Where do you find God? Is it only in church or church-related activities? In Neighbors and Wise Men, Tony Kriz takes the sacred out of church to show you how God works in the unexpected and often messy places of life. Through his own prodigal-son backstory and return to faith, Tony presents Biblical truth in the context of every day life.
Hearing from God is extraordinary. But the circumstances He uses to reveal Himself may be more ordinary than we think.
Neighbors and Wise Men introduces captivating dialogues and unexpected moments with God that go beyond the confines of a conventional religious system and offer the chance for powerful life transformation.
Get to know Tony Kriz (known by many as "Tony the Beat Poet" in Donald Miller's best-selling book Blue Like Jazz) through his real-life conversations and experiences that prove that God can and will use anyone and anything from Muslim lands to antireligious academics to post-Christian culturesto make Himself known.
Through his own prodigal-son backstory and return to faith, Tony presents biblical truth in a conversational, but bold light that offers readers the courage to open their eyes to the unlikely encounters that are all around us every day; chance run-ins that turn out to be anything but chance.
Have we limited God's ability to speak in our world today? Have we relegated God's creative voice to the select persons who share our particular religious system? Kriz himself felt like he was falling out of faith until non-Christians encouraged him to "fall toward Christ."
