about this item

Renowned spoken word artist David Bowden tackles one of the most difficult questions of all—Where is God when we can’t find him?—and reveals what God’s absence and his presence tell us about God’s glory and his grace.

The Bible is full of stories of God removing his presence, of believers lamenting his absence, even of the omnipresent Creator refusing to listen to prayers or attend worship services. But Christians often fail to take notice of these passages, thoughtlessly continuing their usual religious practices without ever wondering: What if we showed up to church but God didn’t? Would anyone even notice?

When God Isn’t There tackles these questions head-on, providing a wake-up call to those who take God’s presence for granted and a resource of encouragement to those who struggle with feeling God’s absence. After all, if God is infinitely far from us and is free to move wherever he wants, how much more astounding is it that God came near in the person of Jesus? This book will forever change contemporary Christianity’s understanding of why God sometimes seems to vanish and how he can be found again.
