How does one make a case for a being completely beyond what we can see, imagine, or capture in words? Through examples from Scriptures and philosophy, William Clark, OMI, tries to understand God and what that means to an individual. In the end, we find that only one thing can possibly make the case for Godour faith.
The examples of encountering God in Making a Case for God: Faithful Encounters ultimately show us that our understanding about God is not about whether He exists, but how He exists in our lives. In the truest sense, we cannot find God. Rather, God finds us. It is less a matter of searching for God than of allowing oneself to be found by Him in all of life’s situations.
