God. Whether one loves him, hates him, denies or defies him, it is hard to deny the worldwide fascination with God. This book explores why and suggests a personal response to the God Attachment in all of us.
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.
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.
