Overview

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.

Editorial Reviews

Publishers Weekly

Through this companion book to I'm Fine with God... It's Christians I Can't Stand,Christians whose lives have "skidded into a religious rut" may find insight into the cause of their spiritual condition. Coauthors of more than 50 books, Bickel and Jantz urge readers to remedy spiritual staleness and renew their energy. While its companion uncovered ways fellow Christians hamper one's faith, this book explores ways that Christians' own myopic views have obstructed their relationships with God. Each chapter focuses on a particular barrier (e.g., misunderstandings about prayer, fear of judgment from secular society), and the authors use honest, personal anecdotes to expose the issues. A section at the end of each chapter provides detailed instruction that's simply repetitive and doesn't always warrant separation from the chapter content. ; the authors also offer downloadable materials at their Web site ConversantLife.com. Much of the instruction encourages connection with the intangible, so readers will need to put the book down after each chapter to allow time for introspection. If they put in the work that the book requires, they may re-emerge ready for action. (July)
