How to find a meaningful, constructive God
In YOUR GOD IS TOO SMALL, J.B. Phillips explains that the trouble facing many of us today is that we have not found a God big enough for our modern needs. In a world where our experience of life has grown in myriad direction, and our mental horizons have been expanded to the point of bewilderment by world events and scientific discoveries, our ideas of God have remained largely static.
It is nearly impossible, Phillips argues, for an adult to worship the conception of God that exists in the mind of a child of Sunday-school age, the "God-in-a-box" notion, limiting God to such inadequate conceptions as "Resident Policemen," "Grand Old Man," "Meek-and-Mild", and "Managing Director." As a result of these insufficient ideas of God, many people live with an inner dissatisfaction, without any faith at all.
YOUR GOD IS TOO SMALL explores the ways in which we can find a truly meaningful and constructive God for ourselves, big enough to account for our current experience of life and big enough to command our highest admiration and respect. 128 pages, from Touchstone.
In this fascinating assessment of how people perceive God today, Phillips examines inadequate conceptions of God and lays out ways in which to find a meaningful, constructive God.
J.B. Phillips died in 1983. A canon of the Anglican church, his works include "The Newborn Christian" and his highly acclaimed translation "The New Testament in Modern English."
