Overview

Overview

What happens when the storm does not pass? When the pain does not stop? When the prodigal does not return? When you continue to make the same mistakes and break the same hearts? When the distance between what you do and what God intends widens until you can’t see the other side? What happens when you can’t find even a trace of God . . . when He seems to have disappeared? In six unique encounters recorded in the Gospels, Jesus connects with people just like you who are seeking desperately for answers. Pastor, teacher and author Shane Stanford brings these meetings to life, offering vivid glimpses of Jesus’ passion for restoring the unrestorable and redeeming the unredeemable. As a hemophiliac who lives with HIV and hepatitis-C, Shane has felt God’s apparent absence and, in these six appointments with Jesus, has found Him—or, perhaps, been found by Him—again. In When God Disappears, Shane invites you to see yourself in these messy, all-too-human Jesus-encounters and to experience the grace and hope of a God who keeps showing up. You haven’t gone too far and you’re never too far gone for Him to find you once more.
