Publisher Description

"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 reader 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

    " Awe book, but required a couple readings to get most of what it offered. Deep and thought/prayer provocing. A book everyone should read especially Christians. "

    " I really enjoy Yancey as an author. I listened to this book, I did not read it. I think if you are seeking God or call yourself a Christian reading this book will be time well spent. "

    " Buku ini membawa saya ke alam 'manusia benar benar sebagai manusia' yang berhadapan dengan 'Allah yang benar benar Allah'. Dua pribadi yang sungguh-sungguh berbeda... Nice book... Yancey menuliskannya sangat amat riil dan jujur tentang hubungan manusia dengan Allah. "

    " I got into the book after 150 or so pages but it hit me bulls-eye during my 3-day silent retreat. Not the best Yancey book for my taste. After almost 5 years in my shelf, as if by instinct, I randomly picked it to read it at a time when I need it. "

    " Great book. I liked What's So Amazing About Grace a little better but this one was definitely full of challenging ideas and questions. Worth a read if you are digging into faith. "
