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

This is the best book I've ever read to help a person struggling with wanting to connect with God but having difficulty because He's invisible. Yancy is so real and down-to-earth.
