Item description for Seeking God's Face: Faith in an Age of Perplexity by Notto R. Thelle & Brian McNeil...
Overview Is it possible to find God beyond the distorted images and empty words? Can we even speak about God at all? The author claims that it is more important than ever to look for a truer image of God. A person who seeks God's face will be compelled, at the same time, to seek his or her own face. Conversely, those seeking to find themselves are often compelled to search for God. The book describes faith as a spacious landscape in which one can breathe freely and engages the rich imagery of the Bible to help the individual breathe freely and find orientation without feeling imprisoned. "This openness and freedom are to be found in the Gospel itself," says the author. "They were lived by the Master himself, who portrayed the face of God by meeting human beings where they actually were -not where they ought to have been."
Publishers Description Offers a spiritual antidote to our alienated world by inviting the reader to that most personal of all encounters, a face-to-face encounter with God.
