Publisher's Description

This forty-year-old Christian classic and bestseller is a study group favorite; this book challenges readers’ conventional views about God and encourages them to search for a meaningful redefinition of a higher power that is relevant to contemporary existence.

Your God is Too Small is a groundbreaking work of faith, which challenges the constraints of traditional religion. In his discussion of God, author J.B. Phillips encourages Christians to redefine their understanding of a creator without labels or earthly constraints and instead search for a meaningful concept of God. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad directions and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static. This inspirational work tackles tough topics and inspires readers to reevaluate and connect more deeply with a God that is relevant to current experience and big enough to command respect and admiration.

Author Bio

J.B. Phillips died in 1983. A canon of the Anglican church, his works include The Newborn Christian and his highly acclaimed translation The New Testament in Modern English.

    My God WAS too small!

    This little book is a challenge to read, and it must be read thoughtfully and slowly. The challenge was to the limits we put on God; the box we put God in because of the limits of our human understanding. We cannot fathom His power, His love, His knowledge, His conquest and defeat of Sin & Death. But once that is realized, that He is beyond our limited understanding, then we can accept the limitless love that was born in Bethlehem to save us; and like St. Paul, we "get" it.

    A classic. And still invaluable as a tool for approaching the issue of the Christian God, without resorting to scriptural citations.

    "Your God Is Too Small" by J.B Phillips is a bit difficult to get through because of the old-fashioned language, but gaining an understanding of the fallacies we choose to believe about God is well worth the effort required to read this book. The key to completion is to read only one concept at a time, and to completely understand the text before moving on. I frequently found my mind drifting, but stopped when I realized what was happening and re-read the passage. Thankfully the "chapters" are short, so re-reading is not too great an effort. And the rewards reaped are worth it - a greater understanding of God.

    This is a classic work that should be read by all. Phillips masterfully describes the usual traps our minds have fallen into with skewed pictures of God. Then he helps us see God as He truly is.
