Why does God feel so far away? Why is my worship so empty? Has God left me?
David Bowden knows these questions firsthand, having wrestled for years with God’s apparent absence and studying what the Bible says about it. In this new book, Bowden tackles the subject head-on, finding the key to understanding it in the Bible’s depiction of a God who is infinitely far from us, free to move where he wants, but who chooses to come near in the person of Jesus.
A resource of encouragement for those who struggle with feeling God’s absence and a wake-up call to those who take God’s presence for granted, When God Isn’t There will forever change your understanding of why God sometimes seems to vanish and how he can be found again.
I recevied a complimentary copy.
Cassandra's Review- Yikes, this author has a lot of views and is very forthcoming with them. It just did not feel right to me to read, but I am a reviewer and for the sake of finishing, I did. While I am not a set faith, I do have strong belief in God. I do not ask that anyone bend or side with anything they are not comfortable with and this book may do just that.
The author probably just chose a poor topic that he might not be especially well versed in. I would not turn down the chance to read a second book by this author, but I would not take what he has to say to heart.
