About "Your God is Too Safe"

Here's a thoughtful, probing exploration of why Christians get stuck in the place of complacency, dryness, and tedium -- and how to move on to new levels of spiritual passion! Buchanan shows how the majority of Christians begin their spiritual journey with excitement and enthusiasm -- only to get bogged down in a "borderland" -- an in-between space beyond the "old life" but short of the abundant, adventurous existence promised by Jesus. Citing Jonah, he examines the problem of "borderland living" -- where doubt, disappointment, guilt, and wonderlessness keep people in a quagmire of mediocrity -- then offers solutions ... effective ways to get unstuck and move into a bold, unpredictable, exhilarating walk with Christ. Inspired writing!
- Publisher

Theological depth with pastoral warmth are offered in this inspiring, first-person "spiritual geography" based on Jonah from Mark Buchanan. Rich with stories, references, and quotes from great -- and simple -- people of faith. Clear, stylish typeset, with user-friendly links to referenced Scripture.
- Publisher

Have you lost the fiery faith that burned brightly when you first believed? Are you stuck in a limbo of spiritual dryness? Explore the "borderland" of comfortable complacency where many Christians dwell, find the cause of doubt, disappointment, and lack of wonder---and discover ways to boldly move into a new land of passion for Christ. 240
