Does God feel far away?
There comes a time in every Christian's life when God feels distant. This feeling can be confusing, discouraging, or even dangerous.
Distant God meets us in the middle of this struggle. It helps us think rightly about what we're experiencing and gives practical ways for drawing near to God. It answers questions like:
When we feel distant from God, we need voices of truth speaking into our lives. Drawing from the story of the prodigal son, Chris Nye takes us through various reasons why we may feel this way and offers encouragement along the way.
This is not a book of trite answers or easy solutions, but it offers specific ways of drawing near when God feels distant. It also includes stories of Christians throughout history who have faced this issue in similar ways.
Distant God is a biblical and pastoral answer to why God might feel far away and what we can (and cannot) do about it.
There are not many books that I have read that are like this one. This one boldly addresses feeling far from God and all the questions that go along with that. I deeply appreciated the lack of easy solutions as the author, Chris Nye, shares messy and difficult truth. His pastor’s heart comes through on every page. There is no shame here, just another human taking the hand of another and leading them to Jesus when he feels so far away. While there was not much in this book that I hadn’t heard before, it was still good for my soul to hear it again and in this way. I’m grateful for this good book.
