In his latest book, Yawning at Tigers, Drew Dyck presents the idea that we have gotten all too good at thinking of God in casual terms and encourages us to see God as He is really portrayed in the Bible.
Yes...God is love. But God is also a God who pours out his wrath on those who disobey Him. He does this, ironically, because He loves us.
We like to dwell on the pleasant aspects of God, but the reality is that God is so much bigger than we could ever think or imagine. And as the subtitle of the book suggests, we need to stop trying to tame God because we just can't. God is unpredictable. God's ways are higher than our ways. God seeks justice.
This book offers a fresh perspective on who God is and how we need to alter our view of him.
I've enjoyed hearing from Drew on the Phil Vischer podcast and look forward to reading more of his work in the future.
I received this book free from the publisher through the BookLook bloggers program in exchange for an honest review. The opinions I have expressed are my own.
