Summary

"How do I relate to a God who is invisible when I'm never quite sure he's there?" (Philip Yancey)

Life with God doesn't always work out like you think it should. High expectations slam against the reality of personal weaknesses and unwelcome surprises. And the God who, you've been told, wants a personal relationship with you may seem remote, emotionally unavailable. Is God playing games? What can you count on this God for? How can you know God? This relationship with a God you can’t see, hear, or touch - how does it really work?

Reaching for the Invisible God offers deep, satisfying insights to the questions you are sometimes afraid to ask. Honest and deeply personal, here is straight talk on Christian living for the listener who wants more than pat answers to life's imponderables. Ultimately, Yancey shifts the focus from your questions to the One who offers himself in answer.

"A brilliant book. It is both profound and simple, the best blend, in my view. Simple is neither shallow, nor simplistic. The sections on doubt and God's 'absence' are classics." (Rick Warren, pastor and author, The Purpose Driven Life)

If you've got spiritual problems, look elsewhere

If you're having a relatively happy life and are seeking insight to a God that seems hard to reach, this is fine, but if you need something further, look elsewhere - not a whole lot to be found here.
