In an age when thinking about God can be academic and abstract, George invites you to really know God. But be warned: it will change everything.

What People Are Saying

From the Publisher

Christian George writes with snap, crackle, and pop, pours out images by the bucket-loads, and interweaves our contemporary context with sound Reformation, Puritan orthodoxy.  Along the way he splashes spiritual advice from saints in every generation.  This is rock-solid theology penetrated with the urgency and joy of spiritual discipline. Excellent food (an image often employed) for the soul.
-Tom J. Nettles, professor of historical theology, The Southern Baptist Theological Seminary

Christian George is one of an emerging generation of young leaders who can speak in a language that young evangelicals will access. He does it from a solidly biblical base, and writes with power and clarity.  In Godology he helps readers better understand God's transcendence as well as the tension between human freedom and divine sovereignty.  His straight talk approach may rattle a few readers.  But I welcome his continuing contributions to reaching the next generation of leaders.
-Chuck Colson, author, The Faith; founder, Prison Fellowship

Christian George has a beautiful way of drawing us into some of the most profound and nourishing mysteries of the Christian faith. He's funny.  He's a lively and engaging writer and he's honestly hopeful that God is transforming our lives and the world.  He woos us with wit, vulnerability, and passion into the gospel's "swirling narrative of blood and forgiveness."
-Debbie Blue, author, From Stone to Living Word

Christian George uses fresh, contemporary language to call Christians into a deeper relationship with God through countercultural spiritual disciplines. Heeding his words may be painful but will surely help us delight more in Jesus Christ and worry less about ourselves.
-Collin Hansen, author, Young, Restless, Reformed

Christian George's paragraphs are like a good clean mirror, showing us who we are.  And finding out who we are is step one in the journey of becoming who we want to be.  For some time I have been his friend.  In more recent days I have been his professor.  Lately I have been his mentee, and reading his books is like reading his life -- it has left me a debtor to his discipline, his walk of faith, and his candor.
-Calvin Miller, author, The Singer Trilogy

Christian George strings words together like a spider spins a web.  It's easy to get caught up in what he's doing, and what he's doing is great -- simultaneously clearing away confusion and embracing the mystery of a God who is beyond us and yet with us.  Godology is a created word -- much like each of us, I suppose -- that carries great weight.
-David Zimmerman, author, Deliver Us from Me-Ville

Godology is a trustworthy title for George's compendium on approaching God.  Written in a readable, breezy style, the book will hold the attention of youth, and as a senior citizen I found it helpful (as a young-in-heart) in identifying with young people.  I have longed and prayed for unity among believers in all God's people, and George has helped me make an unexpected step toward unity with all ages.  All Christians, young and old, should read this book.
-T.W. Hunt, author, The Doctrine of Prayer and The Mind of Christ
