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.

Author Philip Yancey asks the question How does a relationship with God work? and answers it with an investigation that turns up surprising and satisfying answers about: life and communication with an invisible God the Father and his Spirit, faith in the earthly realm where theology and experience often oppose each other, and growth as a Christian that comes from maturing into childlike faith.

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.)
