Publisher's Summary

In today's psychological culture, we have become a people more concerned with solving our problems than finding God. Suffer low self-esteem? Get counseling. Unfulfilled in life? Join a recovery group. But solving problems is not the point, argues Dr. Larry Crabb. In fact, whenever we place a higher priority on solving our problems than on pursuing God, we are being immoral!

Dr. Crabb demonstrates that our deepest problem and worst sin is doubting God. When we doubt God's goodness, when we think that god cannot be trusted with the things that matter most, we will quietly, but with tight-lipped resolve, take over responsibility for our own well-being - with disastrous results.

In his most compelling book since Inside Out, Dr. Crabb upsets the cozy Christianity of the modern believer. He reveals anew God's top priority: not our comfort and gratification, but his glory.

Critic Reviews

In perfect order!!!

Starting with relatable struggles of others accompanied by their doubts of God...then the best part. Question asked during lifes turmoil, the reasoning behind those moments, the need to reflect on those moments followed by....peace. I'm beyond grateful for this book. Repeat!!

Very Enlightening

This book reminded me of the importance of keeping up with my quest of seeking to know God. It gave me insights on how to find God even in the midst of life's dispare. Provided me a certain level of understanding how to deal with my relationships, both horizontally and vertically.
This book is a great read.

Confusing!

If this is the Abridged version (I didn't check), it's been too radically cut. I couldn't follow it really! There was a section which I believe contained heavy irony, that I just didn't understand! If it didn't contain irony, then that's even worse, because I didn't 'get' it!!! I'm not even encouraged to read the book, but I feel that, whatever aim the book was trying to achieve, was lost on me!

I shall try something else written by Dr Crabb, to assess whether it's me, or him!
