Description
"Tis so sweet to trust in Jesus, just to take Him at His word", the beloved hymn goes, echoing the deepest hopes of believers that God's promises can be claimed. But as Philip Yancey points out, sweet communion is not the norm. Many Christians find that little of what they hear in sermons or read in their devotions actually corresponds to their everyday experience. In his bestseller Disappointment with God, Yancey showed how we sometimes have false expectations of God and his workings. In Reaching for the Invisible God, he turns the coin and asks the questions every believer has pondered at one time or another:
-- How does a relationship with God really work?
-- How do I relate to a God who is invisible, when I'm never quite sure he is there?
-- Why does God seem to "work" in other peoples' lives -- healing them, mending them, changing their lives -- yet my spiritual walk is "business as usual"?

These troubling questions, he says, can all be boiled down to this:

What can we really expect from God?

Yancey tackles this question head on, and his answers are surprising, fascinating, unflinching, and ultimately satisfying. He investigates life and communication with an invisible God, probes faith in the earthly realm where theology and experience often oppose each other, and searches out workable ways for Christians to grow into "childlike maturity". Readers who expect honesty, startling perceptions, and growth-spurring truth from this author won't be disappointed. As he sets about Reaching for the Invisible God, Philip Yancey continues his quest to help readers get closer to the core of Christian truth and experience.
