About the book:
When Christians look for a reason why they’re stuck in their faith, they often miss the obvious obstacle—their own belief behaviors. Steering clear of cliché solutions, authors Bruce Bickel and Stan Jantz lead readers to uncover how, when, and where they get in their own way of experiencing a transforming, heart–igniting faith. This honest soul search invites readers to
*consider God’s big plan and how they can join what He is doing in the world
*commit to follow God’s wisdom rather than disregard it
*relinquish their control so they can embrace God’s leading and His purpose for them
This is a thoughtful, inspiring call to spiritual self–examination so that readers can replace belief boredom with a hunger for God’s truth and a desire to renew their minds and spirits.
I Can't See God...Because I'm in the Way isn't for people who want to hide from the truth, or for people who wish to exist in the spiritual status quo. This book is for people who want to search inside their hearts and do something about their languishing spiritual condition. I loved this book, but it took me a long time to read because I mulled things over before I went on to the next chapter...and this takes awhile to do. The bottom line is that this book is powerful, deeply insightful, and it's written in a way that is easy to understand. The authors use personal examples to illustrate their points. For me, this book was like a rich food. It's not a book to be zipped through, but it's meant to be savored, pondered, and applied to one's life.
I Can't See God...Because I'm in the Way was published by Harvest House and released in July 2009.
