Item description for God's Front Door by Jill Briscoe...
Overview I glanced across the aisle and jumped. He was sitting in the seat opposite me. I noticed He had His seat belt on. "That's funny," I said, "You've got Your seat belt fastened." "It's good to obey the rules," He said. "I hate flying." I said. "Better than riding a donkey," He remarked. "And safer!" "We're so high up," I said looking apprehensively out of the window. "you're nearer The Front Door up here," He responded cheerfully. Then I was really nervous! "Lord, it's not that I don't want to live with You forever, It's just...just..." He didn't help me out. "It's just--I wasn't expecting it to be today," I finished lamely. He laughed again and the plane gave a lurch and a bump and another bump and I reached across the aisle and caught hold of His hand. "This is fun," He said cheerfully. "So much better than a donkey."
C. S. Lewis once described Christians as being "outside of the world, the wrong side of the door." But as long as we are here on earth, we need only knock on God's front door to speak with Him.
In this beautiful book, Jill Briscoe writes several short dialogues with the Father as she sees His hand at work in the diverse circumstances of life. She covers everything from the big problems--war, separation from family, and the divorce and remarriage of a child--to the more every day problems--interruptions in one's hectic schedule and disappointments with people. "God's Front Door" is a very human book and Jill speaks openly and honestly about her fears and failings.
