Publisher's Summary

"How do I relate to a God who is invisible when I'm never quite sure he's there?" Life has a way of toppling our presumptions as Christians. Just when we're confident we understand God, the bottom drops out. We lose a loved one. Our health fails. Or our own intellect begins to shout objections it once only whispered. Where is God with the answers? How are we supposed to relate to him, anyway?If you've sensed a disturbing disparity between God's promises and life's realities, between theology and experience, this program is for you. Award-winning author Philip Yancey articulates the fundamental questions that confront us all: How does this Christian faith really work? How do I communicate with God? If God heals, why hasn't he healed my loved one? If he changes people, why am I still the same? How does God work - and how does he work for me?
With trademark candor, Yancey trims away false expectations of God with the twin edges of Scripture and human experience. If you're ready for a spiritual journey that reconciles faith with honesty, start here. Reaching for the Invisible God helps you move from tough questions to a deeper relationship with a God you can trust, love, and live for with all your heart.

A Christian author has the doubts I do?

He's been where I've been. At every turn in the book, I see reflections of myself and my doubts about God. He gave me permission to doubt, and to express those doubts to other believers. Instead of undermining my belief, it's strengthened my faith! This book is a must-read for anyone struggling with doubt about the Christian faith. (Which is all of us.)

The book is well-read, and the narrator is always pleasant to listen to.

This book offers great insights.

This is such a fundamentally honest book. The author's questions and discussion were very on point and relevent, and helped me to stretch my faith and examine my lack of faith fearlessly. This book is reassuring, warm, challenging. Great narrator as well, he is animated and comfortable. On the down side, I'm not sure the piano interludes with lady narrator add much. Overall a good selection, you won't be disappointed.
