Your God is Too Glorious: Finding God in the Most Unexpected Places, 2nd Edition
Most of us are regular people who have good days and bad days. Our lives are radically ordinary and unexciting. That means they’re the kind of lives God gets excited about. While the world worships beauty and power and wealth, God hides his glory in the simple, the mundane, the foolish, working in unawesome people, things, and places.
In our day of influencer worship and online posturing, this is a refreshing, even transformative way of understanding God and our place in his creation. It urges us to treasure a life of simplicity, to love those whom the world passes by, to work for God’s glory rather than our own. And it demonstrates that God has always been the Lord of the cross--a Savior who hides his grace in unattractive, inglorious places.
Your God Is Too Glorious reminds readers that while a quiet life may look unimpressive to the world, it’s the regular, everyday people that God tends to use to do his most important work.
Now available in a second edition, Chad Bird invites the reader to go deeper into the pursuit of the faithful, ordinary life with study questions at the end of each chapter for personal or corporate use.
