God is not only to be found in majestic cathedrals or supernatural visions, shows best-selling author Yancey, but also and often more powerfully in the unexpected places - the might of a polar bear, the oppression of a Peruvian prison cell or in the broken cry of Shakespeare's King Lear. As we discover God's footprints in increasingly unlikely places, so our understanding of his beauty, love and power continues to grow. Finding God in Unexpected Places will sharpen your spiritual vision and challenge you to look for God outside the four walls of the church. he may not be as far away as you think.

'Through the lens of neuroscience, McHargue makes his case for valuing religion not for its factual explanatory power but rather for its ability to give meaning to human existence . . . For those who fear science will rob them of both God and Christian community, this work may offer much-needed hope that Christianity and science can coexist.' -Publishers Weekly 'I thoroughly recommend this book. It is written with humility, honesty and a liberal sprinkling of humour ... not only thought-provoking, but also a jolly good read ... A review does not do it justice, so I suggest you read the book!' - Methodist Recorder What do you do when God dies? It's a question facing millions today, as science reveals a universe that's self-creating, western culture departs from its Christian heritage and the idea of God begins to seem implausible at best and barbaric at worst. Mike McHargue understands the pain of unravelling belief. In Finding God in the Waves, Mike tells the story of how his evangelical faith dissolved into atheism as he studied the Bible, a crisis that threatened his identity, his friendships and even his marriage. Years later, Mike was standing on the shores of the Pacific Ocean when a bewildering, seemingly mystical moment motivated him to take another look. But this time, it wasn't theology or scripture that led him back to God - it was science. In Finding God in the Waves, 'Science Mike' draws on his personal experience to tell the unlikely story of how science led him back to faith. Among other revelations, we learn what brain scans reveal about what happens when we pray; how fundamentalism affects the psyche; and how God is revealed not only in scripture, but in the night sky, in subatomic particles, and in us. For the faithful and sceptic alike, Finding God in the Waves is a powerful, page-turning read about belonging, life's biggest questions, and the hope of knowing God in an age of science.

Growing out of two decades of teaching and practice, Finding God Again: Spirituality for Adults addresses, in an experiential and pastoral way, the need to re-envision God as we grow from an adolescent to adult spirituality. John Shea, a renowned pastoral counselor and teacher, shows how we can lose touch with religion, spirituality, and a belief in God because of times when our image of God is too narrow, unreal, or inadequate to make sense of our experience. Shea uses real life stories to illustrate and offer a life-changing challenge to leave behind the Superego God of childhood in favor of a Living God we can relate to as adults. By showing the reader how to revisit God as an adult, Shea provides the motivation and method to embrace a Living God and claim the independence and responsibility that accompany genuine adulthood.
Do you describe yourself as spiritual but not religious? Whether young or old, church connected or not, are you spiritually restless for an authentic faith life but do not find conventional religious teachings pertinent to you? This accessible guide to a meaningful spiritual life is a salve for your soul. It reinterprets traditional religious teachings central to the Christian faith - God, Jesus, faith, prayer, morality and more - in ways that connect with people who have outgrown the beliefs and devotional practices that once made sense to them.
These devotional studies include an examination of an individual Psalm, and then asking the Lord to apply the truth from the Scripture directly to us. Such studies begin with God, thus eliminating all distractions which could interfere with our relationship to Him. We, first, pray to acknowledge His holiness and ask for His grace for us. Then as we confess, we ask to be totally yielded to His will, so that whatever He asks us in His Word to do, say, or be, we will, by the power of His gracious Holy Spirit, be willing and able to do. Over the years, I found myself on my knees, asking to be made a worthy vessel. I would pray, "Lord what do You want me to do? What do You want me to change?" In this manner, as you use these devotional studies, try to identify one issue or aspect of the character of God, and what you need to do in response to Him. This may mean waiting on the Lord and opening your heart to Him. He may call on you to confess, to submit to separate, or to work- whatever He asks, please obey.

Sinful human depravity flourishes underneath the bright lights of Las Vegas. In a town where the Seven Deadly Sins govern business can any man's faith survive in a modern day Sodom and Gomorrah? For most this would be the last place that a person would go to look for God. But for author Richard Brodhagen, Sin City is where God found him. In "Finding God in Sin City" Richard Brodhagen goes through a journey that takes him into the worlds of Atheism, Agnosticism, Paganism, Buddhism, Islam, Mormonism, Protestantism, and then finally Catholicism. This book will not only cover one man's conversion from Atheism to Catholicism, it will also guide any Christian to a deeper understanding of their faith. Through the use of Sacred Scripture and the writings of the early Church Fathers, this book will introduce you to the world of Catholic Apologetics. No matter where you are on your journey of faith, Finding God in Sin City will strengthen your beliefs with the universal language of truth. As Richard Brodhagen found on his journey, if God can be found in Sin City, He can be found anywhere.
