Publishers Description
Recipient of a 2004 Award of Merit from Christianity Today (Originally published as Embracing the Mysterious God.)We give ourselves to God and then struggle profoundly with the relationship.We are drawn in and then want to flee in fear.We move from faith to doubt, trust to confusion, intimacy to a feeling of abandonment.Coming to faith is like falling in love. It can be a head-over-heels rush to the altar or a slow acceptance that slips into a heartfelt embrace. Either way, eventually romance crashes headlong into reality.Often we make things worse either by feeling guilty about our struggles with doubt or by trying to dismiss them as unimportant or insignificant. We may even become resentful that God does not simply step in to clear up our confusion.When we find ourselves in any of these predicaments, the only way out is to face our uncertainties about God--deliberately and directly.In Wrestling with God James Emery White explores these struggles we all face--struggles of heart, soul, mind and strength. And struggles to love our neighbors as ourselves.Here you will find your tough questions about God addressed. Better still, you will find the way to renewed faith.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
Poignant and profound - highly recommended for every follower of Christ or those struggling with the idea of the goodness of God  Jul 3, 2008
Fast becoming one of my favorite authors and cultural commentators, James Emery White hits a home run with this book. First published as Embracing the Mysterious God (which I gave away to a friend without reading), Wrestling with God is all about walking in obedience to God trusting in His goodness even without seeing or understanding it at times. I've heard it said before that in Psalm 23 it says that we walk through the valley of the shadow of death - we don't stop and rest there, we march on through many difficulties and trials in life - and the one thing that keeps us going through the trials is our faith in Christ, our hope in His redemptive plan, and our obedience to a loving, merciful and almighty God. White reminds Christians that they "are called first and foremost to Someone, not to something or to somewhere."

Following the example of Lewis, White looks to have an open and honest dialogue about the difficulties of following God in this dark and decaying world. He reminds those who look but do not see God, that it is not God who is absent...silent maybe...but not absent. White also gives comfort that God's silence comes not from His apathy, but from His wisdom and grace. It is an outstanding book for all believers on this journey that is filled with potholes and speed bumps along the way. The book is especially poignant for those followers of Christ who are truly struggling to see how an omniscient and omnipotent God could allow so much pain and suffering in this world...especially in the lives of those He loves as His children. But a copy for yourself...and a couple of copies as gifts for others.
