Yawning at Tigers: You Can’t Tame the Almighty, So Stop Trying

By Drew Dyck

Many of us have fashioned a domesticated deity—a casual, malleable source of love and good feelings as we define them—and yet our spiritual lives are sedate, dry, devoid of passion or purpose.

Even so, today’s postmodern epidemic of rampant restlessness—and our failed, often destructive attempts to ease it—may be evidence of an ancient ache, a deep hunger for transcendence in all of us.

Drew Nathan Dyck makes a compelling case that the more we all seek is available by knowing and worshiping the dangerous God of Scripture—a God who is paradoxically untamable and accessible, impossibly mysterious and intimately knowable, above and beyond our physical world yet powerfully present within it.

I’m looking forward to reading this latest book from my friend Drew Dyck. I expect this volume will be very helpful in connecting with Millennials–and helping them connect with our dangerous God.
