Item Description...
You're hungry to know God. You want to encounter Him. You can feel it in your bones that there's more to life, but everywhere you've looked to fill the void you feel has left you empty still: Culture. Career. Things. Even church. Your soul's stomach continues to growl. This book will satisfy that hunger. Wrestling With God is raw. It's about getting outside the confines of dogmatic religion and encountering something real. It is a guidebook into the rich journey of surrender and exploration that can lead to a deep trust in a radically loving but never tame God. Warning: This book will mess you up. But that's a good thing. The end of religion is the beginning of relationship

It is a guidebook into the rich journey of surrender and exploration that can lead to a deep trust in a radically loving--but not tame--God. Get deeper, not dogmatic. Leave the conventional doctrines and answers of our culture and religion, and encounter a wild and radically loving God.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
It's about time...  Jan 19, 2006
It's about time somebody took the ideas in the Matrix and ran with them. Kudos. There's an amazing wealth of metaphor in that movie.

I appreciated Diamond's honesty and openness, and I heartily resonanted with much he had to say.

What I was left with at the end of the book was, "Ok, I'm awake, I'm real, I'm alive. I have been for a while. Now what?" I suppose I was looking for something to take me beyond the "awakeness."

Overall, a good read. At times a little fast and loose with theology. But a good call to waking for those unawakened. I would like to see something now that addresses those who have been awakened, something that moves us to the next level. But I suppose that part is up to us. And God.
Dangerous Book  Aug 17, 2005
Bizarro was to Superman what Wrestling with God is to John Eldridge's Waking the Dead. Diamond takes a little bit of biblical truth and twists and perverts it to his own liking, mixing it in with liberal theology, classical mythology, New Age religions, and the "wisdom" of secular humanism and comes up with a god who is soft and squishy, sugar and spice, accepting of any lifestyle or way of thinking that he or his readers choose to embrace. There is no understanding of the holiness of God or the problem of sin, without which there is no real need for the love and grace that Diamond touts God as being all about and "that's all you need to know..."

I'm okay, you're okay.

If you are interested in finding the one true God, the God of the Universe, the God of true Christianity, stay away from this book. You will not find Him here, only a weak and ineffectual counterfeit. Instead, read Waking the Dead and encounter the full power, love and grace of a holy God.

Know the truth, and it will set you free- truly free.
Postmodern Jesus Follower review  Nov 25, 2004
I find that "Wrestling with God" is a book that gets down to the nitty-gritty of religion and the damage it can do to the people who allow 'religion' to put them into a box. A box in which they cannot freely express their feelings on God. A box which in the long run will bind them into thinking they are not as good as the 'secure-safe-perfect Christian'.
They find themselves being stalemated into the 'frozen chosen', as most often alot of the church members do. They are afraid to speak up and ask questions. They cannot continue to go forward on their journey.
So, in Rick's book, he directs alot of his attention towards the church that trys to put the followers in a box, to mold them.
He is very inquistive with the followers who don't go to church and with the younger generation who have a bad taste in the mouths due to the restrictions laid upon the followers of the church.
He lend them and understanding ear, partly because he sees himself as one of them too.
A very good read.
I changed my outlook alot.
Engaging view of God  Aug 21, 2004
This book is part of a new publishing company called "relevant books" where their mission is to bring real issues to the surface and address them with a healthy realistic Christian perspective. Many times Christians have a way of avoiding some of the most difficult parts and questions of life, putting white box with pretty bow answers on some of the most soul wrenching questions. Rick doesn't.

In this book, Rick will unpack the beauty and terror of wrestling with God. Wrestling with God is not something to be avoided, it is your relationship with God...those that don't wrestle just skim.

If you are ready authentic faith, an honest and fresh view of the Christian life, pick up this book.

My only critique is that the ending felt like a collection of scattered thoughts that he really wanted to add to the book. Overall, an excellent read!
Encountering God in a World of Gray  Dec 11, 2003
In Wrestling With God, Rick Diamond brazenly peels back the multiple layers of our generation's disquieted attitudes toward life and our often perplexing angst against God and drags it all into the open where he dares us to wrestle with it head on.

He asks big questions about himself, about life, about us as a race--questions that demand big answers. But he never demeans us by tossing out pat solutions for our mindless consumption. His is a quest of gray, not of the safer "black and white"--but the end goal is the same...intimate communion with an intimate, personal God.

If you want to encounter the real, dangerous, God of love--apart from all the imposed constrictions of religious rules and regulations, then this is where you begin...Read Wrestling With God.
