One of the most common problems with Christians in our modern secularized world is that they don't feel the reality of Jesus. Sure, they believe in him and love him, but he somehow doesn't seem to enter their daily lives in a real sense. Some might say, "You ought to pray more." Others would advise, "You ought to witness more." While this may be true, we don't get closer to God just because we "ought to." Boyd believes that the way to true spiritual transformation and feeling the presence of God in your life comes from a little R and R: rest and reality. Boyd encourages readers to stop striving and learn to rest in an experience of Jesus as real. The best way to do this, he says, is through imaginative prayer. Experiencing Jesus will teach readers how to use God's gracious gift of creative imagination to know him better and feel his presence in their daily lives.
"The imagination is one of the great, untapped capacities of the Christian soul, and imaginative prayer is like diving into the ocean and discovering a world of wonders never before glimpsed or even guessed at. Read Seeing is Believing and discover the great gift from God that you may have been missing."--Luci Shaw, author of Water My Soul"Gregory Boyd has a way of cutting through all the jargon to get at essential truths. So many books on spirituality offer 'pie in the sky' solutions, but not Seeing Is Believing. I love the way Boyd explains and helps us to live out the true identity that we have in Jesus Christ."--Robert Webber, author of The Younger Evangelicals"This is one of the most comprehensive books ever written on the subject. Tracing from the early church right up to present day writers, it is scholarly, biblical, and thoroughly Christ-centered. I believe it will not only clear away much misunderstanding, but inspire many to experience the healing freedom and deeper relationship with Jesus that comes through imaginative prayer."--David A. Seamands, author of Healing for Damaged Emotions
