Product Description

You probably have questions about the Christian faith that you are afraid to ask, such as: How does a "relationship" with God really work? How can I communicate with a God who is invisible? Why don't I feel the presence of God that others seem to experience? Fortunately, best-selling author Philip Yancey has dared to ask these questions and, as a result, is able to teach us truths that even our Pastors never told us about the Christian faith. In this powerful volume Yancey will explain how your doubts and questions about the Christian life can be a means of Reaching for the Invisible God. This book is a wonderful guide for those who love God and are looking for more than pat answers to life's imponderables.

Publisher's Description

"How do I relate to a God who is invisible when I’m never quite sure he’s there?" —Philip Yancey Life with God doesn’t always work out like you think it should. High expectations slam against the reality of personal weaknesses and unwelcome surprises. And the God who, you’ve been told, wants a personal relationship with you may seem remote, emotionally unavailable. Is God playing games? What can you count on this God for? How can you know God? This relationship with a God you can’t see, hear, or touch—how does it really work? Reaching for the Invisible God offers deep, satisfying insights to the questions you are sometimes afraid to ask. Honest and deeply personal, here is straight talk on Christian living for the reader who wants more than pat answers to life’s imponderables. Ultimately, Yancey shifts the focus from your questions to the One who offers himself in answer. “A brilliant book. It is both profound and simple, the best blend, in my view. Simple is neither shallow, nor simplistic. The sections on doubt and God’s ‘absence’ are classics.” —Rick Warren, pastor and author, The Purpose Driven Life

Publisher's Weekly

HPopular theologian Yancey (The Jesus I Never Knew; What's So Amazing About Grace?) steers clear of trite detours, inviting readers to travel through some of the most difficult aspects of nurturing a human relationship with a transcendent God. Drawing upon wide experience and a rich well of stories, Yancey considers honestly the predicaments of human existence. We are distracted with the daily grind, checking our e-mail more often than we meditate. We banish doubts in the name of more streamlined versions of success and self-fulfillment. Christians in particular, Yancey says, are often guilty of worshipping the impossible while failing to believe in the possibleDthat relationship of grace God extends to humankind daily. With common sense and a poetic sensibility, Yancey poses fruitful questions and offers real insights. In the search for signposts of the invisible God, Yancey beckons readers to the Bible to encounter God's loving and gracious personality. Without clich s, he reminds us that doubt and difficulty can be catalysts for intimacy with God. And with humor and fair wisdom, he talks about seeking the Holy Spirit: "To reach for the Spirit is like hunting for your eyeglasses while wearing them." In conversation with the many sages he citesDC.S. Lewis, Thomas Merton and Umberto Eco, to name a fewDYancey is at once pastoral and provocative. Meet a friend. (Sept.)

    I have read several of Mr. Yancey's' books including this one and he does give some interesting thoughts. Being an ex-Catholic and now a very convinced Calvinist I do take some exception to his abundant reference to Catholic thoughts and philosophy. I do not know if Mr. Yancey is Roman Catholic or just extremely ecumenical. Any one who has read and agreed with the thoughts of Charles Spurgeon or has personally come out from and experienced the religion of Catholicism like myself will tend to question the biblical validity of some of the thoughts presented in this book because of this. I know Mr. Yancey believes we need the thoughts of other minds such as these but would he quote with such abundance the thoughts of Mormons or Jehovah Witness disciples? I doubt it
