Your God is Too Safe: Rediscovering the Wonder of a God You Can’t Control (Multnomah, 2001) (Multnomah, 2001)

Your-God-is-Too-Safe-194x300This was my first book, and it’s close to my heart. It’s really a book of spiritual disciplines for Jonahs: God-evaders who want to become God-chasers. I coined two phrases in YGiTS that have had far-reaching impact: ‘Borderland’, which describes half-in, half-out Christianity; and “the Holy Wild,” which describes life to the full with the God who is not safe, but good. YGiTS is really a sustained invitation to leave Borderland and live in the Holy Wild.
