Publisher's Summary

A powerful attraction exists in the universe: an attraction between the Creator and the creation He loves. A positive, Christian "alternative" to Rhonda Byrne's The Secret, The Secret Things of God reveals 20 age-old secrets of God, some of which have been true since before Creation and others that were revealed 2,000 years ago when the Creator of the Universe became human.

Dr. Henry Cloud brings his insights as both a psychologist and a student of spiritual life to the eternal principles that govern listeners' goals, desires, relationships, and lives. These same truths, if activated in people's lives, are guaranteed to fill them with security, hope, and relationship with the eternal Creator. Cloud also reveals how these truths, found in Judeo-Christian teachings, intersect and interface with the spiritual longings expressed in the principles found in The Secret and similar works. Recognizing and applauding the search for truth and a connection with a power beyond the human, Cloud leads listeners into relationship with a God who loves them and has given all to save them.

Many Christians have believed in God all their lives and claim Jesus as their Savior, but continue to live a joyless, defeated life. They are no better able to weather the inevitable pains of life than those who claim no faith at all. The secret to true joy, inner peace, sustaining hope, powerful purpose, and more is locked in their minds but has not been activated in their hearts and lives. The Secret Things of God reveals 20 profoundly simple secrets and gently guides listeners in how to unlock and activate the power of these truths.

The title is based on 1 Corinthians 4:1-2: "Regard us as servants of Christ and as those entrusted with the secret things of God. Now it is required that those who have been given a trust must prove faithful."

    "Anything Cloud and Townsend write is good"

    Anything these guys write is good. It just is. They research their topics well and give practical advice. It's not the classic that "Boundaries" is, but it's a worthwhile comment to "The Secret"...much clearer spiritually. It is Christian perspective, so if you're hoping for a New Age experience, that it is not.

    "Great listen"

    I really could relate to what he was saying. I really liked the things that he had to say. If you have read or listened to the secret this is a great christian version.

    "I LOVE Dr. Henry Cloud"
    What does Dr. Henry Cloud bring to the story that you wouldn’t experience if you just read the book?

    I love that He reads the book.... It is so broad in the live principles it addresses, yet so subtle and small in the tiny challenging concepts presented....


    Was this a book you wanted to listen to all in one sitting?

    No. This is a fine course meal, some you like better than others. Some you are more excited to hear that the other parts - but it has to be taken in slowly.

    "Set Free"

    Thank you . This book has touch so many areas of my life and personality that needs fixing and healing. Guilt is a horrible thing, hard to let go of and so controlling, but God is in control.Thank you for help me accept that truth.
    I will be reading it a 2nd time, taking notes to be prepared to help someone else be set free.
    Dr Cloud you were the perfect person to read your book, it felt very personal and conversational. From the time you started speaking I just wanted to hear what you had to say.There was so much care and concern in your voice, like you really want to help me personally. Thank you again.
