Many of us, if we are honest, feel empty. We work and strive with great energy toward ideas that, in the quiet of the night, when we are alone with our thoughts, we know will never fulfill us. It is always there, under the surface, this struggle to figure out who we are supposed to be, with each other and with God.
It is this inner struggle that Phil Needham addresses in his beautiful and profound book When God Becomes Small. With clarity and compassion, Needham reveals our human misconceptions of God and of ourselves. As the book unfolds, we discover how these misconceptions can be upended and how we might follow God to the freedom of the small.

It is this most basic human struggle that author Phil Needham addresses in When God Becomes Small. This beautiful, profound book looks with clarity and compassion at our human misconceptions of God and of ourselves.
We seem naturally obsessed with more, bigger, and we despise what is small, or less.
We make God out to be something God is not, we misunderstand the greatness of God, and see God as gigantic, distant, remote.
At the same time, we make ourselves out to be smaller than we are, and our lives less significant than they are. We let ourselves off the hook, so that we can downgrade our self-expectations.
But Phil Needham does not leave us there. As the book unfolds we see how God saves us from these misconceptions. And we learn how we might follow God to the freedom of becoming small.
