Item Description...
In Your God Is Too Small, J. B. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad directions, and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static. It is nearly impossible, Phillips argues, for an adult to worship the conception of God that exists in the mind of a child of Sunday-school age, the "God-in-a-box" notion, limiting God to such inadequate conceptions as "Resident Policeman," "Grand Old Man," "Meek-and-Mild," and "Managing Director." As a result of these insufficient ideas of God, many people live with an inner dissatisfaction, without any faith at all.

Your God Is Too Small explores the ways in which we can find a truly meaningful and constructive God for ourselves, big enough to account for our current experience of life and big enough to command our highest admiration and respect.

Publishers Description
This forty-year-old Christian classic and bestseller is a study group favorite; this book challenges readers' conventional views about God and encourages them to search for a meaningful redefinition of a higher power that is relevant to contemporary existence.
"Your God is Too Small" is a groundbreaking work of faith, which challenges the constraints of traditional religion. In his discussion of God, author J.B. Phillips encourages Christians to redefine their understanding of a creator without labels or earthly constraints and instead search for a meaningful concept of God. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad directions and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static. This inspirational work tackles tough topics and inspires readers to reevaluate and connect more deeply with a God that is relevant to current experience and big enough to command respect and admiration.

Reviews - What do our customers think?
A Not Too Small Argument   Aug 10, 2004
People have knowledge of God through conscience. However, a feeling of guilt and failure may be quite false. People can be trained to feel that certain things are not done. Some people are abnormally afraid of God.

A child might think that God is an old gentleman living in heaven. Children may outgrow the meek and mild Saviour and find their heroes elsewhere. The meek and mild idea operates below the conscious level of many Christians. Thoughts and actions may be inhibited.

Phillips identifies absolute perfection as a false god. He claims the one hundred percent standard is a real menace. It is a prescription for guilt and misery. Followers of religion have found God to be their refuge and strength. It is not right to view God as party leader of a particular view. No denomination has a monopoly of God's grace. The 'outsider' sees clearly the advantages of a unified Christian front.

Another too small idea views God as a sort of managing director. We should not model God on what we know of man. To some the image of God is a blur of disappointment. Such people do not know the terms under which we inhabit the planet. It is necessary to see the immensely broad sweep of the Creator's activity. The vasness seems to depersonalize God.

Beauty and goodness and the search for truth exert an effect on man. True love and self-sacrifice have always been the most moving human attributes. Christ taught that love should go out to other people and out to God. The truth taught by Jesus is the right way to live. The purpose of life is loving God and doing his will. Christ deemed pride, self-righteousness and the exploitation of others sinful. The follower of the new way is called to spread the good news.
