positive effects on our attitudes, approach to life, and overall life satisfaction.

Publisher's Weekly

Clinton and Straub are Christian marriage and family therapists who use the Bible and an understanding of grace and wonder in the world to guide readers to a closer relationship with God. They identify four modes that Christians exhibit in relationships with each other and with God: security, avoidance, anxiety, or fear. The authors seek to guide readers through crises of faith and "spiritual rehab," suggesting that any addiction can keep a person from God. It can be something as serious as addiction to pornography, or any other "grand delusions" as innocuous as a fascination with one's career that takes a person's eye away from God. This book will appeal to Christian seekers or anyone facing roadblocks in their faith. (Aug.) Copyright 2010 Reed Business Information.

Editorial Reviews

“The deepest part of us was designed to be connected to God’s person and presence. However, we often feel detached from Him in many ways. God Attachment will show you how to become more profoundly attached to the Lord and experience all the benefits of that endeavor.”
“Anyone who has struggled with their relationship with God and others will find this book refreshing . . . The most relevant book ever written dealing with the subject of our attachment to God.”
“A deep, personal understanding of 'why God matters' and how to have a vibrant relationship with Him.”
“The clear, concise way that our individual ‘attachment styles’ are explained by Tim and Josh will lead each reader to break free from pre-conceived relationship patterns and bring them into a fresh, exciting experience with God.”
“The Bible emphasizes the fact that human beings are created in ‘the image of God.’ That makes us different and unique in all of God’s creation. Clinton and Straub build the case from both Scripture and scientific research that humans are ‘hard-wired’ for a relationship with God. While He obviously seeks us, we also are designed to seek Him. ‘You will seek me and find me when you seek me with all of your heart’ (Jeremiah 29:13). Don’t miss this dynamic and insightful study!”
“The theological integrity, coupled with the psychological perspective, that Drs. Clinton and Straub employ in God Attachment, will leave you thirsting for your own relationship with God to go deeper and to grow stronger.”
God Attachment is the kind of book I would give to someone who is lost, who is without confidence, who is without strength, and seeking answers. God IS the answer and this wonderful book will help lead you to Him.”
“Have you ever played hide-and-seek with three-year-olds? Try as they may, you’ll see them run out from their hiding place because they want to be ‘found’ so much! Adults play hide-and-seek in their relationship with God as well. Using a powerful blend of clinical and practical insights, Drs. Clinton and Straub show us both why we tend to hide from God—and how life brings so much joy and purpose when we finally run out and ‘find’ Him! Attach yourself to this book as a great way to understand, launch, and build your faith!”
"This well written, enjoyable, and enriching book by Drs. Tim Clinton and Joshua Straub will not only help you recognize your natural longing for a deep relationship with God, but it will also show you how to achieve it. As you read, you will gain a fresh understanding of both yourself and God, and who doesn’t need the peace and healing coming from that?"

    Highly recommend especially for psych. Majors that have been influenced by Frueid that Belief in Jesus is a just a crutch. Your life can be so much more with faith. It is not a crutch it is freeing and empowering.

    Tim Clinton always knocks it out of the ball park when he speaks, writes & ministers. He and his co-author, Josh Straub, have Biblical insight to the psychology they apply. I am learning "why" and "how to deal with" some of the unknown stumbling blocks in my relationship with God and people. Thank you for writing this book!
