Publisher's Summary

If we were made for relationship with God, why do we often feel lost and distant from Him? The life of Christian faith is and always has been a beautifully awkward reality. Following Jesus is done - can only be done - in the messiness of this world into which we were all born. Yet many Christians expect the walk of faith to be easier, neater, and relatively devoid of hassles. So perhaps it's time for a frank conversation about the true nature of Christian faith. Maybe there are many desperately in need of a clear dialogue about how - despite living in a turbulent, chaotic world - our greatest joy is found in our pursuit of God.

In The Grand Paradox, Ken Wytsma seeks to help listeners understand that although God can be mysterious, He is in no way absent. God's ways are contradictory and counter to the way the world tells us to pursue happiness. Doubt is okay, it will accompany in the life of faith. What looks like struggle can actually be the most important and meaningful season of our lives. This audiobook is an exploration of the art of living by faith. It is a book for all those wrestling with the paradoxes that confront those who seek to walk with Christ. It's an honest look at how faith works, here and now, in our culture, our time - and how to put down real roots and flourish in the midst of our messy lives.

    "Worthwhile contribution to navigating a messy life"

    I'm speaking this into my phone as I Drive so forgive any weird send text please. Can with Ma has written an excellent book that is worth your time. I'm a pastor in Georgia and I have study many of the people who with no references in his book but he does a great job of bringing insights from those who've gone before to our present day. I will definitely keep an eye out for anything else but with my has written. My only complaint with this book was the reader you could hear saliva in his mouth his tongue clicking frequently it was distracting and I would definitely recommend hiring somebody else to read next book.
