Zondervan just released The Organic God in paperback and eBook. Reworking the manuscript gave me an opportunity to reflect on God’s faithfulness and goodness. I thought you might enjoy the following adaptation from the book:
Several years ago, I remember reaching a financial breaking point. Though I was owed a lot by clients, they had fallen behind on their accounts and now I was falling behind on mine. Though I cut back on every expense I could think of, I still didn’t have enough money to pay my bills including the electric bill. Worse, I needed to make a tax payment to the government that couldn’t be delayed.
As the deadline for the taxes approached, I felt the fear and anxiety grip my soul. I began to pray, asking God to provide. For more than 60 days, I walked to the mailbox hoping and praying that a check from a client, any client, would arrive. For more than 60 days, I went home empty-handed. Two days before the deadline, I just couldn’t take it any more.
Not only did The Organic God receive a starred-review by Publisher’s Weekly, but the book attracted wide-spread national media attention including mentions in the Washington Post and Dallas Morning News.
The Organic Godbook and Bible study takes a look at the attributes of God that we don’t talk about as much—God’s bigheartedness, stubbornness, beauty and mystery. [Tweet this] The book invites readers to take off all the “filters” and “pollutants” that contaminate our spiritual lives and fall in love with God all over again.
Scripture suggests we are meant to live in wild awe and amazement of Jesus Christ. From the announcement of Christ’s arrival, His miracle-studded birth, and throughout His powerful life, ministry, death, and resurrection, we find those who encounter Christ taken back with a deep sense of wonder.
