God Is for Real addresses the questions: What is God like? Why are things the way they are in spite of who God is? If Todd's first book, Heaven Is for Real, was about the then and there of heaven, God Is for Real is about the here and now on earth: Why are there are so many hypocritical church people? Why do Christians make such a big deal about the cross? Why doesn't God seem to answer our biggest prayers? People are tired of pat answers offered up in churchy language explaining away their questions; we want the down-and-dirty truth. What bothers us about life and faith is real and gritty. We need a plainspoken voice to offer God's answers to difficult struggles and painful doubts. Todd charges into these subjects with a fireman's courage, a small-town friend's vulnerability, and a local pastor's compassion. He helps articulate the questions people have, then gives them relevant biblical wisdom for taking their next steps in faith. God is ready to meet you! Are you ready to meet him?
"Pain can feel like a prison...a dead end from which there is neither relief nor escape. God Is for Real unveils its potential to open doors to crucial conversations about God and with God. Not simplistic answers, but the raw realities of hope in the midst of hurt." (Wayne Schmidt, general superintendent of The Wesleyan Church and author of Surrender)
